                  • Perfect view on the lake and good luxury hotel. Very beautiful building, nice interior and the staff throughout were all very friendly and helpful. Room 407 was a huge, breakfast was excellent and freshly squeezed fruit juice was delicious.

                    The mini bar was broken and there were no drinking glasses, spa was limited in choice.

Hotel service was excellent, prices in the minibar were reasonable and our suite overlooking the lake was lovely. Great restaurants were also within walking distance, the staff were very nice and the bed was wonderfully comfortable, and the bathroom spacious.

                    Pool areas are a bit too small, reception and Concierge are not guest friendly, burgers etc. Breakfast is also expensive at 40 Swiss Francs.

                  • The location is very good, stuff is friendly and modern decoration Space everywhere and quiet. The service at the spa could not be worse, rooms are large and the breakfast terrace is very pleasant and the brasserie offers excellent food. Facilities and pure Swiss charm in blissful way, the indoor pool and the outdoor one are located there.

                    Concierge is fairly surprisingly weak for a raffles hotel and some prices are absolutely ridiculous. The staff are not helpful at all.

                  • Great location, gorgeous design and staff were very courteous and helpful. Bed was really really comfortable and the food at the Jaan restaurant was excellent. The spa was also a little disappointing.

                    The rooms were much smaller than the photographs advertised.

                  • Mountain view from the room is fantastic, Montreux Palace is a historical and the staff is uniquely friendly. Tony in the piano bar is a true professional and is good to talk too, the food is excellent too, an outdoor pool is a must.

                    Spa prices are high.
