You cannot miss this beautiful building sitting on lake Geneva in the port of Ouchy. The red tiled roof is a real feature and adds to the waterfront skyline. Beautifully decorated for Christmas it is a lovely spot for a cup of coffee.

Lovely Hotel overlooking Lake Geneva with the Alps as the backdrop. Beautifully simple elegant rooms and the dining room is absolutely serene. They have a wide variety of choices for breakfast and a cozy lounge for quiet conversations. There are several choices for dining within walking distance and the metro is merely minutes away if you want to explore the... More

I regularly go for a drink there as it is a beautiful place in one of the best city location by the lake. The interior is glamour and service impeccable. They have meeting rooms and it is a serene place to meet romantically or organize business meetings.

Had poached egg in artichoke purée with truffle oil (really?!). Tiny tasteless portion with undercooked egg at the incredible price of CHF 28. One vegetarian dish: risotto. Not outstanding. Nice environment and service.

I had dinner here this evening. An all round amazing culinary experience! We were welcomed so heartily and warmly that I knew we would not be disappointed for choosing Chateau d'Ouchy as the establishment to have dinner in. The food was so scrumptious and the presentation was A+! I had the shrimp with turmeric as a starter and the chicken... More

The hotel is situated on Lake Léman (Geneva) in a beautiful edifice dating from the 12th century. While the hotel is contemporary inside, it is warm and inviting. We prepaid our room in order to have a lake view and it is magnificent! The room feels spacious with its tall ceilings and the bathroom is large. The bar and lobby... More

Very nice hotel in a former castle. We had a beautiful room facing the lake. My only complaint is the room was quite dry, there felt like no humidity. And the pillows were too soft and light. The view was lovely though and the room was nice.

Very nice chateau located almost in the waterfront of the Lac Leman. Very near the marina and easy to find. It offers hotel facilities as well a restaurant. Go there as it will give you a relaxing time to sit outside on the terras in summertime!

Dined here last night and ate inside due to impending rain, but restaurant also offers patio seating as well, with excellent views of the lake. Very good wait staff. Perch is the dish to order, accompanied by a small salad and French fries. Steak tartare was mediocre - not particularly flavorable. Nice ambience. Worth a visit.

Nice place with a beautiful view on the lake but unpleasant to see a rate crossing the terrace of the bar
