“Perfect in Every Way!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Hotel Angleterre is perfect! We just spent two nights there and can report that it really is as nice as you could ever hope for. The room was large and finished perfectly. Venetian plaster on the walls, mural on the ceiling, air conditioned, sound proofed window, room-darkening electric blinds, great view and lovely grounds. They also provide a card that gives you free access to the metro and buses.

As others have noted, it is an expensive place to stay but sometimes you just have to be prepared to pay more for the very best. Lausanne is an expensive place to visit so be prepared for everything to cost more than you would normally pay (especially alcohol, food and wine).

Stop reading and book now!

Angleterre & Residence Hotel is wonderful-- in just about every way. The buildings and grounds are beautiful; the location-- right by the lake-- is terrific; and the staff is excellent. It feels very European and very classy-- the reception is in a striking glass building with a large stone driveway, and the rooms are in a collection of handsome old buildings that have been completely renovated with beautiful design and top-quality materials.

My daughter and I were near the end of a 10 day bicycle trip across the Alps from Salzburg to Geneva and, at check out, I inadvertently left my glasses at the reception. An hour into our ride (and about 20 kilometers from Lausanne) a taxi called out to us... the hotel had sent him after us with my glasses.

Wonderful.

Our 4 nights at this hotel were beautiful. We had a very nice lake-facing room with a balcony. The views were gorgeous and being next to the Beau-Rivage Palace, we had access to their grounds and fancy restaurants. The staff was pleasant and the stay very relaxing.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra to get the lake-facing room...It's worth it!

We spent 2 nights in Lausanne - one in this hotel and one in Chateau d'ouchy, which is located next door to this one. The hotel has a very good location, close to harbor, where you can take a ferry around the lake. Angleterre & residence has a large territory with a small but nice swimming pool where you can enjoy yourself. The hotel itself consists of several blocks. We had a room not in the main building, but it was nice, overlooking the inner garden. The room was rather big for Swiss standards:) the stuff at the reception was very nice, offered to pay all the expenses in advance and didn't block any amount from the credit card. The breakfast was quite good, restaurant overlooking the lake. We enjoyed this place and will definitely stay there once again!

Good property, good staff! We had an infant and they helped us with our baby food. Always willing to offer a solution to simplify our stay. Located next to beau de ravage. Offers good lake views from the suite.

I have to travel to Lausanne every month with work, and to date have always stayed at the Movenpick, which is an excellent hotel. However this time I fancied a change, which was the right move.

On arrival the hotel already feels a little less corporate than others in Lausanne, in a good way, it has the air of French villa. I was shown to my room which was massive and had a lovely terrace which looked out over a pristine green with the mountains in the background. I didn’t have breakfast either morning but I did eat twice, once with room service and once in the Italian restaurant. The restaurant was very good, great choice, well cooked food and very good service. Not cheap but then not a lot in Lausanne is.

Whilst I love the Movenpick I came out of this business strip feeling much more relaxed than normal, and that is largely thanks to this lovely hotel. If it is sunny it also has the benefit of an outdoor pool.

If the cost is right then this will definitely be the hotel that I pick next time I am in Lausanne

The hotel is located right at the lake. Amazing view of lake and french alps. Very friendly service and extremely helpful staff. Clean and bright rooms. Hey, and there is a - unheated - pool, which we very much wanted to use but had no chance to as temperatures were too low.
