We stayed here for 2 nights in August 2008. The hotel is in a great location, right on the lakeside, with stunning views. It is really convenient for public transport and the boats on Lake Geneva. Ouchy waterfornt is a great spot - lovely promenades and public squares with a great atmosphere and a range of cafes and restaurants.

The hotel is clean, attractive and comfortable, with its own restaurant and bar. I'd definitely recommend it to others. We didn't experience any problem with noise from the road.

The hotel provides you with a free public transport card during your stay, so it's no problem visiting the old town/city centre of Lausanne.

The Hotel Du Port, located in the lakeside Ouchy area of Lausanne provides nice accommodations at a fairly reasonable price. The area surrounding the hotel is quite expensive due its resort status. The Beau Rivage stands guard next door, keeping prices high and the clientele exclusive. Unfortunately the location is not overly convenient as a trip on a bus is necessary to reach the old town and the main rail station. (The Metro, a light rail system is currently under construction, the bus is its temporary replacement.) Excluding Lake Geneva across the street, the only "attraction" nearby is the Olympic Museum, which is a must see.

The rooms in the hotel are well appointment with rich wood covering the closet area, the bathrooms are moderately sized with good water pressure. The decorating is crisp with rich drapery and softer than usual carpet. The property was kept very clean and the staff was helpful. The attached restaurant is acceptable, albeit expensive.

Great family run hotel by the lake, better than it looked on the website. Took our 4 month old son and hotel was very accomodating. All staff we encountered were very friendly and willing to let us attempt some French. Opted for a lake view room which had amazing views and was spotlessly clean. There were some great looking restaurants along the waterfront, worth visiting Restaurant de la Croix d'Ouchy on Avenue d'Ouchy which is about a 10 minute walk up the hill towards the town centre - great homecooked Italian food (doesn't look much from the outside). Would definately recommend the hotel, the only downside is the 20 minute walk up hill to the town centre but there are plenty of buses if you fancy the easy option.

We have just returned from Lausanne having stayed 5 nights at the Du Port. As other reviewers have said there is road noise if you have a Lake view room but the views more than compensate. The hotel is a nice size, rooms are well furnished and looked after. The restaurant is very popular with tourists & locals the food is good & very well presented, with the option to eat on the terrace as well. All the staff were friendly & helpful. The breakfast was buffet style & well presented with what you would expect in Switzerland.
The location in Ouchy means you have to use the bus into the centre currently there are 2 services as the Metro is undergoing renovation. The bus service is very frequent & reliable & is only a few minutes to either the station or the town centre. Would definatley stay here again.

We were finding it difficult to find a decent hotel at a decent price when we came across this hotel via Lausanne Tourism. Previous reviewers influenced our decision and we were very pleased with the location and price. It was good value for money in an expensive city. Would highly recommend it for convenience of finding it, its handy locality to trolley buses into the city, view and boat trips on the lake.
