The hotel is lovely and old-fashioned, just as I like it. The staff was very good and the room facing the lake spacious and airy with a little balcony. But beware: if you are noise sensitive you might be disturbed by the sound of the road below. However, closing the balcony door at night solves this problem.
We wanted to have a nightcap in Harry's Bar but the noise levels were much too high and so we left this out. Then we wanted to have a smoke but were told that smoking is only allowed outside. Not being able to smoke inside in a 5 star hotel is totally incomprehensible to us as most 5 star hotels we have visited here in Switzerland either have a fumoir or you are allowed to smoke in certain rooms.
Breakfast was fine but CHF 40 for what was actually on offer (nothing our of the ordinary) was much too expensive.

My family and I stayed here this past March and found it to be fantastic. The rooms were huge, comfortable, immaculate and, most importantly, connecting! We travel often and though I always request connecting rooms in advance, it is rare that they're actually available upon check-in. The location was great; our rooms had a view overlooking lake. We were able to walk to everything, including Chateau Chillon. The staff was friendly and attentive, without ever being intrusive. We arrived 5 hours prior to the normal check-in time, exhausted from an overnight flight. They set us up in the spa and suggested we nap for an hour or so while they prepared our room, which was exactly what we needed. Our rate included breakfast and was well worth it. There was an abundance of choices and the setting was quite nice, in a very sunny conservatory style room. All in all, it was as close to perfect as I've ever experienced at a hotel.

We had an amazing two nights at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace. The room was outstanding and very comfortable. The spa was lovely, the food was terrific and the staff were exceptional.

A special mention to Jean-Charles who made our stay and my birthday extra special. Thank you.

Rain our entire stay could not dampen our experience. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're thinking about a stay in Montreux.

Stayed for three nights for a conference. The facilities are good, the pool is nice. The views are spectacular. The food was a notch above the norm for a conference venue, but probably wasn't worth the high cost, though a Swiss venue is always going to be pricey. The room was clean, but housekeeping was a bit patchy in terms of leaving towels and bath mats, they seemed to randomly appear and disappear.
