“Great location, beautiful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

We had a wonderful room with a lake view. The proximity to the train station makes this very convenient, especially if one has an early scenic train the next morning. Staff at the desk was excellent. It was a shame that the internet service only seemed to work for one computer. After I logged off and the wife tried, no luck. It's exensive, as is most of Montreux, but I feel we mostly got our money's worth. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the beds were quite comfortable. A balcony in the lake view side was a very nice addition for a sunny morning.

Room Tip: Perfect if you have lots of luggage and want an easy transfer to/from train station. Right on the l...

This is a very good 3 star hotel in Montreux. As most reviewers have noted, the location is ideal & the view from the balconies is amazing (for the lake view rooms).

Check-in experience:
Less than ideal - mix up in room type & however, corrected by the manager after a little discussion.

Room:
Deluxe lake view. Very nice, refurbished room. Bed a bit on the firmer side - I did not mind it. Room amenities left a lot to be desired - no in room information, dining menu, no alarm clock (or any clock), no in-room tea making facilities. A/c non adjustable/no info on how to. Thus missing some very basic stuff one would expect in a 4 star hotel.

Bathrooms are quite small, but very nice, good hot water & shower pressure (thankfully). Again, a bit sparse on amenities - only shower cap, shower gel, shampoo, tissues ( good quality stuff though - L'Occitaine).

Breakfast: 26 chf pp. OK value (for Switzerland)

Overall, if you are looking for luxury, the Fairmont up the road would be the place - however, at around half the cost of an equivalent Fairmont room, the Suisse Majestic is good value.

Great location - right opposite the train station and right on the lake front.
Rooms are spacious with balconies have great views. The balcony itself is very small and can just about fit in 2 chairs facing each other.
Air conditioning was very good.

Several things this hotel needs to fix:
1) Elevators were mostly not functioning; keys did not work and there was general confusion around the elevators. We stayed there for 3 nights and this was a daily occurrence with no apparent solution.
2) There is no direct access to the lakefront from the back of the hotel. Most of the hotels on the lakefront have a direct access to the road across which you have the lakefront. There seemed to be some construction ongoing and that meant that hotel guests had to take the public stairway down and up to get to the lakefront.
3) Breakfast is not included in the room rates. Most hotels in Switzerland offered a room with breakfast option that was not unreasonable. At CHF 52 per head for breakfast - i wonder what they serve for breakfast!
4) Layout of the rooms is odd - the same space can be utilized better. The bathroom door opens right next to the bed. The entrance to the bathroom can be on the other side (where there is currently an empty wall. There is also wasted space in an entryway which cannot be used.
5) Front desk staff while friendly was unable to help with reservations etc. Their suggestion was to log into the internet and figure it out ourselves! (though they did say it with a smile)

Room Tip: Lake view rooms with a balcony are a must. Corner rooms are larger with larger balconies.

Everything about this hotel was lovely, the view over the lake from reception, the bar, the restaurant, the list could go on. There were only 2 small things that stopped the hotel,getting 5 stars, one was the lack of parking meaning we had to leave the car in the station car park and two was that for the room price breakfast was not included.

Having said that though I would definitely stay here again if we come back to Montreux, although I may leave the car at home and come by train as the station is right across the street.

This hotel is just across the street from the train station and over looks the lake. It is clean ,quiet and some of the rooms have very spacious balconies to enjoy the view. There is a restaurant that was often very busy so I am assuming it is a good one, but also looked expensive. The front desk help was good and each one I spoke to was very fluent in English

Room Tip: Room 406,407 and I think 408 have extra large balconies
