“Good choice for those on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

I stayed here mostly because it was about the cheapest ensuite room I could find anywhere in Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux or anywhere else on the lake, but it was pretty good. My room was comfortable and there were at least a couple of English TV channels. The bathroom was pretty compact and the shower with clingy cheap curtain was something of a let down considering how pleasant everything else was.

The location is excellent - only ten minutes from the station and local restaurants and although you might not get a lake view from your room, there is one 20 metres outside the front door.

Didn't have the breakfast (plenty of other options locally) so can't comment. Staff were friendly but rather disorganised. I left one morning at 9am and when I got back eight hours later the cleaner was still working in my corridor, and hadn't got to my room yet. So the place can hardly be described as slick, but since they are apparently charging much less than the nearest alternatives I'd had a good deal.

This hotel is in a great location, close to the casino, several restaurants & a 10 minute walk to the train station.

The hotel is clean & has a tv, coffee/ tea making facilities, comfortable bed, good shower, wardrobe. Montreux is expensive so for c£80/ night this is a really decent hotel in comparison. If you just need somewhere clean and comfortable to stay in a convenient & quiet location then stay here.

If you want luxury then you would be best staying somewhere else & pay another £100/ night! I would compare this hotel to a premier lodge in the UK.

Breakfast is at an additional costs but there are lots of lovely bakeries near by at a fraction of the cost.

Room Tip: You can request a view of the lake.

Stayed here in the winter, due to the auto show filling up Geneva hotels. I found the staff to be brusque and they did not seem to hold hospitality as a primary tenet. The room itself was clean and cute, but the shower was not a well designed (billowy curtain, poort quality shower head, slow drain). The charging system for wifi is also unfortunate. After staying at a local-flavor two-star hotel elsewhere in Switzerland, Bon Port was a bit of a disappointment. The price wasn't that high by Swiss standards, but two-stars is probably closer to it than three.

The hotel is nothing special, but clean and most important easily accessible. We had a room with no Lake view, however we didn't need it at all.
The Hotel is located next to the casino, just steps away from the beach. There is a private parking - for a fee - (be cautious while parking - getting into the parking is narrow).
There is no Wi-Fi reception in the rooms, but there is a PC connected to internet opposite to reception.
For one night stay - excellent price/place.

Room Tip: We were 4 (kids 8 and 12) and we booked a quadruple bed room, which is actually a room with double b...

This hotel was a good option to explore Montreux. It is a walking distance from the Lac Lemann, Old Montreux and Centre Gare. Near to bus stops too. The staff was really friendly and helpful (we arrived late at night and they was gentle to help us to order some pizza to eat in the room). The room was confortable, but not very new. The bathroom was ok, but the shower used to leave the bathroom a little wet. They doesnt have baby cribs. Our oldest son slept in single bed, but we improvised with our 1year old girl.

We stayed at the Bon Port for two nights. We had booked the hotel as this was the cheapest place available. (Switzerland is expensive). The place was difficult to find in the beginning. The hotel is near the Montreux Casino by the lake. Once we arrived we were greeted by the sweetest receptionist i had ever met. Our room was really beautiful. i did not expect such a room at the price i piad. (110 CHF/ night) It was well decorated with lots of colours. The toilet was clean. The location of the hotel is actually fantastic. Its by the lake. Lots of places to eat nearby. The Chateau de Chillon is about 25 min walking distance from the hotel. Very highly recommended! Couples would love this!

Room Tip: Ask for the room overlooking the main road

-Day3;We went to Montreux by Golden Pass Express.I booked Hotel Bon Port,we could early checked-in.Then we went to the impressive Chateau de Chillon.We had dinner at Chinese restaurant,le Basilic,near the hotel.We chose Chinese fondue(meat fondue-looks like what we call in my country-sukiyaki or jim-jum).It's the buffet dinner,all you can eat so we enjoy eating very much.
Bon Port is a small hotel near the lake,small room but bright lovely color,clean,comfort,nice staff and much value for money.We're glad to stay here for 2 days(there is coffee in the room).
-Day4;We went to Lausanne by train and took on boat back to Montreux to see the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces in different view,surely we must took the photos with the famous Chalie Chaplin's statue at Vevey.
-Day5;After I took my baggage that I send from Zurich airport at the first day I arrived,we went to Tasch.We stayed here for 2 days just in case the weather wasn't clear to see the Metterhorn.I booked the Hotel Elite,just 200 meters from the train station.The lovely staff checked the weather and told me to get the Gonergrat train,CHF32(Swiss Pass and group travel).Becuse it was low season,after 8 pm there was no one at reception,we just use the roomkey to open the main door(some hotel is the same).If you have to check-out in the morning,you should tell the staff and pay the money before.This hotel is small,convenient,clean,
friendly staff but a little bit noisy from the train.It isn't suffer to walk back to the hotel in cold weather.
-Day6;We took the train to Visp and Brig,walking around the cities.We went to Zermatt where we have dinner here.The restaurant Walliserhof that we must recommend,cheese fondue and raclette are OK but the must is steak(9 points from 10).Took the train back to Tasch(12 min. from Zermatt).
-Day7;I send one of my baggage contained unwashed clothes from Tasch to Zurich airport,amazing how convenient to travel in Switzerland.Then we went to Zermatt to the Glacier Express to Chur(seat reservation-thanks for the advise by tripadviser expert).Having lunch on the GE is so impressive,I like to see the meal served while the train climbing up the mountain.I stayed at JBN Hotel,so I 'll continue the review in JBN Hotel because I like this hotel.
