We stayed here at the end of a skiing holiday in France This is a good hotel in a nice position next to the beautiful lake with lovely views over the lake and the mountains a sort of Toblerone advert we thought! It is well decorated with a feeling of history. Big wide corridors to the rooms, with music playing softly in the background. Nice rooms, but no tea or coffee making facilities which is nice to have when you are travelling frequently and just want to be able to make a cup of tea! The spa/gym area we enjoyed, the steam room and sauna was good - there wasn't anyone else there when we used it (there didn't seem to be anyone else in Vevey either - very quiet place!) however two of the gym machines were not working for the duration of our stay and that seemed unacceptable considering the standard of the hotel. We had a comfortable stay and particularly liked the receptionist for her professionalism and hospitality. It turned out she was in training at the hotel, and she was excellent at her job. Apparently you can get bikes from the hotel and cycle around the lake, but there were no bikes available to us during the winter season. We found an ice skating rink just a few minutes walk away and a couple of good restaurants, although our best restaurant was a seafood Italian restaurant in Montreux which was fabulous, but I cant remember the name! if you are walking along the main road in Montreux it is on the left hand side and it displays all the seafood on top of ice outside. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but there were lots of cafes nearby for good breakfasts. We also used the free buses (hotel gives you a pass) so we got the feel of the place and didn't have to drive.
