I stayed four nights in late August 2013 with my partner, paying approx. £136 per night for a standard room.
On the positive side, the hotel has a great location, overlooking the lake, in the pretty village of Lutry. Great for lakeside walks! And the rooms have been refurbished to a high standard.
On the negative side:
a) the usual Swiss hospitality was completely lacking, without any warmth or charm. We did not feel welcome.
b) the standard rooms are very small in size, without any proper place to put clothes - we had to live out of our suitcases
c) room 222 backed onto a courtyard, with a noisy wind turbine/ pump going on and off throughout the night, and we were subjected to occasional unpleasant smells of stale cooking oil
d) the Housekeeping was not up the usual high Swiss standards
e) the room maintenance is poor; out telephone did not work and took 2 days to fix; one of the bedside lights did not work; the bathroom sink was partially blocked; and internet access from this room was too slow to be useful.
f) the hotel has no car park, so it is very inconvenient for people travelling by car; there is a small unloading area, but otherwise you have to leave your car on the street (blue zone limited to a single hour) or a car park 5 mins away costing 0.80 Swiss Francs an hour
g) we did not have breakfast in the restaurant because we found a local café that provided a good breakfast at half the price; we had two meals in the restaurant: evening dinner for two, when the food was good and beautifully presented, with great service; then later we had lunch with extended family; this was less good - the food was disappointing and the service lacking - we had to pour our own wine
