This was my second stay at the Chateau and both stays were memorable. Once again, I was upgraded on checking in (although I have no idea why) with a great room facing the lake with a large bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower. The air conditioning was extremely quiet and I simply forgot it was on. I even got to...

For US$560 a night we got a nice junior suite in the tower. Location is great but service is unwilling and you feel like an intruder. We asked the concierge to help us book a room in restaurant and he answered he had to go so I was left without help. No coffee machine forces you to buy coffee or...

We had to spent 2 nights in Lausanne, one in this hotel, another in angleterre & residence located next to it. Actually it was my birthday when we were at this hotel. The parking was fool of cars (mostly they came to the local restaurant and bar) and we had to drive to the public car park, which wasn't very...

Family of four and we stayed in a Deluxe Suite with a terrace. Wasn't cheap (around CH 400), but it was an AMAZING room (and we're kinda picky). In an 800-year old tower with a spacious terrace looking out onto the lake. And the room itself was spacious and very well appointed. We didn't want to leave the room. Perfect...

This is a lovely hotel right on the lake. We sat outside to eat breakfast and the views were wonderful. Breakfast itself was only ok. We felt it was expensive for what it was. The rooms are lovely. We had a big bath, separate toilet and plenty of space. Nice shower over the bath. Lovely toiletries etc plus bath robes....

I have stayed several times in this hotel when visiting Lausanne on business.
