I hopped on the train at 5PM on a Friday and headed to the Grand Hotel du Lac for what was to be a relaxing, de-stressing weekend. I chose this hotel among the other grands in Vevey because if its smaller size, intimate feel and top restaurant. I was not disappointed. The rooms are beautifully appointed with plush towels (lots...

I didn't get the chance to stay at Hotel Du Lac this time in vevey, I was down the road at the Trois Courrones - however I know that on my next trip to Vevey the Du Lac will be top of my list. Christian was great and really looked after us on the two occasions we had dinner there.

We enjoyed 3 nights in this lovely old Relais & Chateaux hotel. We had a comfortable, elegant room overlooking the street (but well sound-proofed), with a very comfortable bed and excellent linens. We would have loved a lake-front view, as those rooms appear to have stunning views. The bathroom was big, with heated towel racks and a nice shower and...

This is one grand hotel. From every detail it is to the highest quality with professional and courteous staff, amazing views of the Lake and located close to everything. Restaurant is up there with some the best I have been and pricey too. But you get what you pay for, high dining isn't cheap.

Loved this hotel! Wonderful location, just far enough away from the crowds and just an easy stroll to everything. The view of the lake and Alps from our room was just stunning. The service at the hotel was excellent. They happily helped with any request or need. Every employee was delightful, especially, Simone, Marion, Marc and Yoann. The rooms was...

We spent two nights here and loved the experience. All the rooms have balconies facing Lake Geneva with amazing views of the lake and mountains. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was very spacious by European standards and our parking was free, which was a big bonus. We parked our car and walked or took train to...

Came here for an afternoon for two. Best to book in advance apparently for this (we hadn't), but the chef was able to do it without notice. All perfect save for the scones were clearly pre-made/ warmed from frozen - the first which we had to send back was closer to granite and the second was only just acceptable (score...

I stayed for a conference in this calm and pastoralist hotel in Vevey. The food is very good and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is just near the lake and an afternoon walk can be a pleasant experience. Well recommended.
