HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 January 2017

I would not have enough words to describe how wonderful Montreux is, and what an amazing place the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is. The hotel is located right in front of the lake, which provides the most beautiful view, either from the rooms or the restaurant. I would strongly reccommend that you spend a morning having the most delicious breakfast...

Every part of this stay is unforgettable. The view from the room is amazing, the staff is friendly and the food is delicious. Enjoyed the pool, room service dinner on my patio and the walks by the lake.

I stayed in Fairmont Le Montreux for 4 days and what a lovely place. It still carries historic charm and great view to the lake. Location can't be better, its close to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions and also very quiet. Trail walk by the lake is a must. Breakfast buffet was wonderful, wide selection and I developed my beloved...

We went to Montreux for the Christmas market and stayed one night at the Fairmont. It has great view from the room balcony, overlooking the lake. The hotel is walking distant to the Christmas market, but not too near so it is not so crowded. The hotel was built in 1906 so it look tired from the outside but not...

I had never stay at such beautiful hotel before. I have been travelling for past 20 years and stayed in many luxurious hotels and this hotel tops it all. We were upgraded to Junior Suite to my husband's platinum status. It was a truly wonderful stay n the staff were very attentive and informative too.
