Fantastic hotel, fantastic staff. Would highly recommend to everyone. Nice place to go with the family or as a couple. The hotel is in the heart of Montreux with easy access to transport, shopping and restaurants.

We stayed for a weekend at the fairmont a few weeks ago! The hotel is a beautiful piece of architecture! It is a real palace but renovated and with all the modern comfort!

We stayed for two nights at Montreux Palace and can't say enough good things about it. Our room faced the hotel gardens and Lake Geneva. (Got great photos from the balcony!) The room itself was beautiful and so comfortable. Breakfast in their lovely Terrace room was great and hospitality welcoming. We were seated facing the gardens. The hotel furnishing are... More

Beautiful Old World hotel, right on Lac Leman. Wake up and look out at the stunning mountains right across the lake. Vaulted ceilings, chandeliers... it really felt like a palace! Staff were wonderfully helpful and welcoming, with tips for restaurants and what to see. Only suggestion for improvement would be the room decor - compared to the luxurious grandeur of... More

I love this 5 star hotel, they now know me and by the time I arrive my room is ready. I missed the clock in the room this time. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast is just out of this world- healthy and great variety! Cheers. I love this place.

We approached the Fairmont on the last leg of our week's Swiss wedding anniversary tour with some forebodings because of their failure to reply to three emails about our dining arrangements and membership of the Fairmont President's Club.

The Palace is a fitting name for this fabulous hotel. Everything about it - location, view, exterior, rooms, spa and service - are over-the-top. Too bad Montreux is such a great city, otherwise we would have been content to simply spend our entire time holed up in our room. Dinner at the Montreux Jazz Café was delicious and the staff...
