The place is kept clean but needs refurbishment. The amenities are breaking down here and there. The swimming pool is of good size; unfortunately, they have a plastic separator all along which takes one full line of swimming. Apparently it is for kids, but there was no kid around... The water was tepid, hence, not very comfortable. It was definitely...

We had a 3 day holiday at the fairmont palace from May 22-25. The hotel is a palace in intelf, gorgeous from inside out and in one of the best tourist spots in montreux. The reason to give my review a 4.5 is the service at the hotel. This is one factor that separates the good hotels from the ones...

The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable and that was clearly the high point of the hotel, apart from all the other pluses that go with an iconic Fairmont property. The property is on the banks of Lake Geneva, where you can spend days walking, cycling, chatting, eating and drinking. We walked up to Freddie...

This hotel is first rate overlooking the lake. Early morning walks are a must to see the sun kiss the mountains opposite. The breakfast is a buffet style with very attentive wait staff. The room was very good with coffee making facilities. From the moment you walked in to the moment you left everything was first class

It had been years since I'd been here and had been wanting to return with DH. But I didn't quite remember the hotel I stayed at last time and booked the Fairmont by mistake. Very happy that I did. It's understated luxury with everything you need already in it's place. Ask for a room with a view of the lake...

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights on a company sponsored incentive trip. The room we had was in the old part of the hotel, very comfortable and updated. We had a "cute" little side balcony that had a spectacular view of Lake Geneva and the mountains. Generally speaking the service was very good and the staff friendly. We...

Many good hotels claim the title Palace but only a few are a true Palace as this one is.
