I love staying in this hotel while working in Montreux, rooms have a wonderful view, are modern and clean and air conditioned. It's a quite old style hotel with a pool, the staff is very helpful. It's a little walk from the train station, I reccommend taking a taxi to the hotel if you have a lot of luggage. They have only a few parking spaces. Breakfast is good.

Grand, Victorian hotel situated in a picturesque location on the banks of Lake Geneva, 500 metres from Montreux centre …More
Me and a friend came to stay for the weekend and we were not disappointed! The room, the facilities and the bar/restaurant was lovely. We were lucky as the weekend we went was the Montreux Jazz Festival which could was on the doorstop of the hotel :) Overall, a great experience.
This is my second stay at the fairmont.
It's as superb as always.
The staff make sure you enjoy your stay especially the team at the restaurant.
The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with all what you might need.
The location is great to explore Montreux and surrounding regions.
The buffet breakfast is great with lots of variety and good quality food. i was traveling with kids and they loved it too.
Beautiful rooms, spacious and with individual balconies. The view was splendid. Breakfast is not included but the main city area is ~15 minutes downhill walk. Parking is 20 francs/night but right next door. It is not cheap, but then that's Switzerland. The train to Rocher de Naye stops right behind the hotel. Montreux main station is ~15 minutes walk downhill from the hotel.
Booked for one night in a double room. It was a functional, albeit old and badly arranged room, that had a view of the bay and a nice balcony. Would stay again based on budget and location (centre of city) alone, but probably aim for something nicer. They are being renovated, so maybe better in the future...

This hotel was wonderful. Clean, spacious and a friendly staff. It was in close walking distance to many restaurants on lake Geneva and within a ten minute walk to a local grocery store and train station.
Bordered by vineyards and Lake Geneva Bay, and set against a backdrop of the Alps, Montreux has a mild climate making it ideal for leisure travel. Visitors can spend time boating and sun bathing on the lake, or take in the local culture along the vibrant promenade. Montreux is filled with history and architecture, and is the location for the oldest casino in Switzerland. It is also the starting point for trains that provide transportation into mountains.
