This is a beautiful building with great atmosphere and right on the lake with spectacular views. Easy metro ride to the city, although the walk is pleasant. I liked the fact that I could step out the door and walk along the lake. It is pricy to eat and drink at the hotel.

This is the luxury hotel experience without any pretentiousness. The room was beautiful, very comfortable with ultra modern shower, overlooking the lake near where the boats depart. The quirky lobby, a glass roofed courtyard of the castle, was beautiful and all staff couldn't have been more helpful, kind and friendly. Room service was quick and more importantly delicious. If you...

Le Château d'Ouchy is not only a hotel but also one of Lausanne's more spectacular dining experiences. Set on the banks of Lake Léman on a small peninsular, this impressive building has been modernised to a point where it now enjoys a far finer reputation that it did in its earlier days. Entering by the main door, one must pass...

Since I am coming often to Lausanne with business purposes, I have stayed at different hotels, but everytime I look up first to stay at this delightful gem! Wonderfully located at lake Leman, in an old castle-like building, this place always make feel welcome. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfy and the pillows perfect (I am pretty pretentious when...

This is a lovely historic hotel that has been tastefully designed and updated with all mod cons you might want. At this price you can expect a very high level of customer service and this place delivers with friendly and helpful staff and nothing seemed too much trouble. We had a superb view of the lake too. It's a little...

I had been debating for days about whether or not I should stay at the Beau Rivage, or the Chateau d'Ouchy, but I'm so glad I stayed at the latter! First, it's a real castle, and it has so much charm that speaks to that. The rooms are just comfortable and modern enough, but you still feel like you're staying...

As much as this hotel is set in a wonderful setting - renovated castle, on the shore of Lake Geneva, etc. I had some trouble finding sleep. The rooms (at least on the 5th floor) are renovated with a floor that does not absorb noise which means you can hear all of your neighbors' steps along with their doors opening...

My wife and I were amongst the first guests to book into the Chateau D'Ouchy after this hotel was extensively renovated and reopened in 2008 and, since then, we have returned regularly to enjoy the incredibly beautiful surroundings and the warmth that the hotel's staff unpretentiously affords one. If one seeks understated and relaxed luxury then this is the place...

D'Ouchy is one of a half dozen top tier hotels in Lausanne but for my money it ranks right at the top of the list. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly and the location of the hotel is second to nine with magnificent views of Lake Geneva, the Swiss Alps and the twin of Evian. There is a park...

First of all its a castle and gives you an amazing feeling. Its located exactly near the lake! Room is very comfortable but a little small due to location I guess. The service is better then is some 5 star hotel. In general I highly recommend !
