A nice hotel with exceptional location. The front rooms offer a wonderful view and seem to have recently been refurbished (although with rather cheap materials and soundproofing seems to have been omitted from the work- list!). Equipment is standard, including tee/coffee, but something to put your luggage on would have been expected, bed too soft. Anyway the general impression in our room was very good. Spa ok with a very small sauna and steam-bath (that you have to enjoy with you swimsuit as they are in the same room as the swimming pool). Good wifi. Good breakfast. Free parking.

Great hotel set amongst the stunning Vaud vineyards. Rooms are clean and comfortable and you really can't beat the view from the lakeside rooms. There is a cool bar on site as well as a restaurant. Hotel is a five minute walk into the village of Chexbres and easy to get to via the train station if you don't have a car. As tourists we got to take advantage of the free local transport card which meant we could visit nearby Lausanne, Vevey and Montreux from our base in Chexbres. We loved being up in the terraced vineyards, looking out at Lac Leman and the cute little villages dotted around. A different part of Switzerland!

An absolutely perfect spot to explore the Lavaux region. You can not beat the views. Book a suite, the large terraces are completely worth it. One can lounge at The deck bar for hours. And the manager is brilliant. Also the manager at the restaurant is incredibly welcoming, engaging and made the night special. The food is nothing special and pricey. But again, you can’t beat the views!

This hotel was beyond my expectations. I toured Montreaux and stayed in Vevey one night upon arrival from the USA, and I’m so glad we decided to spend our last 3 nights here. The rooms are spacious and the view is mesmerizing- a totally different feel than Montreaux or Vevey. We picked the junior suite as a splurge and felt like royalty. We wandered down one night for dinner at Le Deck and just loved it. And this last night we had just drinks and nosh food in the bar area. We did not have a car and used public transportation entirely. This minor inconvenience was well worth the views and ambience. Oh, and breakfasts are fantastic here. This hotel is one of our best finds ever.

We had a room in the main building and the views across the lake are just tremendous from our porch. The room was nicely decorated and clean with a large and handsome bathroom.
We were there during a heatwave and were jealous as some rooms appear to have ceiling fans (maybe?). With no AC in the rooms - common in CH - it did make the experience a bit warmer than expected.

Front desk staff were helpful and warm.

The restaurant is stellar. Great service and cuisine. The view is amazing.

We'd happily stay there again.

The location of the small hotel is perfect! One of the most beautiful spots ever!
The staff were very professional and friendly. The room was like a five star room. Seemed newly decorated. The highlight was the views from the very spacious terrace with sun chairs; perfect relaxation after a hike in the vineyards. Also the bar “The Deck” below was spectacular. Excellent value for money, will definitely visit again!

I am a travel writer and spend a great deal of time carefully choosing unique hotels as I know how one can misinterpret internet photographs. The choice of a hotel can make or break a travel experience and render the journey truly memorable or eminenty forgettable.

I was on a research trip to Switzerland as I am writing for a new book concerning a glamorous concert pianist active in the 1920s. Everyone knows the country is frighteningly expensive just now with the strength of the Swiss Franc added to the generally stratospheric Swiss prices (complained about since the eighteenth century incidentally).

I needed to stay in a hotel near Montreux for a week. The Hotel du Lac at Vevey was magnificent but outrageously expensive (even with a longer-stay discount) as were most of the finer hotels in Montreux as the famous jazz festival was soon to begin. So I thought I would be clever and stay in a small picturesque village on the shores of Lake Geneva.

A big error of judgement. I had consulted an outdated Red Michelin Guide to Switzerland and it had given Le Baron Tavernier the much sought after red designation. When I consulted the 2011 guide (too late) I noticed it has now lost that accolade but remains in the guide. Always buy the latest guide. Spend a few pounds to save more serious disappointment later. Beware the designation 'Hotel-Restaurant' if planning a longer stay anywhere.

Le Baron Tavernier is basically a restaurant with rooms that caters for one or two night stays over weekends. A noisy road runs just beneath the balcony of very small double rooms with uncomfortably tiny bathrooms and thin walls (draw your own conclusions on that one). The view of the Vaud vineyards and mountains is truly spectacular if you are given a room with a balcony at the front. The staff are charming and friendly but are forced to work in both restaurant and hotel and the hotel services, such as they are, suffer as a result. The fashionable restaurant known as 'Le Deck' is one of the finest relatively affordable trendy restaurants on Lake Geneva with equally stunning views and excellent food.

However the managemant have forgotten the hotel or no longer consider it a priority with such a successful restaurant - Ferraris and Porsches always parked outside. The reception is effectively only part-time (ring a number on a mobile placed on a deserted counter for attention), no help with luggage, a tiny 'service' lift near the kitchens and cooking smells pervading the entire establishment. No air conditioning - I needed a fan which was helpfully supplied. All this would be alright at half the price or less but I felt exploited and misled as it considers and markets itself as a luxury hotel yet with none of the expected facilities of one. Really miserable, parsimonious breakfast was included considering the excellent restaurant potential. I decided to change after two nights.

I moved to the Hotel Victoria for the remainder of my stay. This is a superb Relais and Chateaux establishment situated in the charming village of Glion above Montreux priced at slightly less than Le Baron for a double room.

This hotel is one of the finest I have ever stayed in and richly deserves its red designation in the 2011 Red Michelin Guide. What a contrast for less money! A spacious room with antique furniture, large luxurious bathroom wth costly fittings, towelling robes, a superb restaurant with extensive breakfast included, an elegant dining terrace overlooking the lake from high above, swimming pool, fitness room, magnificent public spaces finely and tastefully decorated with valuable paintings and objets d'art, carefully tended extensive gardens with an equally spectacular if not superior view. Staff that go out of their eay to be helpful. Noel Coward stayed at this hotel for a year and a tetchy Somerset Maugham often visited. If you are ever planning to visit Lake Geneva near Montreux and have a car this is the only place you should consider. I simply never wanted to leave.

As for Le Baron Tavernier - excellent restaurant but with an attached wildly overpriced so-called 'hotel'. Unless you are incapable at the wheel after the fine Vaud wines and food at 'Le Deck' and need a bed for the night - forget it.

Oh....and I told them all this before I left so this review will not come as a shock to the management.

Incompetent, unfriendly, avoid by all means. They don't respect clients and agreements. The managment is hiding when you want to discuss the problems. Seems to be the toy of a rich highly selfish owner.

Location is beautiful but quality of service was not in line. We had to wait 20 minutes and out of patience went looking ourselves for someone to serve us. We were offered drinks which comsuption date was 6 months old.
The staff did not apologize nor seemed sorry, nothing was offered.

Will not come back nor recommend.
