                          Getting there.

                          Geneva International Airport is only 45 minutes ride from the hotel. If you drive your car from Geneva you should head towards Lausanne through A1 motorway, and then take the Lausanne interchange to the A9 direction Simplon. Exit at Montreux and go down to the lake and turn left. Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is about 500m along this road.

                          If you drive from Lausanne you should take the A9 motorway right from the star. When going from Zurich you should take the A1 motorway towards Bern-Basel-Dietikon to the Geneva - Lausanne - Neuchâtel sign. Then take A12 motorway, interchange direction Vevey and then take motorway A9. After exiting Montreux go down the lake, turn left and within 500m you will see Fairmont Le Montreux Palace.

                          Getting around.

                            The location of the Montreux Palace Hotel during the Montreux Jazz Festival is unbeatable. The service was outstanding during our stay.

                            Expensive for what it is.

                            I was very unhappy with our room at the Fairmont Montreux Palace. There were several problems. First, the light in the closet would not turn off at night. I had to stuff a towel between the closet door and the button for the light switch to turn it off. Second, there was a bottle of Johnny Walker Black in the bar that had condensation inside it and a stain on the front. Third, there was no bedside lamp on the left hand side of the bed. These were problems that I would find annoying in a three star hotel. However, to encounter such problems in a five star hotel is just inexcusable. I am going to be staying at the Fairmont St Andrews in September and I sincerely hope that stay will be better.

                            Very luxurious and well-situated on the shore of "Lac Léman"

                            Room was ridiculously cold on arrival as the air-conditionning had been set at 15deg C

                            The views from the front rooms is great.

                            The parking was quite expensive and should have been included into the room rate.

                            There is no big long mirrow in the room.

                            The staff are not helpful at all. They are cold do not know how to smile. I believe that they might have an altitude problem or they think that they are better than the guests. We have to ask them always by saying please in order to get talking to you. I will not definitely go back again.

                            a very fine, luxury and comfortable hotel, price level according to its standing

                            the beds needs to be replaced, you start the morning with back pain which is absolutely unacceptable

                            The hotel itself is beautifully located and furnished and our room was very well equipped with a superb lake view. The hotel kindly upgraded us to a deluxe lake view. The staff throughout were all very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool and spa are actually across the main road from the hotel but are easily accessed from the hotel via an underpass.

                            The lunchtime menu at the outside pool/spa was limited in choice and was quite expensive (around 36 Swiss Francs) for some main courses. At lunchtime we prefer smaller and cheaper meals/snacks/salads E.G. sandwiches, burgers etc. Breakfast is also expensive at 40 Swiss Francs. Drinks in the hotel were also quite expensive although this appeared to be the case wherever we went in Montreux.
