The best hotel I have ever experienced in Europe. The view on the lac Geneva, the rooms with the terrace, the SPA, the swiming pool, the services,.... everything is top class. An experience to have once in your life.
"Old part of the hotel is horrendous! Make sure you have a room in the new part!"
It was a nice hotel but only the new part of it is actually worth staying in. The contrast between new and old is like comparing a five-star hotel with a hostel. The new part of the hotel is superb and cannot be faulted but they should shut down the old part as it simply isn't worthy of being open to the general public who are paying top money for an experience there. I booked this hotel as a romantic weekend as my partner and I were celebrating our anniversary. When I arrived I was great with a warm enough welcome but that is where the niceness stops. When I checked in I was escorted to my room by one of the receptionists and it felt very rushed and like they wanted to get rid of me. When I walked into the room I was extremely surprised at how dated and worn out the hotel room was. I stayed in the room for five minutes and decided that a room with gray grouting around the bath wasn't suitable for an anniversary. I went back down to reception and spoke to the receptionist again. They changed me to another room which was much bigger however, it was still not up to standard as the carpet had very visible stains, the room smelled musty, and the room was very cold because the windows didn't keep the cold autumnal air out. Then I decided that this simply wasn't acceptable and went back to reception. I was forced to upgrade as the hotel was supposedly full for the weekend. This cost me a sizeable amount of money but I was determined that the lack of thought by the reception staff would dampen our anniversary. When moved to the new room it was significantly better. For a comparison, it was as if I had walked into another hotel. The old part of the hotel is so worn out it shouldn't be used as it is simply not up to standard for a five-star hotel! I simply cannot stress enough how poor the old part of the hotel is. I wouldn't pay 100 CHF per night for that room that I first checked into. It was absolutely disgraceful! Finally, on checkout, I was getting into my car and the receptionist comes running out asking for the room keys which are electronic (plastic cards). I had left them in the hotel room as most people do. I found this a bit shocking and rude that she would presume that I didn't leave the keys at the property. A sad end to an anniversary weekend.
"Amazing - beautiful - and most recommended hotel"
This hotel is one of the most wonderful hotels I've ever seen. The hotel is just PERFECT! The receptionist took us personally to our room and explained about all the systems room is equipped with. The view from our room and from hotel's terrace is breathtaking. The service is perfect. The staff is very professional and helpful. The parking is free of charge. We stayed only 1 night but the experience is unforgettable. This hotel is worth its price. We reccomend it without any doubt.
"View View and View"
This hotel is located on mont-Pelerin over looking Lake Geneva and the town of Vevey. The location is quiet and the hotel is surrounded with spectacular views of the lake and mountains. You will need a car to enjoy the area. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean but the amneties/towels were not what you expect at such a level of hospitality. We had the junior suite, which basically is a large bedroom with a terrace. We visited in August and a buffet breakfast was served at a beautiful terrace over looking unbelievable scenary. The quality and choice of food were " basic ". Certainly, nothing fancy or special, but adequate. The surrounding area does not offer much in terms of facilities or dinning choices, you will need to drive to town or Montreaux for more options. There is also a fanicular that takes you down to Vevey, It is conveniently located close to the Hotel. Bottom line, If you have a car and want to explore this part of Switzerland, La Miradore will be an excellent base from which to start your excursions.
My wife, baby daughter and I stayed in this wonderful hotel in early September for three nights. The view are as beautiful as any I have ever seen - the Alps are perfectly framed by the majesty of Lake Geneva and the changing weather offers a different portrait several times a day, from the balcony. We stayed in the Ravel Suite in the older part of the hotel - we absolutely loved it and its old world charm. The spa is incredible, with a beautiful pool and the most up-to-date gym equipment. The service which I note has attracted some criticism, was excellent in our view - nothing was too much trouble but neither is it over-the-top or stifling. We had room service due to having a baby girl with us and the two nights we ordered direct from the Patio restaurant, the food was on time, hot and excellent, Thank you all very much for a perfect stay.
