The bed was huge and very comfortable. They gave us a room with balcony, which was little, but it was great to have and for which we didn't ask for. Also it was my girlfriend's birthday and they left a little tasty cake for her. Really nice from them. The employees were really nice. Specially Nelson Rato at the reception.
Breakfast was a bit chaotic because the place was not that big so you had People and waiters walking around all the time. It felt a bit stressful. Also it was very cold and the hot food would get cold immediately. Parking it's extremely expensive. Being a 5 star hotel doesn't justify the price. 48 CHF per day it's extremely much.
Nice room spacious clean comfy bed great view of the lake
Staff a bit cold and not warm
Be careful, your belongings can be unlawfully taken by the hotel staff. This what happens with an exclusive truffles cheese I bought in Crans-Montana. Hotel explained to me that it was a misunderstanding but actually I was robbed since previous guest gave a permission to clean up the fridge even after I checked in the cleaned/prepared for the another guest stay room. That being said, Fairmont Montreux does neither deserve any good point nor a 5-star label due to this silly mismanagement problems. Sadly but this situation absolutely messed up the mood and I lost a lot of time trying to sort it out.
The location, clean, facilities and staff
The hotel in general is good but not for families with kids. I didn’t like the way the manager on duty acted when I tried to change the booking from 6 nights to two nights he was totally unhelpful and also the way he approached our kids , it’s normal for kids to play but the hotel has strict policies that I guess they should write it in their web site that families with “young” children aren’t welcomed.
Breakfast was amazing! Enjoyed the SPA as well.
Room was too small. Pillows weren't great.
