    Our opinion

    Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic is an imposing hotel offering class, sophistication, gourmet cuisine, and elegant accommodation.

    Hotel description

    In the chic, sophisticated lakeside town of Montreux, the four star Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic overlooks the waters, yachts, and promenade of Lake Geneva. Its grand façade resembles a regal French palace, adorned with yellow canopies above its windows that are characteristic of Lake Geneva. Above the front door, which is framed by thin Corinthian pillars, hangs a Swiss flag. As you enter the lobby of the Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic, you are met with the rich purple hues of the armchairs, contrasted with the high shine of the marble floors and the golden satin of the cushions. White pillars support a white vaulted ceiling, from which a gold chandelier hangs. Elegant, light corridors and winding stairways lead you to the guestrooms, Restaurant 45, and Bar 45. The main feature of the bar is the vast, relaxed terrace, decorated with tables topped with yellow parasols. Here, guests can enjoy exquisite local wines, light Swiss delicacies, and international snacks, as well as stunning panoramic views across Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps. Higher up in the hotel building, with equally uninterrupted views of the water and the mountains, is the Restaurant 45. This modern venue is glass-fronted, with sleek black and light brown tables and a wraparound balcony that seems to be totally suspended in peaceful seclusion above Montreux. Lunch and dinner here is accompanied by an extensive wine selection designed to suit every taste and every dish, and the excellent service of a 13 Gault Millau point restaurant. An open-plan dining room creates a lively atmosphere, with food on display, particularly at breakfast time, and is especially striking and enjoyable when contrasted with the grandeur of the rest of the hotel. Guestrooms all harness the spectacular nature of their views, be it across the water, or across Montreux. Refined minimalist style is interjected with classical touches, such as thick, textured curtains, grand headboards, bedside tables dressed with flowers, and armchairs beside coffee tables. Some rooms are afforded lake view balconies, which provide an extra luxurious touch. The Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic is a luxury four star option in Montreux, for those looking particularly for a waterfront position and a mixture of classical Swiss and French design and modern, chic amenities.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Though famous for the Montreux Jazz Festival, the city has much more to offer. A railway takes visitors across Alpine meadows to Rochers-de-Naye at over 2000m above sea level, from which you can sometimes see the Jet d’Eau fountain in Geneva across the lake. The Chateau de Chillon is perched on a rocky outcrop, unmissable for its fairytale beauty, and recognised to be Switzerland’s most popular historical landmark. For a taste of the Swiss chocolate tradition, take the Belle Epoque style Swiss Chocolate Train to the Maison Cailler to explore the history of Swiss chocolate production and craft some of your own. The Chocolate Train also takes you to medieval castle-topped Gruyeres, where three museums, characterful cobbled streets with townhouses that have shuttered windows, and pavement cafes await. Be sure to also visit the Lavaux Terraced Vineyards that stretch across 800 hectares of lakeside land, perhaps by Vineyard Train (S31), which takes you from Vevey to Puixdoux-Chexbres. For an exclusively relaxing day out, take one of the lake cruises across Lake Geneva, admiring the Alpine backdrop and stopping off in a number of small port villages. Those with children might wish to travel slightly further out to the waterparks and the Swiss Vapeur Park.
