Golf Hotel Rene Capt4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Room: We booked a city view room because all the lake view rooms were booked. Honestly there is nothing to view in city view. If you are going to pay 70-80 € /night for a lake view hotel, be sure that it is over 2nd floor. Otherwise the trees may block your amazing view. Wifi works excellent. Facilities: The name doesn't mean anything with golf sport. The furnitures, the comfort is excellent. There are also some sunbeds and comfortable lounge area in front of the hotel with exceptional view. The thing is, it is not allowed to bring your food&drink here. Politely they warned us that it is not allowed to eat&drink on the terrace and garden. Location: Location is close to city center. Just 2 bus stops. Actually better to stay here than the crowded and slum center area. There are also some platforms just in front of the hotel, that you can easily jump and swim on the lake. Value for money: For the rooms with city view, there is not much to say. Cheaper than other 4* hotels. If the breakfast is included in this expensive country, don't think twice, Parking: You can purchase 15 €/night a parking slot from the hotel. There are also free parking area just front of the hotel for max. 3 hours. Breakfast: Good breakfast. Actually i expected worse but comes out better. Service is terrible (Very slow and not enough waiters). Breakfast area is -1 Level, has also good view with non-clean tables. Staff: Excellent reception. Warm welcome, information about everything. Unfortunately i can't say the same for bar and breakfast service.
Lovely small hotel right on the lakeside. I took the tip from other guests and paid more for a lake view room, certainly worth it. The reception staff were very friendly and polite. The view is amazing and the hotel is located in the quieter part of town but within easy walking distance of the centre of Montreux
This is a lovely location for a hotel who's time has passed. The rooms are tired and the hotel needs a general up grade. The meals were very good. No AC in the rooms and the temperature was very hot so we suffered through an uncomfortable night. I think the staff do a good job but there are not enough of them. For example, in the dining room, the tables were covered with crumbs from supper the night before and the window sills were full of dead mosquitoes. There are few amenities; I asked if there was a pool and was told that the lake was just a few steps away so why would I ask such a question.
Beautiful hotel, amazing view , nice Continental break fast , walking distance from city center , restaurant, cruise terminal , shopping area , railway and bus service , famous chillon castle is near by , location is really great , Staff was really helpful , room was clean We enjoyed our stay .
From the time we walked into the lobby, I knew this was a hotel we would enjoy. We were a bit early for check-in, but the staff stored our luggage and gave us a bus pass to go to Chateau de Chillon, which is only a few minutes away. The Chateau is also within walking distance along the lake. The hotel is right on Lake Geneva, and there is a lovely pedestrian walk in both directions at the bottom of the property. To the right, a 30 minute stroll takes you to shops, restaurants, and a perfect spot to view the sunset. To the left another 45 minutes would take you to the Chateau. Our room was spacious and clean with a balcony that looked out on the lake and mountains. While some revelers were enjoying the early evening down below, they were quiet by 10:00 p.m. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is very easy to take the #1 bus to the escalators that go up to the rail station; the staff will help with directions so that you don't have to carry luggage uphill.
Very nice , wonderful hotel , very nice staff , gr8 breakfast with lots of varieties , wonderful view directly to the lac , very nice garden , it was a gr8 hotel over all i will come another time for sure
I was a bit worried reading some of the recent negative reviews, but ended up very happy with our hotel choice! The hotel is in a really good location very close to the lake, absolutely amazing views from the terrace and our room (lake view room). Agree with other reviews on the negatives - no air con, tiny thin towels, rooms are outdated, but the positives outweigh the negatives easily. Staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food on the terrace was really good too! We'd definitely come back to this hotel because of the views and the staff.
The Hospitality that was given by the team in Golf Hotel was extraordinary. We checked in quite late at night and the reception greeted us with warm hospitality. He then directed us to our room and to find out the next morning that we had the most incredible view by the lake. Breakfast was great but it could be improved better. Amazing Hotel Hospitality and Location.
The hotel is old with old interior, but very clean with friendly staff and very helpful The view from the room on the lake was breathtaking and close to most of the activities like the boat on the lake as well as the train station for taking trips to the mountain exact. which most of the other hotels is a street up Breakfast was not the best we had on our three week trip and feel they could do better What we paid I still think is good value for money
