I booked this hotel for my parents as I couldn't find anything in Geneva at the last minute. (The entire city was booked-out for the Geneva Auto Show). Had initially booked them in Lausanne, but changed it to Montreux only because of this hotel. It cost just as much as the one in Lausanne, had much better reviews, and a far superior location. And it was just an additional 10-min train ride from Lausanne.
About the hotel: (This, from what my parents told me after their stay for 4N and 5D)
Excellent staff. The owner and the manager were friendly and courteous, in person and on e-mail. Full marks.
Great location. Very close to Montreux station. Barely 200 meters, i.e. a 5 min walk. Makes for a great place to base your trip out of, since Montreux connects well with nearly all Swiss destinations. Right on the edge of Lake Geneva. Well-located if you like long walks along the lake. The 4th floor room overlooked the lake. (And they have an elevator, so the fourth floor was not a problem). Made for a lovely stay.
Room. Not too large, but certainly very comfortable and more than adequate for two people. I am told the bathrooms are a bit of a squeeze. Extremely compact, but clean and functional.
Overall: Very good experience. Montreux itself is a very good place to be in. Nice, scenic, with quite a few day-journeys you can do. In town, this hotel is definitely a good place to stay and one that won't pinch your pocket.
