Château d’Ouchy

A tranquil respite overlooking the lake close to the centre of Lausanne

Nestled on the banks of Lake Geneva with magnificent views across the water, Château d’Ouchy is a striking neo-gothic castle reconstructed in the late 1800s into a hotel. A recent renovation has sensitively brought this gem back to life which now provides 50 delightfully unique rooms and suites, a superb restaurant, an inviting wellness area with a hamman and sauna and its own boat for lake excursions.

Château d’Ouchy’s fabulous setting ensures peace and tranquillity with stylish rooms and suites that retain many period features. The décor and furnishings are crisp and contemporary with smart wood floors that highlight the original marble and stone.

Enjoy lunch on the restaurant terrace overlooking Lake Geneva and the Vaudois Alps in the distance. Spend the afternoon on a trip around the lake on Château d’Ouchy’s private boat. Alternatively, explore Lausanne’s Old Town with its cathedral and narrow, cobbled streets.


Enjoy your stay!

Great location - beautiful lake view and close to tram

We enjoyed our stay, booking a lake view room - waking up to the beautiful view was so relaxing and great for our vacation. Though the weather was not great when we were visiting, our view from our room was still amazing. We did have a little issue with our shower where the water would shift from cold Read more[SPLIT]Read lessto hot to cold in the beginning. However, it did settle to a consistent temperature after a few minutes. Overall, we loved our stay. The hotel is located right next to the tram exit, making going to and fro other cities very easy. Also walking distance to Olympic Museum that we enjoyed very much.

Hotel with a view

Great location on Lake Geneva. We had a wonderful room overlooking the lake and the mountains and were lucky with fantastic weather. When the day broke you could not stop admiring the changing colors. It is easy to take a walk along the lake and in no time you are in the old center of Lausanne. We also Read more[SPLIT]Read lessenjoyed our dinner very much. Try the small apple tart for dessert, you won't regret it.

Beautiful Hotel in a Spectacular Location

I can't imagine a hotel in a better location in Lausanne. On the lake with a wonderful view of the french alps. the walking path is right behind the hotel. Enjoy a drink on their patio or breakfast on the veranda with the same view. Just a block from the Olympic museum, restaurants and shops. The Read more[SPLIT]Read lessstaff is very helpful and accommodating and the hotel is an old palace so has lots of in room character.

Another Great Stay

The location is perfect. We always take the Riviera Suite which provides the most spectacular views across Lac Leman towards French Alps. Bathroom products upgraded recently to Molton Brown, excellent. Restaurant being renovated but they seem to have coped very well with moving breakfast to the lobby, Read more[SPLIT]Read lesssaw no difference to all the other times we have visited. Location perfect for train arrival, 2 minutes from Ouchy station and super fast into GVA from Lausanne. Excellent place to just chill and walk, 13 km of pure relaxation from Montreux ( train) to Chateau Chillon. Beautiful lake walks. Always perfect, no matter how short our stay has been.

Food And Drinks

Provence cuisine or that of neighboring Italy, but plays on taste combinations between anchovies, garlic, onion, chilli and olive oil. Sometimes considered as rustic, sometimes sophisticated, one thing is sure – this original cuisine genuinely stands out from its Mediterranean counterparts. An ideal menu to choose at the Château d’Ouchy restaurant is the seasonal menu, which is a balanced meal including vegetables from small independent suppliers, wild fish, farmhouse meats, traditional cheeses and an iced or fruit-based dessert. Our restaurant is open from 7am to 10:30am for breakfast, from 12pm to 2pm and from 7pm to 10pm.
