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!

Charming experience

The hotel is in the best location in Lausanne with direct access to the lake promenade. Comfortable and reasonably sized rooms. Tasty breakfast in a restaurant with a la carte service if necessary. Best price/quality ratio you may find in Lausanne.

A unique and beautiful hotel in Lausanne lakeside

I highly recommend this beautifully decorated hotel if you want to stay in Lausanne.

The staff is very welcoming and helpful, extremely professional and attentive. Read more[SPLIT]Read less The bedrooms are large and decorated with beautiful furnitures. You will enjoy amazing views of the surrounding mountains and Leman lake. The welcoming products are hight quality, from Cinq Mondes spa products to Kusmi tea, every details are perfect .

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.

Another Great Stay

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.
