Hotel Angleterre & Résidence

Lake Geneva

Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, Hotel Angleterre & Résidence is a haven of luxury and tranquility in the heart of Lausanne. Minutes from the charming old town, and with the mountains and the lake at your door, there are plenty of things to see and do.

The hotel itself is the perfect place to relax. Six pavilions, dating from the 18th, 19th, and 21st centuries, sit on the shores of the lake, nestled within landscaped gardens, perfectly blending historic elements with contemporary design. There are just 75 rooms housed in four buildings, each with its own distinct style, offering something for everyone. All rooms are tastefully decorated, creating comfortable and inviting environments, some with balconies and views over the garden and the lake.

Two restaurants serve authentic and delicious dishes. Enjoy traditional Italian at L'Accademia, or head to La Terrasse where comfy armchairs beneath large white parasols are the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of Prosecco or a dish of antipasti and homemade pasta.

There is also an outdoor pool, gym, and spa.

Hotel Angleterre & Résidence is a study in contrasts where modern design blends seamlessly with traditional décor. The hotel is spread over six historic pavilions. The buildings center around a central lobby, a stunning glass structure nestled within lush gardens, with views of colorful flora from every angle.

75 comfortable and elegant rooms are housed in four of the pavilions (the fifth is home to conference facilities, the sixth in the lobby). The historic façades of Angleterre and Lutetia reveal contemporary interiors within. Florissant is reminiscent of an English cottage, with cozy furnishings and traditional design. Last, but not least, Longchamp is a modern masterpiece, offering luxuriously large bedrooms, many with terraces overlooking the garden and the lake. Whether opting for a bedroom or junior suite, guests will appreciate the comfort, luxury, and technology available throughout.

Lausanne occupies an enviable position at the center of three mountains, in the middle of nature’s spectacular beauty, and Hotel Angleterre & Résidence is at the center of it all. Switzerland’s fourth-largest city offers a vibrant cultural life, coupled with cosmopolitan conveniences, and a plethora of outdoor activities. There’s something for every taste.

In town discover an excellent selection of restaurants, galleries, museums, shopping, and more. Take in an exhibition, tour a medieval village, or simply head out for a stroll. With both lake and mountains on its doorstep, there are also plenty of outdoor adventures to be had from the hotel.

In the summer, go for a swim or take to the lake for a journey on the electric boat. Come winter, the ski slopes are just an hour away. The Terraced Vineyards of Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are incredible to behold. Guests also have access to the tennis courts and award-winning spa at a partner hotel, Beau-Rivage Palace. There are endless options to make unforgettable memories.

The hotel welcomes families and young guests.
