“Step on board and the real world evaporates behind you” – a sentiment often voiced by travellers on the Belmond British Pullman train. Together with its sister train the Belmond Northern Belle, its magnificent period carriages enable guests to experience all the magic of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express without leaving Britain.

We thought the Italian trains from Milan were superbly comfortable and were also very impressed by the station at Milan. We had a very warm and friendly welcome at the hotel. The room was lovely, beautiful marble bathroom, and a wide choice at breakfast. It was very central and after a long day’s sightseeing we twice used the spa facilities of steam room and pool to ease aching feet and backs. An excellent choice.
The hotel at Montreux was a delight – and only 20 yards across the road from the station! I’m glad we’d upgraded to a lake view room because we had a large balcony, the weather was sunny and warm and the views fabulous. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had the most wonderful meal.
All in all we had a lovely time and hope to use your services again.
