Hôtel du Grand Lac Excelsior

Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

OMG, what a pool! First, the Excelsior is one of those grand hotels au bord du lac that transports you to another era. It's a bit tired, but still a grand dame. I asked about the pool when I checked in to confirm I could use it in the morning, and was told they would be happy to open it up for me. So at 6 AM they lead me down an elevator, then through a long winding hallway, then down another elevator, then down another long winding hall, and then they open the door and WOW. The pool sits at lake level behind a wall of glass (which I think opens up for summer). When you're in the pool you think you're in the lake, with a magnificent view of the mountains. The pool is actually part of the Spa associated to the hotel and that's what all the winding hallways were. Anyway, they opened up the door and let me in and I had the whole place to myself (this was March so not exactly high season). No lane ropes but the pool is lined, just feels elegant, and is a great place for a workout.
