When we found out that the trains to France were on strike, we went back to the hotel, they gave us and our son water right away, and helped us arrange a rental car to our destination in France when they couldn't find a plane for us. They were so polite and helpful that we canceled the other hotel that... More

Beautiful view of Lake Geneva. Lovely hotel lobby and nice bar. Delicious breakfast. The staff was very helpful with converting American dollars, giving great restaurant recommendations, and they coordinated our luggage to be delivered to our next stop so we didn't have to carry it with us on the train.

During this trip I have stayed in another leading hotel & two other relais & chateaux hotels and the beau-rivage was by far the best . The location is amazing & the staff is exellent wether it be the concierge,housekeeping or room service .The hotel of course is a bit on the expensive side but worth every penny

The Beau Rivage is a lovely hotel with a great view over the lake. I went with my husband and stayed for the one night, although we wish it could have been for longer. The standards are exceptionally high in all areas! The restaurant is one of the best around. Highly recommended.

My partner had booked a room for one night as a surprise stopover en route to the Bernina Express. The room was perfect 5* quality with sumptous beds, clarins toiletries and a beautiful view over the bay. Breakfast was an extortionate price though in a gorgeous terrace overlooking the bay. We opted for a walk out of the hotel finding... More

We cannot say enough about this amazing hotel! It opened in 1865 and is fourth generation family owned. The owner stops in every day! Service was magnificent, rooms were luxurious (we had an adjoining family room), location was close to everything, yet quiet and relaxing. The hotel is upscale without being stuffy. Pierre went above and beyond to make us... More

I stayed there for three days. The hotel is just in front of Lac Léman in a very special place because it's near the centre also. There's a really beautiful view from the front rooms of the hotel and the service is perfect. The hotel has a classic decoration. Enjoy Le Chat Botée restaurant and order "Milles saveurs" menu that... More

After a very long trip coming from Phnom Penh my stay in Beau Rivage was relaxing and very special. Stayed on the 4th floor with an amazing view to the lake and Jet d’Eau - a large fountain in Geneva. My room had a lot of light, clean with beautiful decoration. Breakfast served in the room was delicious. The hotel... More

Love the hotel. Just don't stay on the 6th floor. Constant, loud humming noise (AC, elevator?). Wish it had been constant, actually. Stops for a while and restarts wih howling noise. Hotel was very fair and gave me another (wonderfully quiet) room after my first sleepless night,

Is it "right" to say you LOVE a hotel? Well I do! The Hotel Beau-Rivage is the quintessential travel experience... the perfect blend of old world elegance with every modern convenience. It truly is a Palace and for the days I am there every year makes me feel like one of its Kings. The credit for all my praise goes... More
