We just completed our 3 night stay in Lausanne at the BRP and I must say that everything is first class. The service in the hotel from the reception, bell boy, concierge, valet and waiters in the restaurants is outstanding. We had a lake front room with connected room to our children. The rooms are very tastefully decorated in a... More

Beautifully appointed rooms in a stunning property that combines the grandeur and elegance of days gone by with 21st century amenities and outstanding service. Our room was beautiful: tastefully furnished and so very comfortable. We enjoyed some time at the spa and, again, wanted for nothing. Every aspect of the hotel exceeded expectations. Without exception, every single member of staff... More

At the very moment, I am sitting at the hotel bar, drinking a well-made cappuccino and relaxing in an amazing atmosphere made more unique and special by a pianist playing for the guests. Some people are reading the newspaper, others are working on their laptop, but all of them look satisfied by the excellent service. At my arrival, yesterday, a... More

This is truly a nice classical Palace with all that you would expect in a country reputed for its service worldwide. The food was very good and the view from this hotel is amazing. The garden is very pleasant and we appreciated the sunday brunch. The room is luxurious and offered a magnificent view on the Lake. The italian restaurant... More

We had a great moment in this hotel. Friendly reception. The staff is fantastic and very helpful. We got an upgrade with a nice view on the lake and the mountains. The breakfast is very good also. It is a relative small buffet, but there is a large choice of meals that you can order. The staff brings you a... More

Everything about this hotel is expensive - everything. Think US $50 for a hamburger and fries! However we found that nothing in Switzerland is cheap so you might a well enjoy that hamburger with a beautiful view of the lake and the alps! We loved our room and while small, it was luxurious and had air conditioning which is not... More

I love this hotel. Everything is outstanding - restaurants (all three), rooms (sometimes small, but all very good), service, building, location. The only bad thing one can say is that it is expensive. It is a pitty that the good things in life are so expensive.

Speechless. Welcoming, warm setting, world-class service. The decor is amazing, especially when we went during christmas, amazing location near the lake. Expensive room, but it's what you would expect when you stay in this kind of accommodation. The spa is also amazing. And not to mention the top notch breakfast! We will certainly be coming back here - it's made... More

Can't not say enough about our stay at Beau-Rivage Palace. From the very first moment the staff greeting us as if we were their only priority. The Palace itself is a must visit even if you don't get the privilege of staying. Our room was a junior suite over looking Lake Geneva with a breathtaking vista towards the snow topped... More

Hands-down, this is a fantastic hotel: the décor is amazing, fantastic interior design, amazing location, and service is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel (and the price-tag on the room). The hotel is composed of two main adjoining palaces linked together: having stayed in a room on the second floor of the "farther" palace, I should warn... More
