We stayed 3 nights at the Beau-Rivage Palace - BEAUTIFUL hotel and GREAT location in the quaint port-town of Ouchy. Very convenient to metro line and lake shuttle. Adjacent to the Olympic Museum (a must see!). Every morning, we walked along the lake to Pully and returned for a wonderful 1-hour escape from reality...there's no place like Lake Geneva! Drinks...

Very warm welcome. Check in was efficient and I was accompanied to my junior suite (upgrade received) which included an in room sauna (which I enjoyed very much). Although the furniture and decor was dated (and sometimes worn out), the room was very clean with all the necessary amenities. I regretted not to have a coffee machine in the room,... More

We had reservations for a Superior room with lake view, and decided to do the Anne-Sophie Pic dinner package.....As it turned out, the night we choose was a special event at the restaurant "Soirée Millésime" - after a few e-mails, we were able to ensure our reservations for this event.... One month later we arrive - after a drive in... More

My wife and I enjoyed four glorious days and this five star hotel. The attention to detail was superb. The quality of the facilities (rooms, bathrooms, spa, pool, grounds, etc.) was what you would expect from a five star hotel...exceptional. The staff would go out of their way to satisfy any needs that we had. Obviously having a hotel on... More

We spent two wonderful nights in June at the Beau-Rivage. From the moment our car was picked up to be garaged to the smooth and efficient check-in, including a personal escort to our room by a friendly reception staffer, we knew we were in a superb hotel. "Elegance" is the best word to describe the property. The hotel is georgeous... More

My wife and two young daughters recently spent a long weekend at the Beau Rivage Palace. It goes without saving that the location is beautiful. The hotel grounds are immaculate and the views of the lake are sublime. There was even a small playground at the hotel that our daughters enjoyed immensely. What surprised me was how nicely done the... More

My family and i have high standards and we really enjoyed our stay. Make sure to get rooms on the right side of the hotel as you face the lake as they have all been recently remodeled. Its expensive but the location is terrific.

In my opinion the best hotel in Lausanne. Although it is not my style, but my last stye I've got freshly refurbished room and I must say it was very luxurious. On top of that on the second day I found in my room greetings with chocolates - very tasty surprise :-).

This hotel states that it is 5 star, and it definitely is just that. The service is outstanding - simply put, out of this world. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, this august hotel boasts gorgeous vistas of the lake plus the surrounding mountains, and has a magnificent flower garden as well. The rooms are spacious, and has every... More

A perfect location, walking distance to almost everything. Love being so close to a promenade, the grounds are so beautiful. I read somewhere that Coco Chanel's dog is buried here I walked the grounds & found the small animal grave yard. The hotel is just stunning the tapestries, and grand staircases, the atrium on a rainy night was incredible &... More
