This is a traditional hotel, oozing class and history, we loved it! Excellent breakfast, well trained and friendly staff will cater to your needs. The choice of breakfast amongst the best we have experienced. The 2 star michelin restaurant was a little pricey for us for the evening meal, though you could get a set lunch for around 180 CHF...

Absolutely beautiful hotel in a gorgeous location. Rooms were elegant and comfortable with large modern bathrooms and every modern convenience. Our rooms had small balconies overlooking the lake and were truly perfect. Breakfast was beautiful and the service was top notch. Expensive 5* hotels that delivers on every front. Wish we could have stayed longer.

I stayed 3 nights with my family in a lake view room. The view was just amazing on the lake with the local weather changing so quickly from bright sunshine to heavy storms with lightning. I hardly watched TV instead I enjoyed the changing scenes on the lake. The garden of the hotel is quite vast and well designed with... More

We just arrived home from 3 nights at Beau-Rivage, everything about this hotel is just lovely. The room was beautifully appointed, comfortable, and the bathroom was exceptional and included a heated floor as well as a TV within the bathroom mirror. I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a clean room, there were many windows and mirrors... More

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
