I didn't intend to stay here but was so glad that I did. Huge lobby and a ludicrously small (and temperamental) lift. The rooms were huge and stunning whilst the staff were charming. I can't wait to return.

Nothing not to like. Super location overlooking the lake, historic palace hotel excellently refurbished to high standard. Bedrooms wonderful with even tv built into the bathroom mirror! Staff throughout can not do enough for you and their training shows. State of the art Spa and great swimming pool. Hard to think of anything wrong!

The property is simply amazing! The views are fabulous! We stayed as a large family in one of their suites facing the lake and what splendour we experienced! The rooms were large, beautifully decorated in true high Swiss quality. The breakfast experience was simply divine - light and airy room with fabulous staff. The food choice was really excellent.

The hotel is a gem. The staff are extremely competent and helpful. The rooms are lovely and large and the views gorgeous. The pool and spa are excellent. The breakfast is beyond all expectations. Everything about the hotel is really excellent. You will be treating yourself to a wonderful stay by going to the Beau-Rivage Palace.

I usually don't like palaces, their impersonal (if not poor) service and their clients who often forget that money is not a substitute for good manners. We spent two nights at the BRP this summer and, while I won't comment on the clientele, I must say that everything that was under the hotel's control was very good. Every staff member... More

The hotel was gorgeous, staff very helpful, food excellent! Central location across from Lake Geneva near train and Olympic Museum. Just check on room location. Ours was not on the lakeside and view was poor. Unfortunatly for us, hotel was booked solid.

Hotel with a great location, great amenities and rooms. Service was very lacking. On our check-in day we received our rooms at 6pm, well after when rooms are usually ready for check-in. We had to wait 2 hours after a long travel to get the room. The lady at the reception was rude and was not helpful. Service overall was... More

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.
