The Beau-Rivage Palace is a grand hotel with one noticeable difference – it works. Whereas other grand hotels have forgotten how to be ‘grand’ the Beau-Rivage has ensured that the elegance of yesteryear continues to be relevant for today’s modern traveler. Everything about this hotel is perfect, from the opulent common areas to the beautiful and luxuriously appointed rooms (I... More

Had a quick snack at their bar during a day of meetings at the hotels. The bar and service are absolutely excellent. I went for the burger on the bar menu, which was a great choice. While waiting I was served bread with butter. Why does it have to be French butter in Switzerland? Plain, non-salted butter. I would have... More

Outstanding Hotel coupled with brilliant staff. Having caught a train from Nice to Geneva then hiring a car to drive around Switzerland it was fair to say I wanted to get to this hotel as quick as possible to relax and unwind. My only regret? That I didn't stay here longer! It really is a Palace in all it's entirety... More

Lovely location, amazing rooms, great service, pampering spa, delicious breakfast. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was the cleanest I've ever seen. The view from the balconies is simply breathtaking. What else can you ask for?:)

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.
