In one or two recent reviews in Tripadvisor the Beau Rivage has received a small measure of criticism for being too old-fashioned, the décor a little dated here and there, and other “aesthetic shortcomings”, as one reviewer called it! Well, a bit old old-fashioned perhaps, but still first class. We had no problem with enjoying old-fashioned Swiss hospitality when we stayed at the Beau Rivage again after an absence of several years, having previously visited on a number of occasions over the years and always found it to be exceptionally and consistently good. Our booking for a four nights stay was handled promptly and efficiently, the reception we received was warm and welcoming, and we had an attractive, well-equipped room with lake view and a patio. They even sent their friendly porter, Manuel, to the boat station to pick us up on arrival.
As always, the Geerings strive for perfection in every respect and meticulous attention to detail. In view of the current strength of the Swiss franc, the hotel is inevitably a bit expensive, but at CHF360 (off-season rate) per double room per night, inclusive of breakfast and half board for two people, it was good value. The evening half board menu offers a five course dinner, including a choice of three starters and three mains, plus a salad buffet and a tempting variety of deserts. The half board menu was of such high quality and variety each evening that there was never any need to turn to the à la carte menu. The rich breakfast buffet was equally good. The service was attentive and friendly, without being unduly effusive.
Other reviewers have already attested to the wonderful setting of this hotel, right on the shores of Lake Lucerne, with a lovely garden, an outside terrace for dining al fresco (when weather permits), a heated outdoor swimming pool, a wellness centre, and other guest amenities. Bliss!
We will be back.
