Nestled by a picturesque lake and close to the Olympic museum, the Beau-Rivage Palace is lauded for its charming and sophisticated atmosphere. The hotel's rooms, known for their stunning lake views and spaciousness, complement the wealth of amenities, including a celebrated spa and multiple pools. While the service is generally acclaimed for its professionalism and personalized attention, a handful of guests have noted occasional lapses in speed. Cleanliness is a standout feature, with the property's pristine condition frequently praised, although opinions on value vary, with some guests mentioning high prices.

Everything was perfect - a charming, spacious and clean suite, beautiful interiors (in our suite as well as in the common areas of the hotel) and spa area, breakfast and the food at the brasserie... we could not wish for more :-)

Hotel's Favorite
This may be the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at & we travel quite a bit! We did have a room in the newly renovated part of the hotel, so I don’t know what other rooms look like. But all of our lighting, air, room darkening shades were wall activated and included bedside chargers. The bathroom included a large separate tub which we used, as well as a shower area. The spa is magnificent! We used all the amenities & the service impeccable. The terrace restaurants and grounds are amazing to walk, get a drink or for meals. We also were given 2 passes for an electric boat we took for 2 hours around Lake Geneva- my favorite thing we did! Thank you to Maxcense our concierge for the tips we were given for our wine tour in Lavaux plus more! It may seem pricey but it is well worth it!

A wonderful treat, so quiet and peaceful. Exquisite food in the most comfortable surroundings. Staff and service is excellant. Very easy to walk to the Olympic museum, the Metro (complimentary day ticket from Beau-Rivage) and of course the beautiful lake

Just spent a night in the Beau Rivage and had a lovely stay. Very comfortable with excellent facilities. Location is superb, right next door to the Olympic museum. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Truely nothing is overlooked but Lake Geneva.

A great hotel that unfortunately has become very impersonal and “functional”. The lovely bar at the ground floor near the Cafe Beau-Rivage is closed … and the Lobby Lounge has recently been renovated, unfortunately not for better … at the contrary, it is by far to bright and not cozy … The rooms are ok - but not exceptional. Service is very good and friendly … Would I recommend the Beau Rivage Palace for a stay in Lausanne? Not sure…

Superior staff, location and facilities. Very friendly towards children , that is how it should be in every hotel. Superbe breakfast buffet with great view on the lake. If you are looking for a special experience, go there and find out. But do not forget to check the rates, it has its price, for us it was well worth it.

the renovation of the hotel was amazing, it's like using a time machine to go back to 1900. everything shines. the cleanliness is 10 out of 10. the bed is perfect, hard. the internet was deplorable. the TVs in the room were problematic, we couldn't connect the devices to any of them. Asked to solve the problem, the reception people forgot about us and left us to wait in the room. If you book the balloon ride and the weather is not right, you will be asked when you are coming back to Lausanne? Ha? It's been a week and they don't respond to my refund request. Given the situation, the concierge argued that the balloon company was busy. They were not busy when they charged my credit card.

You will not find hospitality done better than here. Hands up to every single member of the staff that made our stay so special. Beautiful place, with lots of charm yet every modern comfort. We also felt our dog was very welcome which made it extra special for us

The beau rivage is an outstanding hotel in every aspect from personal service to the quality of the guest rooms, restaurants, spa, pool and fitness room. The concierge was tremendously helpful. We were in town for our sons commencement from IMD business school.

Our stay was lovely and the team did a wonderful job of ensuring the kids were well taken care of with plenty of special touches. BRP Cafe service was inconsistent and the Santa at the market was not of a 5 star hotel quality, but everything else was total perfection. Thanks for making our stay magical.
