one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. we had a perfect junior suite with lake view. pool area was a bit crowded due to the great weather but service was perfect. spa is amazing, too. only minus was that the breakfastcrew seems to prefer outside guests over houseguests as they offer them the best (available) tables on the terrasse while houseguests were shown tables in the windy inside.

This Grand Hotel of great history, that I used to visit years ago , seems to be sleeping on the glorious of the past! Bad service and mismanagement unfortunately encountered on many parts of the hotel. Here only two of them lived a day ago: Several seats were available at the garden terrace facing the lobby. 3 friendly people sitting there invited me to their table and to take one of the armchairs next to them, which I did . Comes the waitress asking if I was with these 3 people, which of course I denied being alone. Here upon the waitress argued that then she could not serve me as the management requests only one bill per table , even if like here there obviously were seats for minimum 6 personnes and we were 3 + 1. At this moment the 3 friendly persons argued not accepting that position of the waitress and that , if necessary, they then would invite me, in order to allow that tricky manager to print only one bill! But by courtesy I refused this solution and the waitress disappeared.... She came back a few minutes later saying that she had a table for me on the upper terrace named Les Arcades. Normally I should not have accepted this “delocalisation”, but it was a sunny day and I was, still, of good humor. Once installed under “Les Arcades” nobody cared for me. When finally , after at least 15 minutes, I could order (a croque-monsieur and a drink), it took over 45 minutes to get that snack! And top of the top: that croque-monsieur must have been forgotten somewhere in the kitchen, and was served quasi cold ! Which means “uneatable”. I got a card of the manager in charge (Jordan Rat-Cacciapaglia), but he never showed up . The whole place is definitely no more what it once was and far away from a 5 star establishment .

In April 2019 we celebrated my son’s 1st birthday at this luxury hotel. We chose Beau Rivage because it’s the one place we frequently visited in the 1st year of my son’s life and we felt it symbolised a lot of the fun memories we’d had when we became a family of four. The frequent visits were to the spa where my other child took private swimming lessons each Saturday. So on the happy occassion of the birthday we booked a table for 6 (incl 2 children) for the afternoon tea menue. I had also specially ordered for a theme cake fir which I had exchanged several e-mails with the hotel staff. While the hotel itself is beautiful decor wise with an amazing view over lake Geneva, on this occassion I didn’t feel that the service matched the high-end ambience of the hotel. The staff was friendly but extremely stressed it seemed, causing a lot of delay to our order snd to top it off- the staff never served us or reminded us to avail of the desserts which were part of the menue. We literally left the place without having a third of the meal we had paid for.

A very lovely stay - stellar property in 10 acres of private gardens, can-do staff without exception (special thanks to Christine, a future GM), spectacular restaurants (La Terrasse and Cafe Beau-Rivage were exemplary) and a wonderful sense of place and wellbeing. The additional flourishes for Christmas and the festive season (horse riding, carousel, marshmallow roasting) were rather nice. All eyes on the new leisure offering planned for later this year - there is the potential to make this unbeatable.
