Breakfast buffet is a spread unlike any other. The Cafe Beau Rivage is excellent - we ate there 2 nights as we learned on our last trip to Lausanne,...

Unfortunately we didn't have the pleasure of staying in this fabulous hotel. But we were incredibly lucky to be able to use its facilities, we were able to enjoy a fab drink in one of the bubbles on the front lawn, service was first class and it was a great experience
