I’ve been coming to the hotel for 45 years (!!!) and while many hotels have fallen in terms of service, the Beau Rivage stands out for still maintaining its old world service! From arrival to departure, every care is provided. The rooms of the lake are calming, the concierge, Alllan, can make everything possible with no challenge too big. This has been a home away from home for me when I come to Switzerland, and it remains so. The rooms are smalls but very well done, with lovely bathrooms. The only thing missing is they stopped putting a piece of Swiss chocolate on your pillow during turndown service. A wonderful location on the lake that is the most special party of Lausanne, and 3 minutes from the city center either by taxi or the tram which is a 2 minute walk away (and super clean).

This is the first time that I was disappointed at this property. Unbeknownst to us, the hotel is in construction. Half of the rooms, original lobby, gift shop are not available. Room prices are higher than we have ever paid. In our experience staff in a leading hotel of the world have always been proficient in English. I had problems communicating in French in the breakfast room, room service, the pool are and the spa. Our room was above the service entrance and starting very early in the morning we could hear trucks making deliveries. For a room price of SF 780.00 I do not expect these annoyances. The plus side to our experience was the beautiful gardens and the sparkling pool. The location could not be better for walks along the lake.

To return to the Beau Rivage after an absence of two years and experience the same perfect blend of efficient service, exquisite food offerings in elegant surroundings warms the heart. Indeed the food offerings had moved up a notch and were that much more powerful and exciting. What makes the Beau Rivage special though is a simple human trait. It is the provision of hospitality with the perfect blend of charm, sophistication and good manners and whether it is the increasing use of technology or health care protocols that essence of the place is never distilled or reduced or diverted as a result of current circumstances whatever they maybe. As I grow older I value the experience more than ever and I feel sure that when I return those qualities which are written into the DNA of the staff will be once again be on display and I will have the chance to bask in it once more.

Due to Corona we (from Switzerland) decided…not to go to Ibiza…not to fly to Sardinia this year…but to spend some days at the Beau Rivage in Lausanne. And it was beautiful!!!! Off topic at the beginning of this review: we felt very very save all the time, they really do as much as possible to avoid ANY SARS-COV2 infection. I am a doctor and by my profession maybe a bit more critical than the average visitor and felt save all the time. We experienced a very warm welcome at check-in. Beautiful room, quiet, a dream. I really must say, all the stuff we met was so friendly, there was no second we did not feel like in paradise. Breakfast was amazing, dinner at the Japanese restaurant, pool, garden, lounge, really nothing to complain. Thank you very much for the most beautiful days me and my wife experienced this year. And we know where to spend our next holidays. Guess where? .-)

When you go to a hotel of the quality and reputation of the Beau-Rivage Palace, you expect a good experience and good service. Therefore it takes something special for one’s expectations to be exceeded. But certainly they were. From the magnificence of the exterior of the building to the sumptuous decor inside, the visual aspect of the hotel is wonderful together with the mature picturesque gardens with the outlook to the lake. The actual room was very tastefully decorated and furnished which provided a very comfortable stay. The spa area too is a very relaxing and well equipped sanctuary from the bustle of life. On top of this the cuisine in both the Anne-Sophie Pic restaurant and the Japanese Miyako was outstanding and being able to watch the Teppanyaki chefs prepare the food was very interesting. However what topped it all in my opinion was the quality of the service and the staff - you expect efficiency and politeness but when this is coupled with personableness (staff in all areas of the establishment) it really makes a difference and the whole stay even more memorable. A fantastic way to spend an anniversary (and this does not even take into account the amazing surprise of roses, candles and delicious gateau!). Thank you to all at the Beau-Rivage Palace!
