Hotel Beau Rivage
Ranked #6 of 15 Hotels in Baveno
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2011

We took advantage of the hotel's online offer of 3 nights b+b, welcome drink, dinner on one night, a boat trip to the islands, use of the pool in the garden, free internet and free parking. Fantastic value. We had a large corner room at the side of the hotel building with a balcony and view of Lake Maggiore, Beautiful. Breakfast was excellent and the dinner turned out to be so good that we chose to pay for dinner on our last night. The staff were all lovely and we hope to be able to return to this lakeside hotel on our next visit to Baveno. The only reason we didn't use the offer of the swimming pool was that we simply ran out of time.

wonderful area, terrific ferry service but disappointed with hotel. breakfast so poor. choice of 2 cereals, muesli had nothing but grain in it. fatty, greasy meat and cheese. bread already cut so dry and hard unless you were first in dining room, tinned fruit. Dinner was adequate but very little choice. we stayed with the pasta. rooms were enough as we only slept in them, nowhere to sit. would return to this area but not to this hotel.

Basic good quality facilities, excellent food, clean Rooms, convenient location close to Bus and Ferry stops. The real selling point for this Hotel is the excellence of its staff, their professionalism, unfailing courtesy, and cheerful friendliness made it an absolute pleasure to stay there

First impression - lovely hotel. Bedroom was disappointing as it was very small and basic but the view over the lake made up for this. However, soon discovered there was no air conditioning which meant we had to leave the french doors open at night. The road was very busy during the night, so if you would rather a good night's sleep over a view, ask for a bedrrom at the rear of the hotel.

Food was o.k., although a few of the waiting staff could have done with some customer care training.

Overall a good hotel to stay in for a short break. Good location for exploring the lake with regular ferries to the islands and other towns. Baveno is a fairly quiet destination with not much night life.

I read with horror the June review as I was booked in to the Beau Rivage. However I found the hotel to be wonderful, full of character with staff who nothing was too much trouble for. The rooms were spotlessly clean with a beautiful view of the lake & a minutes walk to the ferry.
Although I agree there was no hot breakfast options there was plenty of choice with never ending coffee or tea.
I do take issue with the previous review though re the dinner menus as it certainly wasnt pork & icecream every night.
There was always a choice of each course it was plentiful & delicious & the vegetarian & vegan in our party were provided with special meals of their choice.

I suppose you can't have it all ways... The hotel is in a great location at Baveno, central to all activities, but it is noisy. They cater for coach parties and we were woken up every morning with the sound of coaches starting up and people vacating their rooms. Sometimes as early as 5.30am. The room we had was clean and had a massive balcony, the bathroom left a lot to be desired and the wardrobe was housed under the eaves. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast poor.
