With a lake view room, this hotel (the only private one in Geneva) was a delightful place to stay. The hotel's staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel meant that everything was a short walk away.

The Hotel Beau Rivage is very well located in Geneva, a 5 minute walk from the train station. The hotel overlooks Lake Geneva and is very central to shops, old town etc

The hotel has a very nice reception area, although there is a fountain in the middle which you have to kind of squeeze round every time you go out!

Our room was on the 5th floor. The room was a little cramped, you had to squeeze past the TV on 1 side of the bed, being careful not to bang your leg. Also the large desk in the room meant that the wardrobe door couldn't open fully, it was a little annoying as this wardrobe door had the only full length mirror in the room. The bed was very comfortable. There was a separate bathroom and toilet, a shower over the bath, but no separate shower cubicle. The maid service changed the towels twice a day and turned down the bed - I would have liked a chocolate - being that it's Switzerland, but there weren't any.

One evening we were surprised at the amount of noise of other rowdy guests, shouting and banging on doors, I guess even fancy hotels have idiots staying there!

I would recommend having the breakfast at the hotel, if you can get it included in the rate as we did. There are no cafes nearby where you could get an alternative cheaper breakfast, so you might as well stay in the hotel, rather than trek half way round Geneva. It was a buffet breakfast with lots to choose from - pastries, cereal, cooked food, fruit, yoghurts etc.

We didn't go to the restaurant, but did have a couple of drinks in the piano bar which cost the equivalent of £16 - you wouldn't want to get drunk there (well not on my salary!).

The staff were very polite and helpful. There was also a fitness centre, business centre & free wi-fi in the room.

The hotel is very nice, but for the price I have stayed at more luxurious ones with bigger rooms, bathrooms, receptions, but I think Geneva is a particularly expensive town.

I would recommend this hotel to someone visiting Geneva, we paid £560 for 2 nights including breakfast which I think is quite expensive, and probably would have expected a little more luxury for the price.

I stayed in Beau Rivage twice, and will come back. I had a very bad cold during the stay and the hotel staff were really helpful by finding me a doctor. I loved the variety of food in the room service, enjoyed the choice of European or Thai food a lot.

The hotel is beatifully and conveniently located in a baricentric location in front of the lake. The style is somehow oldish and one may like it or not, but everything is kept perfectly and fresh flowers are everywhere. The large room was done twice daily , a very comfortable down covered the bed and the bathroom was spacious and immaculate. The service was prompt , kind and attentive. The restaurant offered an almost too sophisticated choice of extraordinary foods and the wine list offered anything one could imagine. The bill was not cheap, but surely worth every single penny.

This Hotel is owned still by the Mayer family since 1865 and this is one of the highlights of our entire Hotel experiences. The location is great, overlooking the Lake & the Jet d'Eau & very close to the shopping (all the watches). The Hotel is totally refurbished & still retains the original features of the property. The restaurant is top notch in terms of quality, service, crockery & decor. We had the 9 course tasting menu, probably the best restaurant food I have ever had the delight to taste! The rooms are sumptous, yet with up to date TVs & Internet access. The bathroom & separate loo are beautiful, Lanvin products no less & a shower with 7 jets just to wake you up in the morning!
I could not recommend this Hotel highly enough & as you would expect it is priced accordingly. The Bar is very posh with customers whom you know have been coming here for years. Look out for one of the most famous members of the Concierge organisation-The Clef d'Or, an amazing man. Take the price of your next Patik Phillipe or Cartier to subsidise your stay! Go & enjoy!
