My wife and two young daughters recently spent a long weekend at the Beau Rivage Palace.
It goes without saving that the location is beautiful. The hotel grounds are immaculate and the views of the lake are sublime. There was even a small playground at the hotel that our daughters enjoyed immensely.
What surprised me was how nicely done the rooms are. Often hotels of this vintage are beautiful, but while kept up, they inevitably feel a bit old (I think the Le Bristol in Paris is like that).
However here our rooms (we had a small suite and adjoining room) were beautifully done and felt clean, modern and spacious. We were on the fifth floor with gorgeous views of the lake.
The service was superb as one would expect. While one or two of the concierge staff were not the most friendly I've come across, they were inevitably efficient. The staff were very attentive to our young daughters, even to the point of bringing a little chest of toys to our room for them to play with on a rainy day.
The food was good (and with young daughters) the room service was prompt.
We will definitely be returning.
