Reviewed 12 June 2011

The hotel has a good location with a wonderful view on the lake. 2 minutes from the metro which gets you in city center in 5 minutes. The staff is very nice and helpful. There are great facilities with a spa, an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool, a beautiful terrace and several restaurants and bars. The rooms are comfortable with a big bathroom. The only little comment would be about the bed which could be a bit more comfortable.

I stayed here last year on a business trip and it was a shame I wasn't here for pleasure. The room was beautifully decorated and the views of the lake and the mountains were magnificant. There were a few restaurants at the hotel, but I only at one and thought it was incredible. If I ever go back to Switzerland, I would definately stay here again.

Just to share with you the bad experience we had first week-end of May 2011 at the Terrasse Bar. It is a amazine Palace in amazing place close to the lakeside...

Weather was beautiful and we just wanted to had a very nice ice-cream!

19 CHF for one Ice Cream which was the worst ice-cream I have ever eaten! (enclosed bill)
-Full of ice
-Very poor quality ice cream
-So simple: two small balls with some cream and that was all they could offer us!!! despite the marvellous name they mentioned in the Menu...

We called the staff and their answer us: we are sorry, we know it but... we will bring you the evaluation paper and you can give us your comments!

TO ABSOLUTELY AVOID IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A NICE ICE-CREAM ON THE TERRASSE!

Dear dolcevita_21,

We are very sorry to hear that you weren’t happy with the ice cream served to you on our terrace. We would like you to know that we took good note of the remark and we will do our best to improve the ice cream. We understand that portion size wasn’t value for money. Hence we adapted the number of scoops, cream and strawberries.
We hope that all the coming guests can therefore enjoy a marvellous ice cream on our terrace with view on the lake!
Thank you very much for your review!

Extremly high standard of service with a great attention to all those details that make the difference. Unfortunately was not able to make the most of the SPA which did look also top class.

I cannot disagree with the other reviewers regarding the quality of the Beau Rivage palace - but to me it lacked an atmoshphere. The rooms are very spread out, it*s a long walk to reception from anywhere. The bar area was very dull. I'm sure if you were a couple or a famous person wanting not to be disturbed this is right up your street but the more atmoshperic Chateau Douchy would be my choice everythime in Lausanne.

It is curious that as I travel around the business world in a whirlwind of meetings, “fat-boy” suppers and early rises ... I never get a chance to stop and smell the roses. Enjoying the Beau Rivage Palace hotel vicariously through my wife was a new and wonderful experience.

To make a list of “WOW” things we noted might be seen as crude and vulgar I know but I feel that the superbly expedited little things made this hotel exceptional and different;

The charm and elegance of all the staff was stunning
Breakfast “wheeled in” – a pleasure from a leisure era
Beautiful flowers everywhere and with everything
The team at the concierge desk knowing ones room number unprompted
The personability of the staff in the restaurants

If the above doesn’t resonate, then maybe you as a consumer might be wiser to seek a more mid-market option. For me, it would be hard to see how they might be able to improve the product.

Room Tip: Enjoy the hotel as a venue in its own right
