One of the best hotels in the world. we have been frequenting the Beau Rivage for many years and it is truly magnificient and enjoyable. It is pure pleasure to just lounge outside , read a book, bask in the sun, or even play chess on the garden-chess-board where you can also ride the metal donkey-statues... The rooms are impeccable, the Spa excellent , and the restaurants superb.... a great Lake lemans views all around.... superb.

Room Tip: Stay at the new not the old wing

Fantastic experience on a 3 day trip to Lausanne. The property and views are simply splendid all around the property. There have already been many comments made about the TV built into the bathroom mirror but it is worth mentioning again. I was pretty dazzled by that.

I did not have a corner room, but still had a beautiful balcony that overlooked a courtyard that was quite nice. The elevator that comes up onto the back courtyard is pretty cool.

The location is also spectacular as you can walk anywhere around it. Sadly I discovered the Olympic Museum too late. Definitely plan a trip there if you stay here. They are open until 6.

The only disappointment was no coffeemaker in the room. I learned on the last day that you can request a coffee maker. Shoulda thought of that earlier. :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the lake, and make sure you request a coffee maker for your room.

Fantastic stay as usual, unfortunately got a corner room with no balcony and only the side view of the lake...but the TV built-in the bathroom mirror floored me! The bathroom was very bright and extremely spacious with some cool mosaic work....

I had to skip world famous Cinq Mondes Spa as they had only 20 minute slot which didn't fit into what i wanted to do, but hope to book much in advance next time round.

The staff here are really faultless and the service is quite unmatchable in any part of the world. I had forgotten some of my stuff at the hotel and as I was in a nearby town I called them up and they said I could come and pick it up...they had it all packed for me.

I really can't wait to go he hotel again! A most beautiful and relaxing stay...

I had a three night stay here in June 2014 (room 205). The Beau-Rivage is a lovely, grand old European hotel on the banks of Lake Geneva. The hotel has a pretty terrace area with a view out over the lake. The room I had was a basic one, but generous in size, with extensive wardrobe and drawer space. The bed was comfortable, with a good duvet, and the walk-in shower was powerful and, unlike some, that did not require an engineering degree to adjust. Lights are easily operated from a bedside control panel, and the TV was modern. The only thing I could suggest as an improvement would be more electrical sockets, especially at a convenient height. The breakfast is of an unusually high standard, with excellent ham and pastries, and eggs cooked to order.

The reason that the hotel works so well is not the excellent standard of facilities but the high quality staff, who were impressively helpful and efficient in the interactions that I had. For example, the Swiss electrical sockets in the room are different from the norm in th EU, and a an adaptor is helpfully provided. However I wanted a second one, and within moments a gentleman appeared with not just one but a handful of adaptors. A simple thing, but it illustrated that the staff aim to exceed customer expectations. I have had three stays here now, and will happily return.

Our annual trip to this superb hotel. Once again we were not disappointed. I defy anyone to say a bad word about this exquisite hotel.

Service outstanding - pure luxury. Unbeatable views over Lac Leman

We will be back

We just returned from five wonderful days in Lausanne. We stayed at the Beau-Rivage Palace, which vastly exceeded our expectations. I requested a renovated room with a lake view, as recommended on this site, and was upgraded to a junior suite at the same rate. It was beautiful! The view, the room, the hotel, the grounds, and the location- all spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed the lavish breakfast buffet every morning. The service was impecable- especially that of a relatively new concierge who went out of his way to be sure that we had perfect information. This a lovely hotel and experience.

Room Tip: Request a renovated room with a lake view.
