Very warm welcome. Check in was efficient and I was accompanied to my junior suite (upgrade received) which included an in room sauna (which I enjoyed very much). Although the furniture and decor was dated (and sometimes worn out), the room was very clean with all the necessary amenities. I regretted not to have a coffee machine in the room, but that did not alter my impression. All personnel is very friendly and helpful. Will certainly be back to explore the spa and other services.

We had reservations for a Superior room with lake view, and decided to do the Anne-Sophie Pic dinner package.....As it turned out, the night we choose was a special event at the restaurant "Soirée Millésime" - after a few e-mails, we were able to ensure our reservations for this event....
One month later we arrive - after a drive in the pouring rain from Interlaken, in our Rolling Stones t-shirts and grubby jeans....to experience perhaps the most memorable 24 hours of our lives! The valets were fun and gracious, then as we check-in, we received an upgrade....to the Lavaux Suite! Room 423. The concierge provided a complete tour of the stunning hotel, and then escorted us to the suite...http://www.brp.ch/en/suites/lavaux-suite.html
3 short hours later we go to the terrasse for our complimentary champagne, then off to dinner - a 6 course wine pairing menu by Anne-Sophie Pic with wines from Chateau Gauby - with 3 star Michelin chef Pic and winemaker Gerard Gauby both in attendance! They each greeted all of the diners, making the rounds of the entire restaurant.

The next morning the sun was out, we had a lovely petite dejeuner in the dining room of the suite, then we took a delightful 3 hour cruise on Lac Leman. We return to the hotel to get our luggage and car - as the concierge knew we had to drive through Geneva rush hour traffic on our way to France, they provided a bag of fresh fruit and water to sustain us :)
There is a sense of pride the staff had working at the Beau Rivage, and to a person they were gracious and professional.
A Five Star experience from start to finish - OUTSTANDING.

My wife and I enjoyed four glorious days and this five star hotel. The attention to detail was superb. The quality of the facilities (rooms, bathrooms, spa, pool, grounds, etc.) was what you would expect from a five star hotel...exceptional. The staff would go out of their way to satisfy any needs that we had. Obviously having a hotel on the shores of Lac Leman, with the Alps as a backdrop, is breathtaking. We strongly recommend reserving a room with a lake view if possible. This is the finest hotel that we have ever stayed at...we didn't want to leave.

We spent two wonderful nights in June at the Beau-Rivage. From the moment our car was picked up to be garaged to the smooth and efficient check-in, including a personal escort to our room by a friendly reception staffer, we knew we were in a superb hotel. "Elegance" is the best word to describe the property. The hotel is georgeous and the views are superb. The room was beautifully decorated, the bed was large and very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. I cannot say enough about the incredibly friendly and helpful staff, all of them! For lunch, we were directed to the lovely lobby casual dining area facing the lake. The lunch was delicious and, of course, the service was very attentive. Our two breakfasts in the beautiful dining room were delicious with excellent service. Alan, the chief concierge, could not do enough for us, giving us terrific advice about restaurants (including a gem a short drive from Lausanne), directions and ideas for our visits in other parts of Switzerland. He is clearly a Beau-Rivage treasure. I don't know how they do it, but every single staff person we met was always attentive, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. The Beau-Rivage is expensive but worth every Swiss Franc we paid.

Room Tip: Our room did not face the lake. AQ lake view would be a good choice.

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.

My family and i have high standards and we really enjoyed our stay. Make sure to get rooms on the right side of the hotel as you face the lake as they have all been recently remodeled. Its expensive but the location is terrific.

Room Tip: make sure to get a newly remodeled room. views of the lake are great but more expensive

In my opinion the best hotel in Lausanne. Although it is not my style, but my last stye I've got freshly refurbished room and I must say it was very luxurious.
On top of that on the second day I found in my room greetings with chocolates - very tasty surprise :-).
