“Nice people, great location but some details let it down”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

I stayed one night at Beau Rivage whilst on business. It's a lovely old building in a great location in a lovely town. The position on the shores of Lac Leman is fantastic.

Good points:
- the people were lovely. Accommodating when we arrived late and friendly.
- the breakfast was excellent and included in the price rather than an extra CHF 30, as some Geneva hotels charge.
- the aircon in the room was epic on a very warm night. The day either side was in excess of 30 deg C.
- A minibus that gave me a lift to the office. Excellent.
- Toiletries - loads in the room free of charge.

Could do better:
- No iron available or trouser press in the room. Not acceptable for a business traveller.
- The lighting in the room was harsh. All of the bulbs were halogen spotlights, even he reading light next to the bed which kicked out a lot of heat.
- the room decor was pale and neither traditional or modern. The lighting didn't help.
- Price. The same as an equivalent hotel in central Geneva.

This is basically a good hotel with some details that would be easy to fix, especially as the staff are very welcoming.

Other than the staff working at the hotel, a big disappointment. Nyon is a lovely little village and despite the brand, this hotel requires significant investment. Rooms are dated (very dated) leaving a lot to be desired.

Location is beautiful but unforunately not worth what its costs.

Breakfast is adequate.

The location is perfect, the breakfast room is really nice as you get a very good view over the lake, and the staff at checkin are very helpful... But, that is about the only good thing I can say about this place. The room are small and stuffy. The bathrooms definitely have had their best time, and no WIFI. The only place they have internet is in the lobby. That is crazy as it puts them in the stone age. On top of that the hotel doesn't come with a budget friendly price, even if you have a corporate rate. They really need to give this place a good revamp. It has all the potential, but right now I would not recommend it.

My girlfriend stayed there one night and had on of the worst experiences ever in a hotel. Damp patches in the carpet in her room, (she stood on one and actually got wet socks!) no WiFi in the rooms and mediocre breakfast. The whole place smells of damp and for €300 a night is practically the most overpriced hotel she´s ever stayed at.

Avoid like the plague!

Room rates are fairly competitive, similar as some others nearby. Rooms are quite big and best of it is it has a lovely view of the lake and is very close to town. Nice breakfast, coffee machine in the room and also restaurants in-house but if you want to eat outside, there's also a lot of restaurants nearby. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Very near the park as well.. just perfect!!

Room Tip: Room 203 has lakeside view..

Outrageous room rates, dated rooms and average service. I get scared whenever someone mentions I may have to stay here.... Lack of alternatives doesn't help.

Actually I was quite lucky because I was given a suite upon arrival. And this suite was spacious, clean, quiet and going to the lake. There is a coffee machine in the room, and also the breakfast met all my expectations. Therefore I can only recommend this hotel to Business travellers. The transfert from the airport takes around 15 minutes and costs around 90 Euro
