There are 5 Star hotels scattered all around the world. Many are huge, glitzy and amazing. Many sadly fail to live up to their rating. The Hotel Beau Rivage is the right size of hotel for me, the right décor, a modest and friendly reception, a very comfortable lounge, all of which make you feel at ease immediately you enter through the front door. The rooms are quite Spartan but nicely furnished with good size bathrooms - in my case it was a wet room with an excellent shower. Everything you need is there - flat screen TV with great coverage of channels, a desk & chair, comfortable chairs and a small table and a big cosy bed plus a modern coffee maker. The only thing it lacked was air conditioning. The main window was a door to an oversize balcony from which the views were breathtaking. Gazing across the hotel gardens, heated outdoors swimming pool, small landing stage from which you can slip or plunge into the fresh lake water. What lake you ask? Lake Lucerne. The view from my room was looking across the lake in either direction and watching the funnelled paddle steamers and other ferries run their regular passenger routes around the lake. Weggis is one of their stops - out from and back to Lucerne. The dinning room is quite big but has been designed to make it feel more intimate. Cocktails are served in the lounge while selecting your dishes for dinner. The menu is not overflowing with choice, there is enough to satisfy most tastes and, talking of tastes, the meal was superb. Service attentive but not oppressive and made a fine end to what had been a busy day. Breakfast is buffet style with a good selection and it can be taken either in the dinning room or outside on the terrace under a striped awning. There are flowers and bushes all around which makes it such a charming garden. Did I love my stay - yes I did. Would I stay there again - yes I would.
