I love this hotel. Everything is outstanding - restaurants (all three), rooms (sometimes small, but all very good), service, building, location. The only bad thing one can say is that it is expensive. It is a pitty that the good things in life are so expensive.

Speechless. Welcoming, warm setting, world-class service. The decor is amazing, especially when we went during christmas, amazing location near the lake. Expensive room, but it's what you would expect when you stay in this kind of accommodation. The spa is also amazing. And not to mention the top notch breakfast! We will certainly be coming back here - it's made...

Can't not say enough about our stay at Beau-Rivage Palace. From the very first moment the staff greeting us as if we were their only priority. The Palace itself is a must visit even if you don't get the privilege of staying. Our room was a junior suite over looking Lake Geneva with a breathtaking vista towards the snow topped...

Hands-down, this is a fantastic hotel: the décor is amazing, fantastic interior design, amazing location, and service is what you would expect from a 5 star hotel (and the price-tag on the room). The hotel is composed of two main adjoining palaces linked together: having stayed in a room on the second floor of the "farther" palace, I should warn...

The ad claims: "So British! Cosy sofas, a welcoming and warm setting and attention to service: this is the ideal combination for an afternoon tea". However, if you like cold scones, little sandwiches right out of the fridge served in a former hall with generous side draught air, this is the place.

Dear markhenry2, thank you very much for reviewing our tea time served at the lobby lounge. We are sorry to read that the scones you got served were cold instead of warm. However, the sandwiches are always cold in order to ensure full freshness of the toppings and an acceptable waiting time for our guests. We hope to welcome you...

We were bumped to this hotel, as our hotel was closed until after the holidays. It was a one night stay, and it was just lovely. The staff made us welcome and service was top notch. They honored the price of our hotel, and gave us an exceptional room with a view of Lake Geneva. We were offered a room...

saved the best for one of my last hotel stay of this busy travel year. Besides that my navigation system guided me to the front of the hotel ... entrance is the other side ... the stay and the experience was fantastic.

This would have to rate as one of the very best hotels in the world. We stayed in a room with a belcony with a small table and two chairs that allowed you to sit with a drink and soak in the view of the lake. What can I say the food here is just amazing, the bars, the location...

Enjoyed my three days stay at this traditional Swiss hotel. Staff were friendly, breakfast was excellent and Internet worked fast. Three servers in restaurant, one each from Panama, Czeck Republic and Turkey, were very friendly and efficient. Housekeeping may need attention to small details. I discarded one pair of socks in rubbish bin because I didn't want them. The next...

The Hotel is very old style stylish and yet very comfortable. A large choice for breakfast in an elegant dining room overlooking the lake. Our room was comfortable and quiet with a very modern bathroom. Situated on the lake it is a few metro stops or taxi ride into town. The receptionist was very helpful and there are a choice...
