I was given Room318 which has a full lake view. The room had been freshly renovated and can only be described as beautifully elegant. There was a TV built into the mirror in both the living room and the bath room. There is a separate shower room with the shower coming from multiple shower heads. The service was excellent. This...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Hotel Beau Rivage, the service from the second we walked in was first class. The room was exactly the one I expected from booking on the website. Beautiful view of the lake, the restaurant being a 1 star Michelin was of course excellent, although expensive, but worth it, and the breakfast buffet...

This was my second stay in 18 months. I had a smaller room than before but as I was alone it was more than adequate. Well furnished and well equipped. But the standout feature of the room was the simply amazing view of Jet D'Eau from every window. Even visible from the bed! I like the hotel as its cosy....

We returned to the Beau-Rivage after a decade and it was pleasant surprise to find the hotel better than ever. It has maintained its unique old-world charm while offering the latest in wifi and other technologies. The restaurants seem unchanged but with wonderful modern menus and superb service. The most pleasant aspect of the hotel is the friendliness of the...

Sleeping, eating, resting, at the Beau Rivage Geneve is a unique experience. I would say that of all the hotels I know in Switzerland, the Beau Rivage is one that gathers under its roof the three maxims hotel requires: - friendly service, sensational dining and luxury adapted to the history of the hotel. When one family leads an hotel since...

Superb Hotel with excellent location, walking distance from Lake Geneva.. The rooms were just right, with excellent ambience and peace. Beautiful view from the room. The shower room was up to the mark and warm to beat the outside chillness. Overall a pleasurable event.

Our second stay did not diminish our high regard. We have found this hotel to exemplify everything one looks for in a top rated Swiss hotel. The location is ideal both for a lake view and walking distance to many of the best places in the city. The staff was extremely helpful both by email before our visit and in...

We stayed here 20 years ago and had a wonderful experience so we decided to return -- expecting the same. Housekeeping never showed up. The room looked as though it had not been renovated in over 20 years. And there was very little style to it. We will definitely skip it next time around.

A stylish, elegant and well located hotel. Staff very efficient and eager to help. I was travelling on business and was pleased about how smoothly everything went from check-in to check-out with just a couple of minor hiccups on the housekeeping front. Highly recommended!
