    I like very good hotel stuff, they gave a lot of attention to you and try to do the best during the time we spent there.

    I dont like that they block the money from my credit card more, than the price of room. Until today i dont have the money that they have to retern. It is not a good expierence to block the money in case off...

    We enjoyed our stay at the beau-rivage especially the breakfast and the breakfast venue.Enjoyed the lake view from our balcony.Our kids enjoyed feeding the birds.

    We were promised a change to a larger room at check in.We packed our bags ready for the switch which never took place due to miss management,they should not have made a promise that they could not keep.

  • Family with children

    An exeptional atmosphere, great location, wonderful spa facilities.

    The room was quite small and the extra bed was really small for our 14- years old son.

  • Older travelers

    the location is good,and quiet.the staff were so helpfull especially Kais. he is gentle and keen and honest.he told us and helped us in planning our tour in laussane during our two day stay.i think next time if we will come to laussane we will come to this hotel mainly because of his staff

    the room i booked is garden view ,but unfortunatly it was not .from the window i was just seeing buildings all around.but i have to admit that the lady on the reception when we check in was so helpful and patient, she showed us 5 different kinds of rooms to choose and finaly we got one but at a lower level i.e from the 5th floor to the 1st.another point there was no ketel or coffee making machine,tea,sugar or coffee in the room as we were expecting as it is the case in all the 5 and 4 star hotels we stayed in in other countries.

    Location is perfect, nice lake's views, service is excellent, delicious food is everythere in the hotel and by roomservice, comfort of the spa and suitable working hours. Beautiful biuldings of the hotel are very good maintained.

  • Family with children

    The hotel is so nice that it is very difficult to specify something. In general I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends as this place is absolutely beautiful.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The Reception were very helpful and courteous; the Concierge is knowledgeable and prompt, and the Housekeeping is efficient and responsive. It is an experience that exceeded our exceptions and needs. It is the best hotel in that area, and they really do care about their guests.

    The Cafe Beau-Rivage manager and employees need to be well trained, in order to be friendly and have a service with a smile to their guests; I wasn't satisfied when I dinned-in. I rate the Housekeeping 8 out of 10 for not providing new soaps on a daily basis. And finally, the hotel is a little bit overpriced.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    On check-in, pleasantly surprised by an upgrade to lake view rooms. Excellent service - nothing was a problem for staff who were very helpful. Excellent food and excellent comfort.

    We didnt have to pay parking because we had a disabled pass. Had we not have had this I am not sure how much the parking would have been, but I feel sure it would have been expensive.

  • Older travelers

    perhaps the finest setting for a break I have had.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Just excellent place to stay with a good location.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    I did love the architecture, and the staff were lovely. The location was very convenient.

    I was struck by 2 things that I did not expect in a luxury hotel: 1) If you wished to see a regular t.v. program such as the news, you had to pay for it. I understand paying for movies, but not regular t.v. As I wanted to see the Obama election I was annoyed by this. 2) The mattresses were hard, I suggest they invest in "pillow top" mattresses that can be found in even 3 star hotels.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The view, the cooperation of the staff

    The old mail building does not correspond to the 5 star hotel

  • Couple
    9.2

    Excellent quality of service, young staff is very competent and friendly / location close to the lake but apart from any noise is great.

    small indoor pool

    The staff were professional and helpful. The location is madic.
