Hotel Bon Rivage
Montreux Riviera, Switzerland
Enjoying an exceptional beachfront location overlooking Lake Geneva from the small town of La Tour-de-Peilz, this welcoming hotel dates back more than 150 years. One of its earliest guests, among many artists who have been inspired by the setting, was the composer Richard Wagner, who stayed at the Pension le Rivage in 1865. It later became a Catholic girls school in the early 20th century before reverting again to a pension in 1947. In 2000, the Hotel Bon Rivage became the property’s newest iteration, offering full-service accommodations on the Montreux Riviera. Recent renovations since have continued to enhance its peaceful ambience.
We stay in south-facing view rooms offering a panorama of the lake, Alps and hotel garden. Each is individually decorated, and some are themed around the hotel’s history. Rooms have comfortable beds with choice of pillows, a desk, flat screen satellite TV, Wi-Fi, mini bar, safe, iron and en suite bathroom with shower, hair dryer and personal toiletry products. The Hotel Bar offers fantastic views of the lake and mountains from its open-air balcony. A buffet breakfast is served in the spacious, airy restaurant.
