For business Beau-Rivage Palace, Lausanne, Switzerland. It's the only place in the world where I can say I've had birds eating out of my hand - I was sitting on the terrace overlooking the gardens with a succession of brightly coloured feathered friends swooping down to share my continental breakfast! This hotel combines the best of Swiss elegance with clinical business efficiency. It also has an unexpected warmth and joviality.

Sophisticated conference rooms make this perfect for business meetings, while the leisure facilities include golf, tennis and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
