You cannot expect much more from a hotel. - a welcoming and friendly staff... - a bright cosy restaurant and bar facing the lake. - a perfect location to enjoy Neuchâtel lake and city centre. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitively recommend it to family and friends.

Our second stay at this hotel and the quality of the rooms and hotel remains a very high standard. If I have one criticism it is the disappointing bar food menu. This is an issue on a Sunday evening as there is nowhere else nearby to eat.

An outstanding hotel and a tremendous place to be or celebrate a special event. It was my first time there and I am already planing my next stay! Enjoy a 5 stars hotel in a 5 stars location! it's worth it!

I've stayed for one night for business in the Beau Rivage in Neuchatel. The hotel room was very big and had everything that you expect in an hotel of this class. My room had a view on the lake. Hotel aminities were Bvlgari. Breakfast was ok.

This is for sure a nice hotel where my wife and I were staying for the second time, but our experience wasn’t on par with expectations. Since we booked at a discounted rate, we weren’t expecting the nicest room available, but come on … It was quite large and comfortable, but was pretty outdated and very dark, with only a... More

This hotel merits 4 stars rather than the 5 star rating it claims. The unpleasant reality was that we needed to pay CHF 540 per night (2 adults and one 9 year old child) for an admittedly nice Double room. This is extremely poor value for money compared with the Switzerland norm of 300 CHF which you can achieve in... More

We had a corner room and the views from both sides of the room (only a standard room) were spectacular. The room was very comfortable and they keep the air conditioning at exactly the right temperature for a good night's sleep in the very comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and our only regret was that we... More

Without a doubt this is one of the best hotels we have ever experienced. Situated on the lake with views of the surrounding mountains, this hotel and its staff are every bit as excellent as the view. Neuchatel town is scarcely a stroll away as are the restaurants, tour boats and other entertainments lakeside. Our room did not disappoint. Large... More

This is a beautiful hotel on the shore of the lake. There is nowhere better to sit and have lunch than on the stylish terrace. Service was very friendly if a bit inattentive at times- seems to be a theme here as most places seem to forget about you after serving. The old town is lovely. Walk up to the... More
