Highly recommended hotel for a perfect getaway. Friendly welcome, great service, on-time delivery of all requests. Great room with an amazing view on the lake, well furbished, perfectly cleaned and with great Bulgari bath products. Food in the restaurant is simply delicious, very refined and service is at the same level than the rest of the hotel : outstanding.

This hotel lived up to every expectation. We upgraded to a deluxe room before arrival and were not disappointed in anyway whatsoever. Every aspect of the room and the hotel was in line with the price, which was high. The stay was therefore worth the cost. Over and above a great room overlooking the lake, the bar area and service...

We felt at home and most welcome here from the moment we stepped through the front door. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we were greeted in our room with champagne, flowers and delicious macaroons and chocolates. This was a present from Relais & Chateau for a previously mucked up 14 day holiday in Italy! Our first floor... More

Business trips usually mean you simply breakfast and sleep in a hotel, and on this trip that was about it for me but during the two night stay I experienced lots of things that would make me come back and enjoy it a little more: courteous and discreet service, a friendly welcome, a big room (my colleague reported her room...

In Neuchatel for just 24 hours but the Beau-Rivage made the trip perfect. The finest service levels I have experienced and a superb lunch with stunning wine list. The rooms were great and a very friendly welcoming feel throughout the hotel. We will be back for sure!

It does live up to the photos - set on beautiful Neuchatel Lake this classic hotel should not disappoint you. I would love to see parts of the rooms refurbished e.g. the bathrooms and all the doors but in typical Swiss fashion they are impeccably maintained so should not be a deterrent if you need to stay close to Neuchatel...

The Beau Rivage is without a doubt the nicest hotel in Neuchatel. The property is situated just beside the lake, right in the centre of town. The lobby is prettily adorned and is classically old-world European in design. Our room was small, but still nicely appointed, also. There are scooters you can take-out from the front desk if you feel... More

I have just stayed at Beau Rivage and what a fabulous hotel it is. Why? Simply the quality of service is incredible, yes it's expensive but it is definitely worth it. I recommend everyone treats themselves to the 'taster menu with wine' at CHF165 it's pricey but if you want to have an absolutely incredible gastronomic and alcoholic experience it... More
