... wonderful place to relax, at the shore of the Lake of Neuchâtel: bright lights, perfect for taking pictures, for day dreaming or enjoying joyful nights after a superb dinner in the restaurant or after a relaxed stroll in the old city ... The service of the receptionist/concierge was just perfect: The young man from Portugal took care of our... More

Can't complain about anything. Excellent service, lovely location, a bit pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for Switzerland. The service was first class, nothing was a problem for the team Special mention to Iman the bar-tender who had a great knowledge of Fever-Tree Tonic Water....a personal favourite of mine

The Beau-Rivage Hotel is easily in the top 5% of Hotels in which I have stayed! It is by far the best hotel I have visited in Switzerland. I was there for a meeting and spent two nights. I had one of the least expensive rooms on the top floor and had windows facing the lake and shore. The room... More

The hotel belongs to the Relais and Chateaux group. Situated on the lake in the very picturesque town of Neuchatel. Had room facing the lake. Their dining restaurant was indeed a great experience. With views of lake and snow capped Alps. Food was delicious and their local area Swiss wines were a scoop. Very difficult to get those wines outside... More

Ideally located close to city center and most businesses, the Beau Rivage is situated right on the Neuchatel Lake. Contrary to many Swiss hotels, rooms are large by European standards, and fit US standards. Rooms typically include a good size writing desk, with Ethernet and WiFi (not free), a small dressing room with amenities (shoe shine, shoe horn, umbrella, etc..),... More
