We stayed in this hotel a few days ago for a business meeting in Neuchatel. What a wonderful place!!! Built on and into the lake, very original architecture, great comfort and design, excellent service, wonderful bar and excellent restaurant. Great location for meetings and/or leisure, we really enjoyed it, only regretted not being there for longer and will most certainly... More

I was lucky enough to be surprised with this little gem through a work trip. The driveway is very unassuming with a small modern entrance. The reception staff are polite, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to give you a fantastic experience. I was able to borrow an adaptor plug from the hotel as Switzerland has different ones...

Stayed in room 19. The Balcony opened out on the lake. Each room was independent of each other. Very spacious room and bathroom had a jacuzzi. The highlight was the shower head that changed colour when in use. Good spread of breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juince from the machine. Friendly staff and great signal of the wifi. Would strongly... More

This is an unusual hotel - nothing to look at from the front but behind the reception area are stunning rooms over the lake. You are driven there by a buggy which adds to the fun. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need, including Nespresso coffee machine, mini bar, complimentary water. The beds are large and comfortable even... More

Stay here for a second time and totally enjoy. The hotel itsef and all the facilities are really for 5*. Staff and service they provide are very professional.I had only one point- the restaurant in the hotel could have been better. In case of dinner- use du Peyrou! Otherwise highly recommended.

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The rooms are big and beautiful. The staff is fantastic. And the best part are the breath taking views from each balcony of the lake and snow capped alps. Worth every penny. I would recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a luxury experience in Switzerland. The restaurant and bar are also very nice as... More

We spent a night in June with my partner and I must stay it was a very unique experience. We had purchased a special offer via Internet for a one night stay and dinner. When booking, I had specified I was booking for a special occasion and the staff was nice enough to put us in a "Lacustre" room (over... More

Much has been said about this hotel and of course, there is not only praise. Our overnight stay though was perfect. Friendly reception, bikes available for free for some nice rides along the lake, lovely over water room, good beds, free wifi and a superb meal, as well as a perfect buffet breakfast. The place ain't cheap and I would... More

A night in this hotel is unlike any other. The experience is serene and magical any time of year (I went around Christmas and loved every minute). The entire experience is very exclusive and private- from your room it feels like you are in your own private hotel... or perhaps aboard your own private yacht as you look out over... More
