“Excellent shores and patio, spacious rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

We are a family of seven and stayed for 2 nights. It is absolutely fabulous, the rooms are spacious and clean. They even provides micro scooter to use around town. The restaurant and patio bar are excellent. Beautiful shores and lake. Perfect for kids....

We stayed at the Beau Rivage on several occasions this past year and each time, it was lovely. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The service is excellent ....always and the location is perfect. The outdoor patio is very nice and the view of the lake is pretty. It was our home away from home this past year and we'll be back again someday. Thank you!

This is what a five star hotel should be about. A location on the edge of the lake, a hotel that has not come out of an architect´s giant lego box and service which is so good, you fail to realize that it is there, so smoothly do the well-oiled cogs turn.

The bar is situated with a view onto the lake, so bring good weather with you, the restaurant next door is small enough to be intimate but the tables far enough apart to give you space. My standard room on the 3rd floor was large, with its own sitting area and sofa, and the bathroom was better than I´ve seen in some five star suites. The only issue with standards rooms, if mine was typical, is that the windows are high up in the walls and quite small.

Outside the hotel, you are only steps away from the centre of town and for walks in the pedestrian areas or along the lake, and the apparently small size of the hotel perfectly fits the atmosphere of Neuchatel, a little town on the edge of a lake.

And the prices? Not cheap, but not substantially more expensive than an overnight in lesser hotels of the region. Give it a test if you can, either business or pleasure.

I've been here twice on business and both times loved my stay. It's a gorgeous and sophisticated hotel with exceptional quality and service throughout. It's not cheap, eg the restaurant and drinks, but the quality justifies the prices, and it is Switzerland!

For those that have 5mins spare, Waldens the Chocolatiere in Neuchatel centre is perfect and a 5min walk from the hotel. The chocolates make for a great gift, if you can get then back without nibbling that is!

Well done to all the team at Beau-Rivage, I'll be back

A trip to Neuchâtel gave us the occasion to stay at the Beau-Rivage. We enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was very nice and attentive and the food at the Restaurant was exceptional. The view over the lake and sugarcoated mountains in the back was amazing. The large room was very cozy and comfortable. We will be back!

Exactly what you would hope for staying in Switzerland for top dollar. Highly recommended for business trips or vacations. Location could not be better - perfectly situated on the lake and across the street from the main square. Bus and tram are right beside.
