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 the lake) (there are only few of them the other ones are by the lake). Wow, what an experience! It is not like staying in a standard 5 star hotel. It is a mix between staying in an exclusive suite and a luxury yacht. The room was really comfortable. The bathroom was huge, with a spa. But the best part was the terrace over the lake with ladder access to the lake (I had a swim even though the water was still cold at that time of year). Staff at reception was more than welcoming, helpful and friendly. We used the bicycles at disposal to go and explore the port nearby. I would have loved to give a 5 star rate but unfortunately we did not have such a great experience at dinner. Nothing about the quality of the food. But as I said I had booked via an offer that included dinner (but only a specific menu) and the waiter made us feel we did not deserve the same treatment as the other guests. I don't want to extend on this and still think the whole experience was great, just a shame we did not feel that welcome at the restaurant. I still very much recommend this special place to anybody wanting to live something unique on Lake Neuchatel.
