“unique”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Unique rooms next to 'noisy' stream so keep the windows shut! A little way out of town - 2 miles which is a shame as the place is definitely worth a visit. We only had a couple of hours and that wasn't enough to see everything. Stunning historic old town. Sadly we went on a Sunday so everything shut. Had very expensive meal in hotel restaurant which is Michelin starred. Steak was 74 swiss francs!! Fancy food and fabulous cheese trolley.Breakfast was first class.

Room Tip: try to be as far away from noisy stream as possible

As the title says, the hotel has its good points and its - well - other points.

It´s in a historic building, and has just a small number of rooms, each unique in its own way, and tastefully decorated. So maybe the bathroom fiitings are a little out of date, but you get a good-sized and very attractive room for a - reasonable - price. Breakfast is ok, but the size of the hotel means that they are often preparing for a small number of guests, so the variety is maybe not huge. But I enjoyed it.

The restaurant - not tried - has the reputation of being very good - and correspondingly expensive. I´ll try it some time.

Now the buts: Sadly, this historic watermill is in a valley surrounded on all sides by industrial zone-style buildings, a railway line, roads and a motorway. There´s nothing they can do about it, but the contrast gave me personally a shock when I saw it. The noise of the river behind drowns out a lot of the traffic, but not all of it.

Room Tip: They are all different - why not call and ask what they have available?

I would recommend this hotel with some significant qualifications: first, it is a bit out of the way, as others have noted. You can get to the center of town or the lake by taxi for about $20 USD or by bus for $3 or so. My biggest problem with the hotel was the wifi, the signal for which was at first nonexistent and after some rebooting of the router remained weak enough to be an ongoing issue. This may not be a concern for many, but since holidays are always working holidays for me, it is quite a negative and I spent a few nervous hours wondering if I was going to deal with the major and exhausting inconvenience of cancelling and finding other accommodations. Even after resolution, the internet remained so slow due to the weakness of the signal as to impact my work.

On the positive side, the hotel is a lovely old manse of some 300 plus years in age. It was originally a mill, and the mill-wheel and its works are still charmingly visible on the stream on which the house is built. The building and immediate surroundings are picturesque, and we enjoyed one of the suites on the top floor with wood-beamed ceilings. The restaurant is excellent if a bit pricy for dinner, breakfast is great, and above all the staff is helpful and caring. One feels, in a way, as if staying in an old inn with a kind and helpful innkeeper. Much recommended if connectivity is not a concern.

This 10 room hotel is located smack in the middle of Nauchatel (with free parking). The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained with a friendly staff that is more than happy to help with everything you might require. But the most important feature of this hotel is the fabulous restaurant. The food is delicious, beautifully presented an not too expensive. The best restaurant is Neuchatel by far.

We stayed in January in one of the rooms of the 2nd floor. The room was very cosy -with a very comfortable bed- and the bathroom was fantastic, with a big bath for two and a shower. Our room faced the waterfall behind the building, which can be a bit noisy if you are in the first floor -we did visit one of the rooms in that floor- but it did not bother us at all. We also dinned at the restaurant; the food is imaginative and good quality, but it's expensive, from my understanding. In fact, the dinner cost us more than the room -we had a two couse meal with two glasses of wine. All in all, the experience was very nice and the building is lovely, even if the surroundings have suffered from the construction of some industrial buildings. I do recommend it.

I arrived after a harried day of traveling and instantly felt relaxed. Pros: site, the hotel is an old mill with a stream running by the terrace. The breakfast is great. The room was huge and a great value in expensive Switzerland. Free wi fi. Cons: getting there is odd, it is in the middle of freeway ramps, but once you are there, you would think you are in the woods.

A small hotel with individually styled rooms in a romantic setting. But be aware if you travel with heavy luggage and get a room on the 3rd floor, as the hotel has no elevators.
The restaurant is absolute top and probably the best in Neuchatel for French cuisine.
