It is tough to beat the location.
Here are a couple of other places you might want to check out:
Hotel Kreuz Ligerz:
Herr Mettler and his wife ( Frau Mettler -Teutsch) have a really nice inn. Very simple. The Teutsch family has vineyards close by.
The restaurant specializes in fish, and usually has fresh lake fish. Salt water fish come in from Zürich. No, the Zürichsee is not salt-water...just a port of entry for air-shipped fresh fish. Never had zeetong at the Kreuz, however.
Herr Mettler is the chef and he has a delicate hand.
The rooms are large and look out on the lake. It is true that the trains on the Bielerfuss line go past close by, but, at night, the double glass windows insulate the rooms from the sound.
My only hesitation in recommending it is that Herr Mettle has not been in good health recently, but he has been hard at work every time that I have been there over many, many years, and as recently as this last September. No worries about quality, just concerned that they may stop operating at some point. So many inns have done that...and the Mettler's children don't want to take it over.
A much more elegant place, with extremely friendly hosts, is the Hotel de l'Ours in Sugiez. They have their own boat landing for the lake boats, on the canal between Lac Neuchatel and the Murtensee.
A quite good kitchen, a few very nice rooms, and an amazing wine cellar. Plenty of wines from Mt. Vully, also known as Wistenlacherberg. Theplace is extremely well run. The views are not as nice as those on Skt. Peters Insel. but a meal under the chestnuts in the warmer months is a quite nice.
