The room doesn’t have bathroom, it’s small, noisy and the Neon lights outside the windows. Horrible pillows and bed. The breakfast ins excellent and it’s in front of the lake with a beach. The staff is very kind, they speak almost every language.

Dear Alex S Thanks for this review. The hotel is really old. You booked the room without bathroom. Best regards. Jeannine & Karel Nölly Swiss-Chalet Merlischachen

I travelled to Europe last winter with my brothers and this was by far our best hotel. The staff was incredible and friendly, the location was beyond gorgeous, and the sauna was perfect in the winter! 10 out of 10 would stay again!!

Typically Swiss The quaint Swiss-Chalet Bed & Breakfast, a wooden house built in the 17th century in a typical Swiss farmhouse style, offers a special atmosphere. Low ceilings, a lot of wood and creaky More beams are an experience which you otherwise find in the lofty heights of the mountains. We offer you free parking spaces at the large parking area on the opposite side of the street. The restaurant and bar are located in the same building. There we serve as well the breakfast from 06.30 – 10.00 o’clock. Check-in & Check out will be in the Schloss-Hotel which is in the street: Chappelmattweg 4, 6402 Merlischachen Less
