The hotel is very clean and tidy with a beautiful view. The staff are very friendly and helpful. However if we'd known that the hotel specialises in guests over 70 ( actually I reckon most were over 80) we wouldn't have booked. Note to self .. read the small print on Booking.com! The pool seemed more geared to physiotherapy than... More

This hotel is in a remarkable setting providing hiking in lush green hills with amazing views of the lake. It is peaceful and quieting to those of us who are in Switzerland to get out of the rat race. The rooms are spacious and luxurious and the staff extremely attentive. It is tended like a beautiful garden. If you are... More

The extremely positive reviews I read here are suspiciously over the top. The place is nice, but it is very much like a rehabilitation center for seniors. The rooms are clean, well enough furnished, and mine had a nice view (albeit over an adjoining roof) to the lake and nearby Alps. The breakfast buffet was fine and well-stocked and the... More

My son and I stayed here one night during our 3-week trip to Europe and were very pleased and impressed. The view is superb, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet is superb. Can't wait to return!

This property is above the fray of Lucerne, and the view is wonderful. The breakfast is simple and well prepared. Your coffee or tea is served with white gloves, I don't see this at every hotel. They even provide transportation from the Bahnhoff at 40 minutes past the hour.

My husband and I stayed at Kurhotel Sonnmatt at Lucerne for 1 day. It was the most beautiful hotel with extraordinary service and breathtaking view of Swiss Alps and the Lucerne lake right from their gardens. The hotel is situated in outskirts but is very well connected by public transport. We travelled by bus to the nearest stop. There is... More

My wife and I stayed in this place for 2 nights in May 2016. Our first impression was that this was a health resort or rehab centre for the elderly. You can feel hospital smell in the corridor and most staff here dress like a nurse. I didn't feel very comfortable to stay in a medical institution for my holiday... More

Located only 5 (or so) km from the downtown of Lucerne, on a green and pictoresque hillside, the hotel residing in a little district of Sonnmatt resembles a picture from a vintage film, kind of a castle looking at the great lake of Lucerne, the Pilatus and Rigi mountains, and far, far away. If you are lucky enough to get... More
