Waiting more than 1 hour for 3 pizzas. Finally the pizza is not the right one a pizza where gorgonzola is missing.... I tell it to the waitress and she takes the pizza back to the kitchen where they add 4 little spots of cheese and pass it to the microwave. the pizza is just awfull! am I suppose to pay this? The terrasse is full of flies. A very bad experience for me and my guests!

Glynis, are you sure we were at the same hotel? The experience you describe is completely unrealistic to the actuality of the experience. The staff were most unhelpful and unocomodating and no hot water for 4 days is most unexceptable from a paid holiday experience. In regards to the "excellent food" could I ask what it was exactly that you found within the "bowl of lettuce leaves" for a salad so endearing to your taste buds?

If no hot water, a lack of palatable food, rude and unhelpful staff (turning the lights off and stating Christmas is over during the meal while still dining), and less than satisfactory living standards is your idea of an amazing holiday then may you continue to enjoy them as we shall be never using Newmarket travel again or putting up with such appalling conditions in the future.

Kindest regards

I believe we were on the same trip as lynsey of reading,I disagree with her, Our room was clean, bedding and towels changed every day,shower was in a corner of the room, but toilet was in a seperate area. Manager and staff were friendly, the meals were excellent, Unfortunately there were a couple of people who were incredible rude to the Manager and staff. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back, the monastray bells can be loud, every hour a...

We booked to go away for a "Wonderful Christmas" in Switzerland but our dreams were shattered on arrival at the Hotel. The Hotel Manager was arrogant and rude and the food was dispicable. The room had paint flaking from the celing, a cracked window and the bed was broken. The bathroom facilities were located in the room and we had no hot water for four days.

The bar and restaurant closed after the evening meal at approximatley 9.30, the manager expected us to walk in -7 degrees celcius to a pub that was not local for evening entertainment.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, it was supposed to be a special christmas away and we feel that we were robbed of our christmas.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!!!

Einsiedeln is a pleasant small town that is the location of the historic and magnificent baroque Benedictine Abbey of St. Meinrad. This summer a sort of Passion Play will be performed in the Klosterplatz.

The Hotel Sonne is a modest but nice facility directly on the Klosterplatz, the great plaza in front of the abbey church. It is a 5 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk from the train station.

Our rooms with private baths were small but efficient and satisfactory. Our rooms faced the plaza. The staff is fluent in English and helpful. Fruhstuck was quite adequate.
