“Very authentic and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

As we needed a short break and wished to discover some of Emmental, we chose this « Landgasthof ». Very good choice indeed !
Frau Stettler is a very warm and smiling hostess, the restaurant has a very warm atmosphere and the food is good (try the rösti, we never ate such good ones !).
Room was convenient and basic and met the requirements for such a moderate price.
Above all : the dancing event once a month ! Almost everybody comes along with an « orgerli » and you attend a true and authentic folk-music event.
And the whole area is so picturesque, with a lot of opportunities for hiking

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Löwen during the Trans Swiss hike. This is a traditional hotel and restaurant. The rooms have been partially upgraded with Ikea furniture (no issue with that) but kept some of their old charm. If you like it quiet - ask for a north facing room. The single room was CHF 58, including breakfast - hard to beat that.

Dined at the restaurant and found it very good. Overall, I can highly recommend!
