“Only okay”
Reviewed 5 August 2008

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was okay. We were quite dissappointed of our room, because everything was very old and needs a renovation. We are not superpicky, but for the price we paid we expected a nicer room. The only modern thing was the flatscreen...

Our conclusion, not recommendable for young people, too expensive and old for what you pay.

Reviewed 16 July 2007

We visited Geneva earlier in the year on business and drove to the Bernese Oberland for the day. We fell in love with the scenery and decided we would go back to the area for a proper vacation.
We went at the end of summer, a quiet time for tourism between the summer and ski season. The weather was changeable but we had some really excellent days, though they can start of foggy.

The hotel is beautifully situated offering stunning views over Thunersee (Lake Thun). Situated midway between Thun (15mins) and Intelaken (15 mins) on the north (quiet ) side of Thunersee. Berne is about half an hour drive, Lausanne 1hr, and Geneva 2hrs

We had the Interlaken Suite which is more of an adjoining apartment, than a suite, certainly the biggest accomadation we have ever enjoyed from any hotel, and well worth the extra over a standard room.

The hotel was immaculately clean, as you would expect in Switzerland, and remarkably friendly. The manager and his wife came around the restaurant and chatted with all the guests each evening. They were very friendly host.

The bedroom was well furnished with comfortable beds, and ample wardrobes, the bathroom was well appointed there were three huge sofas, a desk with wireless internet, a large dining table with eight chairs, and a fully equipped kitchen, with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave and cooker. There was a large covered balcony, which overlooked Thunersee, and had a table and chairs and two loungers.

The restaurant offered a table d'hote menu. There were limited choices on the menu, but the quality of the food, the cooking and the presentation was superb. Wine prices were very reasonable compared with Geneva!

The spa/pool is wonderful. Its like swimming in a hot salt bath ! We were fairly active walking and touring so we only had a look at the solariums and saunas, but they seemed very inviting also.

The locale is beautiful. Interlaken, Grindewald, Lauterbrunen, Thun, the Eiger, all within about 30 minutes drive. Many beautiful walks, cable cars, moutainrailways, pleasure steamers, bicycle rides (downhill) etc in easy driving distance.

This hotel was about a third of the cost of the place we stayed in Geneva, and provided excellent value and quality. We will certainly go back to the area and would only chose this hotel.

  • Liked — Friendly, helpful staff, good food, cleanliness and great pool / spa
  • Disliked — Parking spaces are limited and very tight !
