Hotel within easy reach of the station and to Interlaken . The hotel gives you a card to have free travel by public transport in the local area. We went on the train in the afternoon to have a look at Interlaken and have a drink and came back again for dinner at the hotel. This train gets you to Interlaken Ost, which is the next stop and the end of the line for this connection. The other station in Interlaken station is Interlaken West, at the other side of town. There are connections by bus from Ost to West if needed as I think trains to Berne and other main cities go from there. The hotel gave us a time table for the trains but you can manage without as plenty on large notices around the station. It is a nice, fairly obvious stroll to the centre from the Ost station but too far to walk to the West station from there. There are plenty of bars and hotels on this route (Hoheweg) which goes past the Hohe-matte park area.
As we happened to stay here on a national holiday (1st August), we went down to Interlaken again after dinner and enjoyed the amazing fireworks in the Hohe-matte park which started just before 10 pm. We needed to get transport back again at about 11 pm. In fact this turned out to be a bus (slightly confusing from the time table even though it has a picture of a bus on it if you look properly). Anyway it was fine. The bus came and all the world got on it. The first stop was Wilderswil station so that worked out ok. I am glad we had done the trip earlier in the day though. There were taxis at the train station so we could have taken one if needed.
Very nice dinner at the hotel. We had the "fit" options with salad. I am not sure how fit they were as there was quite a lot of mayonnaise on some of the individual salads. Very nice though. Lovely pork fillet. We spent CHF98 (£68) on dinner for two with drinks and coffee and shared starter, perhaps a little pricey. Our room was upgraded on arrival and had fantastic views of the mountains and village in a corner room with two windows. The decor was rather brown but spotless and roomy and the beds very comfortable. The room cost CHF220 (£153)for one night including tax. Breakfast very good. Staff very helpful, particularly at the reception. No air con.
