We arrived mid Sunday morning and we were able to go straight to our room. The room was typical Swiss style with a nice seating area along with table and chairs. It really looked great after so many visits to modern style hotels. The bathroom was adequate but in need of modernisation.
Having unpacked we went for a drink in the bar. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and this continued throughout our whole stay. This was especially true for our waitress Erica who made us feel part of the family.
We booked half-board and our four course menu on the first night was high quality and well-balanced; although we never have the soup. Our only regret was that we were not seating in the main dining area. The food over the next few nights did not reach the same standard but following a discussion with Bernard, the Hotel owner, things did improve since we were able to modify the set menu; this had not been previously explained.
Bernard also explained how he is slowly trying to improve the hotel, when funds allow. The main dining room and bar area have already been developed and if this standard is used to develop the rooms then in a few years it will be and excellent hotel.
Breakfast is already excellent with a wide range of quality foods on offer.
It is important to note that lots of locals use this hotel and there were many guests that clearly used this hotel frequently.
The Hotel is based in a Swiss village a short bus/train ride from Interlaken, where we have based our visits for many years. We were very pleased to be away from Interlaken Centre which has lost the quality and variety of shops.
We spend the week walking in the mountains, using the train from Wilderswil. This makes a great base for skiing, walking or touring as you can access Grindenwald, Murren and Wengen easily.
