“Uneven Throughout”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

A hotel so disparate that it's almost impossible to rate.
Great location above the lovely village of Brienz with awsome view of lake and mountains. Nice gardens and rustique surroundings. Hotel consists of divers structures seemingly added over the years to the original chalet-type building, but without a recognizable master plan.
Consequently, the 40-odd rooms range from (very) nice to rather poor regarding size, comfort, bathroom, amenities, view, etc. (Sample shortcomings of our "comfort" room: plastic-and-lino bathroom, stone-age TV, no safe nor fridge, meagre guest supplies, soso housekeeping). Strangely, the published room-rates differentiate between standard and comfort rooms only.
Pleasant enough staff. Willing, if somewhat amateurish here or there.
Good food for (1) dinner, adequate breakfast.

Room Tip: We saw only 4 of 40 rooms. "Kristall" room is entirely new and is very likely the top choi...

We stayed for 3 nights on our way back from Italy. We had a duplex apartment at the back of the hotel. It was comfortable enough but really old fashioned. No view from there either. On the upside, the breakfast was really good, and the food in the restaurant was nice, if a bit expensive. Service was good. The bar was cosy, especially as the weather was so bad, the fire was lit - in the middle of July. My daughter enjoyed the pool.

Nice situation above Brienz, in an old landscaped garden overlooking the lake.
Accommodation scattered over a number of old 1970 type buildings with a lot of stairs. We asked for the best room, which had a large picture window overlooking the lake, but the decor was bizarre, including a large tree trunk, and a bed fashioned as a birds nest, which made access difficult, and was very uncomfortable.
The bathroom was a wooden shed like structure in the corner of the room, lighting very dim, and a tiny TV from 1970 with 4 channels. Dinner quite good and substantial for Switzerland, but expensive. Breakfast OK basic. Overall poor value, 250 CHF per night plus dinner, for such a run down outdated old place.

Very nice hotel. our room had a forest scene on one wall and part of a real tree trunk to give the impression of space and nature, very nice touch. we ate here as well the food was very good.
word of warning not very accesible for less abled people . Lots of stairs and slopes.
hotel is ideally situated for the Rothorn railway which is an absolute must if you visit the area.

Room Tip: as k for a lake view room

Two couples head out into one of the most romantic parts of the Berner Oberland, hoping to get an amazing place, given the price tag, only to discover that they're accommodations are bizarre to say the least. Mour bed, bed side tables and motif were shAped like Swiss cheese with poorly framed quirky photographs of some ancient Swiss mountaineer. On the first night the dinner was quite good, but on Easter Sunday the risotto tasted like chalk and the service was wanting.
Ii won't return to this hotel, despite the wonderful views it afforded us over the Brienze Lake. There must be many other hotels or guesthouses with more charm and at a better deal than the 250 CHF a night price!

Room Tip: We had the " comfort" room which was number 17 with a great view of the lake.

We arrived late afternoon in Brienz and it looked amazing. The hotel looked ok and dinner was expensive but good, the room was outdated and very small. Night came and with it cockroaches, I could not beleive my eyes. We were in Switzerland (the Gem) and the hotel had these disgusting insects. The girl at the reception acted very normal while cocroaches marched on her desk. I was disgusted and terrified. We had to change plans and unfortunately stayed in Brienz only 3 days. Expensive stay for having to share your bed with raoches.

I have stayed at the Lindenhof many times over the years, so I can say the quality is consistent. The location with terrace overlooking the glacier green lake and surrounded by its own well kept park is hard to beat. The food is good, (Swiss with a modern feel) if over-garnished with herbs from it's own garden, but that's a matter of interpretation. The rooms are all furnished around a Swiss mountain theme. This is certainly fun, but after a bit can feel a bit crowded. I did not share the notion that the rooms were too small, the childrens' rooms were also adequate but surprisingly plain. But then they were too busy at the indoor pool to notice.

When I had a complaint regarding one of the waiting staff, this was dealt with promptly and professionally by management.

I would definitely stay again, a fun, welcoming place with views to die for.
