“Great view and nice rooms”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We enjoyed our stay in the Seehotel Pilatus. The room was spacy and had a nice view onto the Vierwaldstätter See. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the terrace. It was also possible to use a pedal boat on the lake. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is very recommendable.

Room Tip: By all means, choose a room with lake view.

We called in for lunch after a visit to the Gläsi and the experience was somewhat mixed. The view from the terrace is excellent and there is a large lunch menu. Service was good and one of our party took the "catch of the day" which was supposed to be tasty and crisp. The catch was Felchen (which I have to admit I think is a boring fish anyway) but the kitchen failed to reach even this standard - it was a sad looking plate. A pity really as the other dishes were OK, nothing special but perfectly acceptable.

Overall for a 4* hotel it was a bit disappointing and I think there is better value for money elsewhere.

I had a soup and a beer on the terrace during a visit to Pilatus Klum. The view is so gorgeous. The prices are also normal, I expected more for such a unique place. I paid 14.5 CHF and the service was polite and prompt. I could watch the mountain, the clog railway and gliders.

Arrived at railway station in torrential rain and had to walk 500 metres to Hotel. There was a Party in the Park going at full volume until 2.15 am for 3 nights less than 70 metres away. Our room overlooked a building site which had been ongoing for some weeks and clearly wont be completed for many weeks to come. The Crane and other kit started up at 7.00am. on the dot each morning !
Some of the staff (particulary on reception were both unhelpful andf rude).
There was also hard landscaping works being carried out in the rear (Lakesde) part of the hotel that detracted very much from the otherwise magnificant setting. suggest wating until at least October 2014 before visiting. The food was poor; in comparison with our 2nd. hotel resort in Brig.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a Lakeside view. Eat out for evening meal but breakfasts are ok. Continental only...

A good efficient check in, the room was a good size, clean, with free Wi-Fi , a lovely balcony with fabulous views over Lake Luzern. It's essential to pay a little more and have the lake view.
The steamer port to go into Lucerne is 2 minutes away, but if you don't have one of the discount Swiss Travel passes be prepared to sell the grandchildren to afford the fare. The train is a cheaper alternative.
The car park is small, and tight and not guaranteed.
There is currently construction work immediately next door starting at 07.00am. This prevented us from sitting out lakeside for breakfast because of the noise. The evenings are quiet.
Really enjoyed the one night stay...good hotel, great views.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and have one of their best rooms with a large balcony overlooking the lake.

and the staff learn how to smile, The hotel has all the ingredients to be excellent, but somehow misses the target, Great location, currently building work maybe disrupts, Our room in the new building will be excellent when finished i.e. air conditioning actually connected, plumbing fully functioning etc. Food better than average, just, but breakfast buffet seemed to be spread over several areas involving a lot of toing and froing. I'd certainly like to return as I honestly don't think we experienced what the Hotel will be able to offer once the works are completed.

Lovely views across the lake make this good hotel stand out. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable.

The food and service are also good.

The location is good being just a short walk from the station.

The hotel was a little tired in places, but that is not a major issue. Currently there is some building work taking place next door with a little noise from early on.

Room Tip: Avoid road side and get a lake view
