“Totally Perfect Surprise Break”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

A surprise 40th birthday break from my husband. This is a very special place - quirky yet so comfortable and full of character. Breakfast and the Skier's Menu in Brasserie Konrad was truly amazing - worth a visit in itself! Location is perfect - just over an hour from Zurich by taxi and our return journey was by train (station opposite the hotel). Super friendly staff and attention to detail is impressive, particularly in the Brasserie. Our room was lovely - great views, entirely comfortable and very clean. Being English we like a cup of tea. Would it be possible to have tea/coffee facilities in rooms?

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when on a Topdeck tour. This hotel was such a pleasure to stay at, and we enjoyed everything about Engelberg and what this place has to offer. Clean, rustic rooms with breathtaking views, close walk to everything that you need, food was beautiful and the bar is one of a kind. Staff were very friendly and helpful too! Would recommend anyone travelling to Engelberg to stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the smaller building on the 2nd floor. fantastic room!

Had a great stay at the lodge in feb 2014. We all loved it - very friendly service, familiar and unpretentious. The three course dinner included in the price was great. Breakfast very good too - We do love to go abroad but a lot of the times you get served a croissant and some jam for breakfast. Not the case here - a good Scandinavian breakfast, the perfect way to start the day before you hit the slopes. Will definitely come back next time we hit Engelberg.

Thank you Adam!

As skiers ourselves, we know the difference between a full ski day with a croissant in your stomach, or a full day with a real hearty breakfast. We work hard to make our food worth talking about, so really happy you noticed.

Even though it's full-on summer here, we're planning for another great winter at Ski Lodge. Last week, we got a 14 meter long wooden sofa delivered to our patio, and we have more surprises both in the rooms and the terrace to come.

We hope to see you back when the snow starts falling :-)

Stayed here for a week for a snowboarding week.

Building is nice and in a great location, a short stroll to the train station and the easiest way to get to Zurich (airport).

Checkin was simple and our room was ready. But no help with bags.

Our room was OK, not very big but everything you need for a week in the snow. Bathroom however is incredibly small.

The meals at night are a good standard and would recommend doing this as the place is so expensive, but so is all of Switzerland. The dinner staff are lovely and friendly.

Bar, the bar is comfortable and nicely set up. Bar staff are pleasant and cheerful.

You can buy your lift pass at reception, which was easily done. We found the reception staff to be not the happiest people to deal with.

Not sure if I would stay there again, possibly take a look at other options in the village.

Hi Petamy,

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we're always looking for ways to improve our Ski Lodge.

The restaurant is our real darling, and we're happy you noticed that we've put a lot of effort into it. Regarding the price level, that has to do with our core beliefs. We use no shortcuts in our kitchen, meaning quality ingredients, sourced locally when possible, and cooking everything from scratch. All of which ends up few francs more, but also a whole lot better in our opinion.

I hope to welcome you back again soon! Cheers from the sun!

Eric

Perfect for a group, rent a few rooms and enjoy dinners in the hotel restaurant which is quite good. Very nice staff, friendly atmosphere and great alternative. Nothing special but everything you need on a ski trip. Would stay here again.

Overall a very nice "boutique" hotel. The bedrooms are a decent size and reasonably furnished - major bugbear was the shower which was completely useless - it was a hand held with no wall bracket to allow you to stand under it. No bath either which is a shame as its great to soak ofter a day on the slopes. Nice bar with good atmosphere. Restaurant was good with a set meal option for half board - although the food was a bit too "fussy" for skiers / kids and they seemed phased when we asked for somethingelse for the kids and didn't have anything to offer - so not child orientated! Good breakfast buffet.
There is a hottub and sauna in the garden - but the staff forgot to turn them on!! - we're more interested in being on the slopes than attending to the needs of guests it seemed

Thank you for taking the time to review us and giving us a couple of hints on where to improve.

We have rooms with showers and baths, and we try to accommodate everyone's needs as far as possible. About the restaurant, we don't have a kids menu - but if we get a little notice, we can serve up any special requests you might have.

We hope to welcome you back soon again.

I do not recommend this hotel to anyone again. Rooms are okay, decoration and location is great. But we felt a bit misplaced, service is very unfriendly and not service minded at all. The waitress prefered to chat with the swedish guests than to have a look what is missing from the table or the rest of the hotel guests.
Sadly.. never again and i will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Price / quality is just not appropriate.

I'm terribly sorry to read your review about us.

When we founded this hotel 6 years ago, we wanted to create a memorable service experience that went beyond the formalities of traditional hospitality. Meaning that a member of the staff should be knowledgable not only about food, wine or the check-in process - but the overall experience the guest is looking for. Similar to visiting a friend in another country, he/she should be able instantly guide you to the best cafés, beaches and secret spots. Or a foot massage!

Sadly, we've failed here and made you feel unwelcome - and I'd like to find out more about your stay to be able to improve. If you email me at eric@skilodgeengelberg.com I'd be very interested to hear more and also invite you back to give us a second chance.

Cheers from a sunny Engelberg.
