“Good Location for skiers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2008

We stayed here for 11 nights and found the location near the Titlis cable car was ideal - only 5 minutes walk. The food was good and varied including a cheese evening on Wednesdays, either a raclette or fondue. The time of the meals was a little inflexible - 18.30 -19.00 and was usually finished by 20.00. The owners were quietly efficient providing help and information as required. The room was clean and although not spacious it was well planned - we were able to find plenty of space for all our ski gear. A heated boot room is provided on the lower ground floor. The breakfast was excellent and is available from 07.30-10.00. Overall the accomodation was very good, providing good value for money.

This was a very clean and pleasant hotel about 10 min from the centre in a quiet scenic location. the rooms were well equipped but with low wood ceilings if you tend to be claustraphobic. We stayed for 10 days so by week 2 the menu was pretty much the same as week one. Not much fresh fruit, lots of pasta would say convenience/pre-packaged. owners were rather humourless and strict e.g. shouted at couple for taking breakfast rolls! Would say they need to learn more interpersonal skills! Very nice and helpful person called Nadja worked on reception. Breakfast was good but not for a gluten free dairy free diet, again no fresh fruit etc

My wife and I have just returned from Engelberg and our 10 day stay at the Hotel Cathrin.
Our stay was excellent, the owners and staff were very helpful, the food very varied and plenty of, particually enjoyed the extensive buffet breakfast and the different soups each night from the owner chef.
The hotel boasts a quite beautiful sun lounge to relax in at any time of the day/evening, a very pleasant dining room and good sized bedrooms with a balcony in most cases.
The bathroom is fairly small but okay with a good shower cubicle.
The location for us was perfect, being a 10 minute walk ( on the flat ) from the centre of Engelberg and close to the lifts for Mount Titlus.
Engelberg we found very quiet at this time of year although it did come alive on Swiss National day.
We highly commend the Hotel Cathrin, being by far the best hotel we have stayed in on our visits to Switzerland
