We stayed here for 3 nights last weekend as a celebration for our 10 year anniversary and were very impressed with this lovely hotel. We arrived late (having flown in to Zurich and then driven) and were met by a very polite, English speaking receptionist who quickly booked us in and gave us our keys. The room was number 108, which was a corner room (we just selected a normal room when booking) and it had a great view of the River Aare with a neat little balcony (complete with table and 2 chairs) and a big window on the other side making it very light and airey inside. The bed was very comfortable (as is normal in European hotels it was actually 2 single beds pushed together but this was fine) with nice fresh white linen. The en suite bathroom was very clean with a big stand up shower and oversized sink. The parking for the hotel is just over the road and costs CHF 8 per day, which for off road parking in Switzerland is pretty good! The hotel bar is nice but was quite quiet when we were there so we didn't stop, choosing instead to go to the bar next door (although from the front it looks like it is in the hotel building) where the bar man gave us free bowls of hot popcorn with our drinks. There is a wonderful restuarant next door called The Golden Anchor which served brilliant food and drink in a very relaxed and quirky atmosphere - it was really busy all weekend but we sat at the bar until a table came free and it was well worth it. The hotel breakfast was good but the dining room was the best part - a sunny, high ceilinged room with ornate carvings and period features. The continental breakfast had cheeses, cold meats, breads, cereals, yoghurts and hard and soft bioled eggs. Other reviewers have said that it lacks hot options and I think that is fair - the only hot options were the toast or the soft boiled eggs. Checking out was done quickly and courteously and we had a great time staying here. In fact, we're planning to come back next winter for skiing in the area so we'll probably stay here again - it was altogether a fabulous place to stay for a romantic weekend.
