This nice hotel is situated in an ideal part of Meiringen with many of the rooms facing a mountainous view. The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished but not particularly large.
Everthing in the hotel comes with a heavy price tag; the internet, water during dinner (CHF8.50) and even a slice of butter.
The quality of the food is average. Portions are more suitable for 5-8 year-olds rather than grown adults.
The nightmare starts with the soup (never fresh), more or less a half-empty cappuccino-sized bowl, definitely not more than 10 tablespoons in all.
The main course is incredibly small, often filling just 1/3 of the plate or less. When the soup was provided, there were no salads at meal times. On other occasions when there were salads, the empty bowls were not refilled when emptied. Bread at the table was always consumed because there was not much more to eat.
Customers who complained were told that there was no more food. Some searched for another restaurant after dinner.
Don't eat there unless you're on a diet.
Reception closes at 9.00pm and no calls can be received after this time.
This hotel has great potential if managed properly but with the alarming appreciation of the Swiss Franc, inflated prices and this type of service we were glad to be back home when it was over.
