I spent my birthday weekend in Weggis, looking for a lake view. After a system error placed me in a different room, the staff at the Gotthard went out of their way - and beyond - to fix the unforeseen problem and make my weekend as comfortable and charming as possible. My dinner at the beautiful lakeside SeeHotel Gotthard Restaurant was decorated with complimentary birthday gifts, a birthday cake and candle, and I was even allowed to customize my breakfast menu for the following morning - the manager and staff were friendly and extremely hospitable. This is definitely a place to come back to; be it on your own special day, with a special someone, or with a group of friends.

Since everyone staying in Lucerne seems to want a lake view room, wny not stay on the lake! SeeHotel Gottard not only provides outstanding views of Lake Lucerne but is just a few meters from the lake itself. Everything here works beautifully, from the personal attention at check-in to the warm farewells upon departure. One of the Nanzer family members is likely to escort you personally to the rooms. Our top-floor room had ten windows, each revealing a different perspective of the town and lake. When we first arrived, we noticed that the furnishings, though clean, were a bit scruffy and showing wear and tear. One the third day of our four-night stay, we returned from an outing to new furniture--as if the management could read our minds.

In the past, in order to economize a bit, we would arrange for demipension for our meal arrangement during our stays in Switzerland, This time, however, we elected to dine at individual restaurants including those of the hote. The SeeHotel Gotthard does indeed pride itself of its Terrace restaurant, with a cool, lively chef who is a whiz at the grill. Anything you order will be of high quality. On other days, with inclement weather, the Terrace ws closed and we had to dine indoors. Here was the only problem of our stay: the flies. They showed up in the morning and in the evening. With so little air moving in the breakfast and dining rooms, flies were a nasty diversion.

I must also comment on something in common with all seven hotels/inns that we stayed in this trip. Without exception, we were asked upon departure if we wanted our bill in US dollars or in Swiss francs. I hope everyone realizes that an additional charge is levied for this service on top of any conversion fee and service charge. Be aware! Always ask for the bill in Swiss francs unless you wish to add to your bill.

One more thing. Yes, Barolo is supremely cute and photogenic (postcards are available for asking), but please do not ignore the aging Syrah whose bark seems to want attention for himself as well.

Here is an exceptional inn with so much calm and good cheer that one can easily forgive any shortcomings. Now start saving for your next trip here!

Room Tip: Come back often to try all the rooms!

If only all hotels were run by such a welcoming, friendly family who try to remember every guest's surname, making you feel...well like a VIP !
We had a superb junior suite with a spectacular view over the lake and the mountains. A big flat-screen TV would feature hundreds of Swiss and international channels. On the other hand, WiFi in the room was poor to nonexistent.
As our stay was during a heatwave, air-con would have been an asset, but I realize that in that part of the world, a good heating system in winter is more relevant that a cool breeze from the air-con during a few hot days in summer.
The lakeside restaurant was excellent, but if you are slow eaters, tell them to provide for some time between starters and mains, otherwise you might feel a bit rushed.
Obviously, this kind of place cannot be cheap, but nobody expects discount rates in Switzerland.
As Weggis is an excellent base for exploring the Lake Luzerne area, we will definitely return and stay longer!

We stayed here as part of our European motorbike tour.

What can you say - our stay was faultless. We had a lake view room, waking up to the view was not a problem.

Unlimited choice for eating. There is a lakeside grill (a must) as well as cheaper options in the hotel including pizza and a chicken diner.

You can use the facilities of the adjacent lakeside hotel which has an outdoor pool, sauna and allows you to swim in the lake.

The staff were superb with nothing being too much trouble.

Room Tip: Lakeside - what else?

What a nice warm welcome we received as we arrived at SeeHotel Gotthard, both from the owner and from the wonderful cat Barolo. Our room on the top floor overlooked the lake with two sets of french doors opening onto little balconies. The hotel is conveniently located for walks along the lake, to a grocery store, a bakery and other restaurants, but the hotel restaurants are wonderful with a choice of seating on the terrace overlooking the lake, on the porch or in one of two dining rooms. Breakfast was the best we had while in Europe. There is an elevator, as well as a public access computer for guests' use and free Wifi.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less noise from the street in front of the hotel.

Family run, excellent service, very helpful and welcoming... They went above and beyond in helping us with our traveling plans :). Food was great... Location was perfect, very relaxing, and best view from our room with two balconies overlooking the lake and mountains- nothing I've seen better than this view we had from our room. All staff are very friendly. Special thanks to all who helped us getting public transportation set up to Zurich airport... Answered all of our questions... Book this hotel :). Thank you Nanzer family and Philippe for running an excellent hotel and service..
