“Great Hotel and Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We stayed here for a few nights while on a trip to Zurich. Like everything in Switzerland and Europe, the hotel is not cheap but it is cheaper than staying in the heart of Europe. It is conveniently located right behind a ferry stop enabling you to easily board a ferry that goes to the heart of Zurich or multiple other locations on the lake.

The hotel was clean, quite, romantic and the staff was "Uber" helpful.

Highly recommended.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your positive feedback. Indeed, many of our guests arrive on boat to the hotel.
What a difference to the traffic jam in the big cities!

This was our first stop on our way down to Italy. Turned into an amazing surprise. Superb family room with an amazing view of the lake. Wonderful, helpful staff. We ate in the restaurant and although pricey it was superb food. The wine list was ok and again a little expensive for a quick stop over. The meal was as much as the room. Would highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: We had a family room overlooking the lake... Was a suite with sofa bed Room 210.

Excellent stay in the Hotel, staff are excellent, food is fantastic, services at the Hotel are mostly everything you need and the views are stunning.
Negative point for me was the heat in the rooms, despite a floor mounted a/c unit I could not get the room chilled.
Apart from this it was an excellent stay.

Dear Neil
Many thanks to your feedback. We do not have a/c in the rooms at all. There is a little van, but it does not chill the room. As we are a Swiss historic hotel est. in 1642 there is no way to put an a/c
in the hotel rooms. Our four conference rooms do have a/c.

Many thanks your your great feedback of our well trained staff and the delicous food you had.
We do hope to welcome you back, maybe in another season.

At the end of our month long holiday in Switzerland and Italy, we had the privilege of staying at the Romantik Seehotel Sonne for three days. Everything from our greeting with champagne at the front desk by Marie, to our beautiful room overlooking the lake and the spectacular meals we had every night, this is one very special place.
Thankyou to Marie, Catherine, Ole, and Randolf, you made our stay so beautiful and very peaceful, so much so we didn't want to leave.
So until we come back again, for another visit, keep up the wonderful work you do for your guests, you are all very special people, thankyou, from Liz and Markus Ryf...

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed ...

I went to for dinner at the Romantik Seehotel Sonne with my husband. As the weather was nice, we got to sit outside and enjoy the a great view from the lake and the beer garden (that was very cute with lights on the trees). The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and informal, matching very well with the summer evening.
The staff was very friendly. Our waiter poured us the first glass of wine but from the second glass on and the water we had to pour ourselves, which for us was no problem at all.
For starter I had a green salad with a nice Italian sauce and my husband had a mozzarella-tomato salad that he said was very refreshing. For main course I had the entrecôte that comes with stuffed tomato and bacon muffin. As I don’t like stuffed tomato I asked the waiter if it would be possible to change it for fries but he said just the bacon muffin could be changed for fries (I don’t know why; I didn’t really get his explanation). But I did get some tasty vegetables instead of the tomato. The meat was fine cooked (well-done, just like I asked) and was delicious. My husband had the ribeye steak with fries and green salad. He asked the meat to be medium cooked but it was well-done. He didn’t complain or say anything because he said it tasted very good. And to finish, for dessert, we had Mövenpick ice cream that is always very good.

We would like to extend a big Thank You to the Romantik Hotel Sonne for making our Wedding Day so memorable.

Firstly we were upgraded to the suite in the tower which is a spectacular room with wonderful views over the lake. On arrival we enjoyed a complementary glass of Prosecco. Staff were so friendly and welcoming – they all made the effort to congratulate us after our marriage.

We had planned to enjoy our Wedding celebration meal in the ‘Buurestube’ (one of the hotel’s dining rooms which has been preserved with the original wood panelling, furniture and pictures) this room has historic family memorabilia on display and fond memories for some of our party. Because the weather was so good the ‘Buurestube’ was closed – however because it meant so much to us to be in that room, the hotel opened the restaurant especially for us. We were served the most delicious meal complete with rose petals and chocolate hearts. The food was top class, every course was special and the service was excellent - professional with a personal touch. Despite being the only table occupied in the Buurestube, the ambience was made perfect by the fact that staff had lit the candles at every table.

The garden restaurant next to the lake offers a relaxing place to enjoy morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, a beer or an ice cream. It was lovely to sit by the lake and watch people come and go – a real mixture of folk - ladies having lunch, locals playing cards, business meetings and friends passing the time of day.

We visit Küsnacht quite often and will definitely be visiting the Sonne again and again.

This was a great location out of Zurich city center. Convenient, relaxing, boat ride into city center. Tram was close also. Our room was spacious and had a view of the lake. However, our room was top floor so the view was limited. We had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. Parking was limited but the valet did a great job getting all the cars in place. The staff was very accommodating. We arrived early and the staff happily kept our luggage while we toured Zurich. There were technical difficulties with WiFi and the staff came to our room and took care of it.
