“Time-Out”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Me and my Partner had a great Time-Out due X-Mas. 2 Relaxing Nights with some Welness Floating... Not direct in the City but near enough for Shopping and going out by Bus or Train or even Walking. Great Team, Great Food and Welness Area. We will come again. One of Zürichs best Price-Performance ratio!

Room Tip: All Rooms are Great, because all have great Sight seeing on the Lake of Zürich

Understand that the hotel is about 30 minutes from Zürich. It's probably most efficient to use the bus, which stops next to the hotel, but it is more ambient to walk (or take the bus) to the train station. There are a few boats from the Zürich transit network that dock near the train station. Unless you are staying in a conference here (several took place while we stayed), in which case this review is irrelevant, you should get an unlimited-use transit pass.

Now that the location is settled: we had two rooms with beautiful lake views. The window blinds are electrically controlled from bedside. The bed was excellent. Keurig-type coffee maker and minibar. Really liked the toiletries. The staff were uniformly helpful, including serving us dessert in the dining room just as the restaurant was supposed to close.

I would have liked to try the breakfast buffet which is included during a weekend. Unlike the rooms, which are remarkably economical for Switzerland, the buffet is quite expensive. No appealing alternative nearby, although we bought some junky pastries from a kiosk near the train station.

Room Tip: Get a lake view.

To be clear we were very happy with the room. It is cleverly designed with everything you need easily found in the space available. But travelers used to more room to pace or receive guests need to book one of the few suites.

The views really are spectacular (from every room, though I prefer the upper rooms) and sitting on the balcony, or lying snug in your bed, watching the sun rise is a pleasant experience. Because the hotel was renovated a year ago everything is clean and works well. The showers are great and roomy (again good use of the space available). There is free off-street parking for guests (a big plus anywhere near Zurich) or you can park inside, under the hotel, for a reasonable fee. There is decent free WiFi (you can pay for more bandwidth but we found no need for normal use), and free use of the gym / spa. FInally decent food and wine in the restaurant, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, complete an excellent package at a reasonable price if you need to be in this part of Zurich; about 10km due South of the city on the West side of the lake.

Room Tip: There is a new building site in front of the hotel, down the hill to the left. So perhaps best to b...

The old colonial hotel is gone and a star is born!!! I have been suggesting this hotel to many people! I have visited the rooms many times... there was no choice then... but then they made a renovation!!!! Their rooms are so well quality and elegantly furnished!

Many hotels have these showers that either the water does not flow out enough, is too hard, some funny combination or just some drops! Also sometimes the showers are fixed and one cannot adjust or squeezed in a corner! These showers can be adjusted, the shower head is not extra exaggerated in size but is gives such a flow of water I just wanted to shower every time!!! When one of my friends from amerce had stayed there and mentioned she showers 3 times a day to enjoy the showers, I did not think about it until I stayed over!!!

The bed is very comfortable, mattress and duvet are superb! Mineral water, juices, tea and coffee are all complimentary.
The dining is a haven of joy! from food to panoramic views to the helpful and kind waiters!

was a great weekend for the 2nd Fall Ball 2013!

The ballroom was also very well arranged and their was ample space to dance!! I really enjoyed it!

Thank you Belvoir Team

Room Tip: all rooms have a lake view of either lower or upper side of the lake!

What a nice feedback about our Hotel and our Services! We are glad, you enjoyed our dance ball and your stay with us. Indeed, our rain showers are very popular and why don't you visit us again in the near future? even if it is only to enjoy "the best shower flow in the world"!! (I really like that one)

Stayed just two nights Friday/Saturday weekend trip with family. Very clean and modern hotel with stunning views down the length of the lake, wonderful in the morning to stand on the small terrace as the sun was rising. Had a room 1xx on the lowest level which had slightly unusual layout but no complaints really, comfortable bed, excellent shower. Washing area was a little cramped as this also served as the area for the wardrobe area. There are larger rooms/suites that would I am sure have more space. Although not an issue for us but there is no bar in the room although bottles water provided.
Our other family members had a car so easy to get into the city but without it would be a walk down the hill to the train station.
Breakfast was OK, not spectacular and sometimes and the hot food was not very warm at all. You also of course pay extra for the breakfast. Again stunning view from the restaurant.
Steam room, sauna and rooftop jacuzzi was great, def worth a visit and we were lucky to have it to ourselves on Sunday morning.
Staff were efficient.
Generally enjoyed the stay.

We are glad you enjoyed your weekend trip with us! Thanks a lot for your feedback. As for the public transport to Zürich City. There is also a bus to Zürich City and the bus station is a 2 Minute walk from the hotel. This may be a useful Information for your next visit at the Belvoir!

We did the trip in August 2013 in order to stay in Zurich for a few days and catch the Robbie Williams concert at the football stadium.

I am sure there are more expensive places on this earth than Zurich, but I don't want to go. We are, luckily, what is known as comfortably off, so when we start looking at prices then I know its time to go ouch!

My wife chose the Belvoir Hotel as it is just outside of Zurich in the Burb of Ruschlikon and was therefore cheaper than similar 4* superior city centre hotels. The location is fantastic as it overlooks Lake Zurich, our room a Junior Suite was on ground level with a terrace and outdoor seating, we could see the lake from the bed. Four nights CHF 1292 (just over £220 per night excluding breakfast) including VAT. Enough on the cost as it is not unreasonable for Zurich in August.
The hotel restaurant was very good and I will review this separately.

'Grand Designs meets Bunker Chic'; I loved this place. The rooms could best be described as open ended concrete cubes.There was no finish on the walls it was bare polished concrete. The open end of the cube was the terrace over the lake.

I could imagine big artillery guns being wheeled out of the open end to bombard some poor sod on the other side of the lake.

The same theme was carried on into the bathroom and shower (the best I have tried in a hotel). There are double sinks and a big bath with jets and lights.

The bed was large and comfortable, there was a minibar, the toilet was separate to the bathroom and at night it light up from under the pedestal with just enough light to find the loo roll.

Breakfast though CHF 28 (£20) extra was more than good.

The staff were very efficient and helpful. On our various excursions on the lake we would phone the hotel and they would get a taxi to collect us from the various boat docks and bring us back to safety.

Everyone we met spoke English to some degree and if not pick from German, French or Italian. Hotel staff were all fluent in English & did not have any problem in speaking it to us.

I loved the place, it was safe, friendly and the decor just made me grin from ear to ear.

A note on the Robbie Williams Concert. The venue and organisation was awesome - beer flowing freely and loads of sausage. Despite there being 50,000 people you could still use the toilets at the end of the evening without wellies and scrunched up tissues from the bottom of your handbag. Williams was ok too.

Food and restaurants, brilliant and pricy. We ate at Lindenhofkeller (over £12 for a gin & tonic and it wasn't even a double!) but see separate review.

The boats plying the lake are very good value and food & drinks on board are not that badly priced given you are captive audience. We used the boat to get to Zurich centre as it was £50 in a taxi for the same trip. The boats run regularly like buses & the hotel has an interactive timetable in reception which tells you when the next one is due.

Would I go back? Yes - if someone else was paying! And I would definitely stay at the Hotel Belvoir.

The Belvoir Swiss Quality Hotel in Rueschlikon, Switzerland, is sort of an antithesis to a business traveler accommodation although I understand that it is mostly hosting business people. These may, for the most part, be participating in events of the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, a center for economic and social studies just five minutes away. The GDI is an institution in its own right, dedicated to the founder of MIGROS. Thus, the Belvoir makes you feel great when overlooking the lake and simultaneously providing a cool, functional room design with all the required amenities. The impression of being an atypical business hotel stems from the park-like and peaceful setting. If you are looking for big city noise and excitement, you should not choose the Belvoir.

Room Tip: All rooms have lake view!
