The hotel is located directly in front of the lake and the ski area is just a 5 minutes walk. A walk around the lake takes less than an hour and there is also a waterfall nearby. The family room was like a mini-apartment and quite comfortable. The indoor pool and the sauna facilities were good. We took the half-board... More

We stayed for one night at this nice hotel. There is a garage for your car, which is well connected to the hotel / rooms. There was a warm welcome and a very detailed information on the hotel, its services / amenities and surrounding. The rooms are cozy, with much timber. We had a terrace with lateral view of the...

Wonderful experience traveling as a group of six friends for the wedding of two special friends. Perfect reception venue. Amazing view of the lake from our suite that very comfortably slept us all. Staff were very friendly and happy to accommodate anything we needed, for the wedding and beyond. Highly recommended.

Had the opportunity to stay here for a few days on a driving holiday in Switzerland. The drive itself was pleasant, off the highways and lovely to come across this wonderful hotel and location. Enjoyed our stay, the walks around the lake, at the waterfall and a trail or two. Relaxed and Rejuvenated. Would come again.

The location is beautiful by the lake and there are lots of nice walks in the region. Activities for children etc. One of the reasons why this place is very "touristy" in a cheap way. The hotel wants to play big but it fails. The quality is lacking. The "fruit juice" in the morning comes from a machine that mixes... More

The Hostellerie Am Schwarzsee was perfect on paper, while in reality there has been some issues 1) the indoor swimming pool is minimum 1.40m deep, which meant our kids could not be left playing at all. 2) the playroom they mentioned was full of toys but: was in the basement (no windows), shared with hotel staff wardrobe (they were coming...
