This was my favorite stay of the 8 hotels we stayed in on a 17 day Europe trip. It was clean and comfortable with great customer service. The beds were the best with comfortable pillows and fluffy blankets. Great windows that opened for amazing mountain views from your room. Clean bathrooms with great water pressure. Staff was very helpful and... More

I have only superlatives about this hotel. I don't even know where to start. The room was great: clean, great beds, cosy, we felt like in paradise. The night was so quiet and you could smell the hay and the grass and we felt here like children. The staff was very nice and the food was great. We would definitely... More

The hotel was in an old building but completely modern inside. Service was exceptional. Food in the bar and restaurant was typically Swiss with great quality, but somewhat expensive, but then it is Switzerland. The room was roomy, the bath modern, and it was very quiet. The hotel is right in town so the location is convenient to walk to... More

I stayed here with a group from our school and I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. I had an excellent view of the mountains from my room and my room was very comfortable and clean. We had meals at the restaurant and the food was adequate and substantial. It was also about less than an hour drive to Lucerne...... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during a tour. Nice modern room, very clean. Comfy beds. The wait staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating. Sylvia was so lovely.

This place is super quaint with really nice owners and good food! The scenery is picturesque, you can see goats on the mountainsides and hear their bells. It's off the beaten path but not isolated (there is a grocer across the street). Very clean and a really enjoyable stay!

We already asked where it is twice, all we get is 'komme, komme, komme' but no food. It's been an hour now since we ordered. At least 50 people who arrived after us have had theirs before us. Very disappointing! Nobody asks if we want more drinks either.....

Very nice family hotel, just 30 minutes from Lucerne and 10 minutes from the highway St. Gotthard. Eating and sleeping are inexpensive. There is a new building with showser, toilet and television. Wi-Fi in all rooms and free. Children's playroom on the ground floor. All rooms are very clean.

I organised my 40th birthday party at this hotel in November with 70 guests many of whom stayed overnight for 1 or more nights. They were so service minded and flexible, nothing was a problem for them. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the atmosphere like your own home. Food was great, breakfast was a buffet with lots of options.... More

I stayed here with a large group (43 travelers) in July 2013. The hotel was clean and in a safe area with GREAT views! The staff was helpful and did not seem to mind our large group as other hotels often do. The food was very good. The rooms were all comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
