Always ask for the daily special, it is really fantastic!They provide menus in different languages so don't be scared to ask.The daily tart is always fabulous too. This place is the same price if not a little less than the restaurant by the gondola, there is more choice and it doesn't focus on chips, you can ski at you leisure...

We stayed in diferent mountain lodges and huts on our hike from Meiringen to Adelboden but the Hotel at the Lake Oeschinen was definitely the best choice! The room was rustic and clean & the food was delicious. Even if the price is higher than in other huts - its worth it!

After a short but beautiful hike from Kandersteg to Oeschinensee we found a sunny place on the terrace of Hotel Oeschinensee and not only enjoyed the tasty and fresh lunch but specially the friendly and fast service and of course the amazing view over the clear blue lake surrounded by mountains and glaciers. The owner even showed us around so...

This was the 4th time I stayed at Oeschinensee and I love this simple Hotel. The owners and staff are super nice. Their enthusiasm and positive manner is very uplifting and enhances the mountain experience. The rooms are simple, neat and clean. Modern bathrooms and showers are conveniently located down the hallway (no big deal). Restaurant service inside and out...

Stayed here for 2 nights, the lake and the mountains were fabulous but the hotel isn't worth the money! Rooms are too small, toilets and showers are not en-suite (which would be ok for a hostel but certainly not for a two star hotel). Dinner already at 5pm (kitchen closes at 6pm) and breakfast was just a bad joke. The...

Dear nairn74. Thank you for your honest feedback. In the meantime many things changed trying to improve our quality. The kitchen still closes earlier than in other hotels which is communicated with every reservation. Our brakfast variety has been improved over the last 2 years since you stayed in our house.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The mountain lodge is owned and runned in 5 generation by the family Wandfluh. Famous for its organic lamb dishes from the own farm, the food is healthy and served fast. There is a rich vegetarian choice (gluten free, milk free and vegan as well). To sleep here is more than just staying in a hotel. Relax on the terrace or in front of the fireplace in the evening. Enjoy the silence at night and wake up with the sound of waterfalls. A real Swiss breakfast is waiting with home baked breads, cheese from the valley and apple juice of the region. Yes its true, there are is bathroom in the room, but there are shower cabins which standard is completeley up to date. The family Wandfluh is looking forward to welcome you soon! ... more   less
