    I had booked two single bed rooms but my friend could not make it. The staff was flexible and offered me a double bed room with a great view. Breakfast was good. I enjoyed my stay a lot!

  • 8,0.Very good

    On arrival at 19.00hrs, there was nobody at reception. Our key was left out for us.We booked the Superior Double Room but were allocated one of the Standard twin rooms. We spoke to the Waiter, who was as helpfull as possible, but he wanted us to wait until the morning to change rooms. But I insisted on receiving the room I booked, which he finally managed to organize for us. We were very disapointed with our meal on the first night. We understand that it is Covid but they could of least given a choice of main course. Ours was a chicken leg with pasta & veg. The breakfast at the Baren is very good and the dinner on Sat night was excellant. We were given a menu with a choice of main course. It was Valentines night and the tables were beautifully decorated. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.

  • 6,0.Good

    Great breakfast, less than mediocre room

    The breakfast was wonderful. Tasty with a lot of choice. The room was crowded with unnecessary furniture, not well maintained. All rooms were different (we had 2) in our room the toilet and shower were separate and no door for the shower are, The sink was inside the room. The room was in a section of the hotel where the access was either through a meeting room ehich was later locked or through stairs leading outside. The hotel has no elevator. The receptionist didn't warn us and we wondered around, upstairs and down, looking for the room. Unproffessional. The location was great and the parking quite decent.

    Good value, great location w/excellent breakfast

    Overall good value. The room was rustic, but quaint, comfortable and clean. The location is very good with onsite parking for only 5 CHF per day. About a 10 minutes scenic walk to the Wildersvil train station. The neighborhood and surroundings are very beautiful. Most rooms have a balcony or windows that open for a great view. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The free breakfast buffet each morning was excellent!!! Great variety with many options. The bathroom was dated and could use a refresh/remodel, but overall an enjoyable stay in a good location for the price.

    Excellent staff support, the gentleman that helped me dropped everything to help me find a spot, and even moved his car so I could use a property parking spot.

    Wonderful breakfast! Pleasant front desk. Our room was in the adjacent building and not as charming as the rooms in the main building.
