  • Not to be missed.. step back in time.

    by markcC1253ZJ on 2019-08-20 08:19 am

    We've now stayed here several times and once again can't really fault the hotel. The staff are lovely and the hotel full of charm and the food is amazing. It's a great place to relax, with some spectacular views or take a boat ride, better still go visit the James Bond retreat at the top of the mountain which isn't far away.!

  • Lunch on the terrace

    We stopped off for lunch during a boat trip on Lake Brienz. We were seated on the upper terrace with a spectacular view of the lake. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our waitress was charming and very helpful. One member of our party has celiac disease and every effort was made to accommodate her. She had the grilled hamburger patty with lovely potatoes. My entree was trout and it was delicious, served with the same lovely potatoes and spinach. The menu highlights for us were the mushroom cream soup and the creme brulee. We enjoyed looking around inside the old hotel and the funicular ride to get there was a special treat. We did not have time to hike up along the falls, but the younger two members of the party made a speedy dash down the hill in time to catch the next boat.

  • Most beautiful Belle Epoque Hotel with stunning views

    by IwanWollerau on 2019-08-02 02:14 pm

    Whether you book a room with view to the lake of Brienz or to the Giessbach waterfalls both views are absolutely beautiful.

    We booked a waterfall view room, which was small but nicely furnished. There are larger rooms with balcony too, but all taken. So early booking in this hotel is recommended. The view was stunning, the noise of the waterfall not disturbing at all (especially when the windows were closed).

    The meals in the three restaurants of the hotel are excellent, however in the upper price range (not uncommon in Switzerland). Good service and lovely views.

    The immediate sourroundings of the hotel are very scenic and invite for short or longer walks.

    There is a natural pond, in which you can swim, nice but one has to get used to this.
    The staff is friendly, very professional and very helpful with information about the many things to do in the area.

  • Historic adventure

    by 859saidam on 2019-07-28 12:43 am

    Hotel is true historic hotel with all comforts of modern day. Hotel location is fairy tale like: waterfall background is surreal. I was amazed how well everything is organized: you get there on a boat, take funicular - with free hotel voucher. Hotel personnel works like a clock. There is a great flow of tourists, however, hotel staff is very professional and friendly. Recommend hotel restaurant for dinner. Great food, service and experience.

  • Surreal Switzerland!!

    One of life's great experiences and a great way to soothe afternoon, especially if followed by a hike back to lovely Iseltwald, is taking a boat on the beautiful Brienzersee to lunch at this legendary destination! Extraordinary views of the lake and waterfall. An amazing Alpine adventure!
