We had the fantastic tasting menu for our dinner. The food, staff and service was exemplary. Attention to detail good. Lovely atmosphere. We will most definitely be going back sooner rather than later. A great gem of a find in Horgen.

Absolutely fantastic boutique hotel with charming rooms and ambiance in the historic building just in the midst of old Horgen! The most friendly personnel I have ever met, exceptional. Restaurant is a top class facility with excellent menu and outdoor seating around the small fountain, quite expensive though. in the morning the restaurant serves breakfast which is tiny but very...

The rooms in this hotel are charming, and the management so helpful. I specified that I would do a lot of computer work, and Betty put us in just the right room for this. It seemed so homey and cosy, going down to breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. In the summer it is lovely to eat outside at the... More

The manager, Frau Heider, is rude and impatient. I made a reservation by telephone, then called back to ask for an email confirmation and she gave me a "lecture" about "this isn't America, things are more slow here in Switzerland." Rude and unnecessary. During checkout, the woman handling our payment received a phone call right in the middle of helping... More

We stayed in Radisson and Bahia, Iberostar and Grand du Cap-Ferrat but in this hotel we got real calm and pleasure. Even the tolling of the church bell couldn't destroy this mood and gave more admire of the hotel and the Horgen place (really can't explain why because at home I switched off the sound of all the clocks). Every... More

Small hotel in a original antique house with small but cosy room incl. flat TV and modern bathrooms. Excellent location at the heart of Horgen, altough the nearby church bells make it a bit noisy in the morning. Hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is very good. Restaurant is excellent, super food and good service. My absolute favorite... More

This Hotel is very close to both Lake Zurich and very easy to take the train to Zurich. The hotel is a Boutique Hotel, and very well decorated in the romantic style. It is very clean and comfortable, especially the beds. The breakfast which is included is bountiful and tasty. Betty, who longer works there, took care of our every... More

This is a lovely hotel, right in the centre of Horgen and yet quiet and very peaceful. You know immediately that you are a guest in a family-run hotel where the family and their excellent staff clearly take great pride in what they offer. I stayed for two nights in September 2013 on business, but I would love to come... More
