Every room is different with its own charme. The rooms unite modern standard, huge bathrooms, comfortable beds with the warmth of the old 17th century stones. A Must when you are near Zürich Airport and want a restful night, right on the riverside.

Another pause on on a whistle-stop tour, Gasthof Hirschen was the perfect driving respite! We arrived in the dark and entered through beautifully lit stone arcades with outdoor seating, complete with cosy throws and blankets. The lady on check in was very friendly and helpful when we mentioned we wanted to go for a walk and find some dinner on... More

We recently flew to Zurich and needed to find a hotel near Schaffhausen to do a little genealogy research in the area. Gasthof Hirschen was a delightful small boutique hotel situated right next to the river in the town of Eglisau. Our room was perfect with a huge bathroom and excellent linens in a quiet, but sophisticated setting. All the... More

We went to Eglisau to celebrate our anniversary because the Restaurant La Passion in this small historic hotel is outstanding (see our review). We thought, although it is only 45 minutes from home, that we would spend the night so that we could drink and not drive. My husband, and something must have been lost in translation, explained it was... More

We had dinner on the terrace.... great romantic atmosphere with the string lights! Food was amazing and well presented. The waiter spoke excellent English and was very attentive. Reception was kind enough to show us one of their suites - huge room and bathroom that looks out over the Rhein, beautifully renovated and decorated. Eglisau is a beautiful little village... More

We came to eat here for my birthday, and were so amazed at the creativity, presentation and the different working of flavors that were so beautifully plated. The server was descrete but very professional, and the chef actually came out to talk with the diners! We ordered the 4 course dinner for two, but all in all it was actually... More

Thanks to the new chef quality and timing of the courses have improved considerably. There are 2 to 3 amuses bouches which are filling even before the entrée has been served. The quality of food is beyond expectation. One feels that the young and rather shy chef is ambitious and very talented. We had a wonderful dinner in a very... More

I was positively surprised by my last dining experience at the gourmet restaurant of the Hotel Hirschen in Eglisau. The food is creative and really tasty. For me it should have 1 Michelin star. Service was also excellent. I have 2 small critics: - they serve a lot of very small courses. Good to taste different things but it was... More

Stayed there for one night during a bicycle trip. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room, a mixture of old furniture and modern equipment, with a great view on the Rhine, was lovely. Dinner at the Bistro on the terrace was excellent. All in all, the best hotel during our trip through Switzerland. Of course, the price-quality ratio... More
