We stayed here (for the fourth time!) in August and, as usual, had a memorable stay. To have our luggage delivered to our room shortly after arrival was a great start. We took boat trips on Lake Brienz as well as bus and train journeys in the area, all in a spectacular and ever-changing Alpine setting. We also enjoyed the... More

This is an impressive hotel whether viewed from a steamer on Lake Brienz, a car running along the shore edge or on foot. It has an elegance and quality which sets it aside and is run so efficiently by its family owners. Meal times are a real celebration of good food, well served by pleasant staff. Accommodation is enriched with... More

Have stayed at Seiler au Lac with my wife every year for the last 15 years. Maybe that says it all! The setting on the shore of Lake Brienz and the views down the lake and of the surrounding mountains are unsurpassed within the region. The Zingg Dinkel family and their loyal staff live up to their motto that 'You... More

Once again, we have thorough enjoyed our stay at the Seiler au Lac. The location, the rooms, the furnishings, the staff and the food are all the right style and balance for us. The quality is superb but there are not uniformed staff everyone looking for a tip. The Guest Card for the bus is so very good, even though... More

We had a 2nd stay at Seiler au Lac in June 2013. Our lakeview double with balcony had a million-dollar view, loveseat and comfy chair. Spacious! It also was unusually well-lit, which we appreciated. Bathroom with 2 sinks. The service-- the younger Mr. Zingg-Dinkel seems to be more in charge now, though his parents are still around-- was truly exceptional.... More

Once again we were so impressed with the Hotel, Management and Staff. The hotel is in a particularly well sited position overlooking Lake Brienz and is so peaceful and in such tranquil surroundings. The hotel is beautifully furnished and naturally very comfortable. We thought that the presentation of the food was very impressive and very suitable to our English palate.... More

We really had a good time in Bonigen. It was most convenient for the boats and the buses, enabling us to take advantage of the half prices! We had a very pleasant room with lovely views over the lake - never the same twice - but as has been said before the decor was a little tired. Service in the... More

As others say, a lake view is a must. Fantastic views all day and beatiful sunshine until around 11 am. We stayed for a fortnight in August. The hotel was quiet: a combination of the Euro's weakness keeping the Germans and French away and the Olympics keeping everyone away. Food was superb. We ate table d'hote most nights, with one...
