We spent two nights in this hotel in August 2014, but we stayed in the annex building (the guesthouse) vice the main building because it was all booked up. The check in and checkout are at the main building up the hill, about a 3-4 min walk. My review is for the room at the annex vice the main building.... More

We stayed here on 3/08/14 on an over night journey. We stayed here before for 5 nights about 5 years ago and loved it then. Well this time was every bit enjoyable, only thing wrong was we only had one night this time. Food was excellent, served in restaurant with beautiful views over the valley below. Staff were exceptional and... More

Magnificent hotel set at foot of alps with commending views of Lake Lucerne. Had 2 nights here on Trafalgar tour with meals included. Fantastic place however, you would have to travel a fair way to get into Lucerne. Maybe by rail then a taxi / bus, bit I'm not sure there. But well worth the trip

The hotel is perfect located and a really beautiful building. The check-in was very good, very friendly and professional - the service in the restaurant unfortunately not so much. We had to wait very long until we were noticed and didn't felt very welcome. Maybe a bad day? But the food was very good and the view is incredible. Attention:... More

Beautiful setting with decent food. Service staff very accommodating and room s very clean with quirky showers. The room rate we were quoted was a group rate for a wedding we attended. We were charged more . We thought that the corner room rate that we were charged was the group wedding rate. Instead of honoring the rate she said... More

Well what do you expect from a satisfied customer? Location: that is the best and there is a cute village and houses on the hill including a church. Cowbell, fresh air and beautiful iced capped mountains at background. Perfect location for a vacation. But you will either need a rental car or go with a tour bus for this place... More

Excellent hotel, great location, friendly staff! We spent 2 nights there, going skiing to Melchsee-Frutt (20min driving). They serve champagne for breakfast! :-) Food quality is good. Rooms are fine, they have nice balconies with stunning views!

The Paxmontana is the kind of hotel that one really wants to like. It has an amazing mountain setting with great views, yet is only an hour away from Zurich. The hotel's public areas have been tastefully restored with much attention to detail. The bar and small restaurant rooms are particularly charming. The service is good, and the food is... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with a group tour. Beautiful location. Hotel building appears magical, room interior appears to be recently renovated. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Surrounding mountains provide fresh air for refreshing walks. Wifi is 2 swiss francs for 24 hours available only in the main lobby. No TV in room but enjoy the scenic... More
