Had one night there with a view of the lake. Very nice view, hotel a bit basic but compensated by very nice people. We arrived late and they were still happy to serve us a snack. The room is basic with a funny ventilator to cool the place down. The bed was a bit worn so was the bathroom. But... More

Very Good hotel, nice view over the lake during my breakfast. Only problem was no lift available, but the portier solved this very accurate by booking a room on the first floor. He even brought my luggage from the third to the first floor.

My wife and I had a quick lunch here. My "Geschnetzeltes" was very good with more and bigger pieces of veal and fewer mushrooms than other restaurants. The only quibble was the rösti was slightly overdone ie burnt but I didnt have time to send it back. My wife had the Caesar salad with prawns which was tasty and a... More

A pleasant dining room with stunning views. The staff spoke good English and wanted to ensure that everything was to our liking. The food was from a typical Swiss kitchen. I am not convinced that we would make a return visit.

This is a real first class find just outside of Zurich. The location is amazing on the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is excellent. The staff are like family. Actually better then family. Attentive and accommodating. I have stay here three times and each time gets better.

Stayed here for one night on business. The hotel was great, with all amenities - comfy bed, clean room, INCREDIBLE view. But what really stood out was the staff. I've honestly never stayed anywhere with such a friendly, professional team - amazingly friendly and polite at all times, nothing felt like it was too much trouble, quite the opposite, they... More

This is a true gem in the Zurich area. The view from the rooms is amazing. The food in the restaurant is outstanding! Mette and Freddy Kaiser are a winning team for running this hotel. We will definitely return. There is nothing like this in the Zurich area.

f you are in Meilen just outside Zurich, the Hotel Hirschen am See is highly recommended. The hotel is right on Lake Zurich – and on a clear day you have a nice view of the high Alps in the distance and on the far side of the lake. The hotel is situated in a classic Swiss Gasthof type of... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant meal here in the main restaurant recently. Attentive service and well cooked food. We both passed on starters and went for fish and a dessert. The dover sole was well cooked and partnered with new potatoes and spinach. A bottle of Puligny Montrachet was sublime and accompanied the fish perfectly. Desserts were good with the... More
