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

We're locals. Been here for coffee a few times. Tried this out for a dinner. Excellent. Super service, great food. Small menu, but something for all tastes. Mrs. R had excellent dial special; a trio of fish. I had the local speciality, Zurich Geschnetzeltes, chopped veal.

I discovered this nice restaurant by chance for a Monday lunch and it turned out just perfect. They have a very nice terrasse out on the lake, very calm and relaxing. Apparently they have given their whole restaurant's interior and outdoor design a brush-up and it looks amazing. The food is good and considering prices that are usually seen around... More

There are rooms to the lake (even room numbers) and rooms to the road (uneven room numbers). I strongly would advise not to take rooms at road-side as in the morning there is always heavy traffic. WLAN in the rooms is included. Breakfast is ok but not more. Staff is very friendly.
