I had a soup and a beer on the terrace during a visit to Pilatus Klum. The view is so gorgeous. The prices are also normal, I expected more for such a unique place. I paid 14.5 CHF and the service was polite and prompt. I could watch the mountain, the clog railway and gliders.

Arrived at railway station in torrential rain and had to walk 500 metres to Hotel. There was a Party in the Park going at full volume until 2.15 am for 3 nights less than 70 metres away. Our room overlooked a building site which had been ongoing for some weeks and clearly wont be completed for many weeks to come.... More

A good efficient check in, the room was a good size, clean, with free Wi-Fi , a lovely balcony with fabulous views over Lake Luzern. It's essential to pay a little more and have the lake view. The steamer port to go into Lucerne is 2 minutes away, but if you don't have one of the discount Swiss Travel passes... More

Lovely views across the lake make this good hotel stand out. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. The food and service are also good. The location is good being just a short walk from the station. The hotel was a little tired in places, but that is not a major issue. Currently there is some building work... More

We arrived at this Hotel at night in the dark. We woke in the morning to a fantastic view of the lake from our balcony that was quite breath-taking. The rooms were basic but clean and tidy. The food in the restaurant was very good. The price of drinks in the bar were very expensive, but this was Switzerland and... More

I too stayed for 4 nights as part of a Treyn holiday and do not understand the negative comments in some previous reviews. My single room was spacious with two balconies and a good view of Mt. Pilatus. The food was also very good, with a particularly impressive choice at breakfast, and the staff were pleasant and efficient. Hergiswil is... More

We have just been on a trip with Treyn and this hotel was one that we stayed in on this trip. I looked on Trip Advisor to see what people were saying about it and to be honest I was not looking forward to the holiday because of the negative comments, well this was our experience.

The hotel is conveniently located by the lake and offers descent size rooms. Rooms are either facing the lake or the street. Rooms are descent and clean, no wow factor. The restaurant offers a large menu with multiple choices of meals including swiss specialties. Not much to say on this hotels, beside the view which is stunning.
