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.

very pleasant hotel well situated on the lakeside. Liked the idea of the outdoor pool being iced over and used as an ice rink. Room was good with views of lake and mountains. Food was good, staff were excellent, lovely sense of humour and always helpful. Not as expensive as I thought it would be. Previous comments about no lounges... More

Just returned from staying a week at this excellent hotel. It was wonderful. Great location, on the shores of Lake Lucerne. We took our 11 year old granddaughter because we knew it had a swimming pool ( indoor) , but we're pleasantly surprised to find it also had an ice skating rink. No charge for these facilities for guests at... More

It is difficult to rate this hotel. The rooms were adequate,beds not very comfy but ok. Hergiswill is a very small town so little to see. We went with treyn holidays and were treated to very poor evening meals. Starter of dressed lettuce leaves, pollock baked to death main and ice cream for dessert. Think they need to re think... More

We stayed here at New Year on a Treyn railway holiday. The hotel is close to the railway station from where frequent trains run to beautiful Lucerne. From there it is easy to travel to other such delightful places as Rigi, Mount Pilatus, Chur, Interlaken and Engelberg. The hotel was extremely clean and the staff who waited on us were... More

We have recently returned from a five night stay at this hotel under a group booking with Treyne. Initially Seehotel Pilatus seemed to match its 4* rating. It is nicely located by Lake Lucerne only seven minutes walk from the train station, the large indoor pool and jacuzzi looked enticing and the hotel seemed full of guests. There is a... More

As we were on a Shearings holiday to Switzerland and staying at the Pilatus we seemed to get 2nd class treatment. All our rooms were away from the lakeside views, and some overlooking the busy main road. Our breakfasts and evening meals were not as good as other visitors were getting in the main dining room. Our room was above... More

This hotel is situated on Lake Lucerne. Stayed here for three nights on tour of Switzerland. Lucky to have one of two lakeside view rooms in our coach party. The rest were put into an annex facing a side street and had to crick their necks to get a poor view of the lake. The hotel had fairly good rooms... More

Returned from this fantastic location sunday 23/09/2013 after spend in a week touring switzerland enjoyed the friendly atmosphere from the staff at this hotel would recommend people to stay here. Single rooms plenty big enough because you are out all day and it's only a place to sleep at night.
