We enjoyed our stay in the Seehotel Pilatus. The room was spacy and had a nice view onto the Vierwaldstätter See. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the terrace. It was also possible to use a pedal boat on the lake. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is very recommendable.

We called in for lunch after a visit to the Gläsi and the experience was somewhat mixed. The view from the terrace is excellent and there is a large lunch menu. Service was good and one of our party took the "catch of the day" which was supposed to be tasty and crisp. The catch was Felchen (which I have... More

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

and the staff learn how to smile, The hotel has all the ingredients to be excellent, but somehow misses the target, Great location, currently building work maybe disrupts, Our room in the new building will be excellent when finished i.e. air conditioning actually connected, plumbing fully functioning etc. Food better than average, just, but breakfast buffet seemed to be spread...

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
