Pros: very clean, cozy lodging. Great location (but Murren is so small, everything is a good location!) Breakfast was good, wasn't as noisy as we had read. There was a miscommunication somehow, and we had failed to book the last night that we had planned, but Denise shifted a few things around and was able to reserve the 4th night... More

We stayed 5 nights at Chalet Fontana. We stayed 1 night in a "top of the house" triple and 4 nights in the apartment located in the same building. Bottom line - Chalet Fontana is reasonably priced, well managed, clean and in a fantastic location. Depending on room choice, bathroom is shared or private. Book Early!!! We wanted to stay... More

This chalet is run efficiently and smoothly. The host is pleasant and direct. The rooms are modest and comfortable. The bath is shared in the main house. The town is a perfect quiet getaway and served as a break for our family in the middle if a whirlwind euro tour. Thanks for the amazing views and quiet!!

Stayed two nights in the top floor room with shared bathroom. Great view of the mountains from our window. Not a problem sharing the bathroom - no waits. Assortment of hair dryers provided. Very comfortable accommodation and good breakfast, but the best part is the friendliness and helpfulness of Denise. She willingly offered suggestions and checked the weather for us... More

The Chalet Fontana was very clean, simple, and easy place to stay. Denise was very friendly and accommodating. She'll converse with her guests over a good continental breakfast. There's even a comfy little lounge in the breakfast room where you could sit and read a book on a rainy day.

Stayed here 4 nights and loved it. Stayed in a small double room and found the accommodations perfect for our needs. The room was clean and had its own sink. Denise was super friendly and helpful. As a native English speaker, she answered a bunch of our questions and provided great advise on what to do in the area. Breakfast... More

We stayed for two nights in August in the two bedroom apartment. The apartment probably could sleep 5 to 6 people. We were only there. But this was the only thing available without sharing bathroom. The room was very clean. The owner Denise is very friendly and helpful. We left our Rick Steves guide book in the car in a... More

We are a family of four spent 3 nights in this wonderful chalet and we loved every minute of it. Host Denise is a very warm and charming English lady and she made us felt right at home. The location of the chalet is just perfect. It has a great mountain view and a supermarket is just 10-step away. The... More

This was our first trip to Murren and our first ever stay in a B&B. Denise is wonderful!! The weather was less than ideal during our stay but she gave us great hiking ideas over breakfast. When the clouds cleared for 15 minutes one day, the views were breathtaking! We stayed in the smaller double room and found it to... More

We can only rave about our stay at Chalet Fontana. First off, Denise is a wonderful hostess and was generally on hand for info, to chat and always for breakfast. We are a family of five and since the apartment was rented out by the time I tried to book she could only provide a situation where our party was... More
