Stayed here for 3 nights in November 2014. Very convenient to Frick station; extremely comfortable bed, wonderful strong shower and nice and quiet. The hotel has essentially two restaurants, ate in the more 'rustic' one and it was good. Adequate, complimentary breakfast.

I chose this as it was close to the station and other reviews gave it high marks. The decor is unusual, with the plane tree theme carried through dining room & hallways. But the food was excellent, the local wine (red) also good, and the hosts genial. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

A year almost since my last visit, and it's good to be back. Some people seem to go across the border for lower prices, but that could be a mistake. Here you have the best rooms and a very fine kitchen with the owner Lars Laier doing an excellent job. Even if you choose to stay the other side of... More

Hotel Platanenhof is a family owned 20-room boutique hotel that is in 3-mins walking distance from the Frick train station. The owners are hands-on in all aspects of the business - they welcome you, check you in, help in the bar and restaurant and drive the complimentary shuttle that takes guest anywhere within a 15km radius. You get the impression... More

The plane trees of the name are in evidence everywhere- coloured plaster leaves on the walls and ceiling, as well as the real trees outside giving welcome shade. This hotel is a good example of getting small details right: Wardrobe has proper hangers, not those stupid things made to stop people taking them. Even in a small single room, two... More

Even though hotel is situated close to railway station, we found train noise did not spoil our 5 day stay. Room was excellent, and staff very friendly - almost like family. Owners bent over backwoods to make our visit memorable. Breakfast was adequate, and there was the offer of cooked food upon request. Make sure you stay for evening dinner... More

Located close to the Frick train station, this 20 room hotel offers convenience and comfort. I have stayed twice, once in a room by the tracks where I got no sleep and once in a room overlooking the village, which was considerably more quiet. Sleep quality is below average on the tracks side, slightly above average on the village side.... More

I just stayed there for a night, during a business trip. The first impression is really positive, as it looks really warm and each little space seems to be hand-decorated. The owner is really friendly and professional at the same time. He really helped to make my accommodation even better. The room was rather small but really comfortable. It had... More
