The staff were the friendliest of any hotel we've stayed in, and the rooms were clean and had a great view. Great decor, classic without being dated, and the restaurant had great food, including freshly caught, local fish. The breakfast had a good selection of food as well. We were given directions for a great walk around Vitznau by the... More

We have stayed at this hotel for six years and eagerly await our next visit. The setting is idyllic, right next to the lake and the boat station and adjacent to the "Rigi Bahn" for the cog trains to Mt Rigi. The bus stop is a two minute walk away.

Dear guests Thank you very much for the feed back. The place where our hotel was built is absolutly fantastic. So we give our best to improve comfort, service and innovations to keep the hotel as a public place.
