Right on Lake Lucerne with wonderful views. This is a very lovely antique style hotel with wonderful staff and delicious meals. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. We were a little late for dinner one evening and the staff was so gracious and made sure we had an amazing dinner. I can't... More

We stayed here for two nights when travelling by car in Germany and Switzerland.Sometimes when you enter a hotel you feel at home. That was the case with this hotel.Large spacious reception rooms , more like a club or a library. We had a nice room overlooking the lake and the mountains with a small balcony. Updated room with all... More

A very pleasant place to stay, my room was comfortable for a single traveller with access to the terrace overlooking Lake Lucerne. The guest lounges were wonderful, old style family country house with historic furniture. Good food in a great dining room with fabulous views. Very helpful staff, worth a visit, Vitznau and nearby Weggis are charming Swiss villages. There... More

The location of the restaurant is great: right next to where you arrive by boat and cross the street to get to the Rigi-Bahn, there it is: the restaurant "Terrasse am See", where you can eat outside, below the trees. So the location, the play to enjoy a nice sunny summer-day is wonderful. The prices for the food however, they... More

This small hotel is located right on the lake. The famous white tourist boats stop in front and the famous old Rigi Bahn station is just next. Great views, cosy rooms. The hotel is member of the Swiss Historic Hotels and therefore, expect a touch of nostalgic effects. Friendly staff and owners. Only had breakfast which was OK but is... More

A historic hotel sits right on the lake at the bottom station of the oldest european rack railway to the Mt Rigi - which is the only little disadvantage if you get a room facing the depot because they start shunting at around 5 AM... otherwise unbeatable offer: stylish historic interiors, dedicated staff, delicious restaurant overlooking the sea, especially the...

Upgraded to a room with a full lake view. The bed is like a lawn chaise lounge, you can raise and lower the incline for reading. Worth the extra 70 swiss francs. Breakfast included. The free parking and in lobby free wifi are also bonus. Go for the locale. Next to the ferry and cog wheel train that takes u... More

First things first: Pay the extra and go for the Superior Room with balcony towards the lake. You will not regret it. It is just fabulous to sit on your balcony and watch the lake at your feet, in the afternoon, when you just woke up, or even in the middle of the night. The hotel is truly historic, you... More

Excellent hotel with magical views. I had dinner in the garden by the lake watching the sun drop behind the mountains opposite. The building retains some of its former glory with huge public rooms and very acceptable bedrooms. Breakfast is good with a mix of breads, croissants, cheeses, ham etc. and good coffee. The three course dinner was reasonably priced... More
