We stayed here for a night after hiking over the pass from Griesalp. After a long hot day it was pure bliss to arrive at the hotel. The location is second to none - we had the most amazing view of the lake and the mountains from our bedroom window. The staff are very friendly and helpful- they came up... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights in September 2012. We absolutely adored our stay here. My husband has nicknamed this place "a little piece of heaven." It was so serene and beautiful. You are completely surrounded by mountains and have to take a chair lift up. The mountain lake you overlook is like glass... More

Always ask for the daily special, it is really fantastic!They provide menus in different languages so don't be scared to ask.The daily tart is always fabulous too. This place is the same price if not a little less than the restaurant by the gondola, there is more choice and it doesn't focus on chips, you can ski at you leisure... More

My wife and I spent a few nights here with our 6 month old son and absolutely loved it. We have traveled extensively and rank this as a "top 3" destination. The views are out of this world!!

We stayed in diferent mountain lodges and huts on our hike from Meiringen to Adelboden but the Hotel at the Lake Oeschinen was definitely the best choice! The room was rustic and clean & the food was delicious. Even if the price is higher than in other huts - its worth it!

After a short but beautiful hike from Kandersteg to Oeschinensee we found a sunny place on the terrace of Hotel Oeschinensee and not only enjoyed the tasty and fresh lunch but specially the friendly and fast service and of course the amazing view over the clear blue lake surrounded by mountains and glaciers. The owner even showed us around so... More

This was the 4th time I stayed at Oeschinensee and I love this simple Hotel. The owners and staff are super nice. Their enthusiasm and positive manner is very uplifting and enhances the mountain experience. The rooms are simple, neat and clean. Modern bathrooms and showers are conveniently located down the hallway (no big deal). Restaurant service inside and out... More

Stayed 2 nites at this little hidden secret place. We loved the view, solitude n quietness if the place. It felt like u were in a little piece of paradise away from the rest of civilization, v close to nature. As this place is on a mountain location, it can get v chilly in the evenings n early morning, even... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, the lake and the mountains were fabulous but the hotel isn't worth the money! Rooms are too small, toilets and showers are not en-suite (which would be ok for a hostel but certainly not for a two star hotel). Dinner already at 5pm (kitchen closes at 6pm) and breakfast was just a bad joke. The... More

Dear nairn74. Thank you for your honest feedback. In the meantime many things changed trying to improve our quality. The kitchen still closes earlier than in other hotels which is communicated with every reservation. Our brakfast variety has been improved over the last 2 years since you stayed in our house. However we still hope to welcome you another day... More

The location of the Hotel Oeschinensee is truly magical located on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland. Teh hotel itself though fails to live up to this promise. The kitchen shuts at 6 so if you are arriving after a long days walk make sure you are there early. The rooms and bathrooms in particular... More

Dear northumbrianscot Thank you for your honest reply. We adapted dinner times and in the past 1 year we did not get any complaits again about dinner time. Taking complaints very seriously we are always trying to improve our quality. We hope to welcome you again at Oeschinensee and send you our best regards. More
