I have stayed at this hotel many times as its ideal for the Railway & public transport. The previous owner and staff were always friendly polite and helpful, the food lovely and the atmosphere typical Swiss warm and friendly, the Hotel has now been taken over by Chinese. Although the decor and rooms remain the same the staff were clueless!... More

Arrived at the end of a long day's drive to a warm and friendly welcome and an excellent supper. Couldn't have asked for more. The room was basic but clean and functional, and in any case this is a budget hotel. Downsides? Not really. Decor is a little dated but well maintained and it has character that you don't find...

I've stayed here many times. It's a good budget hotel. The food in the evening is good. Breakfast is a bit sparse although the coffee is very good. Being Swiss it's spotless and the owners are always helpful. It's very well known amongst railway enthusiasts due to it's location on one of the great freight routes in Europe. Many come... More

I've now stayed here a couple of times and intend to go back for more. The staff are great, some speak English, some don't but with a bit of basic German then nothing is a problem. The staff are always friendly and smiling. The food is superb, with a choice of menu of the day (fixed starter and main) or... More

Its a nice comfortable hotel, right opposite the railway station. The rooms are cosy and warm. The view offered from our room was majestic. Its far away from almost everything, we stayed there as part of a group whose initial booking was messed up by the travel company. The owners were very helpful and warm. Nothing much to do except...

The rooms were tidy, but small. Bathroom was clean, but bed linens had blood stains. Food was superb. The hotel is very isolated and not near anything but the train depot across the street. Not a tourist location, but a fair value if you need a place to sleep and are hungry.

This is a great place to stay for a day or a week. The people do everything they can to make your stay memorable. Across from the train station so you can connect to other places. Very quiet and extremely ready for relaxation.

This is my second stay, and though some aspects are a bit dated the location, value for money, the food and the friendly staff all go to make this an excellent choice.
