As was hoped for this was traditional (horse hair matresses, plump duvets and a roof top room with a view of the lake). great food in the Lord Nelson restaurant with a good selection of local wines and fish from the lake (maybe?). It hit the spot and ticked all the boxes for what were looking for.

I think this is the best hotel in Murten. For me, has been a great experience, I have traveled to Switzerland in February 2008. The town is very small and there are not many activities to do after 20:00 pm, this is a matter in which the hotel could work, by offering more options after this hour. The breakfast is... More

Hoped for a sea-side hotel, which this was, but other than the restaurant spending the night would be better done up the hill in the town of Murten. A number of hotels are at the top of a small hill that give better views of the Murtensee and would be away from the main street. The Hotel Schiff is pleasant... More

I went on a day trip out to Murten to enjoy the fine fall weather and have some Egli (lake perch). We decided on the restaurant at the Schiff am Rhein, as the menu was more reasonably priced than that at the nearby Vieux-Manoir, and the dishes we wanted were available at Schiff am See, as well. We would regret... More

This place was Ok...nothing special. Room was very basic. Nothing to distinguish it. Bathroom was OK...small but clean. No airconditioning and we could have used it. Restaurant was OK...expensive and average. Room was clean but very basic. No charm at all. Location was good. Could walk to ocean or town easily.
