Very clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff, what fulfils higher expectation of travellers in Switzerland. Nice view (ok, that's nothing special in that area), standard equipped rooms and a really good restaurant. Stayed there twice and was pelased both times. Something good if you're looking for money value in Thun.

This hotel was a tiny bit disappointing. There is nothing wrong with it, it just isn't special. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The meal was average - again you couldn't fault it but it wasn't special. Location is good.

Very nice room, breakfast buffet, and restaurant. Great view of Schloss Oberhofen am Thunersee from our veranda room. Hotel staff never acknowledge our wedding and were a bit aloof. Hotel had an antique Compac PC as their Internet cafe or you can buy WiFi which had awful connectivity.

Oberhofen is beautiful. Dream landscapes and we were lucky with the weather. Shame shame the hotel was not as good. We arrived in the afternoon and I was a little disappointed with the room. I expected something fancier and nicer. (We Took 1 grade higher than the standard- after that come the suites). Rooms are extremely basic with little comfort... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip, great view of the lake and mountains, staff were very helpful and friendly. Also good healthy exercise if you decide to take a brisk walk to the lake and back !!

I enjoyed the classic style in a perfectly renewed hotel. The big breakfast buffet was an excellent start for a vacation day. And the view from the garden on the lake is worth a coffe or tea brake. The road in Oberhofen has limited traffic, especially during the night and yet, it is close of Thun (good for spending the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It's fun to read the previous reviews in retrospect; now that we've had our own personal experience of this hotel, and the whole thing makes perfect sense and i could get a grasp on what the travelers went through to give a low rating. On arrival we were greeted by Doris ( and her... More

I stayed at the Park Hotel for 3 nights for business meetings and only have good things to say. The staff is excellent. They were always smiling and always very helpful. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable. The WiFi signal was very strong and plenty fast enough which makes life much easier to... More

Why was I not surprised!!! The service was forced and mainly rude. I have to say that the waitresses tried really hard, although it took them 3 days to figure out that vegetarian did not include chorizo or seafood. The older owners were rude and completely unable to adjust to our international group - one of them even made a... More

This was the worst experience in Switzerland. Never go there. They get an F for customer service and for being insensitive to people from other cultures and nationalities.
