“Nice view but the food....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Rigi Kulm is at the top of Rigi, you can walk up or take the railway up or down.
We went up with the railway and had lunch at the top. Unless you dine in the inside restaurant there is a self service which sometimes has quite long waiting times. The food is unfortunately not very good so if you can, try the restaurant with service instead.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

Went there for a working retreat: 3 very productive and delightful days
The location and views are fabulous with the alpine divide spanning the entire view to the South. Totally fantastic sun rises and sun sets. Goats roaming around the hotel and the continuous chime of the cow bells - location is everything!
But that's not all: the rooms very clean - well it's Switzerland after all -, nicely appointed but basic, shower in the tub, Runtal towel warmer, with heavenly views – from the room not the bathroom mind you.
The food was lovely, great breads and Bircher muesli in the morning, delicate but rather traditional fairs in the evening, dining / day room with a well done fusion of old and new.
The service and friendliness of staff: impeccable hospitality.

HI, Just to let others know that we had a marvelous stay at Rigi,the owners and staff couldn't do enough for us. The accomodation was very good,comfy and warm. Every one went out of their way make our time in Switzerland very relaxing.I only wish that all hotels cared as much about their guests.
