We love the little town of Meiringen, and planned a six day stay at this hotel based on Trip Advisor's ratings. It was even better than expected. A corner room contained bright white sheer curtains that billowed in and out in the breeze, large windows with views of the Rosenlaui Glacier and Englehörner mountains. A large modern bathroom with a huge tub that allowed lovely cold-water (or hot) soaks during the 90 temps (unusual for this time of year). The staff all spoke English, though it was fun to practice a little German too and they were very patient with that. Afternoon iced coffee and cake, fresh fruit, and teas were extras. But by far the most impressive element of the place is its chef. At first we expected to eat dinner on site only once or twice, but ended up eating there every night. It's better food than we've found at the best restaurants in the U.S., a wonderful subtlety and variation of flavors and the freshest ingredients. The salads alone were worth the stay. There are two menus: bristro and main, and we would suggest trying both. The breakfast spread is quite extraordinary too. I can't imagine there's a better place to stay in this town. We're definitely going back.
