“Wonderful lakeside setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We stayed at the Frohburg in September 2013. I doubt if there is a better site for a hotel on Lake Lucerne. The hotel, which does B&B but would also provide an evening meal if requested, had a balcony to every room and breakfast can be taken at the lakeside. There is a small lounge area. You are charged for parking almost everywhere in Switzerland but, for a modest fee, the Frohburg has arranged for parking very close to the hotel. Nowhere in Switzerland is cheap, especially with the current exchange rate against the pound, but we would certainly recommend the Frohburg for a quiet stay in a great lakeside setting.

Room Tip: Every room has a balcony overlooking the lake.

There is not enough praise for my wonderful hosts. I read the reviews, and maybe it's impossible to give them full justice. It's better than it even sounds (at least that was my experience). This is a family run hotel and you will feel as if you are staying with loving family members from the start. The rooms are simple, but ample, clean, very Swiss, very comfortable, tasteful and efficient. The bath gives the feeling of luxury, with deep solid tubs. The hotel is small (12 rooms), and centrally located, so restaurants, ferry and shopping are very close. My hosts were very knowledgeable of the parking situation and worked out a very amicable situation. They were also knowledgeable of the town events and local history, which was very interesting. As others stated the beautiful lake view from the terrace was amazing. Each room has a small terrace for sitting and nice bistro table. As stated, they provided a really lovely buffet breakfast, where they seemed to cater to each guests' preference and desire. They always seemed willing to go the extra mile and did so with your genuine wellbeing at heart. Swimming access right on the lake with a certain privacy and lovely small gardens were also very much appreciated. They are a lovely couple and the stay at this hotel was perfect for a really enchanting quiet vacation.

Room Tip: I think all rooms in this small hotel are good.

Very good location in Weggis with a terrace onto the Lake. Only a few minutes walk to the ferry. The room was of a good standard with a small balcony looking out onto wonderful views of the lake and mountains.
Very hospitable hosts that spoke good English and provided an excellent buffet breakfast served on the terrace. (however this only happened on the hosts say so) Downsides were cigarette smoke from the terrace wafting up to the balcony, not being advised the car parking permit given to us by the hotel came with a daily charge and the free wifi was not available in the room.
