This was one of the best hotel experiences I have had in recent years, and given that I spend 2 nigths every week staying in hotels this is a serious accolade. The owners are as friendly as everyone else has said. They really make you feel welcome in their home, but without becoming overbearing or ever-present. The room was spacious and clean. The main doors opened out onto a balcony that had unobstructed views across the lake to the mountains. It is hard to descrbe just how breathtaking this view is, and because the hotel faces south, the light changes throughout the day. We had wine from the bar at a very reasonable 4 euro a glass and just sat and watched the sun set. Beatenburg has local restaurants, which were on the basic side and probably a little expensive for what they deliver, but you are here for the location and the view, not the food! Beware of walking along the road, especially at night as the hotel is at one end of town and the road is twisty and dark. Breakfast at the Alphotel is a "continental" buffet, but with high class local cheeses and delicious variety of breads. Overall this place exceeded expectations, but do not go if you are looking for all night activity or indeed anything but tranquility and beauty.
