“Like dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I was hesitated about its location first, once arrived at front of the hotel door, everything changed. Hotel located in the higher interlaken (beatenberg), that you can enjoying beautiful views at days and the magical sounds of cow's bells at night. Mrs. Rita takes care of everything during our stay starting from kind greeting at arrival till the checking out. They also have the best restaurant in area, preparing tradition dishes and even international and they all delicious. Rooms varies, we lived in family small apartment has two bedrooms with in-room bathrooms. Wooden Decorations, windows, doors, wardrobe and bed, all smell woody. The other smaller rooms distinguish by the amazing balcony facing lake (family apartment has no balcony). I'm highly recommend the hotel if you're looking for relax, peace and feel the tradition of Swiss.

Very good value older hotel in a beautiful quiet location 15min drive out of Interlaken. More like a big friendly B&B than a hotel.

Comfortable cosy rooms with very welcoming and helpful hosts. Set menu, home cooked dinner is a special treat if you have been travelling for awhile. If you want to eat elsewhere, there is only one other restaurant within comfortable walking distance, but a few more within a short drive.

Breakfast is OK - the usual range (fried or scrambled eggs are extra cost), but fruit salad looked very tired, including brown apples, when we were there.

If travelling by bus, be aware it only goes every hour and like all public transport in Switzerland is expensive at 6 euro one way. Get off at Waldegg (there are 10 stops in Beatenberg) and walk 150m up the hill

WiFi is reliable and a reasonable speed.

For those travelling light in summer, ask for a room with a balcony (especially one overlooking the valley)- its great for drying the washing.

Room Tip: Get a room looking towards the alps - the view is awesome - and you get the afternoon sun.

Its a very cosy hotel and the rooms are done in traditional swiss furniture and something most people would love straight away. We had excellent breathtaking view of the Jungfrau region from our room and was extremely mesmerizing to wake up to in the morning. Both Kasper and his wife are warm and welcoming hosts. Completely loved our stay here

Overall, highly recommended. Very reasonable price, especially considering the view. Only a 15 min bus ride from Interlaken. Breakfast included with basic package. Half board available.

Very nice rooms. Our room had a balcony with an unbelievable view of the lake and the ice capped mountains (Jungfrau, tallest mountain in Europe). Service was excellent, spoke English very well and was very helpful in helping us plan our trip. Fast WiFi included. Dinner is available upon request, the meal we had was excellent. It was pricey (around $40 per plate), but that is common up here. The price was very reasonable for the area, however, if you don't have a car, consider the fact that it will cost you 6 Swiss Franks (about $9) per ticket EACH way to and from Interlaken. It adds up. Our hotel room included a pass allowing unlimited use of the bus within Beatenburg, which will get you to a few restaurants and shops. Breakfast was typical, some bread, deli slices, cheese, eggs, fruit. Sufficient to get the day started and tasty. Parking available.

To get there from the Interlaken West Bahnhof, take bus 101 to Beatenburg. It leaves a few minutes after each hour, all day long. The only possible complaint was the walls were a little thin if the kids in the next room were running around. However, at night, it was dead silent in the room. You don't realize it until you open the window and hear the cow bells ringing. If you wish to eat dinner your first night, be sure to contact the hotel before you arrive to ensure a table. A nice way to end a day of traveling.

We stayed in Hotel Beausite for 8 nights June/July time and had a wonderful time. Rita and Kasper made us so welcome. Our room was so comfortable and the added treat was the location of this hotel with views overlooking Thunersee and on the left the majestic views of Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger mountains. The gentle sound of cow bells was so peaceful. Rita, the owner, was very helpful in giving us advice about tours and places we might like to see in the area.
Kasper her husband and the chef created wonderful food and as we booked half board we were delighted with our dinner every evening. All the staff at Beausite were lovely and so attentive and nothing was any bother. We were recommended to Hotel Beausite by a friend in Northern Ireland and we were not disappointed in any way. Thank you Rita & Kasper for making our stay at Beausite so memorable.

Room Tip: A room overlooking Thunersee stunning view

Rita, the owner, is very kind. She provides information about the tours and prepared a special table for dinner on my birthday. The food is very good and for a very reasonable price for Switzerland. The view of the lake and the Alps is fantastic. If you want to feel the real atmosphere of the Swiss countryside, this is the perfect place.

We have come from the United States three times over the years to Beatenberg to stay at the Beausite Hotel. We enjoy the beautiful location and the majestic view of the Eiger,Moench and Jungfrau, the three big mountains of the Berner Oberland. Looking down at the Thunersee with its surrounding mountains is another treat. The Hotel facilities are comfortable, the food is superb and the owners are most gracious and hospitable. It is a terrific place to hike, bike, paraglide or ski in winter or just plain relax in this quite and private location. From the Hotel it is an easy drive to Interlaken if one likes to do some heavy duty shopping. We are already looking forward to our next stay at this wonderful place.
