“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

While planning our swiss road trip we had decided to spend 2 days in interlaken. After doing a lot of research into hotels in interlaken we found most to be either too cramped or too expensive. As a result we decided to widen our search and came upon hotel Gloria in the quaint little town of beatenberg. It has big, clean, cozy rooms with great views of lake thun.

Most of our interactions were with bernhard and he was a very helpful and patient host. The complimentary breakfast was amazing. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting interlaken.

My wife and I were pregnant when we stayed at Hotel Gloria, and this was our last trip as a couple. We had the most memorable time and thoroughly loved our stay with Jackie and Bernard. They would serve hot milk in the room at no extra charge, take special requests for Shruti who was vegetarian and made a real special birthday treat on my birthday. Their recommendations made us re-work our plans to picking a clearer day for Jungfrau and adding a day for Thun via the finiculaire, and each time they were bang on target. The views from the room were breathtaking as well. We will certainly come back with our little baby boy Kanav to show him the place where we spent our last vacation with him still inside.

Make the effort to go to the top of the nearby cable car. The scenery at this time of year was stunning. Jackie & Bernard run a really friendly team at the hotel. Nothing appears to be too much trouble. There are some really spectacular views all around, but make sure you ask Bernard what the weather is up to before setting off, as it can change very quickly at this height. A trip up the cable car to the top of Neiderhorn a must, with stunning views and relaxed walks. There is a great cafe at the top to refresh you prior to descending back down to the hotel either by the cable car, walking or hire a scooter. A fabulous break and away from the hustle of Interlaken.

Bernard and Jacky are the consummate hosts. Their friendly staff, beautiful food, panoramic terrace for an evening drink all add up to perfection. We have enjoyed many an evening on the terrace, drinking their lovely wines and enjoying the beauty of Switzerland. We highly recommend Hotel Gloria and encourage many to visit. Thank you Bernard and Jacky xx

We spent a lovely five night stay at Hotel Gloria earlier this month. The hotel is a traditional Swiss chalet situated in a village high above Lake Thun with uninterrupted views of the Eiger and the Jungfrau. Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean, and our balcony overlooked the magnificent view. We ate every night in the restaurant and found the food to be well-cooked and imaginative. There is a friendly feel about Hotel Gloria - friendly but not intrusive. The hotel bar is used by the locals, including a local bridge club when we were there, and the hosts, Bernhard and his (Australian) wife, Jacky, were always interested in what we were doing and ready to give advice if needed. It was on their recommendation that we took the cable car up the local mountain - the Niederhorn, and it was beautiful. We sat and watched the paragliders taking off, and glimpsed a small herd of steinbock or alpine ibex perched on a small ledge (very rare evidently).
Many thanks to Bernhard for the information about Lausanne which was the next stop on our Swiss journey. We spent much more time in the Montreux area than we were planning to, and it was worth it.

My wife and I had the most wonderful time with Jackie and Bernard at Hotel Gloria. They made my birthday special with surprise decorations and champagne. They brought hot milk to our room every night before my pregnant wife went off to bed, without charging for it. They had good vegetarian options besides their signature recipes. Their travel tips to us were perfect and we were always glad we took their advice. We met another pregnant couple at the hotel during our stay. But most of all, their warmth, hospitality and every little thing they did during our baby-moon made it one of our most memorable trips as a couple. We will bring our baby there for sure when he grows up and will probably stay in the same room!
