“CHALET HORNER - Great chalet and hostess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

We stayed at Chalet Horner (not the hotel) for 3 nights in May. We stayed in the studio apartment on the lower level. Theresa (the hostess) and Chico (the resident dog) were wonderful hostess and host. The gardens and grounds are beautifully kept and full of flowers and fruit trees. The studio apartment had one large room with comfy bed, sofa, TV and table with chairs under the window with great view of the Jungfrau. Enjoyed having breakfast there each morning. The kitchen, small and compact, had everything needed (even a freezer so we could make ice!) to prepare meals. The bathroom, also compact, was clean and efficient. There is a covered patio area with table and chairs that has a fantastic view of mountains, waterfalls, pastures of grazing sheep and cows, great place to enjoy a glass of wine. The train station, grocery store, numerous restaurants and laundry are all within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay in the studio because it was private and the views were wonderful.

If you take a quite stunning location like Lauterbrunnen, you'd be surprised you could get comfortable accommodation at a great price. Walk onto the balcony and you have a view of staggering cliffs, mountains and waterfalls, and the gentle ring of cowbells.

Hotel Horner is divided into two separate buildings: the hotel itself with pub below, and the apartment block with four levels. We stayed in the top apartment for 240 euros for two nights. The apartment accommodated six people in a double room and in two rooms with double bunk beds. It's not exactly five star with servants waving palm fronds, but it is really comfortable and spacious (and they called ours the "small" apartment).

There is free wifi internet and you have access to all the hotel facilities like laundry, computer with internet and pool table.

From Lauterbrunnen you have a range of excursions, including the famous lifts to the top of Jungfrau or Schilthorn. Grindelwald and Interlaken are down the road, but I recommend a 20 euro return trip to Murren, which gives you full view of the Jungfrau range (with Eiger and Munch), along with some cute hikes into the hillside above Murren, with wooden barns, cowbells and a friendly restaurant/cafe on the hillside.

The main hassle with the apartment is that it sits close to the Horner pub, which typically runs to about 2am, sometimes with dancing. This affects the double bedroom mostly, so either sleep heavily, pack earplugs or join the fun.

Definitely recommended as value for money in a top location.

If you don't want to spend too much money eating at one of the restaurants attached to the local hotels (Oberland etc) this is the place to go.
They do a BBQ for CHF 14.00 with as much salad as you can eat. It's good salad too.
It's a bit too dark inside but the staff and other customers are perfectly nice. There is no problem with taking babies and kids there and I some there.
There aren't many options for vegetarians.
The place could also do with a good clean and updating of the decor.
Avoid the cheeseburger which is a sad looking thing but the french fries are nice and you get a big portion. The staff don't expect a tip as it's a pub.
There aren't that many seats inside but more outside.
