“OK for a stopover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2006

We stayed at the Bellevue for one night in August. It is fine for a stop-over en route to somewhere else, but would be a bit dull for anything longer than a night. There is a problem with road noise at the back of the hotel, where we were originally accommodated, but the hotel was quick to move us to the front (for a higher tariff!), where the views of Lake Thunersee are spectacular. The breakfast was fine. The hotel decor is functional at best.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2004

We needed an inexpensive room at the last minute and just chose Bellevue au Lac out of a book. We were amazed when we saw the hotel and saw our room. The hotel is beautiful -- right on Lake Thun, with a view of the Alps and a gorgeous garden. Our room was large, airy, spotless and, best of all, had a large balcony with this amazing view. The restaurant and breakfast room do too. This is the ideal place for a lakes and mountains vacation.

We were there in May 2004 for a night. Good location right on the lakefront. We were put in a newly renovated room which was beautiful, however, the bathroom was average. Nice comforters and pillows. The safe didn't work and they tried to fix it. They are in the process of installing central A/C which you'll want because it was warm so we opened the windows. But the street traffic is very loud, which can make for a long night. Helpful staff who made dinner recommendation and reserved a table for us. Breakfast could have been better. Overall a positive experience. But we could have done better. Pricey.
