It's not the first time we spent an evening there and it always turns out perfect. Their Italian food is really good and the wines are great. Service is pleasant and well trained; they all actually care which is highly appreciated. Their terrace is cosy as is their indoor dining. Prices are on the higher side: with a reasonable menu...

I have been visiting this hotel several times, and enjoyed it only once or twice. Here is why: - hotel has no lift but steep stairs, so if You come with heavy luggage it may be quite an exercise to reach 3rd or sometimes even 4th floor. The time when I was happy when the room was on 1st floor.... More

I liked this place. This is my 7th night here of 8 in the last two weeks and I cancelled another reservation to stay here the second week. The reasons I liked it were not so much the rooms I stayed in which were a bit small but mainly the friendliness and generosity of the staff both at the hotel... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your differentiated feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed in general your stay. What happened about the restaurant was a very bad communication internally. In general no guest can drink in the restaurant a bottle of wine he brought by himself for free so this is the rule and in general all employees know this.... More

I had a business dinner for two people earlier this week. I was not the first time I have been there; in total, I might have eaten at the Schawn 5 or 6 times.

The manager Rudy, and his warm and personal staff, provided me a great stay. I was here on business and I felt very much at home. The restaurant was a great surprise...to find such authentic Italian cuisine here in Horgen, Switzerland! I highly recommend this wonderful hotel and taverne.

A friend and I thought this place looked nice and ordered a carafe of the house white. It was not large, 500ml at most. I was shocked to be charged chf40, yes, 40 for a casual couple of glasses of wine on a patio. Even in expensive Switzerland I would have expected chf16-24. I spoke to the manager who told... More

We had the fantastic tasting menu for our dinner. The food, staff and service was exemplary. Attention to detail good. Lovely atmosphere. We will most definitely be going back sooner rather than later. A great gem of a find in Horgen.
