We stayed at this hotel for the 17th time recently. Throughout the years it has maintained its excellent standards of hospitality, cleanliness and comfort. It is not the most modern of hotels but is all the better for that. We always take the half board option and the food is consistently excellent and, unlike many continental hotels, they are completely... More

How disappointing! We had a lovely holiday at the Seiler au Lac 25 years ago and were looking forward to returning for lunch today. What a let down. We waited over an hour for our food and finally had to go and find a waitress to ask what had happened. When it eventually arrived it was very average. I had... More

Located right next to lake Brienz it is very nice hotel. Hotel may not be offering many of the modern facilities but it has its old world charm which is difficult to find in many new hotels. Rooms are clean, well maintained and good sized. Overall very nice place to stay in serene environment.

We stayed at this excellent hotel for 10 nights and found it to be a great base for trips around the area. The room was comfortable and clean with new hand towels and face cloths every day. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly efficient staff. Their motto 'you arrive as guests and leave as friends' is certainly true.... More

It is worth paying for a lake view room as the hotel is on the shore of the Brienzersee and the views are lovely. The room was clean and comfortable with a shower above the bath (I prefer walk in showers, but there wasn't space). We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the various ferries arrive and depart. Wifi is... More

The hotel is located only a few feet from the shore of Lake Brienz. The views from the room were incredible, especially in the morning as the sun rose over the lake and reflected on the surface. Lakeside rooms have fairly large balconies with two chairs and a table. I could comfortably eat or work on a laptop outside at... More

The situation of this hotel is wonderful - it overlooks the lake and mountains and is in a quiet village. There is a free bus into Interlaken which runs every 30 minutes and there are further free buses that extend out of Interlaken to e.g. Unterseen & Wilderswill.
