Excellent venue in a pipsqeak village on the mountainside below Schilthorn. Not alot has changed in this small community for hundreds of years making it special. Easy to the cable car up to the Schilthorn for a breakfast in the revovling restaurant and mountainous scenery. Venue very comfortable and the owners very friendly. Highly recommend.

We stopped for coffee and hot chocolate on our walk from Murren to Gimmelwald and it was just before tie tram station. A nice place for a break. Note: the kitchen closes September 1, through the rest of the season. If you are on a hike, I suggest you eat in Murren.

We loved this place! We stayed at lots of big name hotels during our vacation last week but loved this place the most. Each night there was a great optional home made dinner (if you wanted to have dinner there), homemade soup and a main course! Nice couple with a lovely daughter in an authentic Swiss House in a lovely...

Stayed here summer 2011, my favorite hotel of my 2 months in Switzerland. Easy booking, friendly and personal service, I felt 100% safe here as a single female traveler. They were also able to accommodate my severe nut allergy. Fond memories of this place!

This is a very friendly and homelike place, run by a British/German couple. The dining room features a couple of couches, comfortable spots to have a beer and discuss the day's hiking. Owner Dave loves to swap travel stories, his wee daughter plays happily and a couple of cats roam the grounds. Rooms are comfortable and spotless, with everything you...

Easy and laid back way to explore this side of the region. Great views and wonderful owner! 3 minute walk to cable car. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. Walls are thin but most of the people there are families and people just looking to sleep once they get in their room. Food and beverage served here, decent prices for...

I'd always wanted to experience living in a Swiss chalet-this one was so quaint-over a hundred years old, half lace curtains, window boxes full of flowers, beautiful mountain views, red traffic-worn rugs, old wooden carved furniture, low ceilings and very squeaky floors....We had a large 3- bed room up stairs for 4 nights in the middle of summer. Sabine, always...
