We stayed at this hotel for two nights - whilst the town of Stansstad was very quiet the hotel was excellent with fantastic views of the lake. The rooms are first class with all the comforts one expects but doesn't alway get. The food and dining outside or inside was run to a high standard and made your stay very... More

Our daughter arranged this party for us. Winkelried did a terrific job in the preparation with suggesting menus and decorations. Service for our 28 people was outstanding, so was the food. The original plan was to be outside near the water. Weather changed and the restaurant moved everything inside. We had a great party The hotel and restaurant is in... More

Good service and good location right by the lake, though town is a little bit off the beaten track. Fair price for rooms and facilities. Food was good and the rooms and bathrooms ok. Weather was not great during the stay so probably did not see best of lakeside location.

Went there with 2 friends. Waited 10min to get seated, another 10min to receive the menu, then another 15min to give the order. Ordered one pizza to go in the middle and three types of pasta. Pizza came very fast and was delicious. Pasta came upon three reminders only 30min later and was terrible, tasteless, cold, looking as if it's... More

This place is one of the best kept secrets. We visited during May 2015. What a lovely property overlooking the mountains as well as the Vierwaldstättersee lake. The pizza at it's restaurant near the watch tower is a delight. The rooms are beautiful with the balcony opening out to the mountain. Quaint little place Stansstad, with very good train connection...

I've had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on 3 different occasions, the latest in Apr 16. I am always very impressed with the speedy check-in and warm welcome I recieve. I've always had a room with a large balcony overlooking the idyllic Lake Lucerne and surrounding mountains. The view at dawn is magnificent!

Have stayed there twice thru March, second time for 6 nights. The rooms are comfortable but a little basic, be nice if tea/coffee was in the room rather than the lobby, but minor note. Staff are great, friendly and helpful. I personally like the food in the restaurants, good fresh produce, local fish, but it is on the expensive side,... More

In terms of price we got what, in Swiss terms, we paid for. Basic. It was a room with a shower and little else. Not even a kettle and the view from the alleged lakeview room impeded by the roof in front. This, however, emphasised the issues Switzerland has. It is not good value. While cheap by local standards (and... More

The Hotel Winkelried had a great location, right on the lake. The room was really nice, very clean. It seemed like it could use some upgrading, but was nice enough. The restaurant was good, a little spendy. The staff was awesome.
