My wife and I visited the hotel for the weekend. It is a lovely historical hotel on the lake right by the pier and Rigi Bahn, however it is still quiet. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The owners and staff are very friendly and make you feel right at home. The food is excellent (no convenience food) all fresh,... More

Beautiful old rooms with gorgeous antique furniture, helpful and friendly staff (excellent service in the restaurant). Highly recommend the trip up to the mountain spa in coordination with a stay here.

It started during dinner..almost every waiter that brought us drinks or food was quite clumsy, forgot who ordered what, ... When we got the bill we had to make corrections because it wasn't right.Before... More

We loved it here. Our waiter was awesome and funny (blond guy). He ran his feet of to serve all the outside tables! And the food was excellent. Look forward to a future visit here. I had the schnitzel with a Swiss cola :). Recommend to come here after your trip up Mt. Riggi with the cog wheel.

The guest lounges were wonderful, old style family country house with historic furniture. Good food in a great dining room with fabulous views.

The location of the restaurant is great: right next to where you arrive by boat and cross the street to get to the Rigi-Bahn, there it is: the restaurant "Terrasse am See", where you can eat outside, below the trees. So the location, the play to enjoy a nice sunny summer-day is wonderful. The prices for the food however, they... More

This small hotel is located right on the lake. The famous white tourist boats stop in front and the famous old Rigi Bahn station is just next. Great views, cosy rooms. The hotel is member of the Swiss Historic Hotels and therefore, expect a touch of nostalgic effects. Friendly staff and owners. Only had breakfast which was OK but is... More
