Well, what can I say. How can one improve on perfection. Elsie, you have a marvelous recipe for a well run guest house. It was 110% great to see you again after all these years and you have not changed one bit. Still the bubbling laughing personality. It was great to catch up again. We will definately be back again...

The guest house is superb and Kevin and Elsie are the perfect hosts. After many days traveling, being in Interlaken was a balm bath for the soul. Spacious and extremely comfortable rooms, with astonishing views over the lagoon and the wilderness national park. I could spot Fisher Eagles from the terrace, while looking at the amazing sunset.Kevin and Elsie made... More

We returned to Interlaken Guest House having had a wonderful stay there in 2011 (reference my review 26May2011). As before, everything was perfect on our recent 2 day stay and it's difficult to add to the superlatives in my and other guests reviews. The titles of its Trip Advisor reviews alone reflect the excellence of this Guest House which well... More

We stayed for two nights (not long enough!) midway on our journey along the garden route. Elsie and Keven - who cooked a breakfast to die for - were wonderful hosts and very helpful with dining suggestions and tips on what to see in and around the area. Our room (we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite) had fantastic views... More

Kevin and Elsie are wonderful hosts. They gave us the honeymoon suite (we were celebrating our 25th Weddding Anniversary) with a most wonderful view and they made us feel very special.
