We spent two nights here. What an excellent find. Of course it was not perfect as it’s very old, but really really worth visiting if you want to get away from the Interlaken tourist madness. The pianist playing soft tunes at breakfast was a nice...More
Had it not been for actions of staff that utterly ruined our last night, the Giessbach would only have been marked down a star or two for its shabby-chic (well, shabby, frankly, but in a charming way) decor, and a heating system that's centrally controlled...More

I do not think lunch is four course, like I know dinner is. There are burgers and lots of great things on the menu for lunch.
