My husband and I arrived with our 16-year-old grandson to find that we had been upgraded not only to a lake view room, but also to Swiss Suite, with a huge terrace overlooking the lake. Needless to say, we were delighted! Ariste, one of the two brother proprietors, then proceeded to personally show us our room and all of the... More

We stayed in a roomy suite for a couple nights with a beautiful view of the lake. The location is central and you can step right out your door into the medieval town for shopping and restaurants. There is a Co-op store a 2 minute walk where you can buy water and supplies at normal non-tourist pricing. Also an easy... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback on Tripadvisor. It's always a good tool to inform other and future clients about our facility's, rooms and cleaning management. And of course to make our services better. 1) Our hotel is near the lake, so in summertime 1 hour before and 1 hour after sunset is not good to open... More

I loved my stay in Murten and at this hotel! I wanted to stay in the older rooms section of the hotel and was very pleased (and surprised) with my room as it had a balcony overlooking the lake. The room felt like one that you see on tours of castles, but had a modern bath! It also had a... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor, which is really helpful to approve our services. In your case, the minibar (non-use) was a down side experience. This was surely a fault on our side, if you are sure not to have used minibar thats fine :-) Most of clients, unfortunately, do not mention their consumption and leave without... More

On a recent, quick trip to Switzerland, (made even quicker by our flights over getting cancelled, delaying our trip by one day!), we had the good fortune to stay at the Hotel Murtenhof & Krone in Murten, Switzerland. It is an amazing hotel in the heart of Murten, just a short 10 minute walk, (but mostly uphill!) from the Train... More

The terrace restaurant has fantastic unobstructed views of the lake. The meals are only slightly more expensive than other restaurants in town but quality is much higher. The steak I had here - although on the small side- is probably one of the best steaks I have had. Nice friendly efficient service with a superb view. Totally recommend.

We very much enjoyed our recent stay at this gem of a hotel and dinner in the restaurant. The location is superb, just inside the historical area of charming Murten. The front desk personnel were all exceptional and helpful. Loved the adjoining room off the lobby where you could make coffee or tea during the day. Our room was perfectly... More

We stayed two nights at this fine hotel in Murten. Had a nice size room in the old city with a great view of the lake. Convenient location within minutes of the train station. Very good breakfast with lots of variety. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Never having been to the area I was excited as I drove into the arch through the old city wall. The old town area takes you back in time and I was further excited when I got into my room, opened the doors to the outside and looked down upon Lake Murten. The hotel is not high end but doesn't...
