This is an old property which, in typical Swiss tradition, has been well maintained. However, rooms are dark and beds are very dated. The bathrooms have been modernised. Rooms not facing the lake, are noisy (parking area, and street). Reception is very friendly and multilingual. Upon arrival, my room had major ceiling leaks and the reception moved me to an adjacent room. We occupied 3 rooms (265, 265 and 152) and none of us slept well (as mentioned, the noise and all rooms are far too warm due to the underfloor heating which cannot be switched off). Breakfast has to be taken in the restaurant across the street - the breakfast is plentiful but the breakfast room is too small to accommodate all guests. We had dinner on the evening of arrival and found the food of good quality however very expensive (even for Switzerland). Parking is free. Wifi is free but the reception in the rooms is mediocre. On balance, we cannot recommend this hotel.

Low ceilings, a lot of wood and creaky beams are an experience which you otherwise find in the lofty heights of the mountains. We offer you free parking spaces at the large parking area on the opposite side of the street. The restaurant and bar are located in the same building. There we serve as well the breakfast from 06.30 – 10.00 o’clock. Check-in & Check out will be in the Schloss-Hotel which is in the street: Chappelmattweg 4, 6402 Merlischachen ... more less
