Reviewed November 14, 2007

My wife booked our holiday over the internet and we stayed for 8 nights which qualified for the free night accommodation. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. On the reccommendation of a trip advisor subscriber we tried to book a particular room which was
unavailable. We were offered a free upgrade same floor similar view of the lake and mountains which we obviously took. The room was entirely adequate for us though I could imagine American visitors calling it "cosy and compact". It was in fact an American couple who reccommended the hotel to us. We took the half board option with a set menu for the evening meal,we are not a dining out couple. We were not disappointed the menu during our stay was varied, interesting and well presented. On arrival we were given a visitors bus pass which is convenient and offers a considerable saving. There are 2 local buses an hour to Interlaken which is a 15 min journey max. The ferry stop is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We do not normally return to hotels we have previously stayed in but we would definitely make the Seehotel our base if we returned to the Interlaken area. Our thanks to the family Hohermuth for their kindness and consideration during our stay.

We have just returned from the Seehotel La Terrasse, after an excellent week. The hotel's situation is right on the lake with lovely views across the front. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. We booked a room at the back as we thought it might be quieter for our young son at night, but there was hardly any noise at all. The rooms at the back overlook chalets and a caravan park, but there is also a fine view of the mountains. The balconies were large enough to stretch out on, and even had a fold away washing line. To travel to Bonigen you need to take a number 3 bus. If the destination is Bonigen See, then you need to get off opposite the lake, but if the destination is Istalwald then there is a bus stop further along, almost opposite the hotel. Unfortunately our travel company didn't tell us this, so we had a bit of a job to sort out what we were doing when we arrived in Interlaken.

All the public rooms are bright and airy. The dining room is very pleasant. and all the staff were very friendly, even stopping and speaking when we met a couple of them in town on their day off. They made a great fuss of our young son at mealtime, and gave him crayons, books and other activities to keep him occupied, as well as Heinz Tomato Ketchup for his chips! The chef will make you a fondue if you give a couple of days notice, even though it is not on the restaurant menu. This is eaten in a small separate room away from the main diners. On friday nights the local folk group host a half hour of swiss music and dancing by the boat quay, almost opposite the hotel. We enjoyed a male voice choir, a dance group and an alpenhorn group, all for a small donation.

I would really recommend this hotel, apparently Crystal and Thomson are going to give it more prominence in their brochures next year as it is so good - I don't blame them.

We experienced our first holiday in Switzerland from the 4th August to 11th August 2007, and we stayed at Seehotel Le Terrasse in Bonigen which overlooked Lake Brienz.
The holiday was absolutely amazing and we visited Jungfraujoch, Rothorn, Schilthorn, Schynige Platte and many of the villages in the Bernese Oberland.
The Seehotel Le Terrasse was a very friendly hotel, where eveyone was very helpful and made you feel part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

On arrival at the hotel, we had a great start to our holiday, as we were told that we were having a free upgrade to a superior room. the room was on the second floor and had a wonderful view of the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts and evening meals and would recommend this hotel. We liked it so much we have booked this hotel next year for two weeks instead of the one week we have just had.

We wish the Hotel and its staff every success for the future as it is well deserving. Can't wait until next year to arrive.

Stayed here for a week at the end of June 2007. Booked the room on the hotel's website and got a great deal (7 nights for the price of 6). The hotel is situated in a village about 10 mins by bus from Interlaken - or you can walk the distance in about 45 minutes. Hotel gives you a free visitors card which gives you free travel on the local bus and discounts on some attractions.

Found the hotel to be clean and comfortable and the owners were friendly. Only booked bed and breakfast, so cannot comment on the evening meals - we ate in Interlaken most of the time. Breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, juice, cereal, croissants, bread rolls, cheese, various cooked meat selection, boiled eggs, jams and fresh fruit. They served breakfast until 10am - which we found very useful especially if you aren't an early riser!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying in the Interlaken area, the village of Bonigen is quiet and the hotel looks out onto Lake Brienz. The bus stop is around 200 yards away and the boat landing about 500 yards away. Very convenient for getting around. I would definitely stay here again.
