“An interesting corner of Switzerland”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

I arrived on the train from Rorschach and left on the bus to Sankt Gallen - both interesting experiences. This establishment merits "very good" because of the welcome and the exceptionally good breakfast selection.

They kindly gave me a double room for the price of a single because I am on the tall side. i did appreciate the extra space. The position is quiet, and Heiden is a somewhat dozy town in any case (at least it was when I stayed). After staying in a fair few Swiss hotels I have come to realise that the Swiss notions of "worn out" and "unfashionable" are quite different to the UK. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the Linde Genossenschaft. A fair few (hundred) feet had trod the carpet of my room before me, and the bathroom (although fully functional) would have been at the height of fashion at home forty years ago. However, everything was clean.

The old fashioned service extended to the breakfast, but this was a huge advantage. Good bread, good ham, local cheeses, home made jam and good coffee. What more could you ask?

If you want the kind of aseptic experience that you can get in a new Ibis, stay away. If you want a warm and comfortable welcome, give it a try.

PS - The pricing is unusually generous to people travelling on their own.
