“Revisit after 55yrs”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Whilst holidaying in Switzerland,staying at Wengen with my husband and two of our friends, we decided to get off the train at Wildersvil and visit the Steinbock Hotel where I had stayed during a school trip aged 14 years.
We tried the front door only to find it was closed but within minutes the present owner unlocked the door and invited us in and allowed us to purchase a drink each.He was very pleasant and stayed to talk to us telling us he had only been there since February and had renovated the place. My friend then told him how I had stayed there as a school girl. He asked if it looked very different and I said I thought it was much improved. He was really nice and very interested and invited all four of us on a tour of the rooms after we had finished our drinks. The rooms where lovely and we complimented him on his good taste. He has managed to combine the old and the new perfectly.In fact I would have loved to have been staying at the Steinboch.We could not see anything to find fault with. The location is really good,set beside a frothing river and it is so central to everywhere with an excellent train system at the centre of the village.Interlaken, Lauterbrunan, Wengen,Murren, the Jungfrau and Schiltorn and more all within easy reach .
Although we did not eat or stay at this hotel I would be very happy and confident in recommending it to anyone and as I said previously would love to stay there if I visit Switzerland again.
Please take note of date of previous reviews and note the present owners have only been in business here since February .

We stayed as a honeymoon couple in June 12 in this hotel and we can very honestly say that this hotel is a gem to stay. Just 200 - 300 mtrs away from wilderswil station, this hotel has new owners and nicely done rooms. With a river stream flowing just next to the hotel it makes a perfect picturesque location for the hotel. The breakfast was simple but always timely and well served. Being a honeymoon couple we got one of the best rooms with a balcony and enjoyed an excellent views from there. The hotel served us a welcome cocktail drink though we were the last clients of the day to check in (almost at 10:45 pm). The hotel is a traditional swiss place and hence no lifts in the hotel but the staircase were fast and easy (though it can be a problem for people with lots of luggage). The access to Interlaken OST main is very easy and train can reach there in 4 - 5 mins. We are very happy to find the hotel and would definitely return to the place when we plan again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony as not all rooms have it.

We have always stayed in grindelwald but decided to try somewhere else. The owners who are new have made the place really warm and welcoming. The rooms are modern but still feel "Swiss " the setting is lovely with the river passing by and it being very peaceful. The breakfast in the morning simple but lovely continental with really good croissants. The place comes into its own for dinner with a steakhouse that is fabulous great food cooked to an exceptional quality and with a creativity and seasonal produce the specials of the day are great. Some really good wines and a warm ambience makes this a winner !

The place has been recently renovated and their rooms are nicely done up. The location is beautiful---far prettier than the pictures posted here. You might even get to hear the stream flowing at night. A short walk from the train station(wilderswil) and about 10mins from Interlaken main. Ideally location. Staff are friendly

Here you can find peace and sleep with the help of the river. Not so nice room but a balcony overlooking the small town. You can go up to Jungfraujoch or visit Luzern or Thun or Interlaken or Bern or Thunersee etc. If you are not a person that wants a lot of facilities and want a descent price in Switzerland this is one of the hotels that suits you.

Stayed at this gasthaus whilst skiing at Grindelwald, Wengen and Murren. It's in a lovely location and very handy for the train that runs between Interlaken and Grindelwald/Lauterbrunnen. The hotel was being renovated however we were not affected by this at all. The new owners were very friendly and helpful and a glitch with the heating in our room was resolved very quickly. Breakfast was good.

This Gasthaus is located in a small village about a 5 minute drive from Interlaken.
It's location is quite charming. You drive over a covered bridge, (river) and then come immediately upon a quaint church & cemetary. Right next door is the Gasthaus. There is some parking right behind the Gasthaus and also a few spots in front right off the road. The people that helped us spoke very good English.The rooms we rented were large and airy. One of them had a large balcony where you could sit and enjoy view the river but there is also a quite busy small road in front of it. The bathroom had a huge bathtub but the lighting was poor. The beds were comfortable however the linens didn't seem very clean and the pillows were very old and heavy. A hearty breakfast was served in a spacious dining room and much attention was given to neatness. There were a lot of seating options so this area lended itself to some privateness. If church bells bother you you may want to think twice about booking because the church bell rings frequently. This is a great location for outdoor activities in the Berner Overland.

Room Tip: River view is also street view, so a bit noisy.
