We have been at Fritz & Gabi's Chalet Gafri two times (once in the spring and then came back to see what their fall was about, upon Fritz's recommendation). ONLY the most complimentary remarks can be made about this BnB. Fritz is the consummate host. Having lived in the area his entire lifetime - he has very viable recommendations for one to go and visit - hiking spots - visiting the waterfalls - traveling further up into the alps - etc. He serves a wonderful breakfast - must have his cheese (YES, it is his very own - from his very own cow)! His Muesli is the best I have ever had. The breads are freshly baked by Gabi - and are ALWAYS delicious. You will not go wrong staying here!

We arrived in Wilderswil near the end of a three week touring holiday with no accommodation booked. A local hotel had nothing suitable but the receptionist recommended Chalet Gafri and contacted the owners Fritz & Gabi for us. Having found the chalet in a quiet location away from the main road, we were warmly greeted by Fritz & Gabi. We were offered a choice of room and had no hesitation in staying. We found the owners very friendly and knowledgable about the area and Fritz pointed out the free local bus & train facility of the guestcard. We made full use of this over our three night stay. The breakfast facilities were excellent and advice about local attractions was very good. There is a laundry room available to guests for a small charge with tumble dryer etc. We had stayed in a variety of hotels, B & B and also a self-catering apartment in Germany and Austria before arriving at Chalet Gafri and think it was a highlight of the holiday. We wish we had been able to stay longer and would certainly return one day. 10 out of 10 !

Very clean and comfortable room which would beat many 3 star hotels. Breakfast was very good and our host Fritz was available during breakfast for local knowledge and weather forecasting, which was spot on. Fritz and Gabi were wonderful hosts and could not do enough for us. A top class BnB/hotel. Also, Wilderswil is a lovely location close to Interlaken and with fabulous integrated transport and the Jungfrau/Bernese Oberland area is unbelievably spectacular.

Room Tip: Best to stay on first floor for the best views. Also the ground floor rooms do not have a totally p...

We were not a fun of BnB type of accommodation but decided to book one to enrich our Swiss experience while we had our road trip around the Alps. It turned to be just perfect and totally changed our views toward BnB.

The room was extremely clean and stylish. The host Gabby and Fritz were so helpful and friendly- they offered extremely honest and helpful advice for our sightseeing . The breakfast they prepared for us were just delicious- nothing fancy but the quality is better than most of the 4/5 star hotels. Their kitchen was open like 24 hours it's such a plus for families as you can grab a coffee or tea or even use the microwave to heat up things for the children. Not to mention the extremely beautiful and peaceful village it's located. We were so happy we did not choose to stay in the bigger names like Interlaken or even Lauterbrunnen.

We wish we stayed there longer and strongly recommend this little gem.

Room Tip: get the newly built rooms they are gorgeous!

The hospitality of the owner is outstanding. We were offered a very nice and clean room for very reasonable price. The owner picked us up from the train station and helped us with our luggage to the train station when we were leaving. The breakfast was excellent. Fritz gave us a guest card for a free bus ride when we mentioned that we would like to see the Oberhofen Castle on Lake Thun. He gave us many other valuable advices which saved us a lot of time, money and effort. I would definitely very much recommend this welcoming place.

We had stayed in Wilderswil before at two different hotels so knew all the good things that the village has to offer, not least the excellent transport links. We loved our stay at Chalet Gafri; Fritz and Gabi were welcoming and attentive hosts. Our room was clean and spotless with television and internet and a comfortable seating area and good bathroom. Breakfast was excellent, including homemade muesli and jam. Drinks were available during the day and we were also offered washing facilities and the use of a fridge. The views from the breakfast table were unbeatable.

Room Tip: views from the new chalet are best but we liked our very 'Swiss' room in the old chalet.

Thank you very much for this very good review. We are pleased that you recommend us to other People. Just one Little remark about the Translation of trip-advisor into german language. We do not know why, but instead of Interlaken-Wilderswil in the german Version it mentioned Adelboden and this is a mistake. We hope very much that trip-advisor will Change this in the Translation as it is not the only time that this happened. Also it translates the word Chalet into Hütte, also wrong!
This is just to make sure that other guests do not get false informations.
