Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were on a Shearings tour and recently stayed in Hotel Kreuz, the views from our balcony were beautiful. The staff were very friendly and the food was lovely. The farmers buffet which we had on the Friday night was splendid there was so much food and it was all well prepared. The entertainment by local musicians was excellent.
Thank you Hans and your team for making us all so welcome and taking such good care of us.

Beautiful view of the lake from our room. Rooms were basic but reasonable. Staff were very friendly. Great view from the restaurant and a nice breakfast.

Its a reasonable place at a reasonable price to stay for the night if you have a car and are on the way out of Interlaken or Grundewald.

Importantly it has good sized family rooms - which can be hard to get in Europe. Our room had five beds.

We stayed at the hotel in June 12. It was an excellent experience. The view from the balcony of our room was breathtaking. We wanted to extend our holiday there but unfortunately couldn't cancel the other booking in Lucerne. The breakfast was good with many hot options. The hotel owner Hans was very friendly. Our Euro adapter did not work, so he happily provided an adapter. My son had slipped and had bruises. Hans was very kind to give him first aid.
Its about 10 min train ride from interlaken.
Overall loved the experience. Would highly recommend it for family.

We recently stayed in Hotel Kruez, we were originally a little sceptical as the hotel had only a few reviews on Tripadvisor, but as we were rather late in making the reservations for a long weekend in Switzerland, it was difficult finding alternatives, we decided to take the risk. But it was definitely well worth as it turned out to be a great experience.

Although the hotel was not far from the Leissigen train station, the hotel also provided complimentary transfer from Interlaken which made it even more convenient for us (less than 10min ride).

The hotel indeed has a stunning view of Lake Thun, with easy access to the lake. Our rooms had a direct, unobstructed lake view. The room felt a little dated but was cosy and spotless. All the amenties were well-maintained and in good condition.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and we were not disappointed, the food was good and also a great view of lake Thun.

Most of all, the service, welcoming, friendly and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel as an alternative to the more touristy and crowded Interlaken area, but still by the lake.

Room Tip: Go for the lake view even though it is by the road and could be noisier, there were not too many car...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Kreuz on our recent trip to Switzerland, with Shearings. The hotel is in a perfect location overlooking lake Thun. We were originally given a room in the newer part and although everything was clean, modern and quiet, the room itself was really quite small and overlooked the car park. When I mentioned that we were a little disappointed with the room to the staff, the following morning at breakfast, we were almost immediately offered a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. Although their was some traffic/train noise and the room was more dated, the size of the room and the view from the balcony made up for any disturbance or dated decor. We found the staff extremely friendly and accommodating and the food was really good, plentiful and varied both for breakfast and the evening meal. We would definately stay at this hotel again, should we return to Switzerland.

Room Tip: Rooms in the newer part are smaller, but quieter. Rooms overlooking lakeThun in the older part, wit...

We first stayed at Hotel Kruez in 1985; and when our travels again took us to Switzerland in 2010, we made it a priority to stay in Leissigen. Little has changed in those 25 years, the hotel staff is still very friendly, the dining room excellent for a special evening dinner, the view of Lake Thun lovely, and the town of Leissigen Swiss perfect.While the hotel does not sit on the lake, it does have easily accessed lakeside property which has a great view and comfortable surroundings to enjoy the tranquility of Lake Thun. That said the rooms are Spartan but adequate and the view of the lake from the front facing rooms is lovely, but beware that the traffic on the road between the hotel and lake supplemented by occasional passenger trains which run next to the road can somewhat offset the serenity of the location. Still, it was a great reunion after so many years, and we thoroughly enjoyed our nostalgic visit to this beautiful part of Switzerland.

Room Tip: The lakeside rooms have a terrific view of Lake Thun although they can be somewhat noisy due to the...

We spent two nights here. The staff are very friendly and went out of their way to help us. We stayed in room 108 which has a view of the car park and is noisey from the automatic door. I booked this hotel through hotels.com and am finding that when using this booking service you generally get the worst room available. I would stay in this hotel again but I would book direct int he hope of getting a better room.
