“Overall a good quality hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean. Although the rooms with a lake view are a bit noisy due to passing trains (up to per 6 hour), the panorama of lake and mountains is marvelous.
Breakfast and dinner are of good quality.
The design of the hotel/rooms is (a bit) outdated, it feels like going back to the 70 or 80 –ties.
Wifi not available in the rooms.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are more quiet. Trainstation is 2 minutes away

Went with Shearings for a break in Switzerland, hotel staff very friendly and willing to do what was necessary to give you a good time. Room (106) overlooked front of hotel, which is not the lake view, but no problem dining room overlooked the lake, sun rising in the morning over mountains covered in snow, lights glistening on the water at night. Food all edible, my husband had seconds every night, breakfast was self service, always a good choice, yogurt, fruit, cheese, ham, breads, rolls, sausages, scrambled egg, what's not to like! Holiday from Shearings was made all the better by the dedication to a good time of our drivers Chris and Tony, they tried hard to make the week more than could be expected from the brochure.

Room Tip: Room 106 had bath with shower.

We stayed in this hotel on a Shearings tour 10/2/13 for 6 nights. The hotel is very dated and basic. The staff are friendly. The toilet picture above is no joke. There are 2 superior rooms, those are in photos hotel shows. Worst of all was the food. Yes the buffet was great but the other 5 nights were a Swiss tradgedy. A simple (Very simple) 3 course meal for 50 took 2 hours to serve every night. Tuesday was lamb stew or vegetarian. I got 3 pieces of meat and it was mutton that hadn@t been cooked long enough. We bought food from the local supermarket to eat after our dinner. There is no bar as we know it so no real social area. If this is Shearings idea of a good hotel then our first Shearings trip is our last.
BTW, I'm a chef of over 40 years, worked up to 4 star hotels. I know what I'm talking about.

Room Tip: Pay the £100 ish extra for a superior room, but still expect to buy food at night, unless your idea...

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...
