We arrived by car on Christmas eve, and the friendly multilingual staff were extremely helpful in explaining the items included in our all inclusive plan. The Hotel is on a hill, with a splendid view of the town of Engleberg below, and of the Alps, a great view from all main windows. The rooms are compact, but very clean, modern, and simple. The tram is a few steps away,at the top of a steep hill, and allows quick access to the town, and the shuttle to the mountain by a 4 min bus ride (free). The main rooms are grand, with high celings, and a slightly faded glory, but still elegant with a view that can't be beat. The all inclusive plan had a buffet breakfast, with superb breads, croissants, rolls, eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt, lunch vouchers for the self serve restaurants at the ski mountain, afternoon snack, and a large buffet dinner, including at least three main course choice and a cheese buffet each evening, with a salad bar, and great desserts. Meals were always very tasty, and choices varied.House wine, beer, water and soda included. This is a terrific value, when you see the outrageously high prices in the local restaurants, and even in the 2 grocery stores in town. There is a Wellness center, with a sauna with room for only 10, and a steam room, great after a long day on the slopes. After dinner there is usually a show, in German. If this is not to your taste, bring along your own entertainment (cards, board games), or play Fussball, pool, or darts in the bar. Very "kid Friendly". Beds are very comfy, with soft down pillows, down comforters, and crisp cotton sheets.
The staff is always very helpful. Good value for money, especially with regards to the food, which is superb! The hotel shows its age, the furniture may be simple, but the staff, views, and value for Switzerland are appreciated.
