“Ideal Location, Fantastic service”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

I have been coming to Hotel du Lac for the last 25 years or so. The rooms are all unique and very comfortable. The breakfast is great. The location is very convenient, close to the rail-road station and overlooking either the river or the Jungfrau.
Ernst and Barbara are excellent hosts and the hotel has been in their family for generations. They make you feel at home and very knowledgable about where to go.

The hotel is not 5 stars, but it is still very nice, clean, cozy. Great Value!

The hotel has been run by the same family for the last 4 generations,All the staff are very helpful and friendly ,with good attention to detail, eg remembering our names.The hotel is between the railway station and the river, so very convenient for transport if you do not have a car.The centre of Interlaken is about 10 mins walk away. Our room was of good size with a small balcony,and a view across the railway station to the mountains beyond, and also the river.The room and hotel were kept very clean.Beds and pillows comfortable..Attractive modern dining room with view of river.Daily evening meal was excellent,and we converted to half board, which was very good value - Interlaken is not a cheap place to find good food. Only drawback is proximity to railway station means that there is noise from trains,which start at about 6.00am, but we quickly got used to them.Next time we visit the area we will certainly stay at the hotel again

Room Tip: Upper floor with balcony and mountain view

This hotel is dated and could do with some refurbishment but the location is ideal and the service is excellent. Parking is easy and the railway station is across the road though no train noise disturbed our sleep. The room we had looked out over the river and had a balcony. The in-house restaurant provided good value meals with fantastic service. Bicycles are available for guests. This hotel is not in the centre of town which has its advantages because the town has a casino and it could be noisy late at night in the centre.

This hotel is a find- and a huge surprise at the cost! Exceeded expectations as this was one of our Switzerland hotels that we chose as a lesser price but ended up being the best value and expereince. Ask for Sabrina...receptionist and advisor/concierge- super helpful and makes you feel like you belong there as a family member. The owner is warm and welcoming and his wife provides beautiful floral arrangements that are prominenet as you enter the building and through-out. The hotel is vintage (1950's?) and is kept up beautifully! The whole staff was very accommodating and kind. The restaurant was exceptional with a staff to please. I highly recommend Hotel Du Lac.

We spent 3 nights at the Hotel du Lac out of a 12 night vacation and this was our favorite hotel. It is located right across from the train station and at the east end of town which was a very convenient location. The noise of the station didn't bother us at all. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and the room was very nice. The best part was the dining room - we ate dinner there all 3 nights and the food and service were just outstanding. We had to leave very early our last morning and they packed us a wonderful "to-go" breakfast. We would highly recommend this hotel.

The greeting when we arrived was just great!!!! The staff is most amazing. They all speak very good English and are most helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. It is about a 15 min. walk to the towns center but well worth it. They give you a pass for free transportation within Interlaken. The transportation system in Switzerland is unbelievable. If you are looking for a vacation this is the place to go.
