We stayed at the River Lodge for 2 nights on a recent trip to Switzerland and were incredibly disappointed with our stay. Having read other reviews on Trip Advisor we were expecting it to be basic, but the reality is so much worse than that. The "rooms" are really just boxes made of plywood; there is no privacy, no insulation and no comfort to be had anywhere here. The shared bathroom and kitchem facilities are old, dirty and poorly maintained. This is not a camping ground with a few rooms available, it is an old, dirty caming ground with some cheap, nasty rooms for rent. We paid 100CHF per night and felt thoroughly ripped off. As stated by a previous reviewer: this SHOULD NOT come up on Trip Advisor under "Hotels" - it's NOT a hotel, just a disappointment.
