Reviewed August 4, 2011

Recent reviews have said it all, so it is difficult to add anything further! This is an excellent boutique hotel and restaurant with an award winning owner/head chef. If you plan to stay, book a half-board package to take advantage of the fantastic food. Our room on the top floor had windows on two sides with great views of the surrounding mountains. The breakfast was the ideal combination of buffet for the cold items, but cooked to order for the main dish. There is no mini-bar, but a very well stocked bar alongside the restaurant.
There are games and books in the lounge, but a bookcase in the entrance contains books for sale, rather than to borrow.
Would like to return, if only the exchange rate would improve!

Switzerland is horrendously expensive, but the Hotel Victoria provided really good value through its weekly terms for half board, which we booked through New Experience Holidays in the UK. And what amazing half board. Every night we enjoyed a four course meal - with three choices of main course - in a modern fusion cuisine combining the best of European and Asian inspired dishes. The first night brought an additional special starter and a welcome glass of prosecco. The restaurant is popular with locals, but even during busy times your table is yours for the evening and the service can be as fast or slow as you like. Breakfasts were also amazing, with an extensive buffet and a hot choice of eggs/bacon or pancakes. The owners and staff were really welcoming and helpful. Previous reviewers commented on the bedroom size, and while the rooms are compact, they are clean and bright and ours allowed us to lie in bed and see the mountains. The showers are excellent. Meiringen itself is a great base for walking and from the hotel you can see the yellow post buses lining up in the morning, ready to take people up the valleys for walks such as those described in the excellent Rother Guide. The station, just outside the hotel, has a half hourly service along Lake Brienz to Interlaken and an hourly service up the hill to Brunig where other buses connect with every train. Not every day in Switzerland is dry and sunny: and on the days it rained really hard we did not feel trapped in our rooms because there is a good hotel lounge with books, games, magazines and fruit - along with a modern cuckoo clock which provides hourly entertainment for younger guests.

Family Anderegg runs their hotel with extraordinary enthusiasm and passion. Very modern and tastelful rooms. A lot of nice guest, most of them regular guests.
I think the best restaurant between Thun and Lucerne, a perfect mixture of light, modern cusine with asian flavour!

We stayed here and had a lovely time at this hotel. The rooms are very clean and tidy with a TV, safe and hair drier. It is in a very good location in the town and just 5 minutes walk from the train and bus stations. The food both at breakfast and dinner was of a very good standard. We had a problem with our luggage not arriving as it was supposed to do and the hotel owner went out of his way to sort the problem and went and personally got it for us.

Really super stay in this stylish place that serves the best meals we had in our stay in Switzerland. Friendly, efficient owner and staff. A very short walk from the railway station, lifts and buses - an excellent base for the Thun and Birenze lakes.

What a find the Hotel Victoria was. We only stopped in Meiringen as it is where Sherlock Holmes, my namesake, met Moriarty and fought to the death at the Reichenbach Falls.
A great welcome to a 'boutiquee' clean bright modern hotel in the centre of town with an outstanding restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was superb and the menu Gastronomy recommended. Well worth a visit if you love to be close to the lakes, the mountains and all things Swiss, plus a restaurant that puts some Michelin Stars to shame, all at a sensible price! The young couple, which includes the Chef, that run the place deserve your support!
