My husband, 2 daughters and I had the pleasure of staying in the apartment at Chalet Fontana during our recent 10-day holiday in Switzerland. I had visited Murren before in 2010 with my younger daughter and loved it so much that I wanted to re-visit it during our recent trip. As there were four of us this time we chose to stay at the apartment in Chalet Fontana after reading the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor.
Well, it certainly was the perfect choice and Denise was the perfect hostess! We loved the cosy self-contained apartment and Denise was very friendly and helpful in every way. We also enjoyed getting to know the other guests at breakfast and after breakfast Denise would give very good advice on what to do and where to go. There was a Co-Op store opposite the apartment where we bought our provisions at very reasonable prices. We did not plan to cook initially but since the kitchen was so well-equipped and my girls wanted to do the cooking, we ended up cooking dinner for the 2 nights we were in Chalet Fontana. There's also a souvenir shop next to Chalet Fontana which stocks quite a good range of nice souvenirs.
The evening we arrived, it started to snow! All of us were so excited as it was an unexpected bonus! (we live in a tropical country) It was nice and warm in the apartment and it was so relaxing to watch the snow slowly cover the ground and the trees and buildings in Murren. It was still snowing quite heavily the morning we left Murren so it was a bit challenging walking to the train station with our luggage, otherwise Chalet Fontana is just a 10 minute walk from the train station and a little less to the cable car station.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay at Chalet Fontana and everyone agreed that it was the highlight of our Swiss holiday! Thank you very much Denise for your warm hospitality. We hope we can be back some day!!

I can only second all the 5star reviews - Denise is amazing and Chalet Fontana is such a charming b&b.

If you are traveling to bernese oberland, I have two recommendations: 1) stay with Denise at Chalet Fontana and 2) stay as long as possible. Seriously. Murren is not a place you will be ready to leave when your time is up. I am already looking forward to my return trip!

We had an absolutely perfect time staying at the Chalet Fontana. We stayed for three nights, one in a normal room and two in the apartment (the apartment was already reserved the first night). Both were fantastic. The rooms were clean and Denise (the owner) was very helpful. Each morning we had breakfast with other tenants and discussed our plans. Denise always had helpful tips about what was open or what trails were looking good for the season. Also, the breakfast was great!

Renting the apartment with the kitchen made our trip much more enjoyable as well. We love cooking and it was nice to have a meal at home instead of going out for a meal or two. The ceilings are a little low, but then, I'm 6'4", so I'm used to it.

Stay at this place. Seriously, it is the best.

Room Tip: Ask for the apartment. It is well worth the money.

We stayed 5 nights at Chalet Fontana in Murren in the last week of May. We stayed in the apartment. It is large and spacious and ensured that as a family of four we dint fall over/walk over each other! The views from the front bedroom are great. The back bedroom tended to get cold; maybe a heating issue. The breakfasts were generous and filling. Denise gave us good advice regarding excursions in the region and places to eat out at. The Coop is right across the road and on the nights that we cooked in, the kitchen was lovely to use. Ovreall a very enjoyable stay and good value for money in expensive Switzerland!!

Room Tip: For a family of four the apartment is spacious and comfortable. The bedroom at the back however did tend to get cold. Maybe some issue with the heating.

First of all, Denise is a wonderful host and is extremely helpful with suggestions on things to do - we did not even feel the need to visit the Tourist Information center. The breakfast deserves a special mention too. We stayed in the apartment which has a great view of the mountains and all the amenities. It has a well equipped kitchen with plenty of utensils. The bedroom was spacious with a nice collection of books. Also the apartment was spotlessly clean. Overall, it's a great value for money place.
