I don't use the word awesome very much. I'm too old. Still, when we opened our door and saw the view from our window, my mouth dropped open. My wife couldn't figure out how to react and just started laughing out loud. We had a room on the third floor facing the mountains. A double door and window give a view I will probably never see from a hotel room again.
We stayed for three nights in April, 2013. Our room was bright and sunny. Everything was clean and tidy. The bathroom was large with a full, deep tub which turned out to be a wonderful treat after a particularly cold evening walk. A heated towel bar made it easy to dry some things that needed to be hand washed.
There is a nice bar and a large entertainment area. My wife and I had some very hotly contested foosball games. After my glorious victories, the staff served us dessert next to the field of battle.
Breakfast was modest, but not lacking. Oddly, even though the hotel was mostly empty due to the season, we were assigned a table. it wasn't a problem, but another couple coming in after us one morning that asked to sit somewhere not right next to us were politely refused. Fortunately we all got along great.
We had dinner the first night. It was very good, but not particularly outstanding. We discovered that in April, Eiger is one of only two or three restaurants open in Murren. It is expensive, but it seems everything is in Switzerland.
Service was good. I was particularly thankful to the proprietor for happily allowing me to pay part of my bill with my remaining Swiss Francs and the rest with a credit card.
We loved our stay in Murren and cannot recommend the Eiger Guesthouse enough.
