“A stop on the way”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

It's one of those hotel from which you should not expect to much. The room is ok, the breakfast simple but enough. And that's it.
But the location is perfect if you need to stop for the night in Switzerland and you don't want the get of the highway.

Nice and homely hotel. Far from town, quite hotel with lots of green. Lovely to see small farms around the area with horse raches.
Great view of snow mountains in far. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stop off here regularly and have always found it exceptional value as well as being well run clean and tidy. The welcome at reception is always friendly and the breakfast is always good. Its proximity to a basic but good restaurant and shop makes staying out of town a pleasure especially when you are just passing through.
Two gripes which need addressed, firstly the provision of free wifi is great but the speed is so slow, its almost unusable. It would also be good if there was a least one english language TV channel.

Stopped here on way to Italy. Very friendly and helpful staff and good location. Ideal for a stopover and also close to Lucerne. No air con in the room but fans and good free wifi. Plenty of free parking and very quiet despite being close to motorway.

This hotel is fantastic for stopping over on a drive down the motorway to Italy and is reasonably priced but it is quite basic with limited parking, simple rooms and a poor choice for breakfast. It is not close enough to Lucerne to be a sensible option for visiting the city but it is easily accessible from the motorway and a safe bet for a stopover.

This hotel is located on the Swiss autobahn and can be accessed from both sides of the motorway. The staff is very caring and the rooms are very clean. The continental breakfast has more than sufficient choice and if you are in need of warm midday meal or dinner you can walk down to the nearby restaurant. There are ample parking spaces available free of charge. Luzern is approx 20 mins. away, Zurich city is 45 mins drive and Zurich airport about an hour away. Basel too take about an hour.Visitors should know that the rooms have no air conditioning and can get pretty warm in the summer heat.the rooms are provided with a small table fan but the windows can be opened. I liked the place and will return when I travel that road again.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room or for rooms on the north side if travelling in summer.

I drove here in a day from London and everyone made me feel very comfortable. I have done this trip several times now and originally found this place quite by accident but find myself going back. The reasons for this is it's location, friendly staff every time and picturesque views.

Good continental breakfast and if you want something a little large in the evening try the restaurant next door. It is a buffet but very fresh food and very tasty.

We stayed 2 nights and on check out the lady behind the counter phone thought to the Holiday Inn in Pisa and made reservations for us.

I will definitely be returning here if I'm passing again.

Many thanks
