Reviewed April 17, 2014

A return visit to Beatus and all is as good as ever. We spent 12 nights here and had a fabulous time. We were very lucky with the weather but then out of our many visits [over 10] we have rarely had any bad weather. As always the staff were amazing, the food very good and the included extras offered [such as trips out in the hotel's minibus] a real bonus. Yes, in truth over the years we have been coming the pound has really suffered against the Swiss Franc so it is not a cheap trip but still real value for money. A big thank you to Peter and all his staff! We'll be back.

Room Tip: Any room facing the lake is peaceful, with a beautiful view.

Dear Teresa
We thank you very much for your kind feedback on your stay at the Beatus. We are thrilled to have you as our regular guests and that you have remained loyal to our hotel for so many years, even though the exchange rate was not very favorable in recent times. That in itself is the greatest compliment for us! We wish you all the best for the future and look forward to welcoming you to the lake of Thun again soon!

This is a perfectly located hotel half way lakeside between Interlaken and Thun with the most spectacular lake and mountain views from the bedrooms,restaurants,lounges etc .
You are greeted warmly with a glass of sparkling wine and that sets the tone for a gourmet stay.

You have a degree of meal selection with half board and we never ran out of choices such that we felt a need to switch to a la carte. Wines are reasonably priced with Pinot Noir being a good choice.

Gym,sauna ,steam room swimming pool all top quality with helpful staff.

We found all staff and senior management were keen to ensure our short stay was enjoyable - which it was.

I am afraid I cannot think of a negative aspect to this hotel and look forward to returning in the summer so that the gardens and lake can be admired as well.

As far as I could tell most rooms have a lake view balcony which outside winter seems to offer a relaxing place to while away time.

Room Tip: Obviously lakeside high view

Stayed with an offer deal , for the weekend, where half-board, feet massage and cocktail were included in 2 nights stay. Location is hard to beat-lake, mountains , peaceful village. Wellness area is great-inside and outside pools with thermal water, relaxing area with water beds and headphones, and selections of teas. Dinners on both nights were top class ( 5 course meals, salad buffets and very nice main courses). From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with a glass of wine and our luggage was taken to our room. As we booked at a short notice we were advised that only rooms facing street are available, however our room had a partial lake and swimming pool view, which was nice. All guets are allocated a special table, where they take breakfasts and dinners ( good idea), and presented with a daily menu that also mentions excursions, weather and late availability of treatments at the Spa. At dinner a couple of guests had birthdays and staff presented them with a suprise birthday cakes. On our first night we had unexpected small bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room after dinner! It was a top class experience, as all staff were exceptionally polite and helpful apart from a man at the reception desk. On saturday morning we noticed that some scaffolding was put up just outside our window so I went to the reception to ask if they can move up to another room , and the young man just made a suprised face and said that someone will call us. In the afternoon we made another trip to the reception and a lovely lady receptionist immediately arranged for us to move to another room with a similar nice view. On the day of check-out ( check-out time is 11am) we went to the reecption to inquire if it`s possible to have a later check-out . The same unhelpful man just stared at us and said " No". He made no effort to check room avilability , and not told us that it`s possible at additional price-just "No". I planned on booking a return trip based on amazing experience we had. but this untrained gentleman receptionist has put me off . That`s why I have given 4 stars to my review and not 5.

Room Tip: only a few rooms don`t have a lake view and overlook a car park. All other rooms are great, and room...

We thank you very much for your kind feedback on your stay at the Beatus and for your many compliments. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us so much and especially appreciated our wellness area, the location and the restaurant. We sincerely apologize for the unfortunate incident with our receptionist.

We would be delighted if you gave us the chance to make up for this awkward last impression by favouring us with another visit.

The lake of Thun is arguably the most beautiful in Switzerland. Not too big but large enough to warrant a good boat service. The Beatus Hotel is right on the lake; the boats tie up beside the Terrace Bar and beneath the bedroom balconies. This is a large hotel but it has not lost the personal touch and every guest is welcomed and shown round the facilities which include a Wellness and Spa with an indoor pool and an outside, salt water pool surrounded by a garden for relaxing in the sun. There is a table d'hote and an a la carte dining room both producing excellent food. There are three menus in the table d'hote being an ordinary one, a vegetarian and a "fitness" menu. Breakfast is a veritable feast of fruits,cheeses and breads to suit every taste. In warm weather meals can be taken outside on the terrace.
Some afternoons and most evenings we found a pianist in the bar.
Our room was clean and comfortable with a balcony facing the lake and the Niesen mountain, one of the most perfectly shaped mountains anywhere.
After a strenuous week in the mountains where better to come and relax. The hotel is ideally situated just a half hour by bus from Thun and Interlaken, both towns well served by the excellent Swiss Rail service so trips up to the mountains or elsewhere in Switzerland can easily be made. We visited both Luzern and Lausanne (on Lake Geneva) for day trips with no difficulty.

Just returned from a week at this hotel. Splendid location right on Lake Thun.. Choose a balcony room to get the best views over the lake. Go half board as food was excellent with a four course evening meal and buffet breakfast each day. The lake steamer stops right outside the hotel. We used to get the first boat each day inti Interlaken which the gives you connections into them mountains and main cities. The capital Bern is worth a day trip. Staff were very attentive. Overall a great stay.

This is a beautiful hotel & spa in a more beautiful location. As Americans only speaking English, we felt comfortable interacting with staff and other guests. In fact, our language barriers often created funny situations… like trying to order a pot of coffee, and getting a pot of milk instead. No worries though. This top notch staff always overcame our shortcomings of the German language.
We didn’t realize when we booked that there were different “plans”. We changed to the “half board” so we could enjoy the 5 course dinners. This was a recommendation of the hotel manager (Peter)…and looking back, we saved money doing so.
So let’s get to some details…
Brine pool was awesome.
Sauna experience (male & female together, totally nude) was very liberating. I felt so European. Why don’t we do this in the states?
The view of Monch mountain is unbeatable. Enjoyed coffee at daybreak every morning taking that view in. Our room looked out over Lake Thun and Monch too. Just could not get enough.
Breakfast buffet was incredible. Maybe too much so as I am still trying to take off those vacation pounds.
5 star staff was efficient and courteous.
Spa treatment… My classic massage and foot massage was very nice. My wife did not enjoy her appointment as she received a clay application and short massage. She was expecting so much more. We think it was a communication misunderstanding.
Our room was spacious and very comfortable but lacked air conditioning. We cooled the room with an open patio door but occasionally had to put up with cigarette smoke drifting in from the guest next door smoking on his patio.
OK, more about smoking. The culture has changed in the USA. Non-smokers do not have to tolerate unwanted second hand smoke. Europe is nowhere there yet. Not even close. Almost all the other guests, maybe 70%, smoked at dinner. Where the weather was so nice, we all ate on the patio, and had to deal with the second hand smoke. Sigh…
The ferry stopping at the hotel was so convenient. We used it daily as it was free with our Eurail passes.
Flies… bothersome. Another sigh.
Diversity of other guests… intriguing. Many Arabic vacationers as well as Swiss and German people on holiday too. As Americans, we were absolutely in the minority, which suited us just fine. After all, we were visiting Switzerland. It would have been disappointing to find only other Americans there.
Closing with the food. Hats off to the chef who amazed us every night. We finally picked up on a subtle pattern where one of his 5 courses would be buffet style each night… pasta one night, desert the next.

This place is 5 star all the way. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose lake view and try to get an air conditioner. Show up on Sunday afternoon so you can attend t...

We thank you very much for your kind feedback on your stay at the Beatus and your recommendation. We are thrilled that your wife and you enjoyed your vacation with us so much and will be happy to pass on your many compliments to our staff. We are sorry that you had to endure second hand smoke on the terrace - our smoking guests usually wait until after the meal before they start smoking, courtesy to the non-smoking vacationers. We apologize if this was not the case during your stay. Once again, we thank you for your detailed review and hope to see you at the lake of Thun again soon.
