In May 2013, I undertook a short but emotional trip back to my country of birth
- Switzerland - with the purpose of scattering the ashes of my parents up in their
beloved Swiss mountains. I intended to accomplish this on the mountain top of
the Niederhorn above Beatenberg for symbolic reasons.
Unfortunately, I had not forseen the difficulties of securing lodging in Beatenberg
since my journey coincided with Mothers Day and Ascension Day. Having been
turned down by three hotels, one of them because I did not commit myself to three
nights, I finally pleaded my case to Jackie Daniels, who graceously and with
compassion managed to offer me a double room with balcony at the rate of a
single room. She and Bernard Oehrli, owners of the Hotel Gloria, were extremely
helpful in a delicate matter and went out of their way to accommodate my needs.
I pretty much concur with other reviews, however, I was particularly impressed with
the elaborate, delectable breakfast offerings!
In short, I highly recommand Hotel Gloria for their supurb hospitality!
