“Won't stay anywhere else in Lauterbrunnen!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2008

What a wonderful hotel!! This was my husband and my first trip to Switzerland and the Bernese Oberland, and I have to say that our vacation exceeded our expectations. Lauterbrunnen itself is in a great location. Easy access to skiing, hiking, or trains to anywhere! The hotel is just steps (literally) from the train station and lift. We stayed in a room which had been recently renovated. It was very clean, comfortable, and had a wonderful view of the valley. The staff was extremely nice and more than willing to give suggestions or recommendations. Breakfast buffet and restaurant were also very good. When were walking through the town, some of the other hotels that we saw did not look nearly as nice. We won’t stay anywhere else in Lauterbrunnen!!

My fiancee and I stayed at the Silberhorn during February Half Term and would say it is probably the best ski hotel we have stayed in. You will not get a better 3 star hotel in a ski resort anywhere and we have stayed in lots over the years. The location is perfect with the train station to Wengen and Interlaken only 100 metres away and the lift to Murren literally next door.

The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. But the best thing about this hotel is the food. We enjoyed a great breakfast and an even better dinner. The dinner is 5 courses and is first class, you would be pleased if you received this at a top restaurant. The staff are efficient and friendly, speak a variety of languages and the wine list is very good indeed.

Lauterbrunnen is very quiet, but wengen is only 15 mins away by train and they run until midnight, interlaken is 20 mins away. As this is Switzerland, the train service is without doubt the most efficient I have experienced.

I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone, we were delighted with it, so much so I felt I needed to write a review, which is something I have never done before.

We loved looking out over the balcony at the waterfalls, and sitting at the end of the day on the hotel balcony looking at waterfalls and mountains. The room was spacious and comfortable. The heat is not adjustable; it is all automatic, and no heat or air when you are not in the room.

This hotel is convenient to the train station, straight uphill!! And the hotel has no elevator, and what we call the second floor, they call the first (as opposed to the main floor). We were on the second floor, and went up two full flights, and there were two more floors, so be prepared or ask for a certain floor. Remember, the higher floors have even better views, but the luggage can be heavy!

As is typical in this part of Europe, your bed is two twins put together, with two twin blankets for sleeping. We found the blanket too heavy, and were given sheets when we asked for them.

We found the location convenient to everything we wanted to do, and they trains, cable cars, and walking paths are unending. Be warned, however, that everything in this town is QUITE expensive. The breakfast at the hotel is very nice, and in a beautiful setting. And the bag lunch available from the hotel is quite sufficient for two people and truly a bargain. There is a little bar at the end of town where people visit, drink, and play cards that we enjoyed.

I did a lot of research before deciding upon this location, and thought I had discovered a treasure, so was surprised at so many English speaking people. When I asked, they said this location was recommended by Rick Steves!! I guess I should have read his book. He was not wrong!

We took hundreds of photos in this area, and would share our Winkflash site with anyone interested.

My sisters and I took our mother to Lauterbrunnen for her eightieth birthday. The hotel was easy to reach from the station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They went to a lot of trouble on the birthday to make the evening meal special, the table was set with candles and ivy and we received very attentive service.

We would all like to return to this hotel, the rooms were comfortable and clean, the food good and the staff went out of their way to make sure that we all had a wonderful time (and we did!)

The hotel's location was perfect, the room with a balcony was very nice, and the scenery and mountain trips were awesome. However, the staff seemed like they really didn't care about the guest. Restaurant was also very nice, but again the staff acted as if everything was a bother.

This was our second visit to the Jungfrau region, having once stayed in the Autumn in Grindlewald we decided to have our second stay based in Lauterbrunnen in the winter as this seemed an excellent base for ski-ing.
We chose this hotel from a website and memory of the village then contacted them direct. We booked a "plus" room and were not dissapointed with the view from the balcony or the room its self.

The reception staff and the family were very polite and helpful beyond belief with info on the area and the latest info on the ski runs in the morning.
The food was fantastic, we worked out that my husband and I consumed around 50 courses each during the week we stayed!
This is a great base for touring the area, and all the staff work very hard to make your stay run as smoothly as can be.

We were a little wary of what we might find readiing the reviews on this site after we had booked but all I can say is...........these people need to get a life! book a modern hotel in a city if you don't want "quaint Switzerland",and as for "hard beds" and "noisy trains" book hotels in deserts or on the moon!

This is a beautiful area and a smart, clean, friendly, traditional hotel, we will no doubt be re-visiting in the future.

I was really looking forward to staying at the Silberhorn after reading good reviews on here, but unfortunately it didnt live up to our expectations.

The room was ok, clean, and of average size. But the bed was the most uncomfortable bed on my whole trip, and after a very bad nights sleep I was woken up quite early by the construction next door. Due to this, we ended up checking out of the hotel after one night.

We had dinner in the hotel, and were not impressed by the selection of food, prices or the service.

On the positive side, the breakfast was good and the staff at reception were friendly. It is a nice enough hotel, it just wasnt suited to our needs.
