Hotel Oberland
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Lauterbrunnen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights in Lauterbrunnen and was very glad that we chose this hotel. Hotel is very near the train station. Lauterbrunnen is a good base if one is visiting the schilthorn, murren, staubbach falls, jungfrau and its half an hour to Interlaken. We even took the ferry from Lake Brienz to Interlaken after our visit to the Ballenberg museum and back to Laurerbrunnen. View from the train throughout was perfect with streams, valleys and falls.

A sincere thanks from us to Beverley for guiding us on the places to visit. She gave us a precise recommendation without us asking at all and we did some unplanned visit which turns out to be a good one. Thank you Mark for assisting us with the luggage and Ursula for checking if we are doing good. These are the people that makes our stay memorable with their presence.

A self service laundry can be found just opposite the hotel which is a pure convenience. 5chf per load of the laundry or dryer. The area itself is very quiet and peaceful. Anyone would love to stay there. We are given a 4 bedded room on the 2nd floor with a balcony facing the valley. Our family spend most of out time on the balcony provided with tables and chairs.

Rooms are basic, small bathroom. Spick & span. Simple amenities provided. Clean towels and bedsheets. Its an old hotel with a beautiful swiss charm that you will never get to feel around downtown. I can continue raving endlessly .... Look no further, stay in this hotel and you will never regret. However do not expect gadgety stuff or 5 star amenities. The 6 star service rendered and the lovely views are just enough for a lovely stay...

Lots of Love : Kamisah & family

Following the reviews of Tripadvisor I've choosen this hotel for my stay in Lauterbrunnen and I wasn't disappointed.
The friendly and lovely ladies from the front desk know their place and the area very well and give great advices...and they speak english.
The room was nice and we had the pleasant surprise of having a little balcony and views to the falls.
If there was only a thing to change I would just advice to a little update on the bathroom.

Room Tip: if possible choose room 28 with balcony and view to the falls

We were delighted to return to the Oberland for our second "White Christmas " with Albatros Tours in 3 years.
It was no trouble to arrange having exactly the same room as the previous trip. Usula, Mark & Bev on the front desk were all friendly familiar faces to us.
Unfortunately for us (one cannot blame the Oberland !!) the weather was not kind to give us the beautiful snow of 2010.
I do think there had been a change of chef which was a retrograde step which I am sure has been rectified by Mark .
Despite comments re the chef the Breakfast spread is glorious. Beautiful breads, boiled eggs keeping hot on a bed of salt, fruit, cold meats, preserves & so on with juice, tea & coffee.
Plus Mark listens to his Aussie guests & has ensured there are tea making facilities in the guest lounge for those who wake early & don't function without a wakeup cuppa...even at 5:00am !!!

Room Tip: Lower floors are kinder on the arthritus in the legs !!

Small hotel but very cosy and family oriented
Service from the staff are excellent, they even bother to pack breakfast for my early checkout!!
The food was great as well, probably the best I had in Lauterbrunnen.

However, this is not Zurich or Geneva.
Do not expect 5 star facilities, there is no elevator or 42" LED TV.

Very comfortable hotel with pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. We had a spacious, quiet bedroom with bath on top floor and lovely views which we requested. Enjoyed half board with good breakfast and an excellent dinner each night.
Very good base to stay as easy access to Murren, Wengen & Grindewald ski areas.

Six adults we stayed for 6 nights. A lovely new, modern and spacious self contained apartment in excellent condition with a very well equipped kitchen. Large fridge, 2 ovens and everything else that you need. 2 bathrooms/toilets which is a necessity with 6 adults.. Great views from the balcony. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel Oberland is in a great position, just a few minutes walk from the station. Lauterbrunnen is a wonderful place to stay and great for day trips or for the skier. We stocked up on supplies at the large supermarket opposite Interlaken Ost Station on the way and then only had to replenish from the local supermarket. Would certainly use again.

We stayed 4 nights in the Crystal studio apartment across the road from the actual hotel. Minimum stay is 5 nights, but even with the cost of 5 nights (600 CHF total), it still averaged cheaper than hotel rooms we found in the area. It was spacious and quiet. Bed was equipped with the fluffiest blankets you just sink into, We made dinner x 2 in our kitchenette to save some money (food is EXPENSIVE!) My only disappointment was the patio which wasn't really much of a patio to sit on to soak up the view. Bathroom could use better lighting as well.

The owners treated us and all their guests with such friendliness you feel right at home.

Lauterbrunnen was the absolute perfect spot to stay. It was so convenient to take day trips anywhere in the region. We walked to the grocery store, bike rentals, restos, shops, train station, laundry, as we would as if we were on a resort. We were so glad we didn't decide to stay in Interlaken - you just don't get the same postcard-Switzerland feel as you would in Lauterbrunnen. We miss waking up to the sounds of waterfall and cowbells!

We will definitely stay in the Crystal studio when we return to Switzerland!

Room Tip: as long as you don't care for daily housekeeping service, why not go with the studio - cheaper...
