Hotel Schiff Am See
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Murten
Reviewed November 10, 2011

Hoped for a sea-side hotel, which this was, but other than the restaurant spending the night would be better done up the hill in the town of Murten. A number of hotels are at the top of a small hill that give better views of the Murtensee and would be away from the main street. The Hotel Schiff is pleasant enough but for the price you can do better elsewhere. The breakfast is minimal and substitutes silver place settings for food choices--there was only bread/rolls, jam, and a few meats, and yogurt/fruit. The town of Murten is cute and I hope to go back and stay there next time.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the road side room unless you are not bothered by road noise.

I went on a day trip out to Murten to enjoy the fine fall weather and have some Egli (lake perch). We decided on the restaurant at the Schiff am Rhein, as the menu was more reasonably priced than that at the nearby Vieux-Manoir, and the dishes we wanted were available at Schiff am See, as well. We would regret that decision by the end of the meal, and my father noted wistfully that you always do "get what you pay for" - even though Schiff am See was not exactly cheap.

We ordered the Egli (perch) two different ways. The fish itself, while fresh, was unremarkably prepared and bland. Unforgivably, the accompanying small boiled potatoes (Salzkartoffeln) were criminally undercooked and the whole mess was served by disinterested and borderline rude staff. The tip reflected the fact that the check, when presented, was more or less flung at the table by a put-out looking waiter.

Upside: we subsequently proceeded to Vieux-Manoir for coffee and dessert. Anybody reading this review would be well served to enjoy their entire meal in this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: I cannot comment on the rooms; but if you choose to stay here, definitely eat elsewhere.

This place was Ok...nothing special. Room was very basic. Nothing to distinguish it. Bathroom was OK...small but clean. No airconditioning and we could have used it. Restaurant was OK...expensive and average. Room was clean but very basic. No charm at all. Location was good. Could walk to ocean or town easily.
