It is worth paying for a lake view room as the hotel is on the shore of the Brienzersee and the views are lovely. The room was clean and comfortable with a shower above the bath (I prefer walk in showers, but there wasn't space). We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the various ferries arrive and depart. Wifi is...

Thank you very much for the very good review and all the important things you have noted. This is exactly what we would like to make guests feel !

Excellent hotel, superb location right on Lake Brienz. Beds very comfortable and room large, bright and well equipped. Balcony with view on lake. Staff most friendly and helpful. Delicious breakfast. Most interesting and varied area to visit. Will certainly return to this hotel for a longer stay.

The hotel is located only a few feet from the shore of Lake Brienz. The views from the room were incredible, especially in the morning as the sun rose over the lake and reflected on the surface. Lakeside rooms have fairly large balconies with two chairs and a table. I could comfortably eat or work on a laptop outside at...

The situation of this hotel is wonderful - it overlooks the lake and mountains and is in a quiet village. There is a free bus into Interlaken which runs every 30 minutes and there are further free buses that extend out of Interlaken to e.g. Unterseen & Wilderswill. I was travelling with my elderly Mum and asked for two single...

Thank you for your review and the nice wording about the situation, the view, the food, the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms. We are a bit sad that you disliked the rooms - we try very hard to make the rooms homely, but sometimes the guest looks at it from another sight. We agree that the shower in...

Desirous of a hotel to serve as a home base for excursions into the mountains yet not located in Interlaken proper, I conducted a sedulous on-line search and decided that my wife and I should stay at the Hotel Seiler au Lac, which is located close to the Interlaken Ost train station, the gateway to the Lauterbrunnental, in the lakeside...

We stayed there for four days. The view is breathtaking. I would come and stay there every time just to wake up and open my eyes on that spectacular view. It's very quiet area which is amazing.
