We stayed here for 2 nights after staying in several other 4 star hotels across Switzerland. This is the pick of the lot. Breathtaking views from the room, walking distance to the train station, lovely village, decent breakfast, superb service, live music in the evening on certain days. Lovely swimming pool. Tasteful interiors. Next time I am in switzerland, this...

My Daughter and myself have just returned from a most enjoyable stay at the Pilatus hotel in Hergiswil. The stay was first class with very comfortable rooms. Excellent food, and wonderful pool and gym facilities and lovely evening entertainment available. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this hotel to anyone,...

This hotel was rather disappointing. We were given a large room with a wonderful lake view in the 'new' building, which on first look we thought was great. However, there was very little storage space, hardly any shelves, no drawers etc. Then we discovered that the toilet/bathroom had a see through glass door!! Very strange! We ate breakfast outside overlooking...

We had a great stay at this hotel. We traveled with Rail Discoveries from London to Hergiswil. The hotel is conveniently located near the station, with easy access to Luzern. The hotel sits on the Lake with great views all round. The restaurant was good.

From the point of check - in, to room décor, to swimming pool, lake view, everything, was really amazing. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was really a pleasure to stay here. The place is little far from the...

We did find that some of the staff did lack basic customer skills and that service was slow. Our room did not have a view and was situated in a newly constructed block. We were woken every morning at 7am by noisy earth moving machinery due to garden landscaping next door and building work. This was reported to reception but...

Having arrived at this hotel last week, I thought location was 'spot on' but unfortunately it wasn't long before I discovered that certain staff were not that friendly towards our group!!! Got told off for sitting in wrong eating area for breakfast even though the hotel was half empty & I felt like the naughty school girl in class. Loved...

Recently stayed at this hotel as part of a Shearings holiday.Note previous reviews about lake views.This does not apply to everyone and,like us,you could be left looking out on an eyesore.Despite complaining,there was no chance of being moved to another room.We had six nights of this,so we say beware as you could be the ones who draw the short straw.The...
