What a wonderful stay last weekend at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Bern! The journey started because my parents were married in Bern in 1962, and I wanted to find the location of their wedding photograph. I had the added bonus of arriving on the annual Museum Night which is a not-to-be-missed event if you are in Bern in mid-March. After...

I highly recommend the weekend brunch. The food is excellent, but more importantly manager Rene and head waiter Jay from Thailand are the best in the business. They are extremely detail-oriented and will make sure your meal will be the best you have in years. They are FIVE STARS all the way!!!

We stayed at Hotel Schweizerhof and Spa for 2 nights in early March. We arrived at the hotel at 8.30am, far too early to expect our room to be ready. We were warmly welcomed and checked in and our luggage stored. The ladies checking us in were so lovely and offered us suggestions on where to visit and said they...

When I booked the afternoon tea I was asked whether there is anything else they could do to make our stay comfortable. So I mentioned that the occasion of our visit would be the birthday of my husband. I got assured that they would take care of this. But as mentioned already in a lot of reviews before, the service...

Beautiful and prompt hotel that had it all together - definitely worth checking out the little spa as well! We were treated very well and really enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect little weekend stay in a lovely little city.

I'm a huge hotel snob, and so I'm always a bit worried when I travel to the smaller cities. But this hotel, conveniently located across the street from the train station exceeded my expectations. Even the small single room was cleverly split by a full wall to feel like a 1 bedroom, with a massive bathroom (tub and glass shower,...

The hotel is conveniently located next to the railway station. Staff at the reception is welcoming and room are beautiful. The spa is very nice, the gym tiny but good for training. If you don't eat much at breakfast, room service is a better option. The smoking lounge is nice, although when crowded it get too smoky even for a...
