    Gorgeous swiss/ american style chalet hotel!

    Absolutely lovely hotel in a fantastic location next to old town Thun. My room had a perfect view of Thun castle which made a beautiful view to wake up to. Room was large, clean and nicely decorated. The on site restaurant was an American western theme, with a great fresh yoing vibe to it. The bar was closed due to Covid, but i can imagine it would be a great place to socialise. The burgers were amazing, and they an excellent variety of beers to choose from, ranging from, swiss, irish, british etc. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The parking is offiste at the local parkhaus, it was only a few minute walk back to the hotel. Also there is a nespresso machine for the guest which you can use at no extra cost. Only down side was i could hear a slight thrum of music still at 11pm from the restaurant below. However this was nothing too bad. Overall i was delighted by my stay i highly recommended this hotel, its magnificent! If you go to Bern or Thun stay here!

    Great place, friendly staff

    Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Decent restaurant with nice outside seating. It‘s not too quiet though, because of the street. But we‘ll definately go again when in the area!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Located in the center of the city near the castle. Nice, clean rooms with newer bathrooms. No elevator but they will help carry luggage. On a busy corner so request a room at the back. Good breakfast. Restaurant is “Tex Mex” so we ate elsewhere to find more traditional Swiss choices for dinner.

    This is an old hotel that has few amenities. Restaurant onsite that is okay.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This is a charming hotel that has just the right amount of quirkiness to make it a fun stay. It is located on one of the busiest roundabouts in the town so there is a bit of traffic noise that does settle down after 10 PM. The hotel has a Western themed decor complete with saddles hanging on the outdoor restaurant railings. Our room was clean and nice sized. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant food was standard pub fare. The restaurant is the main floor of the hotel with all rooms above it. It is a bit of a walk to the train station

    We spent 4 nights at this hotel, and we were very impressed with the staff welcome and general service throughout our stay at the hotel. All staff were very accommodating and helped us when we realised we had the incorrect phone charger for Switzerland. Every member of staff was efficient and friendly. We had a balcony room with a view of Schloss Thun which was lovely, we also had a view (although somewhat restricted) of the mountains which was lovely for the clear evenings. The room was clean and spacious, and was authentically Swiss which we really enjoyed. Breakfast was included, it was basic but delicious! I would recommend this hotel as the train station and sightseeing attractions are located approximately 10 minutes on foot. (With the exception of Thun castle which is located opposite). They provided a Panorama Card free of charge, for local buses and discounts to attractions in the lake Thun region. If it is your first time to Switzerland and you plan on doing a lot of day trips and visiting a lot of places. The Swiss Pass will Dave you loads of money, and I couldn’t advise it more, it it’s something you’re considering. The only downside was the roadworks going on outside the Hotel, but this didn’t particularly effect our stay. Thank you for a wonderful time, I would return to this hotel.
