On a motorbike ride through the alps. We decided to break the trip and stay in Meiringen, we are so glad we did. The service from the moment we arrived was sensational. The restaurant served lovely food and cold beer, the room was spacious and very comfortable. It is a great base if you were to go trekking in the...

We used to stay here a while ago when the hotel was with its previous owners so we were keen to see what it was like now. We booked eight days stay over Christmas in a family room as we two children aged 5 and 8. The owners were very friendly in their e mails to us prior to the...

The hotel is well located in this small city. From my room, chosen arbitrarily, I had a view of the mountains and the falls which we visited later. While suddenly, the night was quite warm, the room heating continued and put us in a bit of discomfort. We had to open a window to make the room comfortable. No service...

We spent 10 days at this hotel and as we booked through Kuoni we were allocated ‘superior’ rooms. These were very well appointed with modern en-suite facilities (shower, no bath) and were kept nice and clean. The good news end there because, as previous reviewers have indicated, the food is dire. For example, one night we had the choice of...

This nice hotel is situated in an ideal part of Meiringen with many of the rooms facing a mountainous view. The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished but not particularly large. Everthing in the hotel comes with a heavy price tag; the internet, water during dinner (CHF8.50) and even a slice of butter. The quality of the food is...

Room awful - smelling of diesel, food inedible and staff totally unmotivated. We walked for 6 hours from Grindelwald to Meringen and found the Sherlock Holmes Hotel. We checked in and were shown a room very low in the hotel which was reached by going down steps behind reception. The whole corridor and area smelt of diesel, the room was...

The hotel was quite nice, in a fairly modern style, with rooms which were clean and functional. I don't think it was anything really special, but it was a perfectly good hotel. We only stayed for 2 nights, which was fine, I don't think that I would like to have spent a whole hoilday there, it was just a bit...

A Beautiful hotel in a lovely location. Unfortunately the quality of the evening meal was very poor (Unimaginative, stodgy, cheapest ingredients used.) It was also very poorly presented. In this regard it was the worst we have encountered in many years of foreign travel. We would advise bed and breakfast or even better room only basis and eat elsewhere.
