Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had such a lovely stay at this gorgeously located hotel. We didnt see the view due to fog and mist, but the whole surrounding area was like a winter wonderland. We had lovely surprises from the hotel - it was our joint birthday celebration stay - they upgraded us from Waldhotel to the Burgenstock to the most lovely room with a fireplace and view and a bathtub. They had arranged a delicious birthday cake waiting in our room with yummy chocolates and mostly free mini bar! Great amenities, loooooved the fireplace, which was sooo cozy and warm and chirstmassy! As vegans, they made sure we had options for breakfast, lunch and dinner available and was super attentive and warm and welcoming. We did a mixology class which was fun and had a stint in the Ice Lab, super cool (literally as well) and is good for your health! It was during COVID-19 and all staff were hygienic and wearing masks including guests which made us feel much safer as well.

Another Amazing stay at Burgenstock Resort. We last visited in 2019 before Covid/Lockdown etc. Resort is easy to get to - we arrived by Train from Zurich Airport to Lucerne, then a short 5min walk to the Ferry terminal to catch the Catamaran which takes around 30/40 minutes across the Lake which has amazing scenery, a Funnicular was waiting to take us up the Mountain to the resort, bellboys were First Class took both our bags & directed us to the Hotel to check-in, Check-in was quick, room was amazing as usual with Alpine Views with a fruit bowl & Swiss chocolate on arrival, we visited Alpine Spa which is the best Spa we have ever visited, my wife was pregnant on the last visit so we didn’t use a lot of the spa facilities so this time we took full advantage & used the lot! Wife got a friendly reminder from the spa staff that no bikinis/swim wear were allowed as it’s a nude spa which didn’t bother us your allowed to cover up with a towel, there is a part that’s not nude like the infinity pool & main swimming pool, Waldhotel Spa (also a nude spa) is also amazing but a lot smaller & less crowded, we had 60min massage treatments at this spa which were 10/10, we visited Spices Restaurant, Lakeview Bar and the Oak Bar & Grill, the service & food including at Breakfast time were all amazing, we can’t even think of one fault apart from prices have gone up quite a bit since our last visit prices have gone up everywhere tbh but well worth it, We can’t wait to visit again!

Overall 10/10!

We stayed three nights in late September and were blessed with beautiful summer weather

My husband and I have traveled around the world multiple times and we're world class demanding. This is on the short list of places that have met and exceeded our expectations.

The room we were initially given, a spa suite, was gorgeous inside but, being on one of the lower floors at the end of the building, the view of the lake was occluded by trees and the other side was looking out onto the busy courtyard where people wait for the funicular. They didn't have a higher floor room of the same category, but we got a junior suite with an astounding panoramic lake view with a price reduction.

The decor and design of the rooms is very contemporary and very much to our liking. Beautiful wood, stone, glass and fixtures. Beds were excellent as were bathrooms.

Several of the restaurants hadn't yet reopened post-covid but those we tried (the Spices Asian restaurant where breakfast is served, the Sharq middle eastern) were exceptionally good. At the moment, though, no "traditional Swiss" to be had.

The resort accepted our US hard copy vaccine certificates, but to go into restaurants outside the resort, we needed a "Swiss certificate" which required a covid test in Switzerland. We also needed another covid test just before leaving, to fly back to London. The resort did both for us at their lab facility in the wellness orient Waldhotel that is part of the same complex, and their people helped explain the very confusing Swiss app that is used to generate the needed QR code and certificate.

View and landscape-wise there are two wonderful sides: the lake side which is one of the most beautiful in the world, and the mountainside which is lush, green and where you hear cowbells.

Spectacularly beautiful spa area with pools. Was also able to get a "real" massage from a young man who knew how to do real deep tissue, not the "powder puff" massage you sometimes get at big resorts.

Service bent over backwards to keep us happy, which isn't always easy. The staff were terrific.

Really impressive architecture and design. The staff is good, but not on par with the asking prices. The management is just below average. If one pays four digits you don’t want to be said that you have to take a boat and a train if you don’t want to eat in the lobby. Only one restaurant was open all night I stayed and it was always fully booked. Comparing it to a football club: expensive tickets, a magnificent stadion, good players, bad manager. Game lost.

Thank you very much for taking a moment to share your experience. We are indeed thrilled to read your fantastic words and that you found the Bürgenstock Resort property in respect to an impressive architecture and design exceptional in every way. Please kindly rest assured that your encounter with adjusted opening hours of our restaurants, due to the situation with the start of relaxation of the lockdown situation, our service did not reflect the true Bürgenstock Resort spirit and we have now increased our offer dramatically. I completely understand that it is nerve-racking that no restaurant had capacity anymore during your stay. Our preference planner sent 7 days prior to arrival as well as immediately with your reservation confirmation gives you the opportunity to directly reserve restaurants in advance or contact us for all inquiries. Once again, apologies that we did not meet your expectations. I sincerely hope we could go in another round and welcome you back again in the future to demonstrate you that we have strong team players being able to serve you with a service that is second to none. Warm regards, Robert P. Herr General Manager Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort

Wow! Arrived wound up after a terrible journey, ten minutes in the Alpine Spa and suddenly nothing mattered. Floating in the outdoor infinity pool’s warm waters, with fresh alpine air on your cheeks, views of spectacular snowy mountains and the lake 1,000 metres below the pools edge, it’s just out of this world. The dark ‘floating hamam’ was also a super sensory experience that was new to me.

The room was stylish and at the same time really comfortable and ergonomic. So lovely having the flickering fireplace, sunken bath by the huge window high on the mountainside. I’d love to have brought one of my children, as they can set up a soft bed in the bay window for kids, it would be like sleeping on a cloud in the sky, I’ve not seen anything like that before.

Home made bread in the Oak Grill was manner from heaven. It’s a terrific stylish dining room, with oversized oak tables, beams and a great jazzy playlist. In fact the music set a good beat wherever in the hotel without being intrusive. Spices (huge open kitchen) and Lakeview Lounge have knockout views and delicious cuisine. Breakfasts are really lovely, with your own mini buffet served in a nifty ‘tower’, which felt like a smart sustainable move, less wasteful than usual hotel buffets. And you’re surrounded by stupendous views of alpine peaks, quite mind blowing.

I liked walking up to the Waldhotel with views over the meadows to the local farms, who all supply the hotel, listening to cowbells and cockerels. A pretty contrast to the super stylish Burgenstock hotel. The cryotherapy at Waldhotel is amazing. Two minutes at -110 degrees, afterwards I felt supercharged, couldn’t stop running about. Really enjoyed the Colour Cuisine at Waldhotel’s restaurant Verbena, it was ‘Yellow day’, for an immunity boost. I met Katia who runs a Cooking Lab, so enthusiastic and very informative in just a two minute conversation, I’m going to go back for a nutrition education and better gut health.

What I really enjoyed was the friendliness. While this is a high style resort everyone was smiling, warm and enthusiastic making it a really happy stay, I’m still grinning as I write this.

Very nice room, spacious, with a fireplace and a very large bathtub, possible to take a bath for 4, 2 adults and two small children. The Bulgari Green Tea products are captivating. This establishment reconciled us with the Swiss delux hotel industry. Certainly the price is expensive but for the service provided then it is a rate that is worth it

Amazing experience overall!!!
For a large family including 5 kids, this was a great resort to spend the weekend!! Now I realize you need more than a weekend to take advantage of the number of activities available both at the resort and around the area.
From the arrival via catamaran and their own funicular to the location with unbeatable with 360° breathtaking views, this place is quite an experience.
The quality of the hotel is top-notch and so are the restaurant options within the resort.
We were able to hike on the Cliff Walk to the famous Hammetschwand Lift, bike ride to the famous Villa Honegg and Vierwaldstättersee viewpoint, spend time on the tennis dome and of course swim on the famous infinity spa pool... but we missed many other activities so next time we shall spend more time at the Bürgenstock Resort.
Minor details could be worked on the housekeeping side to clean up the rooms promptly and except for Lucas, which was a great concierge, the other one was not very helpful specially on explaining what our family packaged included or how to organize the best activities for the days.
Would recommend it and will return in the future.

it was foggy and we looked down on a fog ocean with some islands.
Stunning view from our room, a full lakeview room. On a clear day one will see lake Lucern but now it is mystic, sitting in the sun looking at the fog in the lower altitude.
The room is spacious with a panoramic window in the bathroom, sitting the tub will give superb view. Also a 2 sided fireplace, very romantic. But it has its price.
If you travel with more luggage, there could be a storage problem, otherwise the layout is practical and focus on the view.
We seem to had a bad day in regards of the service callcenter, 2 calls and both were not up to the standard of 5*. The service in other parts were great and attentive. Maybe a one off problem but gets the rating down for us.
If you like to dine do not forget to make a reservation in time, it was busy and the good tables were already gone 2 days before the dinner.
Overall a great experience.

There would appear to be no planning between the resort and with online hotel booking agency's ...

After reading the reviews of the resort online I was impressed and decided treat my wife to a stay in the hotel. I reserved a room at the Bürgenstock hotel via booking.com which indicated that the hotel was open after the Corona situation.

We then received a message from the resort asking us which restaurant that we'd like to reserve.

Next day, we received an email informing us that we could'nt stay in the hotel, the spa and restaurants were closed until the 8th June 2020 and if we'd like to stay in the Waldhotel instead, hell no!

We were asked if we wanted to cancel, so we replied back to the e-mail and then they came back and said to contact booking.com to do so. It would of saved time, if we could of been informed of the process all in one message.

So much time wasted and needless hassle, our expectations were clearly not met. This is not the level of service which we'd expect from a world class resort and we were offered no compensation or incentive to re-book. I would of expected the resort to work with booking.com and others to co-ordinate on opening dates but more so, we were really looking forward to a good break!

For the price you pay, you expect something perfect.
Check in is robotic; no welcome drink offered, no towels, upgrade not offered at checkin as a LHW member but must be requested and then granted.
Restaurants are all closed except Spices and the lobby bar.
Excellent service at Spices at breakfast and dinner.
Spa is beautiful but the infinity pool is overcrowded at peak hours with people taking selfies... at + 1000 chf/night it’s far from exclusive. It’s cheap . Are there covid measures to ensure a maximum of people in the infinity pool?!
Great room but tea and coffee weren’t replenished.

Dear valued guest, We are sorry to hear about your experience here at the Bürgenstock Resort. The issues will be taken up with the team as. We always strive to satisfy all of our guests wishes and would have liked to learn from your experience already here at the resort. At the same time we are indeed glad you had a wonderful time at the Spices Kitchen & Terrace. Please rest assured that our team is very much concerned about the health of our guests and employees. Appropriate measures were taken and even though we are trying to maximize the control of the number of people allowed in the SPA it is upon every single guest to keep the distance to others - but certainly will I remind the team to watch the situation more critically. Please also accept my apologies that your in-room coffee and tea amenities were not replenished. All our dedicated hosts are trying to serve you with utmost care and attention - I am indeed sorry that our service this time did not live up in all areas. We hope to welcome you back in future, to change this memory into a fantastic one. Warm regards, Robert P. Herr General Manager Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort
