Hotel Postillon
Ranked #3 of 3 Buochs B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 October 2007

We stayed here for 1 night, on our way back from Italy. The rooms were very clean and the restaurant was evn better. The view from the hotel is beautiful.

The staff was very friendly and all spoke very good English.

I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone.

Having just tried 2 other hotels in the same area one of which we left after discovering it did not have heating system ( that was to be paid extra !!!! ) and both rated 4 star ( in this part of switzerland the 4 star rating seem to be given even to the most basic place ) we finally had to settle for the postillon as it was almost 11 at night which even in the height of summer is very late for this part of the world .This place classified itself a 4 star and although from the outside looks like any other pretty swiss chalet on the edge of a very nice lake ,which to be fair has impressive views ,as soon as you step in you are thrown back to an era that human kind has left back in the last century...shabby and cheap mid 70's deco.. The rooms are rather small and with wafer thin walls so you can hear anything and i mean anything...you are right underneath a motorway ,convenient if you are travelling but unbereably noisy all night and really that's it.
The breakfast included is vile to put it mildly and the waiting staff will make sure you will get completely ignored and any of your request even in the most feeble and basic german will be dismiss with a " nein ! " even if you are asking them to set the table which we did ourselves in the end.
This hotel is mainly used by traveller which like us i guess were too tired to even argue about the nearly 200 Francs ( 120 pounds or there about )a night that this place charges .My complains in the morning were simply address with "Thanks for your comments "accompanied by a clearly sarcastic smile.
Give this place a complete miss as it is rather awful but don't be tempted to go to the nearest village either as the hotels there are even more disappointing and as equally expensive for what they really are !

This hotel is located next to a lake with fresh air. The rooms are standard size. They grade themselves four star but this hotel needs major renovation... At its present state, I would grade it 2 1/2 stars.
