    There is very little here that you could find fault with! The hotel is elegant, staff are friendly, the surrounding Brienz lake, Geissbach waterfall and funicular railway are fantastic. Get the railway down to the jetty and catch one of the regular ferries to Brienz or Interlaken - if you can get the paddle steamers they are wonderful. Food wise - Exceptional continental buffet breakfast with a warm buffet to compliment. The honey, straight from the comb, was superb - especially as you can see the bee hives on the approach to the hotel. We ate in both restaurants - if you can when you get there, try and get Table 1 in the Les Cascades restaurant - its has quite exceptional views of the waterfall. Both restaurants were great, attentive staff and wonderful food. A special note to the man who plays the piano - we watched him at breakfast and before dinner both nights. Extreamly talented and creates a wonderful backdrop to pre-dinner drinks. If you are looking for a modern hotel with all the modern extras, this probably isn't for you; but if you are looking for a memorable stay amongst fantastic surroundings you could do no better.

    Nothing at all to complain about. The access road from Brienz is rather windy and narrow in areas but perfectly accessible.
