This is a very beautiful hotel in very beautiful location. The walk to the waterfall and around the property is very nice. Staffs and food is very good
Excellent view Excellent traditional building
Sinks is old and hard two work with No air conditioning Most important they don not change the blanket and the towels daily There room cleaning is under expectation
the view from the room of the waterfall and the lake .
the bed matters is not good and old and the pillows are not good .
There was no hot water in our room sometimes. At our arrival the toilet was not that clean.
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.
With a stay at Grandhotel Giessbach in Brienz, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Lake Brienz and Giessbach Falls. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
