Pros: Nice breakfast buffet; very good spa area; amazing view from room and balcony.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Right near the lake, great variety of on-site restaurant options, nice spa facilities. We walked the 20km loop round the lake - hotel was perfectly located for it (although the walk itself was great but not amazing). If weather is good enough for the Badi, would be amazing!
Cons: Spa was good but the main pools weren’t super warm - so was more a quick visit than spend an afternoon type spa - so depends on what you’re looking for. Everything was great, nothing was exceptional.
8.8 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The scenery was amazing. The building was freshly painted and beautiful.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location and the view of the hotel is great! The restaurant is also amazing
Cons: Breakfast could be better. Staff could be more friendly when explaining how expensive their non-free service.
7.5 Good
Pros: Vast majority of customers are German-speaking. The personnel can communicate in English. Rooms are OK, beds and showers are good. Food is good, but nothing special; no wonder the restaurants are not included in the Michelin guide.
Cons: I paid 8.5 CHF for ... tap water. The tap water must be very good in this area... The building is probably made of wood; when people walk or use the toilets upstairs, you can hear them. Most customers were elderly, so there were no "other" noises.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Despite being a hotel that caters mainly for busloads of tourists, the way this is done is sensitive & clever.
Cons: Sheer number of chinese guests checking in that made using the lift impossible!
Hotel Kreuz - Sachseln - Building

Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
7.5 Good
Pros: The rooms were clean and the views of the lake were great
Cons: I was quoted a price by www.booking.com of CHF 279 for two rooms and we are a family of 4. I specifically included the ages of my two children i.e. 11 and 13 on the search form. On check-out, the lady at the front desk insisted that I pay them another ±CHF100. They insisted that www.booking.com sent them an instruction of two rooms "for single use" whereas I booked for 4 people from the start. Finally, the owner intervened and conceded that I was correct after looking at the printout from www.booking.com. In my view, www.booking.com made a mistake and it led to an unnecessary dispute which was unpleasant. www.booking.com should make sure that what they quote to clients and what they communicate to hotel owners are one and the same thing.
7.9 Good
Pros: Breakfast
Cons: Location. Nose of church.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the fact that: 1. I could hire a mountain bike; that 2. dinner was excellent in their restaurant 3. The staff were really good people and helpful. 4. the bed (and pillow) was so comfortable [actually that's one of the most important things when I'm travelling]. 5. The bathroom was great 6. They have 2 saunas, a dry one and a Turkish one; they call it the "wellness area". I asked if it was brand new, the wood work in the dry sauna is fantastic.. but no it's 5 years old. Shows how well they take care of it.
Cons: Zip..... there's nothing not to like... seriously.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Landgsthof Zollhaus is a nice small hotel near the lake Sarnersee, conveniently located between Luzern and Interlaken. It has about a dozen rooms of various comfort levels. Our room had ensuite bathroom with whirlpool bathtub (and correspondingly high price) while some others have shared shower and toilet. We had a large balcony overlooking the hills where we have seen several times some wild animals on the slopes. The hotel has a very popular fish restaurant. The breakfast is also excellent. The employees of the hotel and the restaurant were very kind and helpful.
Cons: It was disturbing that the bathroom has no door, just a thin curtain separates the toilet from the bedroom. Moreover, an information booklet, 2 glasses, and perhaps deckchairs on the spacious balcony would improve the comfort of the room.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is so nice to access and has own car park place. Good views and good food.
Cons: Bathroom doesn't has a curtain by the windows. So embarrassed when I tell them about it. They said thry already know but actually it's the view for the all the road. So it's very uncomfortable.

Cons: The guesthouse rooms were old and the ceiling in the shower was a bit low
10.0 Excellent
Pros: best breakfast ever, location
Cons: wifi in rooms
5.0 Okay
Pros: The hotels architecture and views were lovely, apart from that, not much. The staff attempted to help but could have done more. They would not listen to my explanation regarding why I complained. They did offer a discounted rate for the upgrade. We wasted half a day negotiating and moving our luggage. The hotel should have offered to move our luggage. I intend to email the hotel manager and write a negative review on Tripadvisor.com
Cons: The room at the Gasthaus was not a double room as per the marketing photos, extremely disappointed with the room, best described as a single, tiny bathroom, more a closet. We were forced to complain and pay more for an upgrade to the Paxmontana Hotel. From past and recent experiences visiting Switzerland, one gets the impression that one is required to pay premium for the privilege. In terms of infrastructure, the country does rate highly, hence the cost.

Pros: Where do you start with such excellent a property like the Engel, staff and owners are so friendly, happy, helpful and generally interested in their customers. Breakfast is normally at 7am but as we needed to be gone by then so they happily served breakfast at 6am for us on Sunday morning which most Swiss hotels would not do! The restaurant is really nice and homely and the food amazing with affordable prices. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. We would certainly stay again and would recommend the Engel to anyone. Thank you!
