Romantik Hotel Schweizerhof Review
Behind its dark-wood, red-shuttered chalet facade dating from 1892, this big, comfortable hotel has been expanding rapidly in recent years—it's now twice the size it was in 2007. Wing chairs and bookcases in the lobby lounge and dining rooms are are inviting on rainy days. Guest rooms are decorated in carved pine and have tile baths. Service is attentive, unhurried, flexible, and extremely friendly, which more than satisfies the loyal clientele. The Schmitte restaurant, aglow with decorative wall paintings and lilac hues, serves nouvelle Swiss cuisine—try the duck breast with oyster mushrooms and shallots. For more casual fare, head to the sweet Gaststübli. Breakfasts are generous and are offered until 11:30 am (a rarity in these parts). There's a bowling alley, free bikes in summer, and free sleds in winter.
