Set well back from the road and surrounded by gardens, this grande dame maintains an unruffled sense of calm. The tastefully decorated rooms have views of either the mountains or the river. Market-fresh cuisine is served in the highly regarded, hearth-warmed restaurant or on the enchanting summer terrace. Try the lemongrass soup with lobster ravioli, followed by the lamb with braised artichokes. The location, close to the Interlaken East train station, is perfect.
