Friendly staff; clean rooms; good value for money; suitable for families with young children; conveniently situated a fw kilometers before the St Gotthard tunnel to cross in the morning before the queues start somewhat noisy due to neighbouring train station
Surrounding views A bit run down
We arrived late at night and departed early next morning. Dinner was still served when we arrived. Poor breakfast.
Friendly, easy going, relaxed
The hotel owners were very helpful and wanted to please Expensive for a 3 star hotel but it was cheap for Switzerland. It was alright but don't hold your breath.
excellent buffet breakfast; swimming pool; helpful staff
Courtesy of staff; wellness facilities, good half-board treatment....we'll definitely visit it again! Wellness facilities closing at 8.00PM....
the great 4 course set menu and no problems with outstanding vegan meals. rooms very comfy, staff friendly and helpful and a great barman/waiter with a terrific sense of humour - (thanks Pasti) disappointed the pool and wellness centre were being renovated. We booked this hotel primarily to have use of these facilities in case there was insufficient snow for skiing (which happened to be the case), but the hotel was advertised as having these facilities up and running.... still we managed to amuse ourselves
I liked everything.It was amazing!The view was perfect,the services was excellent.
hotel is very nice,beautiful area and a very nice and clean room.i raccomended for more than 1 day. the address on the website should be the one of the lift station, make thing easier with the car navigator. inside the hotel all the indications,brochure,menu or spa informations should be also in english
Booked a superior double room located at upper floors with excellent views over the mountains. Excellent location, ski shuttle in front of the hotel, fair breakfast though under a 4-star usually offers and a little bit overpriced but overall good hotel.
The staff was extremely friendly. The location is perfect, right in the center, with the ski bus in front of the door, ski school office and information center across the street, nice restaurants and a supermarket nearby. The swimming pool and wellness are perfect. We will return ! With our dog - he liked it too :-)
good sauna facilities
breakfast,friendly staffs and location sauna should be separate between man and woman.
The bed was very hard and uncomfortable
The hotel is located near the town center and the ski bus pick up point. Very good breakfast facilities in the morning. Apart from lack of follow thru on promised adjustment of room rate for kids, the hotel has only one PC in the lobby for internet access. This is clearly not sufficient for for potentially 150 plus users.
Staff were very friendly, especially in the dining room. Very tolerant of children Cleaning staff could have been better
We liked the location and the breakfast.
The staff were excellent , extremely helpful and courteous , went out of there way to make you feel welcome Pillows ( if you can call them that ) . Shower head was useless
Horrible and a highly overpriced hotel.. No services, no coffee maker in a hotel room rated 4 star. Also staff very ineffective.they charge05 francs for a bowl of hot water to sterilise the childs spoon. Everything.
We really liked the location right on the lake and how quiet and peaceful it was. The only thing we did not like was the fact that the hotel was not completely non-smoking.
We have booked this hotel after reading the reviews on this website. This is indeed a very good hotel. The hotel staff was wonderful. The view was fantastic, the room was clean and quite. We had a very, very nice stay. We will come back.
Great staff :) great location best spot and hotel in europe
location and facilitioes, its superb no
location, absolutely beautiful place at the lake The hotel is at the waterfront, but our room had a view to the yard with the roof right under our window. We were quite dissapointed, and we would prefer to pay more for the lake view. Unfortunatelty this was not specified during the booking
The location is great. The hotel staff was very gracious and professional. The price is painfully high. The room was a bit spartan. Lack of in-room amenities such as coffee, iron/ironing board were inconvenient.
Amazing location with beautiful view. Totally overpriced and overrated; doesn't deserve a 5-star classification in my opinion. The room was small and not particularly attractive, and had what was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on; it was like a board. Unfortunately, there was a wedding taking place the night we were there, so we heard loud music until 2 AM. The breakfast was pretty chaotic and disorganized.
I really enjoyed the treatment and the kindness offered by your personnel during the dinner in hotel's restaurant on the lake front. The way of welcoming at reception on the first day was a bit bewildering as the reservation was not in the system. Secondly, smell of cooking can be felt heavily during and after the meals in the hotel
The hotel in general, staff and position of hotel. Hve stayed here 5 times in the past 4 months. Would not think of staying in any other hotel in the area. Nothing
Beautiful view, fine service, charming room. The best in Central Switzerland. All in short walking distance
Within walking distance of the lake and town. Rooms are basic with no restaurant on site but there is a restaurant / bar next door. Breakfast served next door - cold buffet only Wash basin in room, not in bathroom. Expensive internet
Carring staff it might that in some cases the fact that ther is no 24 reception atendancee may create a bit of problem
Excellent price/quality index. (2 rooms for young family for the price of a double room). Pleasant and good employees. Very nice breakfast and a terrific Italian restaurant next door. Very near to the lake with a nice place to swim and children playground.
location within the city, quiet and staff was helpful. nice breakfast
comfortable room; central location (I did not have a car); good choice at breakfast Lighting in restaurant - fitted with spot lights: some areas too bright, others too dull. Technology more suited to night club!
The level of service of the Staff is Excellent. They really could not have been more helpful or nicer. We would go back just because of that.
staff were friendly and helpful. owner excellent chef patron. local specialities on menu were very good. good location. room was not four star. no handbasin near toilet. beds were not that comfortable. car parking limited spaces.
There was no refrigerater in the room in the 4-star hotel! Breakfast service was terrible!
- very friendy and helpful owner, good price/value relation, excellent geographical situation, easy access by train and boat, tips and hints given at the reception for daily trips (very relevant and helping to save time on research), amount of tourist information and competence exceeding this one from local tourist office Breakfest staff can make more effort in speaking foregin languages, however friendliness makes up for this little issue.
The City hotel is quite central, while still being in a relatively quiet area. It is also very close to the beautiful lake and the ferry dock. The staff at the hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful (on New Years Eve, no less) and even took the time to check weather reports for us to help plan our next day.
It was a beautiful room And the view and the owners very friendly and made us feel at home we will be back
The staff were very attentive to us as a family with 2 young children and this was appreciated. The family room we booked was perfect and allowed us to eat early with the children in our room and also enough space for the children to play and for parents to relax.
I staied this hotel 5 nights. Facility and service is not bad. But front manager is not professional. When I check out, they bill me more than 1000 SFR than I resrved. To solve this problem, it took more than one hours! I use many times booking.com, but I've never met this kind of problem
A good stay, friendly people, very helpfull, nice place, good beakfast, parking, free internet WI-FI, budget friendly, very nice room ! No
Full equiped room (inc. kitchenette) in a convinient location. Breakfast was generous.
Good Hotel outside Paris. Take the rer to downtown. Rer vey close to hotel.
Close to skiing, nice spa area Poor brakfasts, no possibility to eat dinner
Good location out of the centre of town. Room had a nice balcony to enjoy the mountain air and for a permitted smoke. Does not take American Express.
Excellent hotel rooms were clean. Hotel is just walking distance from the Railway station. Break Fast was good & unlimitited as well.
Peaceful atmosphere, homely feeling,friendly staff and owners -None-
The hotel had a great location right on the lake and was also handy for the local ski area. Superb views when eating breakfast. Ferry across the lake (summer) 2 mins walk from hotel. The hotel needs some serious investment. Such a prime location should really be offering better facilities. The room which I was allocated was whilst large, had an old push button television, a 70s style radio alarm clock featured in the bed side fittings, the furniture was tired and rooms were accessed via a very old lift system. The staff could have been a little more informative when checking in as there was a 25% reduction available on ski lift passes. Was not told of this until after and nor was I told that the pass could be used at near-by Engelberg.....a much larger ski resort than at Beckenreid.
View from room was excellent and friendliness of staff
...situation ...hotel could benefit from a make over ,no maintenance done for years. We have been there several times and what a pity - now for the last time. Too much wear and tear and expensive ,as well diner in the hotel.
the hotel is located in a quiet litte village, yet close to main roads. The cuisine is a one would expect; honest food, tasty and no-nonsense. Service is flexible and very friendly. Very clean rooms, spatious and equiped with a nice functional bathroom. Hiking trails in front of the hotel!
The staff were very helpful with any queries about the area. The view from the balcony was stunning, breakfast was plentiful and the dinner we ate in the restaurant was supberb. There was some kitchen smells in the corridor but once in your room it was fine
Friendly stuff, food was good and the Internet conection worked very well. Furniture dated, very warm in the corridor and you could even smell what was on the menue ...
position, views, outside dining, secure parking. Had booked for 3 nights and got there to find the third was free. Good food! no
Beautifull view from balcony over the lake !
We were there during the Christmas season and enjoyed the Christmas market and the small town atmosphere. Excellent St. Nick parade.
location with repect to the ski lift and the breakfast was good. We live in the USA and stays in hotels are much more reasonable with regards to how much it costs.
The hotel was very nice. It was close to the ski lifts and also to the center of town. Currently there is building construction going on behind hotel (beyond hotels control) and work starts at 0700 and terminates at 1630. Not that bad if you get up early, however forget about sleeping in.
staff very polite and friendly we upgraded to half board and menu was only in 1 language, food was undercooked which we then had to buy food out the meat had blood running out of it and no option have have fully cooked
clean room. good views. quiet nights. excellent breakfast. price slightly high
Excellent location in Engleberg, handy to Gondala and village restaurants with friendly helpfull staff and comfortable good sized rooms. My wife and myself enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay there again.
location to town centre
Very convenient location, 5 min walk to the Titlis cable car. Big variety for breakfast and friendly staff. Not really...
It was great weather and the scenery is just stunning. The hotel room was very nice, every room in the hotel has a balcony, which is good. No tea/coffee making facilities (but that is normal for Switzerland)
Quiet & friendly Bar and door close at 9:oo pm.
Hotel is ideally located and had a excellent scenaric view. The Hotel Name is written as Hotel Sonnwendhof. There is no where mentioned that it is Treff except on a flag.
pleasant helpful people in the hotel, nice breakfast, good area for a range of activities. better to have a car but not essential especially if you enjoy walking.
Everything about the Garni Hostatt was wonderful. After travelling around Europe/UK for some time, staying some great hotels and B&Bs, we really wanted to spend Christmas in a place that provided a feeling of home. The Garni more than met this need. The warm greeting on arrival immediately set the scene for the next 5 days. Our room had amazing views across the snow to the mountains and was warm, comfortably and scrupulously clean. We just loved the walk into the town so much that we never even considered taking the Engelberg free bus service. We now dream of returning to Engelberg and if we are lucky enough to do so, our first choice for accommodation is the Garni Hostatt.
Spacious room, great views of the mountains, nice walk into town, good breakfast, free coffee and tea making facilities which was quite nice. Booked a medium sized room, didn't look like what was in the picture, green carpet, no floor boards. Asked about wifi and didn't tell us about the free wifi, only about the chargeable one. Maid started to clean our room as if we were staying another night (i.e. made the beds), had to explain to her we were checking out so we need to go into our room and pack our bags.
everything was just great!
Excellent Hotel, fantastic view on mountains. Very clean.
The views of the mountains and town from the rooms was spectacular and the staff were really helpful with local knowledge and advice.
I really enjoied my stay at Garni Hostatt. Nice and polite staff, clean bedroom, good location (just 15 mins to the village by walk or 5 mins by free bus, only 5 mins to the closest ski station), delicious breakfast and the owner drove us (lift) to Engelberg train station when we left the hotel. The owner gave us very good tips about the village, where eat, have fun, rent ski equipament, etc.
it is a very quiet location, small place, very clean but a bit expensive
Friendly staff, lovely breakfast, beautiful setting, clean facilities, nice room, great to be able to purchase drinks for a reasonable price to take to the room. Only negative was the bathroom in our room, it was very very small and really let it down.
We opted for a large double and it was well worth the extra space. We had beautiful views of the mountains from our windows and a small balcony to sit and gaze. Very clean facilities with communal coffee making facility that you could use at any time. The breakfasts were adequate. The rooms very clean. The hotel is in a quiet location, a stroll from the centre of Engelberg. No complaints
