Very good central position in the small town of Avenches. Attractive medieval buildings and interesting Roman amphitheatre used for opera and other festivals. Easy access to the lakes for steamer trips and not too far to drive to the mountains on a days outing. Breakfasts acceptable but rather haphazard service with items running out and not being readily replaced. Restricted parking outside which could be difficult at busy times, the alternative is the hotel garage parking which is pricey at 25 CHF per day.
Beautiful old hotel in the best possible location on Avenue Central in Avenches (the old roman town of Aventicum), just a few steps from the old roman amphitheatre. Fantastic friendly helpful staff and wonderful coffees. Book to stay here for arena concert events, make sure to ask for parking. Wifi in some rooms very low - take your laptop to the reception lounge to connect.
no noise; At the breakfast, some piece of bread were stale
the room was very nice, unfortunately for the very large room the beds were a bit small. the staff could be much friendlier and give a warm welcome when you arrive....sad see abovethe prize is quite expensiove for what they offer, also the breakfast buffet could be much nicer organised
Very nice hotel, nice location and in this winter season the parking is clean Restaurant and Service and wine/food information and meals are just GREAT Congratulation on the chef and his staff
The restaurant was very good
nice service, good restaurant. rooms are good standard although all horribly smoky! Big big minus. Every room was apparently smoking room. Although I asked for non-smoking in my reservation - I was given a smoking room that smelled extremely strongly of cigarettes. On top of having allergies for two nights - all my clothes smelled like cigarettes. Very disappointing. Also - the website promised a bath in my room - but I was only given a shower. Otherwise a nice hotel experience was a disappointed due to these factors.
The location was very convenient for us.
The services and the restaurant(breakfast and bar) were excellent. It was situated at a good stating point for excursions in the city no
far too expensive, small room with poor equipment. Some of them remember second world war.
The lounge and breakfast were really good. Bed and Bad Room very small. Internet connection didn't work.
Very close to the small city center, convenient free parking, complimentary internet in the lobby, nice bar Breakfast was not as good as expected
Very close to the old city and center of the town the service is good and the personal really nice.
place of hotel situated against the city, and restaurant/ bar with the hotel the bed was a bit small, and pillow to soft.
New facility, clean, basic. Good for those who want to visit the area at a low cost for accommodation. Restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent. Location is perfect for city center and lake.
pleasing contemporary design and helpful staff
The hotel is located close to a medieval village. It's like an outdoor museum, 15th century buildings and walls from the 12th century, and the Castle at the end that is from the 13th century, with flower boxes everywhere.
This hotel is in an excellent location on the shores of the veery pretty lake of Murten with phantastic views over the lake, the small boat harbour and the surrounding hilly countryside. The restaurant terrace overlooks the lake.Murten is an exquisite historic small town, well worth a visit.
The location of the hotel situated by Lake Murtens is quite nice. I would have rated the hotel as 2 or 2 and half * instead of the 3*. The hotel does not have AC, at night the mosquitoes swarmed into the room if we open the windows and the room gets stuffy and hot if we close the windows. The screen still allowed the mosquitoes to get into the room. The towels were thin, worn out, cover was haevy, a weird smell in the room and decor is spartan for a 3* hotel
Hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Hotel was a bit expensive. Next time I might by pass the town of Murten and stay in Avenches.
The Hotel is right on the historic centre, which is great. The serre in the breakfastroom gives a breathtaking view of lac Morat. The room was ok, and clean. I would have liked to have the possibility to make coffee and tea in the room. The bathroom was clean, but had no lock on the door.
Wonderful balcony! Splendid view! Fantastic room!
We were upgraded on the room, so the view of the lake from the balcony was stunning, as was the furnishing of the suite. The proprietors were exceptionally helpful.
The location none
If you need to stay in Murten, this is an excellent choice because of the location. This is an update to my previous review to change it from rather negative to positive. The item initially was mailed not as a package, but as a regular mail in an ordinary envelope. The envelope broke and that delayed delivery beyond the point I left the country. I have to say that the management went out of their way to remedy the situation and eventually shipped the item to my home country.
The room design was different and pleasant. The reception staff were very good, helpful and friendly. Some of the furniture is relatively old and in my opinion could do with a change.
The hotel was too expensive for what it was, we were given an upgrade to a room with a 70' style decor and a massive circular bed. Bathroom very old and hot water was off and on.Rooms definately need to be refurbished.
Located in the heart of the town Was looking forward to seeing which of the fancy painted rooms we were going to get only to find we had a beige room. Not happy about that at all. Whole of the floor creaked when walking across it.
Good location in the heart of medieval town, easy to reach from highway (about 5min). Very well equipped room with very comfortable bed. Food options limited to Flammkueche, but the Irish Tavern has all the drinks you want. Breakfast ok. And last but not the least: the staff at the Tavern is unforgettable. I wish I had more time to spend there...
Extraordinary location, a fairy tale like village
Location We received a 40SF fine at 7:40 am for parking on the side of the street overnight in front of the hotel as recommended by the staff person even after I questioned it. She said it would be OK until 10 am.They agreed to take responsibility for the fine since we were misinformed. Furthermore, no one was around until after 10:30 am to settle this - the same reason we were asked to pay in full for 2 days when we first arrived - the desk is rarely staffed. Our room was also changed from 24 to 14. This room required opening a door off the hall and walking between the open washer/dryer room and a draped off laundry area before reaching our door. No explanation was given other than it had been changed. This was not a 3 star experience.
Location on lake Muntelier rooms not air conditioned which could be a problem in the hot weather
nice repair room with lake view,LCD,room square is 30 m,good breakfast,god impressions like at a see make prices for restoran less
access to garden and view on lake. Also bath tub in room. Rooms are very old with poor decoration but clean.
The very nice location really close to the lake side. 5 minutes drive from Morat/Murten, a very nice café with snacks next to the water (Beach House), the design of the hotel (nice romantic wooden furniture for the hotel areas and modern design for the bedrooms. Last but not least each room has a private terrace. I would have added on the site that the hotel is 100% smoke free (you can smoke on the terrace).
Hotel room Breakfast was a bit poor
The staff of the hotel DEcoration of the hotel.No air conditioning
All the staff were excellent.
Freindly people good breakfast room is clean I booked twin bed with extera bed the extera bed was not avilable but was nice they ofer me exrea room
staff were excellent, fair pricing, very clean and comfortable. Unusual design. No real restaurant, but simple bar food available.
Modern architecture and decoration somehow out of the context of the location. Services polite and efficient. Good to find a parking with no cost. Not easy to find and is not really on the border of the lake albeit not too far but no view on it. Checkout at 11 am (preferred 12 pm). Housekeepers too noisy in the morning...
Very nice hotel, good location close to Lake Murten. The room was well equipped and in very good condition.
