We had awesome weather, so I'm sure that affected our experience, but we stayed in late October and it was perfect!! Highlight of our Europe trip. It was so great to be settled in in the mountains, yet with such nice accommodations. Great for my Mom who can't walk very far to experience the alps (with using the shuttle from... More

I recently spent two nights at Berghotel. The mountain and the lake truly speaks for itself! The views are breathtaking and my friend and I were taken to a happy place.

This place is a true treasure. I highly recommend staying here, It is such a delight to view the glacier lake in the morning and night ad the light changes. Rowing a boat on the lake was amazing. Hiking around the lake and looking at he sculptures and seeing the cows was so special. My favorite desert in Switzerland was... More

Impressive view and location for people who love nature. The hotel is not located in the village, which mean that you either go by Gondola (18 CHF one way) or you walk up there ( 1 hour). The gondola closes at 6:00 pm so plan ahead if you are in the village during the day. The staff and the owners... More

This hotel is a magical place in the Swiss alps. Set on a glacier fed lake with snow capped mountains towering over it, it provides everything you could want from the Swiss alps. The family running the hotel are very friendly and the rooms charming and spotless. Highly recommend.

We popped into this lovely restaurant for lunch on Friday 12th February. We had taken the cable car up the mountain with the intention of tobogganing back down to Kandersteg. The hotel is in a wonderful location, up the mountain and next to a lake, which was beautifully frozen over while we were there. We sampled the home made soup... More

They cheerfully and professionally accommodated our highly diverse group of thirty people from 5 different continents in simple, pleasant small rooms.

I took an extended layover in Switzerland during business travel and decided to see some of the country instead of staying in the city. I happened upon this hotel during a random search and am very happy I did. The Hotel and Restaurant Oeschinensee were exactly what I was hoping for.

We stayed here for a night during a week long trek across the alps and all of our party of 4 agreed this was the best place we stayed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The mountain lodge is owned and runned in 5 generation by the family Wandfluh. Famous for its organic lamb dishes from the own farm, the food is healthy and served fast. There is a rich vegetarian choice (gluten free, milk free and vegan as well). To sleep here is more than just staying in a hotel. Relax on the terrace or in front of the fireplace in the evening. Enjoy the silence at night and wake up with the sound of waterfalls. A real Swiss breakfast is waiting with home baked breads, cheese from the valley and apple juice of the region. Yes its true, there are is bathroom in the room, but there are shower cabins which standard is completeley up to date. The family Wandfluh is looking forward to welcome you soon! ... more   less
