Friendly waitress and cook, speedy delivery of the dishes, nice presentation of the food. Dishes were all very tasty, the prices appropriate. The menu is down to earth and has sufficient options for every appetite.

Funny decoration vintage like (to be gentle), good location, odd family people. Worth going because the place must come from outerspace/lost in time. A funny experience, as an old swiss movie could be... Pilatus is just near by, lake, great trekking possible

There were some good things: the room was comfortable and clean; the view was good - looked like Heidi could come running down the mountain at any time :) it was just a short walk to the Pilatus cog train and the lake. Quaint setting. The staff was rude. Food was edible, but nothing to get excited about. The fondue... More

Nothing good to say . Charge for poor internet service. Rooms OK with basic amenities. Staff cold and not very helpful. Limited breakfast . On the up side good location for Palatis. Walking distance to train and mountain rail/ cog.

Our accommodations in the Hotel Roessli Alpnachstad were beyond awful. The hotel manager was extremely rude. They boasted of a pool, but she didn't want us to swim and flat out told us that she would not give us any towels beyond the one provided in our room. The WiFi was a joke, the number of outlets in each room... More

The location of this hotel is amazing, especially if you want to visit Mt. Pilatus! But there are not many more positive things about this place. The rooms were (less than) basic. The shower, for example, was IN the room, there were almost no outlets (and those that were there did not fit my European hairdryer!), the wifi only worked... More

I booked this hotel knowing that it was walking distance to the railway up to Mt Pilatus, and I wasn't expecting it to be anything other than a basic hotel. It still managed to disappoint though. The rooms are as bare as you can get, with extremely small bathrooms. Our towels were not clean in our room, and the amount... More

This is a very nice cute and quaint hotel. It's run by a very nice family. It is located 300 yards from the base of Mount Pilatus. The rooms have not been renovated in over 30 years and i think that is what gives it a very country feeling.

Our tour group spent two nights here. It is very close to the train station and Mt. Pilatus so location is good. This is the only reason I considered giving it a poor rating instead of terrible. They charge ridiculous amounts for everything. The wifi is 5 CHF for the first 30 minutes and 3 CHF for every 30 after... More

Our group stayed for two nights, and everyone was very pleased with the rooms, food, service, location, everything about it. This hotel is run by a family for several generations, and it definitely had the feeling like we were staying in a home. The family environment was very nice!
