    Two of our party found the beds a little hard, but I found them comfortable. Fair warning, it is quite a hike from the train station (especially in the rain pulling luggage) and I highly recommend availing yourself of the hotel's complimentary transportation (learned our lesson and used it on our departure).

    We booked our room last minute and were uncertain of what to expect. Traveling with my husband, his sister, and his 75 year old mother, and often sharing one room, we were thrilled to have apartment-style accommodations. The two-bedroom apartment with a separate small living room (and a small balcony off the living room) was ideal. The view was breathtaking with my bedroom window opening onto Lake Brienz and we slept with open windows during our September stay. Complimentary breakfast was good and we loved walking on the waterfront and in the local streets. We took a day trip (via bus) to the nearby Ballenberg Swiss Open-Air Museum (highly recommend!) and enjoyed the local pub and a nice waterfront dinner at a nearby restaurant.

    Lakefront room in the top floor is beautiful, but really hot in Summer and the street is kinda noisy, so not easy to sleep with the much needed open window. A/C would be a godsend.

    The property offered early breakfast for participants of a special cycling event, which was very much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, the room (except the carpeting and two chairs) was old and "used." The coffee table was stained and even pieces of old papers were stuck on the table surface. The bathroom and shower must date from the 1970s. I don't know why the Swiss tourist industry is still limping behind - unless one books a room in a five-star hotel! And Brienz does not have neither a 4- nor 5 star hotel. Smaller hotels MUST try to catch up, otherwise the reputation of the Swiss travel industry will suffer.

    The location on the lake is fantastic - the morning and evening atmosphere over the lake are mysterious and nerv-calming. We had a room with large balcony directly above the lake and enjoyed the view of lake and mountains immensely. The manager at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming.

    BB owns the restaurant across the street, which is open later in the evening (7 pm for kitchen preparations, later for snacks and drinks), and is of good quality and service.

    Calm and spacious room with a terrace and a really nice view over the mountain. The kids played with some board games available at the hotel. Off the lake and the old town. Really nice stay.

    Nothing was inadequate, better than average, but not stunning.

    This is an older hotel, but is kept up to an adequate standard. A bit expensive for the room, but it was in a good location. It was steps away from a gorgeous lake-side promenade and a sweet little village, with big potential to do walks in the area. I am sad to see hotels putting in these horrible, all-in-one soaps, but that's progress apparently. The breakfast was pretty good, with lovely breads, meats and cheeses. The restaurant was also of a good quality.
