    Not much, all good.

    Location right on the lake. Woke up to amazing views on our balcony. Room was fine - nothing special but was comfortable enough for two nights. Breakfast was a typical European buffet.

    We were very upset to see other guests treated disrespectfully by staff in the breakfast room. Rude and racist comments were directed at a guest wearing a burqua. The staff member scolded her for sitting at a table that was set for lunch rather than breakfast (in the breakfast room), said it was "always the same story with you people" and that she needed to "open her eyes".

    Upon arrival the hotel was very accommodating in our request to move to a larger room.

    - Wifi is super bad: every level have its own network which do not transfer connection automatically when you move to / from your room, you have to enter password every time. WiFi connection is slow and not steady. - No power sockets in the room: if you want to charge your devise you have to keep it all the time in your hand and stay near to entry door (where the only power socket located) or disconnect TV or Fridge to get spare socket - fan in the bathroom is VERY NOISY and stop operation only after 10-15 minutes you switch off light there. This is VERY annoying! - Too many flies on the breakfast area - Instructions for the safe box are incorrect in a Hotel guide.

    The building is old enough, so some room facilities could have been better.

    We were at the property early, but the staff was very helpful and let us in around 11AM. The building is right at the lake with just a brilliant lake view! Big double bed and a sofa in the room. Restaurant onsite offers diverse menu, quite expensive though.

    The hotel needs renovation. The room stinks. The breakfast was very limited and the fruits were not fresh.

    Very very nice location with direct view on the lake. The surrounding area is magnificent. Fast WiFi. Maybe these are the only positive points in this hotel.

    1. This is a family operated hotel with very few staff, so there seems to be a chronic understaffing, especially when the restaurant and front desk staff is the same. 2. Sometimes, some of the staff was impatient, and even rude ! The customer must be treated politely, even if sometimes they act irrationally. 3. During our stay the temperatures where very high (33 degrees Celsius and more) so the lack of air-conditioning was very unpleasant. 4. Our initial room (30) was very small and not properly ventilated, so we moved to a bigger and more expensive room (15), but this was hotter (south side) and noisier (close to the restaurant balcony 5. In most rooms (our group had 3 rooms) there is a shortage of electrical outlets.

    1. The location. 2. The lake view from the rooms.

    Nothing to dislike.

    The Strand Hotel met ALL our expectations, our room on the 3rd Floor overlooked Lake Brienz and had sunshine afternoon and morning too on the balcony. Very comfortable bed and all facilities excellent. The restaurant was divine and food superb. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We WILL return, thank you !!

    Wooden pillow box dreadful to sleep on even though memory foam bed and duck feather quilt pleasant. Cleaner forgot to renew essentials.

    Fab views. Central location in small town. Beer cheaper than elsewhere. Lovely lakeside cafe and restaurant. No traffic noise at night - bliss! Breakfast staff lovely - second helpings coffee without asking. Free hotel bus pass - doesnt work on pricey boats though. God bus service to interlaken. Small shop near hotel for food.

    Room adequate, double bed was two singles pushed together,uncomfortable, mattress old and needs replacing, pillows were a joke. Balcony very small, as was bathroom, mini bar fridge inoperative,wifi worked OK but thrown off numerous times. Hotel understaffed,service slow, customers served in no apparent order. Female proprietor was indifferent, off hand, and patronising. Hotel decor was old and tired.

    Superb location, fantastic views, good car parking, very clean, food OK, staff overall friendly and polite, (they certainly earn their money). Excellent water pressure in shower. Breakfast good.

    Horrible Wifi...can't count on it at all. And sadly would recommend going elsewhere (maybe Bellevue) for dinner.

    Love the location IF you have a room on the lake.

    Restaurant at hotel closed for dinner Mon & Tues nights. This should be noted on the web site as the restaurant on site was one of the reasons we chose this hotel. The staff gave us local options which were excellent.

    Room was a bit dated but clean and adequate. Slight smell of smoke in the room, even though smoking was only allowed on balcony. Smell dissipated quickly when windows were opened.

    Very pleased with the beautiful lake views, especially from corner room. Located adjacent to ferry wharf. Lift available.
