    Only slight issue is that the room is a little warm (even in early spring) as there does not appear to be air any conditioning.

    Very nice accommodation with excellent, helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant was delightful. Well situated within Liestal and the free travel pass for the weekend was also very useful.

    The illumination of the hotel front was on until about 2:00. It shines directly into the room windows and makes it seem like daylight. Nice big spiderwebs outside the window! The single room had a single bed, which was positioned perpendicular to the TV. How is one supposed to watch TV that way? Put a little more thought into your room design! The morning reception attendant could be a little friendlier. No good mornings, no hello. Just: "I'll be right with you".

    Excellent location. Good breakfast.

    I have stayed at the hotel Engel quite a few times but this time it was a little disappointing. The room was not really very nice, there were marks on the carpet, the air vent on the wall above the bed was really dusty, there was no spoon to stir tea or coffee. The room was also very noisy even with the window closed. The hotel is expensive and in the past I have always had a nice room, this is the first time I have felt the hotel was not excellent. The car park under the hotel is also very expensive it is better to pay at Migros who share the car park than at the hotel reception.

    The staff were friendly and the breakfast excellent.

    Some mosquito nets on the windows are needed to fend off bugs.

    It was very easy to check in. We booked the hotel with the mobile app from Booking.com and arrived an hour later at the hotel. The staff, same person who was doing the check-in, had almost made the rooms ready for us before we arrived. 30 minutes and bus full of new guests, who needed to be checked-in, later, our rooms were ready. Impressive. The two rooms of which one was divided over two floors, had an extra door which secured the access to both rooms.

    When we arrived the booking system of the hotel wasn't aligned with Booking.com. Staff at reception told us we had to pay another time, after showing them the confirmation email of Booking.com we received plus the money transfer on my bank account. In the end they fixed their own problem but it wasn't a great welcome.... Plus the bin in the room wasn't cleaned.

    Confusing situation with the lifts. The main lift to the rooms was out of order, there was no access back to rooms from the staircase and the service lift had a big sign on it saying that guests were not allowed to use it. Lots of confused guests wandering around after breakfast trying to work out how to get back to their rooms. This happened every day - someone should have solved the problem with better signage after the first day.

    Staff - really kind, helpful and charming. They make a fairly standard hotel special. Room spacious and pleasant. Good breakfast.

    We like to keep fit, so not to be able to walk up the stairs back to our room was disappointing. Why not have a door key reader at the bottom of the stairs, to prevent unauthorised people going upstairs?

    This was a good place for our overnight stop as we passed through Switzerland. Nice spacious room and bathroom, good breakfast and we had a good evening meal in the restaurant. Multi-storey car park right next door a real bonus, especially in winter.

    There is no air conditioning - which probably is ok most of the year, but not in summer time during a heat wave. Parking is expensive. There is a construction site right next to the hotel this summer (2015) and due to the heat wave, they start working at 6:30am.

    This is a nice hotel to stay at - maybe not in the midst of a heat wave. Even though the hotel staff was sweet and provided us with two fans, the heat in the room was almost unbearable. The hotel has a small work out area and the breakfast is fantastic. It's also located in the midst of a charming little "fortress town". I'd go back in a heartbeat, when the weather gets cooler again.
