This is a really nice traditional Swiss chalet in a lovely lake location. The location would be perfect if you like to hike or climb the nearby mountain, or chill. For me it wasn’t as great as I needed to be in Lucerne each day for tours leaving from there, and there’s only 1 train an hour (31 min past the hour). Also on a story day there was no train at all and buses are scarce - it cost me 20 Swiss francs to take a 7 min taxi ride 10km. So I should have stayed in Lucerne but I was misled by Expedia. The note about the hotel said that they arrange airport shuttles, so I assumed transportation was more sophisticated. Beware: they don’t arrange anything like that. The room was lovely, if very dark. Very large, 4 beds and loads of space. The creaky floors were a problem as I was awaken throughout you the night and early morning - at one point the noisy floorboards made me sure that there was someone in the room with me! The restaurant was ok but extremely expensive - beware the cost of whiskey, the priciest I have ever paid! Food was ok, not fantastic. Service was ok, uneven. One waiter being lovely, the girl who originally saw me being horrible. When I arrived there was a palaver as the girl at reception couldn’t find my booking. She wasn’t very polite. Eventually all was well, but it spoiled my first impression. The hotel arranged a taxi for me from Meggen on the day there were no trains. They also allowed me to check out a little late.
