Very nice hotel, large rooms with huge windows. We did not have a lake view, but one of Mount Pilatus, which to my mind was just as good. The bathroom is looking a little old, in need of an update, but otherwise the facilities were good. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, and stunning views over the lake. The prices...

It was beautiful and amazing experience for me. Room view was the lake Luzern and the sunrise was amazing just behind the snow filled mountains. Breakfast was excellent choices. Lots of cheese variety.

The Seehotel Pilatus was an easy walk from the Hergiswil train station. The warm greeting at reception with welcome juice and upgrade put us instantly at ease and ready to relax. Since the hotel is historic and has sustained many updates over the years, the result is necessarily kind of a hodge-podge. The dining area is rustic, woody, and charming...

This hotel is in a peaceful town, away from any nightlife, but a 10 min drive from the busier resort of Lucerne. Lakeside views are better, but views from the front of Mount Pilatus are stunning also. Staff very friendly,food excellent, and a lakeside view to die for. Would happily retire there !!!

Booked a short 4 day break and it was so good that we wished we were staying longer. Lovely lake view room, excellent food and a great fitness centre and pool. The lake is always there for a swim and the steamers to and from Luzern call 100 yards away. Easy access to the station and trains to the foot...

Very first class hotel, easy disabled access and is wheelchair friendly ... Lift to all floors, use of swimming pool and gym, also swim in the lake, but was not safe for disabled people like myself found it too risky to use steps into the lake but was happy with the indoor swimming pool and spa. There are one or...

First class hotel in an idyllic location, with superb pool and fitness facilities. Food and service excellent. Within easy access of some stunning and variety of different scenery, with the Eiger and Jungfrau not far. Trip up Mount Pilatus behind the hotel is something not to miss. One of our best locations yet with the city of Lucerne worth a...

We discovered that if you book directly with the hotel instead of other websites - you get a better rate, and we had a good value for money, luxurious, battery recharging break. The staff were friendly, the prices of meals in the restaurant were fair, the wellness suite great and the rooms ample and clean. But if course, the best...

Hotel is in a fantastic position next to the lake. We were lucky to have a room with a balcony and lake view. Although our room was in the original old building our room was very modern and comfortable. Stayed half board (Majestic coach tour), food was good, two choices of main course and desert. Restaurant staff were very helpful....

Before you check in, you are give a long list of rules on how to use the bathroom. Especially if you are staying at the old side of the hotel. The front desk big woman with eyeglasses, is very cold and borderline rude. Which is very unfortunate, because days later, I met the owner who is so warm and nice....
