So we arrive at the resort an hour early after a very long trip and sat in the lobby until our room is ready, it took them 2 hours to prepare the room for us, our check-in experience was very bad, they didn’t explain anything about the hotel, it facilities or the restaurants they even didn’t guide us to our room we had to find our way.

The room was not clean at all and wasn’t a 5 star resort standard, the housekeeping cleaned our room only once a day which in no acceptable. We had to ask for toilet amenities every time.

In the lobby we met two groups of people that were complaining about the service. And we met another group of Hotel guests that told us about all the activities around the area and told us about the “B-outdoor activities” where they arrange all the activities for you. - this was the hotel’s job to tell us about it not the guests. If the hotel didn’t promote their services who would!!!!

After our visit to the b-outdoor activities, we saw a big range of different activities around the area. We arranged for paragliding, a visit Pilatus mountain & Lucerne and a visit to a local farm.

You also could enjoy a walk around the area or cycle around. Make sure your visit the Hammetschwand Elevator, which was built in 1905 by Franz Joseph Bucher built to impress his guests at Bürgenstock, It took 5 years to build the lift and the pathway. It’s is the highest outdoor life in Europe.

The hotel has a funicular that takes you directly to a pier where you can take a boat to Lucerne, and you don’t have to pay anything if you are a guest in the hotel.

The hotel has a nice range of restaurants from Asian to middle eastern, make sure you book in advance to get a table. The lobby has nice view of the lake as well as the terrace bar.

I would double think before I book in this resort, they need more staff and they need to step up their services.

Beautiful views, great food, and great service!

If you want a place where you can take in the breathtaking views of Switzerland and have a great meal, the Taverne 1879 is it. The beer was delicious as was our plentiful meat and cheese appetizer. Thanks to Luisa for her friendly service and making our experience there a moment to remember.

We stayed two nights in June 2013 (out of season) for a christening held nearby. It is high up and out of season there is not much else going on at the resort. There is a town at the bottom of the hill (Stans) so as long as you have a car you are fine. We had one dinner there and it was very good. Staff were friendly and generally English speaking. The views are fabulous and we woke to sounds of cow bells and birds. The rooms are modern with a simple décor. Free wi-fi. The breakfast was a little limited (continental style) but we were about the only ones at the hotel at the time - it was still enough for us. Note there is no lift - it is a 2 storey building.

if you are interested by the future of hotels in Switzerland, pay a visit to the Buergenstock, the location stays amazing years after years but recently investors are spending millions to renovate, build, developp a new outstanding hotel site. the taverne hotel has been renovated first and the rooms are nice and cosy,
the rooms are fairly small but the nice wood floor and furniture leaves you with a good impression

Right at the beginning we were slammed with a surcharge of CHF 100 per person per day for the spa and 40 per night for parking. This was a big disappointment right at the begining of our stay: the hotel is advertised online with impressive pictures of the spa and pool and only at the entrance you find out there's such a steep surcharge. Even though there is a mentioning of a surcharge online, you would expect a small amount. This feels highly misleading and it was very disappointing overall.

Dear Daydream19024795475 Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay among us. Your feedback is much appreciated. We regret that your stay did not meet your expectations. To avoid such kind of misunderstanding we clearly state in all descriptions for all room types the surcharge for Spa access of 100 CHF as a hotel guest of Taverne 1879. Further we recommend the breathtaking arrival by boat and funicular which is included in the room rate for all of our hotel guest. We hope you give us another chance to fulfill your expectations. Kind regards, Robert Herr General Manager

Classic swiss restaurant more than 100 years on the place furnished with vintage wooden chalet furniture. Less than 5 minutes walk from Burgenstock Alpina resort and SPA.
We tried Salad "Taverne", main course from mushrooms and grated potatoes & for desert
"Meringue Gruyere". All good. Nice local cuisine. Not expensive. Nice service.

Stayed at the resort in a 2 bedroom Suite in the Hotel. The Hotel itself has a variety of Hotels to suit different budgets and standards. Our room in the Hotel was amazing siting in the window alcove just taking in the scenery of the Swiss Alps, you could be lost for days. All amenities at the Hotel at to perfection, from Cinema room screenings, kids clubs and a variety of restaurants. We had dinner at Spices the first night, food adequate service below par. The second night, was Oak Grill. Food and service were amazing.
Overall this Hotel is absolutely breathtaking, however I can see why the service falls short after now staying. The Swiss seem to have a blunt approach without polish. Once you come to terms with this and put I behind you it’s a ticket off the bucket list. Oh, and the pools 👌

Wandered past here around 10.00am looking for a coffee & chap who seemed to be at the helm pointed us in the right direction for coffee & advised us to book here if we wanted to come back for lunch. When we returned we were treated to a super table with a lovely vista over the meadows & mountains alongside good, professional service & great traditional Swiss food.
Great job thanks guys.
A tip to pass on to Burgenstock management - given the explosion in the number of coffee shops in most places in recent years, can’t believe how difficult it was to get a coffee in Burgenstock at 10.00 am !!
