Hotel Friedheim, where you go because you like Swiss precision, peace and quiet, ample parking space and cleanness. But you mainly go there for Mount Rigi, with its stunning views and walks and because it costs you the price of a decent mortgage to pay a hotel on the Mount itself. And honestly, the views from Hotel Friedheim on both the lake and the Mount are equally stunning, you even get to park you car AND swim in the Lake, for FREEEEEEE !
So at least we got the feeling Switzerland was expensive but without the need of being oil billionaire or equivalent.

We found the Hotel Friedheim when we were looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Weggis. The price is fairly low because the hotel is set back on a mountain rise about two blocks from Lake Luzern. However, the location proved superb, partly because our room afforded magnificent views of the lake and mountains and partly because we trotted less than five minutes to the town beach -- definately the best place to swim in Lake Luzern because of both the facilities (indoor pool, water trampoline, restaurant, floats, large grassy area and more) and the water temperature, which is unusually warm. The hotel is spotless and decorated with tasteful touches here and there, such as an antique silver water pitcher on a hallway table . The rooms are lovely.
The hosts are friendly and helpful. Our only regrets were that we could not stay longer and were two jet lagged to choose to eat in the dining room.

We arrived at 17:20 to find reception closed and the building in which it was located locked up.

This building also housed the bar and restaurant; also closed, despite being told that they were fully available seven days per week.

Apparently all three are closed every Tuesday and Wednesday.

This would be acceptable if we were booking a CHF 50 a night hostel, but this was a CHF 275 a night hotel.

In all our years of travelling, were have never experienced this before.

Then, after finding the key on an outside table, the room were were allocated was nothing like the rooms shown on the web site we booked through. The building was old, smelt of decay and was in serious need of renovation. The furniture was old, smelt and there was no AC.

We might not have minded so much if we had been asked to pay a reasonable rate, but this was a premium rate room that was nowhere near premium.

Although we originally intended to stay four days, we checked out immediately the next morning a found a far better hotel at a similar rate a kilometre away, right on Lake Lucerne.

To be avoided . . .

This hotel was suggested to us by Swiss friends who had unfortunately not actually visted themselves first. The hotel website craftily fails to mention that far from being innocently 'just above the village' it is in the midst of a housing estate and that lake views are indeed to be had (at increased prices) - right over the car park. Neither do they bother to mention that they are currently creating a new block and that there is a building site 20 yards from the hotel which gets going at 7 am. The 'superior' room had a bathroom door that did not fit and a claustrophobically low ceiling. Dull and boring inside. I dare say the food is great, but we got as far away as possible as soon as possible.

A lovely hotel in a lovely part of Switzerland. Everyone is really nice including the very friendly chef Freddie. The food is AMAZING, and the rooms are lovely with lovely beds and nice bathrooms. Good value with good links to Lucerne and regular trips round lake Lucerne. I would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone traveling in Weggis.

The chef is Fredi Zimmermannn 3rd generation owner of the hotel. An outstanding and imaginative chef. This is where the chefs from the other Weggis hotels gather for a monthly meal. Ask for his Toast 'William'.for an after maincourse treat
.
The hotel was voted 'Most Friendly hotel in Switzerland' in 2004 by the Gastronomic Society of Switzerland, hotel category.

Ask Denise Zimmermann, hotel manager for instructions on travel to the hotel. We were planning to be in Slovenia and wanted to take a first class reserved cabin overnight train from Ljubljana to Zurich, and on to Luzern.No railway information source in North America or Eurorail could help us, even after visiting Eurorail offices in London, England. Denise Zimmermann made all the arrangements and reservations in less that half an hour, including the time of the boat from Luzern to Weggis. We were met at the dock in Weggis and transported (3mins) to our rooms
.
Don't miss the dining room!

The Friedheim has changed since our last visit. The hotel is now split into two buildings. The new half can be noisy and very hot. One couple had to be moved, while we were there, as Japanese residents were loudly on mobiles at 4am. The old building is now somewhat tired and isolated but much quieter.The main income seems to come from the restaurant and is very popular with locals. We felt the hotel was now more of a side 'issue'. The food is good, except for breakfast with the same watermelon, cornflakes and breads every day ( when the local markets offer such a choice of fruits) . However you are now charged for a jug of water.at the table in the evening., 6 CHF a meal which adds up if you are there for 5 days as we were ( £25) and made us very cross. You are not told when ordering your meal and wine etc only when you settle the hotel bill at the end of the holiday. Seemingly the money goes to charity, admirable, but it is their choice to support local charities not ours and it would have been courteous to have been forewarned
Weggis and the mountains are still gorgeous however. and Luzern a must to visit

The room was unbearably hot. Windows had automatic closing so we could not open to reduce the heat and were miserable. Staff really did not care about our comfort. For the price I think that ventilation should be provided and when its hot the windows stay open.

Stayed here for a night in summer, the views from the terrace over the lake are absolutely stunning and worth staying here for that alone.

Thankfully the staff are really helpful, the rooms really spacious and well decorated which means even on a cloudy winters day it'd be well worth a stay!

Breakfast was great after a very comfortable sleep. The blinds took a bit of working out to open the windows mind, but a great stay
