Overall I can only give this hotel a 2/5. Location: Beautiful but kind of remote. You are right on the lake, so great sunsets, beautiful scenery and its very peaceful. Remote - More than an hour from Lucerne driving, ferry is also about 1hr. Interlaken is about 2.5 to 3hrs drive due to traffic and small roads. Ferry without a pass is about 60 CHF round trip to Lucerne, so quite pricey. Staff: Overall: Very helpful and friendly, no problems. Food: We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. Breakfast was very good, with a good selection. Dinner we felt it was overpriced for what it was, you would average around $75 - $100 pp without alcohol. There are also very limited options in the village unless you want to drive. There is a grocery store across the street that you can pick up snacks and other things which is useful. Parking: Decent parking at the hotel at 10 CHF per night. Room: This is where the main issue was. The room overall is quite small, though very clean and well appointed. We had an upgraded room with a patio overlooking the lake. The doors to the patio couldn't be opened fully as the bed was in the way. There is no A/C in the room due to the hotel being a historic building. We stayed at the hotel in early September 2023, it was around 85F / 29C in the daytime with a humidity of around 75%. The lakeview rooms get full sun from around 1pm till 7.30pm in early September, which means they are literally unbearable from about 3pm. The hotel does provide a fan, but it's not really useful when inside the room the temperature was reading 91F/ 33C. This is a big problem as the hotel isn't a low end establishment and we expected better. In addition, as the evening comes in, there was a high amount of mosquitos (due to the lake) which if you leave the doors open, you will be eaten alive, this adds to the problem with an already hot room. If there was some kind of bug screen this would have really helped as there is no other way to cool the room down. Overall, we were happy to leave, even though the views and location are spectacular and staff very accommodating. The problems with the room are too much based on this price point.

This hotel was absolutely wonderful. The lobby and outdoor areas are second to none. Breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. We used the complimentary paddle boards and outdoor pool. Could not get a reservation at the panorama restaurant which looked amazing. Rooms are small, no air conditioning is available, but I would recommend and stay again in a heartbeat. Request a balcony room!

The hotel is just gorgeous and the hotel staff were so helpful! We were traveling with our toddler and they helped arrange car transfers with car seats and babysitting for us. The breakfast is maybe the best hotel breakfast I've ever had. There's swimming on the property but also a public park 5 minutes away that has good swimming for kids and a restaurant! We went to a wedding on the property and it was gorgeous!

Amazing place in a stunning location. We enjoyed every moment of our short stay. The beautiful historic building with its garden is situated right at the lake so we jumped into the cool water as we came from a hike. What an experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. We‘ll be back.

This is an exceptional hotel. The setting, the decor and all the facilities are excellent and the staff are all friendly, well trained and efficient. Breakfasts are delicious and healthy, and we loved our dinners at the pop-up Ibiza restaurant and the hotel restaurant on the lake. This was our second visit and we will be back!

An antique beautiful hotel overlooking and with access to the lake. I visited on mid-June and to my surprise the hotel has no air conditioning. Days and nights were already warm but nights get fresher and wouldn’t be a problem we could adapt to opening the windows only that our room windows connected to the street where noisy cars and trucks drive by at all hours. On top of that, Hotel management celebrated a party for staff on the night of our Sunday stay, and the loud music and employees were a true nightmare on a hot night, no A/C and disturbance till past midnight. Management listened to my complaint, assigned another room that was as street loud and hot, and released our night charge, however, there’s no compensation for one sleepless night.

Dear Guest, Warm Regards from Lake Lucerne! Thank you for visiting us at the hotel Vitznauerhof and for sharing your personal impressions.

Unfortunately, the situation regarding the air conditioning cannot be changed, as we have not received any approval for the construction of air conditioning for reasons of monument protection. However, we do provide fans in each room. Regarding the noise, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We would be very happy to see you again soon and a second chance associated with it.

Beautifully situated on the lake, the hotel makes the most of it. Great service too. It was the adjacent restaurant, Sens, which brought us here and the whole experience was memorable. Although Vitznau is a short ferry ride from Lucerne it feels a world away. We shortened our stay in Lucerne by a day to stay in the Vitznauerhof and would have gladly extended our stay had time allowed.
