Stayed with a group so was stuck with what I was given - not the tour operator's fault. Small dark very noisy (especially in the late evening) double room at the front. Not even enough room to put up the luggage rack. No view, everything obscured by a very large tree. Lack of power points. Balcony with table but no chair. No imagination with menus. Food OK, but nothing special. Disgusting chemical dessert one evening. I understand the rooms at the back are very nice.

Not enough staff, but they are very friendly and helpful. The WiFi was very reliable and quite fast.

The hotel is undergoing renovations and there is lots of scaffolding. I think my room had been done because the walk in shower was modern. Its reputation to fame as being where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stayed does nothing to remedy the dated, tired, interior. It is probably the same as when he was there.

Its saving grace is that it is clean and tidy.

Room Tip: Don't take a room at the front.

We stayed here with a group of friends for a weekend in February. As we haven't had much snow, the hotel was not very busy at the weekend we were there.
The hotel is very grand, but also unfortunately dated. The manager (who was only there during the day) was very helpful and forthcoming, unfortunately they were very understaffed. The tables were not set at breakfast, the bar was closed (apparently Wednesday-Sunday according to the sign), there was no one available at reception in the evening. there were no kettles in the rooms, our blinds were broken....I could go on but I won't bore you.
Long story short: it was once a grand hotel I am sure, and could be grand again, but needs a major renovation (start with the bathrooms!) and more staff to really meet the standard of a 4 star hotel.
On a positive note: the rooms were clean and spacious, the beds were very comfortable! As already mentioned, the young lady working at reception was very friendly and helpful.

I must declare I stayed here because I was having a Sherlock Holmes moment In Meiringen. We walked from the train station through the village and down Bahnhofstrasse to this fine old hotel – together with scaffolding out the back. The reception guy at the hotel had an eccentric sense of humour but got us to our rooms that were very good with views of the mountains as requested and gave us excellent advice on a place for dinner that evening. The hotel itself was the one where Conan Doyle stayed when writing of the death of Holmes and Moriarty at the Bad Reichenbach Falls nearby. In the novel he referred to this hotel as the Englischer Hof, as referred to by a brass plaque at the front of the hotel. Our first port of call was to the Sherlock Holmes Museum next door to the hotel and the dinner that night at the Victoria Restaurant was the best we had in Switzerland.
We had drinks out the back of the hotel with the mountains as the backdrop. A pleasant stay.
If you are not into Conan Doyle and his period then the hotel would be a little more anachronistic.

Stayed at this hotel while on a Great Rail Journey. On first impression, hotel seems fine but afraid that this not born out by experience. Everywhere are signs of lack of maintenance and investment. Our room is great, almost a junior suite, but a piece of skirting board is missing. The shaver socket in the bathroom is covered by a piece of duct tape. Now, the fridge has stopped working properly.

In the dining room at breakfast, there is one two slot toaster for 50-60 guests. Food runs out and staff have to be chased to replenish items.

The hotel proudly displays 4 stars on its facade, unfortunately I think that they are kidding themselves.

This is a very nice traditional hotel, with history relating to the Sherlock Holmes stories.
Just a short walk from the station and the cable car to Alpen Tower.
The décor is really lovely, reflecting the Belle Epoque era. The dining room is large and grand with the same lovely décor.
We were delighted with our room which was spacious with a gorgeous view of the mountains, and at night, the mountain was lit up with a Sherlock Holmes silhouette.
The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in for a long time in a hotel !
We had a good selection of food for breakfast, and our meal in the evening was of limited choice, but always tasty and substantial.
Waiting staff were hard working and pleasant.
Having read some negative reviews, I was apprehensive of staying here, but need not have worried at all. We had a great stay, and I would certainly return.
Thanks Hotel du Sauvage.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have terrific mountain views and the direction of the Reichenbach falls.
