This is a lovely hotel with very pleasant rooms and very good wifi. The bathroom was a little small but despite being a small shower cubicle, the shower was a good one.

Just wanted to say that we enjoyed a very nice Sunday lunch today at the Gasthof Lowen in Melchnau. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves the traditional large Bernese portions, so a half portion starter is advised!

Hotel is new and very clean, Restaurant is superb. Basic rooms with facilities and free WIFI. Owner-operators are very friendly and hospitable. Melchnau is in the middle of nowhere, abould half way between Basel and Lucerne. Not on main roads. Use a GPS to get there.
