Nice surroundings with a well maintained castle. It is located quite far from the main attractions in Murten old town (30 min walk) and you need a car. The guest house has very small rooms hence ok-ish for one night. Not more. The breakfast is simple and also ok.

The Schloss (palace) is an impressive building, surrounded by a very large park and garden. Most of the vegetables and lots of spices used in the kitchen are grown here. Reception and restaurant (and a few rather expensive rooms) are in this main building. The restaurant is great - excellent food, good wines, very good breakfast. Our rooms were located in the new "Guesthouse" - rooms quite small, VERY small bathrooms. But it was quite sufficient for just 1 night. Would go there again any time!

Stayed here for 1 night on a recent trip to Switzerland. The building looks beautiful from the outside. The lobby and restaurant / breakfast areas look great too. My room was in the guesthouse whi h is a separate building. The room was quite small but was fine for one night. The bed was small but comfortable. Breakfast was very nice and all of the staff I met were very helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent but a little bit expensive. Patrick in the restaurant was very helpful and was an excellent server.

Amazing place to stay over for a night, or maybe longer. It kind of looks like a fairytale place, up in the hills. It's lovely to eat or have a drink on the outside terrace or just find yourself a spot somewhere in the garden around the fountain. It's very quiet and lovely and I would definitely recommend it.

The hotel is located in a historic building which is on the St. Jacob’s pilgrimage way. During medieval times it was used by traveling monks and has a church built in as part of the castle. Sadly, during a poorly designed restauration project the church was “modernised” and lost its historic charm. What’s fare worse, there is an “artistic installation” in the church – a sculpture made of trash objects looking offensive. It looks ugly and wholly inappropriate in the church. Some spiritual guests may even find it insulting to their religious feelings. It is sad that this feature overshadows the good work done by the hotel staff to make guests feel welcome.

Lieber Alexander B Vielen Dank für Ihre Rückmeldung. Es tut uns leid, dass Ihnen die "Kunst am Bau", welche vom Besitzer, dem Kanton Bern ausgesucht und in der Kirche platziert wurde, so gar nicht gefallen hat. Leider können wir diese nicht wegnehmen, da sie zum Haus dazugehört. Es freut uns, dass Sie die Arbeit der Mitarbeiter geschätzt haben. Danke. Freundliche Grüsse Brigit Leicht und Schlossteam

We arrived at 6pm. No one at reception, searched 20 minutes for help, got an abrupt greeting like we were intruding. NO WIFI in room. NO English TV stations ( room 202). NO English information at all. Basic twin room is a shoebox with to twin beds against one wall.

Guten Tag HollyGrounds Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Sie haben Recht wir fokussieren uns auf die Sprachen Deutsch und Französisch. Das WIFI wird in den nächsten Tagen adaptiert und sollte dann problemlos funktionieren. Da hatten wir ein Problem. Und Sie haben auch Recht, dass unsere Zweibettzimmer klein sind. Wir weisen immer wieder darauf hin, dass es so ist. Da das Gästehaus als klösterliche Herberge gebaut wurde war das die Absicht des Architekten. Wir bedauern, wenn wir Ihren Erwartungen an unser Haus nicht gerecht werden konnten. Freundliche Grüsse Brigit Leicht, Heinz Blattmann und Schlossteam

This is a beautifully restored and enhanced old "castle" with a lot of charm. The property and setting are stunning and the food served here is quite good. The big letdown is with the hotel rooms. The place's monastery past comes through here. Comments about the rooms being reminiscent of college dorm rooms are appropriate. Small, very basic, cheaply furnished rooms with plain white walls make the room rates way too expensive for what they are.

Dear DrillerBurlington We thank you for taking the time and effort to write about our hotel. You are very right, that in the rooms of our Guesthouse the monastery past comes through and this is made purposely. We agree that the rooms are small and basic. They are not cheaply furnished as everything is really high quality material and made-to-measure. We know that not everybody can appreciate a room with plain white walls, but this is the monastery experience of simplicity, which we want to keep. Thanks fr your feedback Brigit Leicht, Heinz Blattmann and Team

Since four years, we visit regularly this close to 1’000 years old castle. Our friends and customers always appreciated the residence as well as the restaurant. As you enter the property through the great park, you’ll be surprised by its set-up, maintenance and the amount of trees; some of them could tell you a story, as they are over 200 years old. With 2.5 km (1.5 miles) or a 5 minutes’ drive away from the medieval city of Murten or Morat, it is a place to wind down and where you may come to peace. The restaurant serves exceptional vegetarian, meat and fish meals. Their wine-list is well chosen with some very good Swiss wines that most people do not really know. The service is friendly and professional. Regarding the rooms, my favourites are the rooms in the castle itself. They have all been renovated and upgraded. They are only four rooms plus the splendid tower suite that is the ideal room to surprise your partner, but reserve it well in advance. They are another 35 rooms in the so called guesthouse. The rooms there are smaller but cosy, pleasant and functional with all what you need to enjoy a quiet night on a castle’s land. Read about its history and see the pictures on their homepage.

This is a lovely looking hotel with a fantastic country background view of the Swiss countryside and the main hotel building was a nice mix of old castle features along with modern flooring/stairs. The meals were fine and the bar area were of good standard however the rooms themselves were very 'pre-fabricated' and felt more like a hostel than a hotel. I had to jam a napkin in the door to stop it rattling all night. The shower worked well and the bed was comfortable but the appearance was strange.

Sehr geehrter Nick D Danke, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben und unser Hotel bewertet haben. Wir sind uns bewusst, dass das Gästehaus (Nebengebäude des Schloss) als "klösterliche Herberge" gebaut wurde und von den Gästen auch so empfunden wird. Dies passt zur Geschichte des Schloss Münchenwiler, da es ursprünglich ein Kloster war. Die Zimmer sind einfach, funktionell und klein. Es tut uns leid, dass wir hier Ihren Erwartungen nicht gerecht werden konnten. Schön, dass es Ihnen sonst gut gefallen hat. Ihre Brigit Leicht und Heinz Blattmann mit Schlossteam
