Situated on the lakeside of Lucerne, in a very quiet environment, the staff was kind , the breakfast was good, there's a free parking. The view of the lake is great especially in the morning while having the breakfast on the terrace .

This honestly has the best view of Lake Luzern by far. However there is no air conditioning and aver thing is an Homage to the 1980's. The food in the restaurant is alright but not worth the price so we went into town. There is a pool and a mini beach, just imagine something pathetic out of the 1960's and... More

Beautiful location right on the shore of the lake - wonderful view from our balcony. Quite isolated, which is fine if you are travelling by car. Very large and comfortable room. Small but adequate bathroom though the towels could be bigger! Large and comfortable bed - we loved the pillows, which is very unusual in a hotel. Very good breakfast... More

Big, clean and nice room and bathroom. The city center is nearby, and you can go by public transport if you want or by your own car. The breakfast (buffet) is good.Enough variety. Staff is very friendly, although I was a little bit disappointed in the fact that staff (receptionist) did not react on leaving guests who were shouting and... More

Had an overnight stay at the Kastanienbaum hotel on 23 June 2013. I normally stay at the Rigiblik or the Winkelried hotels however these were unavailable for this visit. Taxi from the airfield at Bouchs to the hotel came in at 100 Swiss francs...........at least Dick Turpin wore a mask.........(British highwayman who robbed travellers) The hotel staff were pleasant, considerate...

I stayed there 7 times in 2011 and 2012. The rooms are nicely equipped, modern design, nice baths. The lakeside rooms have an amazing view at sunrise. Never had lunch or dinner there, but breakfast was always very good. Great choice of dishes, and you can order coffee, tea and different types of eggs & omlets to be made fresh.... More

The view is stunning, food is more than excellent but disagreeable service. Nobody could speak any Swiss German (only German from Germany) and they looked bothered every time we asked for something. The only table decoration was a plastic rose in a glass... really disappointing knowing how renowned this place is in Switzerland.

The hotel is wonderful in all aspects, especially the location - it's on the lake and the view from the room was breathtaking... Very nice staff, great room and good breakfast.

The hotel is beautifully situated a few miles past Lucerne. We had a delightful balcony overlooking the lake, which is of course framed by majestic mountains. The welcome we received was friendly and good advice was available on what to do locally, including the boats that take you to the mountain railway at Mount Pilatus or the trips into Lucerne....
