Hotel was selected for its location and price(expensive for what it is but for Interlaken less so).When we arrived there was no reception area simply a busy bar. However the manager? /waitress was particularly good and by the time I parked the car 200yds away all the luggage was in the room.Sraight down for a drink on the small terrace and the view of the Jungfrau and Monch was tremendous with the milky turquoise river linking the two lakes in the foreground. I doubt if many other hotels had a better view.
However the terrace is divided in two by the entrance and there seemed to be an informal arrangement tht the locals used the right and guests the left. Looked interesting but no way were the regulars going to talk to the guests despite many attempts at "hello" etc.No problem until the one waitress sat with the locals for conversation and a cigarette.
The regulars were there every time we used the restaurant or bar including breakfast and were the last to leave at midnight. At one point when having our evening meal five card players decided there was not enough room on the right and moved to "our side" and literally shoved us along without any word spoken. That happened to be the meal when we were charged 13 CHF for an extra plate of hash browns. We did not eat there again and found the Cafe de Paris in town (interlaken) 300yds away in the centre.
Bedroom OK but bathroom tiny with small shower cubicle plus if went to bed before 12 had to close the windows to keep out the noise of the locals.
