Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel occupies a stunning park setting overlooking the Thuner See. We had a spacious twin aspect room with a large shower room and balcony. The hotel was very welcoming and had a relaxed atmosphere. The reception staff were very warm and helpful and provided options and advice for daytime visits/excursions. The breakfast was very extensive. We would have liked a few more cooked breakfast options but this was not essential given the overall choice available. The spa occupies an exceptional location and very calming and relaxing space together with views beyond the lake to the surrounding mountains. The grounds adjoin the lake and provide a beautiful open space and setting. We would certainly wish to re-visit when next in the area - all in all a very comfortable hotel.

Although the weather was windy and rainy we spent a wonderful short trip in the parkhotel. Especially the spirit of the people was outstanding. Very friendly, very good athmosphere. We really felt as guests! On the other hand the hotel has a fantastic infrastructure. Old but well preserved. The spa in the boathouse at the shore of the lake offers not only perfect views to the alps but also a direct access to the lake. A cold water pool of its own! The quality of the food is very good. We had dinner with a starter and a main course. Both were very well arranged and tasty. Unfortnate and this is the only sad point it took too much time to serve the maine course.

We stayed in a suit for 4 adults, we were 3, the room is very clean and lot of space, workers are very nice and gentle, good reception, free car parking area for residents.
Breakfast was very good, although there are few varieties, but delicious and nice.
There is a very spectacular park in the backyard, facing the lake with a very beautiful site.
A very wide bath with a shower and bathtub,the bad thing about bathroom is that the shower box is a clear glass, that you'll be visible to everyone in the room while taking your shower, the bathtub also is open to the room with no door that the others will watch you sitting there, no privacy.

This hotel is located on the shore of Lake Thun. The views are spectacular. It almost does not look real. It is a peaceful place with large garden and many places to lounge and sit. Breakfast is included and delicious. The hotel has a restaurant- with excellent and interesting dishes. I used the spa one day and had a facial and massage. Both ladies were excellent at their craft and I came out relaxed and glowing. The staff was great and a sense of humor. The room with large balcony was minimalistic but clean. The bathroom a bit tiny. The hotel building itself is a beautiful building from the early 1900‘s. I really can highly recommend a stay here.

P.S. the elevator is fast and fun!

I found this hotel on tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The hotel is a grand, stately building nestled on the very edge of Lake Thun. The village of Gunten is about 20mins bus ride from the town of Thun. While Guten has only one convenience store, a bakery and a restaurant, Thun has all the shops and amenities anyone needs and is a pretty town with two castles as well. From Thun it is an easy 30min trin trip to Bern. All the public transport connects with each other so one can travel from the Hotel to Bern one way in an hour with minimal waiting time.

The natural beauty around the hotel cannot be adequately described but it is possible to sit all day and drink it in and not have had enough. If you are feeling lazy, the hotel has a comfortable indoor lounge with games and papers or you can lie under an umbrella on a deckchair in the garden and enjoy the view. There is a large outdoor chess set in the garden and a children's playhouse as well. It is also possible to swim in the Lake. There is a fitness room with gym equipment. The breakfast room overlooks the lake making a perfect start to the day. The buffet is generous and varied. I had read some criticisms of the rooms on Tripadvisor but do not think that these were justified.The rooms were well equipped with ensuite, comfortable beds, and a tv and were diligantly serviced everyday. Many have balconies with stunning views. Wifi is available throughout the hotel for free and there is also a small library with computer and internet facilities for free. The hotel also has a classy restaurant but we went out for lunch and dinner. Most staff speak German, French and English.

There are many activities in the surrounding areas: ferry cruises on the lake, walking in the mountains, underground caves to explore, spa hotels, castles, shopping and so on. A car is helpful to get to some of the more scenic spots but public transport is very good.

This was a dream holiday location and the ideal Swiss experience. Switzerland is very expensive to visit and this hotel provided a wonderful experience at a reasonable price. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal.

The hotel has an excellent location on the lakefront of Lake Thun with beautiful views around the lake. Very handy to either Thun or Interlaken without the crowds.
The rooms were average with a small bathroom and even smaller balcony.
The low rating is predominantly due to the incredible noise at night time. This would be the nosiest hotel I've ever stayed at. The hotel does not have any air conditioning or air circulation in the rooms which means the windows have to be open. The bulk of eating and entertainment are held on the terrace and even though we were on the 2nd floor we could still hear the conversations from the tables below let alone the wedding party that went on until well after midnight. We were then woken in the morning as soon as the first people had breakfast on the terrace.
The hotel has a huge grass area facing the lake which provides a good area for relaxing in the sun or under the shade of a tree.
Overall excluding the noise, this hotel is very average for the high cost.

We spent a night at the ParkHotel in Gunten last October and were very impressed. Impressed enough to want to spend a few days there this summer - which we just did. we will go back.

This time we had a smaller room but still with lake view and the only problem we encountered had to do with the bathroom. Which was about the size of a postage stamp. We asked to be moved but the hotel was full. However the person at the desk promised that we would be moved the following day. Which we were - to a room roughly the same size with a smaller balcony but with a lovely, recently remodelled and good sized bathroom with a very nice shower. We were very happy with the room AND with the prompt reaction to our complaint.

We took the Half Board plan and found the food excellent but too much! We simply cannot eat a 4 course meal night after night anymore. Next time we will go "à la carte" for dinner. The service was perfect. It was very very hot (second heatwave of the summer) and we like rosé with ice cubes. After one evening the waitress, Corrina, brought the rosé AND the ice with no reminder! She is really top notch. There was a good variety of dishes - choice each night of meat, fish or veg - and some extremely nice salads.

The other guests in the hotel were predominantly Swiss and most from the German speaking part. (We are from French speaking Switzerland but also speak German...) There were a few foreigners - a couple of Arab families and some Chinese - but they fit right in and were very pleasant. I mention this because Gunten is not far from Interlaken which is over-run with tourists. Gunten is not. It is very very Swiss in feeling.

If you are looking for a well-run hotel with good food right on a lake in the Oberland the Parkhotel Gunten is the place to be!

Sitting on a little promontory into Lake Thun this hotel is surrounded by mountains and water - spectacular views in all directions. The restaurant service is excellent - huge [massive] servings, tasty food - and large windows to view the scenery.
Lots of free, onsite parking - including a fair selection of "carport" type garages for guests to use if you wish to shelter your car from the weather.

If you like lakes and mountains this is the hotel for you. The hotel backs right onto the lake and has nice grounds with lots of chairs to take in the stunning views of the mountains. On a sunny day it is simply heaven on earth. Definately worth getting a room with a balcony too. The hotel is also a minutes walk from the boats which service the other lakeside towns.
The bedrooms are quite basic and would benefit from a makeover and aircon but the beds are comfortable and large and everything is very clean.
We stayed 6 nights and ate at the restaurant each evening - the meals are excellent. The breakfast buffet is extensive and very tasty.
Would I stay here again? Yes - in a heartbeat. It was very difficult to leave views as good as these.

The 3 of us spent 4 night in the hotel in a "large double room". We had a double bed and an extendable armchair, which was reasonable for our son. The room was indeed big enough and had two balconies, next to each other. One very small, but the other one was just great, with a direct lake view, shadow, table and chairs (1st floor).
The other great thing about the hotel was its park. Not big, but great for a short promenade, or for a lake-side coffee when the weather permits.
Also a gym, and even a table tennis room in the basement.
Easily accessible by car, plenty of parking.
Unless the breakfast, which was modest than expected for such a place, it could be a perfect place to spend a week.

We were at the Parkhotel last month. They still offer the free transport card - will get you to Interlaken or Thun on bus 21 with no charge. Bus runs (I think) every 30 mns. The bus stop is right outside the hotel. You can also walk for 5 mins and be at the lakefront and take a lake boat to Interlaken or Thun or Spiez etc. Those run hourly in summer less frequently in winter. (The hotel is open year round with a short closing in January and early February).

Answer from Hambagahle

No - no AC. There are very few Swiss hotels with AC anyway. we were there with temperatures in the mid 30s. Keeping the shutters closed all day and windows and shutters open at night (to get the cool air into the room) worked well. The hotel also has some fans which you can request. (We brought our own...)
