Wonderful views from cosy family-run hotel

Review of Hotel Gloria
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Jul 2022
This small family-run hotel/restaurant made for a wonderful place to stay to explore Interlaken and the Jungfrau region. The views from the balconies and the restaurant terrace out over lake Thun are beautiful, the rooms comfortable, clean, and quiet, and the staff warm and welcoming.

From the hotel you can catch the 101 bus (free with the visitor pass) down to Interlaken, which takes around 30 minutes. The buses run every hour most days.

Otherwise it's a 10 minute walk along to the cable car and funicular station. From there you can take a funicular down 10 minutes to Beatenbucht beside the lake (there's a little restaurant that also does take-away pizzas). It's possible to catch a lake boat there, or catch the bus that runs towards Thun, or in to Interlaken. In that direction is passes the St Beatus Caves, and then goes on to Interlaken West and eventually Ost (useful for trips to the Jungfrau).

The cable car up the Niederhorn is well worth taking. The views from the top are stunning and you can opt to walk down an hour or so to the Vorsass mid-way station on the cable car where there's a small restaurant (cash only). From there you can either take the cable car back down, walk down (a bit steeper this last bit), or hire a trotti-bike to ride down.

Yesterday we stayed at hotel Gloria, after a warm welcome we had a delicious meal in the restaurant. the cheese fondue and the desserts are highly recommended.

The room was very spacious with a beautiful view and lovely bedding. big compliments for the hospitality, service and that attention has been given to every detail.

We will come back.

Amazing view. Clean room. Clean bathroom. Exquisite in-hotel restaurant. Everything was so fresh. Jackie (the owner) treats the guests at her hotel like guests at her home. Thank you for your warm hospitality, Jackie. Moe from Kuwait.

Perfect view of lake Thun and mountains from the restaurant and room, especially when the weather is clear. At the restaurant we tried different dishes and all came out perfect. The owners are friendly. Room has good size and comfortable. Overall highly recommended!

We saw in the New Year 2021 at Hotel Gloria and loved every second. The staff were kind and attentive, the food was excellent and the views out of this world. As the clock chimed midnight the valley below lit up with fireworks. The views from every room were to die for and we enjoyed snowy walks and sledging with our kids. The decor is cosy and we particularly liked the little sitting room on the first floor, where you can sit with a book and a coffee and soak up the mountains all around and lake below. Only good things to say about this place and can't wait to go back in summer!
