We combined a stay @ this family owned hotel / restaurant BAREN SIGRISWIL with a trip to the panoramic Sigriswil bridge which is a two minutes walk from the hotel. It was exciting crossing the 340 m long suspension bridge offering magnificent views of the famous Bernese Oberland peaks, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, as well as Lake Thun. Looking 182mt below we saw the bottom of Gummischlucht gorge with breath taking views.
We were given two suites on the second floor with a view of the mountains and both these suites were clean and very spacious. Many rooms have a lake view. The shower cubicle is large (1mt x 1.5mt) and has a nice power shower which I used immediately after check-in and again in the morning.
I had trouble understanding the language and getting any english TV channels and I suggest that the hotel provides some written instructions on accessing english channels. At 7am I went around to the reception and also to the breakfast restaurant looking for someone to assist me but there was no-one. Then, I resolved to getting news on the internet as the WiFi was good.
When available, the few staff are quite helpful and the hotel provides an extensive breakfast buffet.
Excellent peaceful location and breathtaking views all around.
