8/10 Very Good

Loved the hotel. Great staff. Dinner took way too long to get food and really was the worst meal we had in Switzerland. We were disappointed that there was only one restaurant to choose from. Breakfast was amazing.

The Grandhotel Gießbach is an amazing place. It is right in a nature park with gorgeous views of waterfall and lake Brienz. The historic funicular is a short walk away. It will take you right to the boating dock on lake Brienz. The hotel is so classic and grand. Excellent breakfast with musicians playing violin and piano in the background. Totally blow me away
