The fantastic gardens.

by written on November 11, 2006

The grounds around the hotel are well kept and worth using. The balcony next to the dining room was very welcome on sunny mornings, elsewhere you will find a pool and outdoor party area.

Making the bed!

Turnover is high at the Mattenhof, check your room when you move in and report any faults, they will of course be ignored so here I am making my own bed.

first - think Fawlty Towers. Ok lets proceed. The mattenhof suffers from a split personality, it tries to cater for budget traveller with dorms and multi occupancy rooms, like a YHA, but it also tries (and fails) to relive it's now faded Victorian splendour by offering rooms like a good hotel should, the trouble is the confusion surrounding booking system. The backpackerss are catered for by the `Funny Farm` which is the hostel side of the operation and the rest of us get the Mattenhof Resort treatment BUT - it's the same place! The rooms are designed to cater to the budget concious backpacker or the family traveller and they could be next door to each other. You certainly will have to wait to check in at the same desk, staffed by one of the droll boys and girls that work there. One day one our booking went astray and we were offered a room with bunkbeds in it, we didn't like the idea but as a party of rowdy Americans had filled all the other rooms we had no option, so we refused to pay for it. Day two we moved into a much nicer room with en suite and fantastic views of the mountains, the beds were broken but i managed to mend them. The room was a 4 berth given to us as our original booking still wasn't available, we didn't mind as we had plenty of room to spread out our kit.

Unique Quality: This unique hotel with its relaxed, friendly staff will ensure your stay with us is an unforgettable experience. - IT SURE WILL. If you get past the surly staff and don't mind sharing the bar with the backpackers from the Funny Farm then you will go on to discover that breakfast is just bread, jam & coffee in the dining room or buffet style but not much better for an extra fee. The gardens are lovely and the views magnificent from our side of the hotel, we were facing the Jungfrau (4158m) and the Silberhorn (3695m) The other side looks over the town towards more great mountains. The accent here is on outdoor activities and there are plenty of them, from paragliding down from local hills into the park, white water rafting on the glacial rivers, walking and climbing in the nearby alps and of course the full gamut of winter sports.

Directions: Get a taxi, the hotel staff will offer to meet you at the station - they won't come though.

This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in in Europe. The staff were great, it was clean, and our dorm room had a view of the alps from our balcony. The breakfast was a bit basic but that tends to be the usual for European hostels.

Unique Quality: The common area was nice, with a pool table, comfy chairs, a bar/restaurant, music all the time, and internet (pay). There was a big projection screen available, and was set up for us when we asked, and only for 3 people! The outdoor area has potential for summer season but since it was October we didn't hang out in the garden or pool. The owner's huge St. Bernard dog added a little extra character to the place. The staff here will help you arrange any activities you want from renting mountain bikes to skydiving.

Directions: We used the map at the train station to orient ourselves before walking over there. Its pretty hard to get lost in Interlaken.
