Found this gem of a mid range hotel by chance after a failed attempt to get accommodation in Zurich. Winterthun very much in the Swiss ethos of less car, more bike and pedestrian. Sat Nav absolutely useless at getting you to front door, so tip is to find main railway, go up the steel ramp adjacent and park of first floor if you can. Hotel has own elevator down to ground floor, walk across to reception. Easy once you know how....
Reception staff pleasant and helpful, choice of elevators to 4 floors. Rooms compact but adequate, very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. We opened window during the night, the double decker trains are electric with surprisingly little noise. TV has UK channels, so great for those that don't want to spend all their time in the bar.
Now for the best bit, compact bathroom has stand in bath with shower, non slip floor, glass screen swings in and out, good water supply, great shower. Old style is best!
Adjacent Restaurant Argentine gives discount to hotel patrons, good food and worth a review on it's own. Next morning breakfast in dining room to the rear, nice choice and friendly staff.
This probably the best hotel we stayed at on the whole tour, not the most expensive or grandest, just somewhere comfortable and easy to recommend! less
