Very Good 8.4 From 50 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great location but disappointing in every way.
The hotel is impressive to look at both when you arrive and when you see it from the cable car as it has an imposing stance over the town. You can feel the former glory of the hotel which is desperately in need of a refurbishment, although the sauna has been updated and is rather lovely, though small. Breakfast was cold. Room service was very poor as guests are expected to collect the items they have requested from the front desk. I was extremely disappointed with the fact that the site says that rollaway beds are available but when you request one you are unexpectedly charged over £100 for an extra person and face a awkward argument with the personnel at check out. Disappointing.

Good value for Engelberg
Having always seen the hotel on other trips here, we decided that it was just the place for a last-minute night's stay in Engelberg. A classic of the town, with lots of history - friendly staff, massive car park and spectacular views (and massive breakfast), just the job. And despite being up the hill away from the Titlis lift station, thanks to the James Bond-esque elevators, you're quickly delivered into the middle of town.

Good stay
We were here together with my friens. The staff was very nice and kind. Food was good and stay was a joy. Also spa down stairs was good.

Great location with easy access to the train station and the slopes for skiing. If you are eating in the town on a saturday night make a reservation during the ski season

Good 6.0
It was probably a grand hotel some decades ago...
The hotel looks amazing from the outside, but not that great from the inside. This was probably a great hotel some 30-40 years ago, but big room for improvement today. In addition to looking a bit run down, the mattress in the room was simply terrible. I imagine it is what they offer prisoners. However, when I complained, I did get another mattress the last night (staff was in general doing their best - I was obviously not the first to complain). Breakfast buffet was also sub par for what I expect from a Swiss hotel and the ambiance in the room was more like a sports hall. But location is great with a view over Engelberg, the staff is doing a decent job offering service and the hotel looks nice on the outside...

Poor 2.0
Lost grandess in a globalized world
Just look for the existing reviews in the category terrible...the hotel is laid out to cater for big groups from India and China. The location, history and architecture of that old Grand Hotel Terrasse are very nice but this hotel lost its grandess a long time ago.

great view, good value
The location with a view to the Alps is unparalleled. The building and its rooms are a bit dated but still pretty good value.

We stayed here on New Year’s Eve and it was great. Our room has a balcony that comes with an amazing view. Hotel breakfast has a good spread too.
