Stayed here for a week end-Feb/early-Mar. Splendid building that has been tastefully modernized. Magnificent view of Engelberg and the Titlis ski area. Staff is competent and friendly. The rooms are OK but could do with a refresher, in particular the bathrooms. All in good working order and very clean though. The restaurant offers a good buffet, very high-quality ingredients in the food. The cheeses and the ice-cream deserve special mention. Overall a very good stay, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Room facing the valley and Laub was great. Nice breakfast, great Gin & Tonic in the Gin bar, excellent service. Beds a bit hard but thats a matter of taste. All in all a great place to stay for some skiing in Engelberg

Fabulous Hotel. Our room was nice and quiet. Excellent buffet breakfast with EVERYTHING you can imagine. Daniel, the Food and Beverage Manager went above and beyond to make our stay totally enjoyable Highly recommend.

Stayed here for a week with a group of friends for a ski trip. The hotel was nice. Service was excellent. Have to trek a bit to get to the bus for the ski resort, but overall not too bad. Really enjoyed our stay and the town of Engleberg.

Entry to the hotel..Itself will define that u entering into a different world...Rooms are good with an excellent view..Of the mountains ,town and mt titlist...Food is also excellent with a large variety of Indian dishes..And it's tasty too.At most of the time u will feel not to leave the room but just relax and see the beautiful city from the balcony..

Entry to the hotel seems exciting- as if entering a cave!! Food is simply awesome there with traditional Indian fares in buffet spread. It is a rare sight to see so many Indians in a hotel in Switzerland. Enjoyed the hospitality of the hotel

Old style hotel with impressive architecture. The price of the room was surprisingly cheap however the room was not nice at all. I guess other rooms (with higher price) will be much better. The dinner buffet and the breakfast were quite good.

The Terrace is a hotel with a bit of history. What is very clear is that it once was the place to be in Engelberg. I think when originally opened it was the Grand Terrace and must have been rather splendid judging from the various photos of it in its heyday. It now represents good value for money but is not so grand. We stayed in the new wing without much of a view. The room was perfectly adequate and the bed comfortable. Nice powerful shower too in the fairly basic bathroom. The staff were mostly very pleasant. Only the older and more senior members of staff let the side down a bit with a rather brusque manner. It is well located with a very convenient lift system to get from town into the hotel. Ski bus is only a short walk away from the bottom lift. Food was disappointing. Buffets most evenings we stayed and not really very interesting options. The bar area was very nice though with live music on one of the nights we stayed and the obligatory huge gin selection. Would I stay here again? Probably, but I would eat in town in the evening rather than the hotel.

We stayed here with our family in two rooms for 3 nights over Christmas. The rooms are average, but if you get a room on the front side of the hotel, the views are to die for. uninterrupted views of the mountains. The rooms as said were pretty average. a tiny bathroom with a shower and toilet, but the sink with mirror is actually on the outside, in the actual room. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast buffet is good, with a good selection of food, and fresh coffee. Funny enough, the coffee machines that you use to make your own coffee for breakfast, are locked at night; at dinner time you get charged some 4CHF for a coffee instead. The dinner buffet was very average, nothing to write home about but for 38CHF also priced very reasonably. We had dinner there once, and decide to eat out after that. There is no gym, but a good mixed adult sauna (+16) that is open between 4 and 8pm. From the hotel, you can take two lifts to get to the street level and it only takes a few minutes to walk to the center of town.
