The Seehof Hotel du Lac is an old friend who has been around for more than150 years, looking after generations of families taking their annual holiday in the mountains. Weggis offers almost as much to fans of water sports as it does to walkers and climbers, and this inn is right on the lake. The main draws are the location, right in the heart of town, and the large, lakeside terrace. Inside, there is no single style of furnishings; when work needs to be done, or a room redecorated, the Zimmermans get on with it.
The more expensive bedrooms overlook the water but the cheaper ones at the back have a fine view of the Rigi and are quiet enough since most road traffic uses the bypass. Functional describes the tables, chairs and neutral colours. Bathrooms often surfer from being filled into corners and two bedrooms do not have private facilities. British regulars are among the loyal clientele who are fond of this staid old lady, a friendly soul who welcomes you to her rather dark interior and. in the restaurant with its lovely view, offers her speciality: fish fondue - not nearly as strange as it sounds.
