Ski in, ski out with fabulous views over the Trubsee lake, the 37 roomed Trubsee Alpine Lodge is halfway up the mountain between Engelberg village and the Mount Titlis summit. Only accessible by skiing or via the cable car which runs from the village from 8:30am til 4:30pm each day. The hotel is secluded once the lifts close for the evening, you have the wonderful mountain views to admire as the sun goes down or you could borrow a pair of snowshoes and head out for a snowy afternoon walk. There's also a cinema room and sauna or relax in the bar and lounge area before you four-course meal each evening.

What we like

- Ski in, ski out access up the mountain
Ski pass is included for each person on the booking, valid for both arrival and departure days and the duration of your stay
- Fantastic views from the sun terrace over Lake Trubsee and beyond
- You can be the first up Mount Titlis each morning as you are already halfway up the mountain

Worth knowing

- Cheese fondue can be booked in advance to replace one of your evening meals
- Ski pass is included for each person on the booking

What others have said

Gorgeous St Leonards, Australia Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and a views to die for. Food downstairs was really nice and quite generous also. I don't see why anyone would choose to stay somewhere in this area and then complain... Rated 5 on TripAdvisor
Looks nice but inconvenient Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Located halfway to the top of Mt Titlis, sounds good. Other than the convenience of getting up to the top of Mt Titlis quickly, it feels like being stranded or imprisoned here. Everything shuts down... Rated 4 on TripAdvisor
Holiday prison Istanbul, Turkey This is a ski sport camp rather than a hotel. After 5 pm you're locked in. (No cable car after 5pm) This is a half board premise, breakfast is good but dinner is a problem. And you have no options... Rated 3 on TripAdvisor
