Episode 26: Glorious food, hospitality and views at Hotel Gloria

August 11, 2021 Last Updated on August 11, 2021

Interview with Jacky and Bernhard Oehrli from Hotel Gloria in Beatenberg

When Australian Jacky and Swiss Bernhard first met in Australia many years ago, they had no idea that they would eventually marry and move to Switzerland to operate a hotel and restaurant. But fate stepped in and they find themselves owning and operating Hotel Gloria in Beatenberg, a small village just 10 kilometres from Interlaken.

With the hotel perched on a sunny terrace overlooking Lake Thun and with panoramic views of the Bernese Alps, it’s no wonder the couple love welcoming guests to their hotel and restaurant.

Bernhard is a chef who has worked in 5 star establishments around the world, and together with Jacky, who has a real passion for making her guests feel like family, they have created a hotel that guests return to again and again.  “Our guests are never just a name and room number,” is their mantra.

Jacky and Bernhard are proud of the fact that they use local produce wherever possible in the restaurant’s dishes and Chef Bernhard’s modern twist on both Swiss and international cuisine provides a dining experience like no other.

After listening to Jacky and Bernhard’s story you’ll get a real sense of their commitment to offering their guests a homely, welcoming base in the gorgeous village of Beatenberg.
