REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS
Susan Ball, USA
Hoilday in September 2017 : Susan Ball and family, USA
Our stay in Interlaken was magnificent and all too brief. I found the staff at Manor Farm to be informative, knowledgeable about the area and very helpful in aiding us to plan to get the most out of our days. Our host was very friendly, upbeat and willing to go the extra mile to be of service. I would like to thank Bill for chasing us to the bus stop with our cleaning deposit. The trailer was very clean and comfortable enough for five adults in such a small space. Our actual time spent in Switzerland (3 days) was superb. Thank you, Susan Ball, USA
Eine schöne Zeit im Berner Oberland ... 😁 (Family Axel - Germany)
Super Lage mit Ausblick auf die Berge. Kurze Wege zu den Stränden. Saubere Anlage und sehr freundlicher Gastgeber .
“Great location, peaceful, safe, near so many attractions...”
- Staff is good, ready to help/guide
- Location is great
- Mostly families with children were there
- Lake side is superb
- Accommodation has all that you need
Absolute value of money”
We stayed in Oberhoffen Plus accommodation for 8 nights. Fantastic cabin, great host and excellent location. We enjoyed every bit of this one week.
List of things which are perfect is long so the list of negatives:
Only bus near by is at one hour frequency and last one is at 7pm
Overall perfect place to stay in arround interlaken
Just what we were looking for
We stayed in Altogold for three nights over Easter weekend and really enjoyed it. The cabins were a short 5min walk to the lake, and were clean and quiet. Despite three days of rain, the kitchen heater kept the cabin warm. The campsite store was open every day, there were two cafe/restaurants within a 5 minute walk, and we were offered the use of a barbeque while we were there. There were also plenty of beautiful walking trails, horseriding paths, bikepaths etc along the lake and in the forest. A boat to Thun, on the other side of the lake, leaves from just next to the campground. My kids especially loved the jumpers that always seemed to be drifting overhead. There was too much to see and do in three short days!

Amabilidad y sitio esplendido
Los dueños son muy amables, se esforzaron al máximo para ayudarnos con nuestra estancia y con nuestro viaje. Durante las gestiones contestaron a todas mis dudas muy rápido. El alojamiento es practico, tiene todo lo que necesitas, el camping esta genial, esta muy bien ubicado para hacer distintas actividades en la zona. Además te facilitan unas tarjetas para viajar gratis en barco y autobús a Interlaken, y para la piscina (tanto exterior como cubierta ) de Interlaken (que a mis hijos le encanto, tiene trampolín, tobogán y es una buena opción para terminar un día de actividades en la montaña). Muy recomendable
Family Lewis. fabulous place to stay. Left on Oct 7, 2016 for a stay in Oct 2016
If you are on a budget - and in Switzerland that is an issue as it is so expensive there - this has to be the way to see the Bernese Oberland and as a base for the rest of the country. The setting of the mobile home park is right beside the Thun See lake at Interlaken - you can even swim from one of 3 beaches in the lake. The mobile homes are well maintained and with all you need for a stay - we were there 3 weeks. Cooker, fridge freezer, microwave. It means if you travel by car you can take food supplies and eat in affordably. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the bus pass really useful - parking in Interlaken is all metered. I can't praise it highly enough. Very pleased indeed.

Good value for money. A very good experience. The only problem was we arrived 2 hours earlier than scheduled check in and there was no one to help us and we had to wait for 2 hours. Internet is also a problem. But the experience was good to do your own cooking. "Our Swiss Experience" Thankyou to the staff and site reps for there information in helping our holiday such a wonderful experience seeing this beautiful country. Our accomadation was clean and comfortable and a loverly location, a short wall took us to the lake side where we could take in the wonderful views of the mountains. We are re-booking for 2013 so that we can see more of Switzerland, thank again for your help. Recommended for: A romantic getaway Rugged travelers
"Fantastic holiday" 14/07/15
Found Altogold mobile homes a first rate holiday destination and Manor Farm an excellent site.The staff made us welcome and gave us plenty of advice as to where to go and see. The mobile homes are modern and well kept with most things you need
“wonderful place to stay” May 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015
I travelled with my mom, brother and daughter. I chose Altogold because I read good reviews from trip advisor. We really had a great time there. The owner, Kelvin and Trudi were very helpful, gave us good advice for traveling in Switzerland and very friendly. The cabin is located at the good location. We walk 5 min to the bus station and took 5 min to downtown. It's on the lake with excellent view even though you won't see the view from the cabin but it's there only 5 min walk. We saved a lot of money stayed here compare to any hotel in Switzerland. There are full kitchen which is very good for us. We'd love to go back. I really recommend to chose Altogold.
"Super convenient location, friendly staff, very adequate accommodation"
We visited the Interlaken region for five days, and travelled as a family needing two separate bedrooms. We rented one of the permanent trailer homes within the campsite. The unit consisted of two bedrooms, a kitchen / dining / living area, a shower, and a separate toilet. It was very clean and well equipped for self catering. It is certainly not 5 star accommodation, but neither are the prices. Overall great value for money. When one tries to research on the internet what to do in the area and how to get around it is extremely confusing as the options / choices are so many, as much for places to see as for ticket options / value passes / what is or isn't included etc. Kelvin, the owner and manager, was fantastic. He was very friendly and helpful. On the day we arrived he spent a good amount of time with us, brought us brochures for all sorts our options / sites etc, and then gave fantastic suggestions of how to best use the days we were in the area, as well as which passes to buy for the most cost effective options. We ended up doing basically everything he had suggested, and a few other things, and had a fabulous time. We did have a hire car which helped us get around to some of the starting points, but it can all be done using the very good public transport system
Hazel & Ray Northern Ireland:- Had a super holiday at Manor Farm, Interlaken staying with altogold. The managers on site are mature, helpful and friendly and have a wealth of knowledge of the area. The accommodation is superb on well kept spacious sites and we found our Swiss neighbours very friendly and welcoming. We look forward to returning in 2014.
Mr Austin September
"Disabled trip to Switzerland. see also review on Switzerland facilities" I stayed with my carer, for a week's trip to the Bernese Oberland. The mobile home was in immaculate condition, not even a stain on the carpet, even though 8 years old.The owners, Kelvin and Trudi, were coincidentally also there at the same time, and Ralfe and Sue, the site managers, all were extremely friendly and helpful. The company is based in Storrington, Sussex, and they have about 24 vans on site, with varying configurations for sleeping up to 7 or 8. If disabled like me book a double bed with wide access to ease getting into bed, as inevitably with a mobile van, space restrictions mean some beds are cramped, but the living space is superb. I will comment on the Swiss disabled facilities, under location.
"Cheaper than Bournemouth!" Reviewed 21 December 2012 for a stay in September 2012 First class on an imaculate site. Friendly site managers always willing to help when needed. Mini supermarket, restaurant and a beach on site; and the high alps within a few miles. My wife and I have been customers of altogold for many years because we can't find anything better Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Absolutely!

"Good base from which to see Interlaken"
Reviewed 20 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012 Switzerland is an expensive country. Staying in a hotel in the Interlaken area is upwards of USD300/night and more. So a trailer/camper van is a logical option at 80Euro a night where 3 adults and 2 kids can sleep. My expectations were not high, so they were met. The beds were ok to sleep on for four nights. Dishwasher and cooking equipment worked just fine. Space to sit outside and eat and read. These trailers, however, are a bit old and could do with an update, so if you understand all this and go in with moderate expectations, then you'll be fine. The trailer park offers some amenities: you'd have access to a little "beach" area for the kids to play with the sand and get their feet wet in the lake. There is a great restaurant on the premises -- very nice -- that was open before 6.00pm (shocking for Europe!) that serves cold beer, pizza and salads (at about 7/730pm, then a full dinner menu is available) and right next to the restaurant is a little playground area. You can also order fresh bread and rolls for the next morning from a little store. You can buy WIFI minutes from the store, but really only access if you are standing next to the store -- we couldn't use it in our caravan (although they were very nice about refunding the cost). The best benefit, of course, is inexpensive access to all that Interlaken offers: gorgeous mountains, hiking, and lakes, and definitely don't miss http://ballenberg.ch/en/Welcome -- fabulous!
Liked best: Access to Interlaken and the restaurant. Travelling group: Friends Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes. Recommended for: Older travelers Families with young children - I recommend the location. - The property was a good value for the price paid.
"Excellent location and great trip advisor" Reviewed 20 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012 we had a lovely time and the location of the site was beautiful,near to the bus and train to the main station of inter lakaan west. Holiday Home was clean and well equipped as mentioned in the advert. The holiday rental team was great about instructions on sight seeing and area information. we had a great time and made the most of our stay. Travelling group: Family with Young Children
Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes. - The property was "as advertised". - I recommend the location. - The property was a good value for the price paid. Was this review helpful? Yes

Reviewed 2 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011. First, because we arrived very late, our key wating for us with explanation for getting the mobile home. the Altogold crew were very very cooperative and polite about travel advice and maintenance treatment. the environment was clean and cool. Liked best: the crew

Yes. recommended for: Older travelers Families with young children - I recommend the location. - The property was a good value for the price paid. - The property provided wifi/internet access.
Joy and Brian Dorset .......Once again we had a lovely holiday, despite the changeable weather and managed to get to all three stages of the Swiss Cycle tour (Tour de Swiss). The wi fi connection was invaluable in planning journeys using SBB App Which was excellent tool and to be recommended.
Family Winsemius, Holland ....... We arrived with warm welcome, Everything was Clean, Its a nice accommodation and the camping to stay for several weeks. Thanks for a great holiday.
Mr Dundas, Surrey ....... May I take this opportunity to express my satisfaction with the quality of the site, the accomodation and the helpful and pleassant attitude of your reps. It has been a pleasure altogether and I look forward to booking with you again in the future. Please pass on my comments.
John and Gill Janzen, Suffolk ........ Just back from our 2 centre holiday. Loved the Holiday Home. A little different from the Sprite Major from many years ago. The siting of the Oberhofens was excellent, and it really does look like a little holiday village, with the skirting under the Holiday Homes making them look more permanent. The accommodation was excellent, and it was nice to have an electric kettle,toaster AND of course the T.V./ D VD, Most Holiday homes occupied, as we guess that it must be more than a little expensive to site them on a very good site in Switzerland? Your Reps. Jenny and Ivor did a very good job of looking after everyone, so really we could not have asked for more.
We flew to Karlsruhe/ Baden Baden (early morning flight) and went shopping in Penny Markt, just off the motorway to stock up on Jam, Butter, drinks, plus a couple of cans of Goulasch soup etc. etc. This worked really well as it cut the cost down of breakfast and lunch. We did eat out each night though and the meals were excellent. Car hire in Germany was quite a lot cheaper than in Switzerland, so it might suit some of your clients interested in a 2 centre holiday. The return flight left at around 10 a.m. but for anyone looking for being close to the airport there is a cheap B and B (one of the French chains) nearly adjacent to the airport. Thought this information might be useful to you as an alternative for clients either driving from England or flying into Swiss airports which is far more expensive.
Thanks for a really brilliant holiday. We both worked in the Travel Industry for all of our lives, so we recognise good accommodation and Representatives. We certainly hope to do it again.
J Goodfellow, Telford...... Thank you for a lovelly holiday at Manor Farm. It was comfortable and Lovely. The reps were just Great. What a lovely site it is.
A & N Sexton, West Sussex ..... We had a wonderful time with you in Interlaken this year. The weather was very kind to us and wonderful memories of past times spent at Manor Farm in your caravans, caravillas and mobile homes came flooding back. The newer members of the family, who had never visited before, thought the country, the camp site and the mobile homes were marvellous. It certainly was a fantastic celebration for us. We also thank you for the bottle of wine that you left us.(BRZOBH80130811)

Mr & Mrs Packard, Essex area......May I suggest that you advise clients who have their own transport but may want to do just a couple of trips (up mountains or on boats) a Half-Fare Travel card - we thought this was excellent value as the children then get Free travel cards so any transport we took just cost the price of one adult fare for the whole family.
Family Hartgers. Holland.... Sorry we missed you but thanks for the hospitality see you next year.
Family Neill. Ireland. Thanks for a Great stay **** left the Key on the table inside, Hope to see you next year
