The Hotel Rossli is quietly and conveniently situated in Unterseen, about an easy five minute walk from Interlaken West railway station. There is also an excellent Co-op supermarket on this route.
The owner Jean-Louis and his son Christopher were really friendly, welcoming and were able to provide suggestions for excursions and a wide range of printed tourist information. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble.
Humour was Jean-Louis's forte (I think he must have been a comedian in a previous life) and this helped engender an informal relaxed atmosphere that was often punctuated by bouts of laughter from his guests - me included. How pleasant and refreshing this was! However, further conversation with Jean-Louis revealed a more serious philosophical character, concerned about environmental issues and world politics.
I had a single room at the Rossli that was clean, simply furnished, comfortable and included en-suite facilities, TV with satellite channels and a balcony with nice views across to the Jungfrau massif.
The breakfast buffet was ample and comprised: fruit juice, boiled eggs, cheese, cold meats, fruit,
yoghurt, cereals, bread/rolls, croissants, jams and coffee or tea with welcome refills! There is also an half board option available for about Sfr30/night.

Unique Qualities: There is a cosy Bar/Lounge offering the usual drinks (and very nice coffee) at reasonable prices.
An internet terminal is available - at extra charge and free car parking is available.
In my opinion this hotel offers a unique friendly experience at minimal cost in a quiet part of town.
Interlaken is an excellent base from which to explore the superb scenery of the Bernese Oberland or resorts further afield. I can't wait to go back!
It's worth checking out the Hotel's website 'Top News' link to find special offers.
