You'll then travel by train to Interlaken, where you'll stay at the fabulous Stella Hotel Interlaken. As the gateway to the Swiss Alps, this town makes the perfect base from which to explore stunning surrounding sights, from Mönch mountain to picturesque lakes. You'll also have the option to complete your Swiss experience with a trip to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe, placed at 3,454 metres above sea level.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
