This is important for us

In the Hotel Murtenhof & Krone we aim to continually optimize our business, not only commercially but also for the benefit of our guests:
• We want our customers to feel the warmth and commitment of our team.
• We want our employees to be able to count on a sense of stability and continuity.
• We expect our suppliers to give us what we also offer them: flexibility. In return we offer them the opportunity to build a long-term working relationship with attractive sales potential.

These things are important to us:
• Independence
• Acknowledgement
• Quality control
• Openness
• Courage to make changes
• Friendliness
• Expertise
• Creativity
• Being different
• Prospects and new horizons
• History – especially 1476
• The price of oil (we’ve just installed a new heating system)
But most important to us are the people around us. We always try to improve for them. For example, we give our guests a small Christmas gift, we offer our staff special treats and we always greet our suppliers with a smile and a few kind words.
