HOTELS ARE LIKE THEIR GUESTS, THEY ARE CONTINUESLY CHANGING.
Today's Comfort Hotel Egerkingen was opened in 1974 as "Motel Agip". From 1980 it changed its name as "Motel SSG", Schweizerische Speisewagon Gesellschaft, the operator of restaurant services on trains. Since 2001, it has been owned by "Autogrill Schweiz AG", a subsidiary of "Autogrill S.p.A. Italia ".
The greatest transformation took place between December 2007 and May 2008. The rooms, all 13 conference and seminar rooms and the outdoor area including the garden terrace, were renovated.
Since June 2008 the hotel is part of the chain “Choice” and operates as "Comfort Hotel Egerkingen".
The Comfort Hotel Egerkingen
The Comfort Hotel is located at the motorway junction A1 / A2 at the most central traffic junction in Switzerland. Located directly on the motorway exit, we are an ideal meeting place for long-distance travelers as well as for regional guests. Big cities such as Zurich, Bern, Basel and Lausanne can be reached in less than 50 minutes. In our restaurant - and in summer on our garden terrace - we spoil you with popular dishes from the Mediterranean or with regional specialties. And for companies modern seminar rooms are available.
Do you remember the TV series "Motel" on Swiss television? In 1984, 40 episodes went on the screen. The series, about working and living in the motel was shot week after week at the original venue, our motel in Egerkingen, and aired on Sunday evening. Jörg Schneider and Silvia Jost played the lead roles. The kitchen boy “Peperoni” was Dani Levy, who later became a film director. "Motel" provided the Swiss with a life like screenplay of everyday life, bringing social taboos to the table. This led to much talk. Despite good ratings, the series was therefore discontinued after a year.
