My wife and I spent three nights here as part of a tour. Unterwasser is a very quiet village near the Lichtenstein border, and there would be very little to do there other than go for walks. It is, however, a good spot for exploring North East Switzerland and beyond. The rooms overlook (maybe underlook!) rolling hills which are very... More

Sometimes it is just incredibly convenient to have a take-away pizza instead of cooking yourself or going out. It is just great to have one of the best wood-burning oven pizzas in Toggenburg. 1/2 hour after you call the restaurant to place your order the pizza is ready for you to be picked up: Sizzeling and warm, thin italian pastry,...

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights as part of a scenic tour of Switzerland. Its a small hotel but I must admit it is run very well. We really enjoyed our time there and the staff should be proud of the service they are giving to thew guests. Whatever we asked for we received. Can't fault it.

The staff at Hotel Santis was very pleasant. The manager Josef was attentive and helpful. It was low season and not very busy, however. Some rooms faced the Santis and would have been somewhat noisy with the road traffic. We opted for a room facing the garden. The view was still very nice. We had 2 adults and one child... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we enjoyed the cleanliness of the room, the view and above all the warm hospitality. We were welcomed and we were treated respectfully anytime we were seen in the hotel surroundings. The hotel manager took care of everything we needed (bought immediately a new pump for the hotel's bicycles when my husband... More

This hotel is listed as a Family hotel but no children care is offered. One of the purposes of our trip was that our 6 year child old practises german with other children, but no such possibility was available. We has been assured by phone that there were children activities at least 4/5 times a week. Not true........ The hotel... More

Stayed here for three nights. The location is excellent surrounded by mountains, rolling fields with stream running through grounds. The hotel is pretty shabby and is in serious need of a major makeover. Rooms are dark with ageing well worn furniture. Carpets threadbare in places. Staff very good , helpful and friendly.

The hotel has a good location for skiers - just a few minutes walk to the lifts and next to the slopes. Rooms are quite ageing - old furniture, old carpets, you can easily see that the rooms have been painted recently but that no major refurbishment has been done for many years. Kitchen is ok - nothing fancy, but... More
