What ever the season this alpine hideaway is a gem ! The scenery wether it's winter or summer is breathtaking the hospitality second to one , no wonder people return year after year friendships are made here and memories will linger.Situated at the end of the valley quiet and peaceful yet close to ski lifts ...it is idyllic

Mark and Diane are the perfect innkeepers! (Their daughter is just a ray of sunshine!) After a long journey from Salzburg, we arrived very late (almost 21:00), but Diane was there with a smile, and happily made me a cup of coffee to help with my headache...I almost cried! Our room was simple, but spacious, and we didn't mind the... More

When you see a spectacular waterfall from your bedroom window it does make you feel wonderful! The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and the coffee served at breakfast is second to none. The rooms and facilities are basic but the hospitality makes up for it. They have maps, guides and plenty of advice for hiking options - we did... More

Glorious scenery surrounds you here and a special welcome awaits you......this is a special place where once visited you will return! Nothing is too much trouble for your hosts and we simply loved the music evening as did everyone else......memories to cherish!

place I have ever been! Had an enjoyable 5 days at the Alpenhof with three family members and two dogs. We hiked, walked, ate laughed and enjoyed the company of the hosts as well as other guests. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this hotel for the traveller looking for a relaxed family type atmosphere.

Gorgeous location in the Lauterbrunnen valley, surrounded by dramatic mountains and their waterfalls! The house itself was well equipped with most things expected in a holiday house, and is excellent value for money. Our hosts Diane & Mark were fantastic, and the fellow-travellers we met there were lovely. Other reviews have already made mention of the location, amenities, nearby walking... More

Staying here reminded me of an old an old Adirondack Inn, not so much rustic as basic, plain and simple accommodations, except it was cleaner than any old Adirondack Lodge. We stayed the end of ski season and it is just a short walk to bus stop or short drive to Shilthorn tram. The owners, Mark and Diane are the... More

I have stayed here twice, once in the summer and once in winter. Both seasons offer spectacular scenery, in summer you have great walks to nearby waterfalls, other towns, and of course the mountains. You have blue clear skies and there is an abundance of mountain flowers. In winter, you are surrounded by frozen waterfalls and lots of snow -... More

We stayed in Alpenhof Bed & Breakfast for 1 night, between 22-23 September 2012, on the special occasion of our family celebration, We were 25 people, including kids, parents and grand-parents of course. The place is absolutely isolated, as it is located at the end of the valley of Lauterbrunnen. The Hotel itself, is a kind of old house, with... More
