We celebrated our anniversary in this hotel and that was an excellent choice. The place has been renovated recently and is very charming and romantic. A lot of the features of the old building were kept and spiced up with some modern bits and pieces, the end result is very touching. The hotel is owned and managed by a Swedish... More

The Spannort is an unassuming, luxury, small boutique hotel in the centre of town. Everything about it shouts genuine comfort and quality. The prices aren't by any means cheap, but you feel like you're getting value for money. The staff are classy and friendly, breakfast is of an absurdly high quality, the rooms are lined with wood and there's some... More

Over the last 20 years I have spent hundreds of nights in hotels across the Alps and the Hotel Spannort is the finest hotel I have ever visited. Exceptional service, great food and wonderful accommodations. The hotel is the perfect blend of rustic Swiss with Scandinavian fusion. The friendliest most genuine hotel staff I have ever met.

I'd recommend this hotel, but it just misses the catch to earn 4 points. Breakfast is tremendous, nice Japanese Cuckoo clock, I even bought one myself, thanks! Room to store ski's, free parking, cosey reception and self service bar. Friendly service. The room (junior suite) is spacious, but not quite luxurious and a little worn ... The main disapointment is... More

Good service, child friendly with good baby beds, great location, nice breakfast, restaurant with a very good chef and a sauna that can be reserved for some privacy. Will definitively go back to this place! Book well in advance as it seems to be popular. Thanks Spannort, you made our weekend really nice!!

We visited for 6 days in January, with family joining us for two of them. We booked two junior suites, adjacent to each other, which were excellent. The hotel is run by a delightful Swedish family who were universally helpful and attentive, even to the point of helping to clear our car of snow on our departure day. The hotel... More

We decided to go for a romantic getaway and picked Engelberg as the photos of the Spannort hotel did really catch our eye. And we chose well! The hotel is located at the beginning of the pedestrian main street and has a convenient little parking on the back for hotel guests. The decoration is clearly country side/mountain insipired without being... More

A lovely hotel with lovely staff. The room was very comfortable and the décor simple but homely yet sophisticated as well. We felt that the staff were very helpful but without being in our faces.
