We stayed with family and friends over New Year and had a lovely time. The hotel is very well situated in the middle of Andermatt (a small, beautiful village) next to the river. The rooms were perfect for our needs and the children loved the i-pads, bluetooth speakers and the orange juice and cordial/syrup left for guests in the rooms.... More

We stayed here for a night and found the hosts very flexible, accommodative and helpful to the needs of our two small children. They arranged for pickup from the station and drop back, even during heavy snow. Well maintained facility and great food.

We stayed for a weekend and loved the place. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very cosy and comfortable. The hotel is located very close to the Gemsstock lift -walking distance- and there are plenty of restaurants around. Breakfast is very complete and well prepared. The hotel's restaurant and bar are also great, which is... More

Breakfast was delicious, the staff were very nice. Not that sound proof so could hear people above us walking around their room. River is noisy at night so could not sleep with the window open. Double bed was very small and no bath. They left chocolate, apples and a juice in our room which was a very nice touch.

The River House is a unique, welcome mix of modern amenities and style with mountain sensibility and pace. The rooms hit a mark that is difficult to achieve: comfortable and stylish at the same time. The food follows suit: Several dishes, which are made for a 21st century palette with the freshest local ingredients, are based on historic recipes of... More

Fantastic boutique hotel in the center on Andermatt. If you like the warm atmosphere of a typical Swiss Chalet, you are right here. The owners did the concept, build the hotel 10 years ago and continue to pamper the guests with the local Swiss Hospitality. The lounge bar is perfect for a drink and the restaurant offers delicious dishes.

This hotel is my favourite place that we have stayed in Switzerland. It is beautifully unique, with lots of nice touches in the room and is a historic building, which has been very tastefully furnished and in ways to make it eco-friendly. The staff were really lovely and friendly and we felt welcomed here, from the first welcome drink to... More

Situated right in the centre of Andermatt with the river running right behind it, this small hotel has nice rooms and facilities. A cosy bar downstairs and one above on the roof which is great on a nice day. Good breakfast available and genial hosts make for a pleasant spot to stay.

Wonderful hotel in a beautiful location. The attention to detail was much to our liking, from the delicious breakfast, the bar, and friendly staff. We felt at home. The only negative was on weekends the night club revelers made quite a lot of noise at two am making sleep difficult for a time.

This is a great hotel. We stayed at the River House four nights in mid-March, and left very happy with the experience. The rooms are rebuilt within the frame of a classic old Swiss house, with a stylish combination of traditional and modern. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant are both very good. The hotel bar is the best... More
