Other reviewers have already noted River House's interesting architecture, the nice terrace overlooking the river, the attractive furnishing of rooms and excellent breakfast - which I can all confirm. Why only "average" ? - Value for money: Big problem (as so often in Switzerland) - luxury rates for just above average hotels (in - at best - average places such... More

The best hotel in Andermatt with out a doubt. I have had the opportunity to stay a few times and each time it has been awesome. The reasons are many but to mentioned some, The way the old building has been delicately restored by the owners, the different characters of each room and the friendliness by the owners and their...

Hotel is very clean and centrally located. It used to be a house and I understand it was recently modernised and turned into a small hotel (about 10 bedrooms) with a bar and small restaurant. Breakfast was plentiful with a good quality but small buffet. Staff were very friendly and service was good. As a single traveller what disappointed me... More

We had an excellent stay in a cozy room which allowed us to recover from bad weather and a severe back problem. We came late for breakfast but the friendly staff had set aside a breakfast and gave us full service. Time for a nice chat although everyone was busy. We will definitely return.

I used to stop in Andermatt a lot as a kid. There was no tunnel and it was and remains a lovely Alpine town, full of atmosphere. It is now far less busy and the main drag seemed a bit run down although it is clear the locals are trying to launch it upmarket- with varying success judging by the... More

Good music program in the bar, and interesting restaurant menu with focus on local products. service quite casual but nice. Came back to restaurant passing thru town. Short but interesting menu. Arrived a little before 7 pm as first guests in... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Indeed we did not have our best day what can happen to everyone, but should not. One of the main important issue that we had was that everyone arrived in the bar and then slowly in the restaurant at the same time. Incl. to that we also managed hotel check-ins. That with one...

It's a small hotel, probably one of the nicest ones in Andermatt (chedi excluded). The location is right in town, walking distance to every shop or restaurant. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Also dinner is served with a fusion cuisine american style. We ate there and were very happy with our choice. Reservation is recommended, since weekends is... More

The River House is a very nice hotel in a beautiful village. All of us (3 dads and 4 teenagers) enjoyed our stay. There is a great atmosphere in the hotel, the bar and restaurant feels like home and staff is very friendly. All of us would recommend this hotel!
