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

The Riverhouse is in the centre of Andermatt about 500 metres from the Gemstock cable car. The building is a beautiful restoration and updating of a traditional Swiss house with excellent facilities. Staff very friendly, restaurant really good, a lively bar but quiet guest rooms. Could not have asked for more.

I get the feeling our hosts cared very much if we had a good stay River House. Little touches like daily juice and chocolates in our room and a welcome Prosecco in their bar were nice touches. We visited very much off season and were at times the only guests, but still they laid on a fantastic breakfast buffet. Thoroughly... More

We just had a wonderful stay in this traditional swiss hotel beside a lovely river (as the name suggests). The location is very central, the bar is the best in town (unless you like 5star perfection - you know who i mean) and the restaurant serves beautiful breakfast and dinner. The room is equipped with an ipod dock, traditional and... More

Staying at the River House Boutique is certainly no punishment. It is a warm, welcoming place on the river running through the village. Rooms are nice and comfortable and the people working there are ever so friendly. The reception says it all with 2 places for dogs to be comfortable and some sweets and so to make you feel at...

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.
