Sad to say this well positioned hotel seems to lack the atmosphere we saw in other Swiss Hotels. Staff seemed uninterested and only one had any idea of courteous service. The breakfasts were quite basic too. However, the evening meals were excellent. Nice little balcony in our room, but it overlooked a bar next door that was showing the world... More

Now staying at the hotel Simplon in Brig (4 July). Found the staff to be very unfriendly, not like other hotels no "hello or had a good day". Staying with the Great Railway Journey and cannot believe we have to order our evening meal TWO days in advance, then to be told please try and remember what you ordered. The... More

Convenient place in the centre of the town. Good food and helpful staff. My room was comfortable and the shower room very modern. As a solo traveller I had a room at the front, overlooking the square. Because of the acoustics of the tall buildngs voices carried and it was noisy, especially on the Saturday night. Rooms at the back... More

Like many other reviewers, we stayed here during a Great Rail Journeys tour. It's a really well-run family hotel and we would recommend it to anyone. The food was good and our room (402) was spacious and comfortable - good bed, nice sitting area and balcony. One or two of our fellow-travellers who were on the top floor did comment... More

Visited on a Great Rail Holiday. At dinner on the first night, it started to snow and by the time we went to bed, it was laying quite well. Very early next morning we heard a rumbling noise, and discovered 2 small snowploughs zipping around the square. From our vantage point on the top floor we could see just how... More

Well-run family hotel in the heart of Brig. We visited as part of the Great Rail Journeys Glacier Express winter tour and very much enjoyed our stay here. Free wifi available in the reception area brought us together in groups each evening rather than logging-on in our rooms, which was nice. The room had a curious layout and the bedclothes... More

Stayed in this hotel as part of the GRJ trip on the Glacier Express in winter. This is a really good hotel and the rooms are neat and tidy, spacious and well presented. We stayed in room 402 and although this room has that floor's fire escape door through it this door cannot be accessed by anyone unless the fire... More

We were well received at Hotel Simplon and wanted for nothing. This family hotel within easy walking distance of the station is a good base for exploring this part of Switzerland. Breakfasts were typically continental. Our room was of a reasonable standard but the lighting was very poor and the mini-fridge did not appear to function.

This hotel provided a superb base for part of our Great Rail Journey holiday. It is located a short walk from the station in a quieter part of the town. It was spotlessly clean throughout, and we were well cared for by the efficient and friendly staff. Our room on the fourth floor at the rear was good, with a... More
