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

Like many reviews already written we stayed as part of the itinerary of Great Rail journeys. We were placed on the fifth floor and our room had a slopping ceiling which I often hit my head on. Not particularly nice as it was a textured coating. We did though have a balcony to sample the clean Swiss air though two... More

Rather an odd hotel, in so much as our room was also the fire escape! The door where the fire escape was, within our room, was locked, and our room key couldn't open it. Also, if the fire alarm activated, would all the guests be able to come into our room (which we kept locked, for obvious reasons) to try... More

I think that these guys rely on business from GRJ. The first room we had was on 5th floor with a view over the mountains and with a small patio, for some reason they found it necessary to lock one one of the these doors making it hard to get out or get air into the room. The shower had... More
