Great hotel right in the center of Brig. Christian (the proprietor) was fantastic, going out of his way to accommodate us. He also encouraged a walk around town in the evening which was great. Breakfast was the traditional Swiss kind except - served at our table rather than a buffet.

Perfect for a short stay (of 1 or 2 nights) Very central / the entrance is a bit tricky to find (almost "behind the building") Breakfast is simple but fine (in a nice "typical" room) The host is a very friendly gentleman who speaks English and engages with the guests Only problem: pity that the wifi did not work very...

On a recent business trip this hotel was my choice in Brig. Brig is a small destination; midway between Geneva and Milan by rail. A good place to break a rail journey; also a great place for a walking holiday in summer and skiing in winter. remember that this town is basically German speaking. If you normally converse in English... More

The atmospere was alsonot pleasant at all, staff members always looked stressful and the owners are very annoying ( they did not even let us... More

A fairly basic old fashioned place. I'm not sure how it compares to others in Brig as far as value or room quality go. Next time I would hunt around to see if we could find something a bit more upmarket and better value. It is well located to the station and we had a back room with little noise... More

The Hotel Du Pont is a very traditional hotel in the upper center of the old town of Brig. The rooms are clean and nice and I can recommend it for family and business. The restaurant serves nice food and local specialties. Free WiFi, with lost of users for meetings not fast enough but for private very much OK. Underground... More

Brig is surrounded by mountains and has many buildings of character. The Du Pont is located in a bustling pedestrianised square containing shops and cafes just a short walk up from the train station. The host was very genial and made us welcome. Our room was quite large and gave views to the mountains beyond. The room furniture was aged... More

First, the town of Brig is lovely, fresh with some beautiful old buildings and towered over by mountains. There was a festival in the center of town the night we got there. It was a good choice for stopping overnight. To get to the hotel from the train station, it's just straight south into town on the road that runs... More

My son and I were in Brig just last week. My son was hunting Ibex in the nearby Swiss Alps and I so enjoyed the friendly staff. Their suggestions of places to see and things to do were great. Christian was so helpful with my many questions. The room was well appointed and the view of the square was lovely.... More

Recommended by a friend and we can recommend to others looking for somewhere to stay in Brig. Relatively inexpensive for Switzerland. Pleasant clean room overlooking the square. Breakfast in the bar shared by locals coming in for morning coffee, Friendly helpful proprietor (Fam. Gemmet) and staff. A short walk up from the railway station
