I spent there only one night, but it was simply perfect. The room was small but warm, welcoming, looking like a wooden puppet house, very clean and cosy. Sunday morning we woke up late for breakfast, but still they let us in and fed us. I've been in Leukerbad many times, but this was definitely the cutest place.

We chose this hotel because it is conveniently situated in the town centre - close to the thermal baths. We booked a family room which was actually 2 connecting rooms with 4 single beds - quite cramped for a family of 4. The beds made lots of noise when one tossed and turned, and caused disturbance to our sleep. Plastic... More

The hotel is situated close to the centre of the town, the ice hockey rink and the Gemmi cable car. The rooms are simple, traitional pine ceilings, furniture and beds. Our rooms which were superior had small balconies and a little more floor space. The breakfast was good with different types of fresh bread, local cheeses as well as the... More

Hotel Derby, Leukerbad Switzerland First of all, this hotel seems very overrated to me. I have travelled all over Switzerland and can't remember the last time I went to a hotel that was as much of a disappointment as this one. The pictures don't really reflect how the place looks. The rooms were tiny and undecorated. Stepping into the elevator... More

We spend a weekend in Leukerbad and we choose hotel Derby because of the review we read about this hotel. The price is not to big, compared with the normal suisse rates. The position of the hotel was very good for us, close to the Gemmi lift and Burgerbad. Very clean room, we had a very nice view from our... More

The staff was very friendly and spoke, besides German, also French and a bit of Italian, a thing we really appreciated as we come from the iItalian-speaking part of Switzerland. This was a very positive surprise because we noticed straightaway that several people working in the touristic sector in the German-speaking part of Wallis often expressed themselves in Swiss-German only...

No queen size bed in that room, partners have to sleep on each on his side. Poor quality of matresses, a big hole caused a painful wake up. TV remote control absent, switch on the TV... More
