Fabulous, spacious and quality accommodation, no problem. The suite we stayed in had a beautiful view right over the valley and on to the mountains, very Swiss. Late in the afternoon and... More

Stunning views from the outdoor infinity pool and our room, we were on the third floor in a deluxe room with panoramic views. The staff were brilliant and looked after us well and i think they all must speak at least 3 languages very well. We ate in the restaurant both nights and and the food was beautifully presented and... More

This is one of rare cases when the pictures of the hotel and surroundings are even more moderate than reality. The hotel is perfect - rooms, staff, pool, view, food - you name it...

Pool, Wifi, Breakfast, and tons of outdoor things to do nearby. These are the top priorities when we travel with the kids and my wife and I usually suffer a bit. But not the Cambrian.

It's often a disadvantage for a hotel to compete with a travellers previous hotel when the travellers were reluctant to have left their previous destination. This is what happened to us. We had just spent days in the Bernese Oberland, staying in a lovely chalet with picturesque views, cowbells chiming and small mountain trains circling the mountains. When we arrived... More

Booked with friends and as a non skier was attracted by the spa. Initial cock up over rooms was swiftly and brilliantly dealt with by a move to the Presidential Suite. Wow, what a treat; huge suite, 4 balconies, quiet......... Service throughout the hotel was superb. Excellent breakfasts and the tasting menu in the restaurant impressed. Brilliant spa and outside...

Stayed for only one night but the photo of myself in the swimming pool with the mountains and snow behind me has given me my best holiday photo ever !! Breakfast also with a great view of the mountains. Small hotel but pretty.
