My roommate and I had the privilege to stay in the Hayloft over our Christmas break and it was truly one of the best places we have ever visited. Kerry and Peter made us feel at home and their house was absolutely adorable and very well-kept. They talked with us and gave us great advice on where to go in... More

If you do not fall under the spell of the Hayloft, then you cannot possibly be ever contented. From the cosiness oozing from every corner to Kerry's unique sense of humour and Peter's efficiency and patience, everything will be done, seemingly effortlessly (but we know it requires 24/7 hard work and commitment) to make your stay a memorable one.

I almost didn't want to write a review, lest The Hayloft gets overrun with visitors and I won't be able to get a room the next time! But the charm and comfort that makes this B and B in Kandersteg so special is thanks to the lovely owners of the Hayloft, Kerry and Peter! They gave us lots of great... More

Great place, great hosts! I can highly recommend The Hayloft to anyone looking for a charming and authentic place to stay in the Swiss alps. We spent 2 days in Kandersteg, did some hiking, enjoyed a relaxing time in the wooden hot tub and interesting chats with Kerry and Peter. Thanks again, it was a wonderful weekend.

It is difficult to find yet another way of explaining the lure of The Hayloft when it has been done so many times before by so many different people. It is indeed a special place, if you understand what you are looking for. It is surrounded by impressive peaks, waterfalls, wildlife and endless alpine walks of incredible beauty – precisely...

Our family loved this wonderful bed and breakfast. The hayloft was so comfortable and beautifully restored. We enjoyed taking walks in the village and in the mountains. The location was excellent. Our hosts were always helpful, fun and interesting, and their breakfasts were delicious and wholesome. We intend to return to this delightful place.

The restoration of the Hayloft has been well done. It is a charming, if quirky property, set in a quiet part of the Kandersteg valley, only a short walking distance from the village. The physical surroundings confirm that you are in Switzerland but, otherwise, you might think you were tucked away in an English village. The style and ambience is... More

Thank you for choosing to review our B&B. We very much appreciate the fact that The Hayloft has won Tripadvisor awards, however we now are experiencing many travellers that book a stay at The Hayloft because they believe we are the “best” and “#1”, without having done any research as to what we offer, in terms of food or accommodation....

From the moment we arrived at The Hayloft, I was smitten. We stayed in The Hayloft Room. This room was like our own little cabin. It was clean, comfortable and modernized, yet rustic and reminiscent of its days as an actual hayloft. Charming details such as original hardware on the doors and windows and original wood walls added to the... More

Just one more addition to the chorus of praise for the Hayloft -- we couldn't have asked for a more lovely, welcoming place to stay, in what has to be one of the prettiest valleys in the world. A 500+ year old traditional Swiss farmhouse that has been beautifully and tastefully updated, private bathrooms, a delicious and ample breakfast, two... More
