We stayed as part of a 12 day walking holiday, arriving on foot after a 18k hike. Reception was off hand. Our room was reasonably large and clean although with extremely uncomfortable beds (good duvets and pillows but mattress like a board). The corridor smelt variously of cigarette smoke - not sure if other guests smoking in their rooms as... More

We arrived at the station as part of a large group. We were met there and our cases were loaded into the minibus and we made the ten minute walk to the hotel. Kandersteg has a lovely feel about the place, nestling in the Alpine valley as it does. We had a warm welcome from Philip on arrival and were... More

When arriving at this hotel, we were early, so they let us leave our luggage with them until we could check in and they didn't mind. Later that night when we came back, we ate dinner at the restaurant which was very good and the bar attached to the restaurant is very nice for hanging out! Breakfast was very good... More

The lounge and the dinning room are from an era and a style that you don't see any more. Grand in scale and grand in impression. The rooms are nice sized and clean. The bathrooms modern and clean. The staff was helpful in directing us to public transportation to the trail head for a hike. We also took the gondola... More

Had a very nice stay here in two large comfortable rooms. Service was very accommodating and pleasant. Food in the restaurant for dinner was excellent and the location was perfect for exploring the area. Bathroom was tiny but room and closet were both a very nice size.

Wonderful time in an outstanding apartment with fantastic views. We stayed in A1 4.5 apartment. 7 people and plenty of room. The apartment was very well furnished and had everything we needed and more. We will be returning. Kids loved the pool and the free wifi in the lobby meant they could chill out on the sofas with the tablet... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week having booked with a travel company. We were allocated a Comfort room which turned out to be an interconnecting room! We were able to hear all sounds from the next room's bathroom.... not at all pleasant...! On day 2 we complained to reception and we were told that the travel company... More

Historical hotel, though the rooms are quite basic, but spacy and have balconies/terrace with the view. Free wi-fi only in the lobby. For those with HB option, dinner is arranged in the huge hall, white tablecloth, silver cultery and candles - feel yourself a real Victorian :) Five-minutes walk from the station, and Coop supermarket is just around the corner....

We visited here as part of a group railway holiday. Hotels public areas were great but bedroom was a disappointment, especially our bathroom, which was old and very dated. The shower head was tiny (about the size of a 50p piece ) certainly not powerful enough and was an over the bath type, not good if you're older (as many... More

On arrival at our hotel we were very impressed with the large comfortable lounge area and fantastic dining area. Later we discovered a lovely outdoor seating area unfortunately it rained the 3days we was there. The rooms were very nice and traditional. Most of the staff were very helpful. and polite but as the time went on we became aware... More
