This is a warm and friendly place to stay in a beautiful area. As other reviewers have said; Michelle and her daughter (Christina) are wonderful hosts and work very hard to ensure that their guests enjoy themselves. The rooms are clean and pleasant and Michelle's wonderful art work decorates the hotel throughout. Breakfast is continental but substantial and the permanent... More

This hotel is an excellent place to stay in Fiesch. Probably one of the most friendly welcoming hotels I have stayed in for a long time. The rooms are bright and airy and a good breakfast is provided. Although the hotel does not offer dinner, the owners make plenty of good suggestions for where to eat. Michele and Christine are...

Absolutely loved this hotel. Well, it's actually more of a chalet I guess - warm, inviting and bedecked in geraniums. The owner Michelle, and her daughter were so friendly and helpful. We wanted to walk around the absolutely brilliant Aletsch Glacier and had a million questions on the logistics. All were answered patiently, accurately and with a genuine smile. Breakfast... More

Friendly staff, small but comfortable room. They cooked gluten free bread for my breakfast which was quite nice, and the breakfast was a good meal with plenty of options. My room faced the waterfall, and noise of the river made it a little hard to sleep at night.

We stayed here one night in early September so we could go up and have a look at the glacier in the morning. Rooms are basic but spacious, with a small flat screen TV with a few English channels. Our room overlooked the river, which was no louder at night than a typical hotel air conditioner (there was no air-con... More

Arriving by car we appreciated the large parking area by the hotel. Although we were early our room was ready for us and we were shown in by Phineka who was extremely friendly and very helpful. Our room was one of the "superior" ones on the ground floor with a patio area and garden. There were two sun loungers, two... More

Part-owner Phineke runs it more like a B&B. She is warm and extremely helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and the room it was served in, which is also a bar for guests, has a great view and was wonderful for playing one of the board games she keeps on-hand. The rooms are a bit small, but they are clean and... More

Rooms are small, but clean and mine had a balcony with a very nice view over the river flowing just behind the hotel. To be honest i found it a bit difficult to sleep with the river noise, lucky i had some ear plugs, but i guess some people may enjoy it. Excellent bfast and very nice and accommodating staff....

We were a couple of friends in Fiesch only for a short stay and booked Derby because of price / proximity to center / and a couple of recommendations. Were we pleasantly surprised that not only everything heard / promised was there, but that service and friendliness are the standard terms with which Phineke, the lady of the thouse, runs... More
