The location is simply breathtaking. On one side you can see the Matterhorn in the distance across the valley, on the other you are looking over the majestic Aletsch glacier. A tricky decision for which view to ask for, but then again it is simple - you cannot go wrong with either choice! A recent addition to the hotel is the panorama restaurant - the views are amazing. This extension is very modern in style, but sympathetically designed. Huge panes of glass (literally floor to ceiling) and an inviting open-air terrace make this a destination in itself. In short, a magical place to spend some time on the mountain and enjoy the fresh air and good food.
On to practical matters - it probably goes without saying, that given the hotel's location, you need to plan carefully your transfer arrangements. Luggage pick up/drop off service is included but I strongly advise to make precise (this is Switzerland after all!)) arrangements beforehand. Maybe also pack a head-torch as you will probably be tempted to venture out at night to admire the stars above and enjoying seeing the lights of Brig down below in the distance.
The family who run the hotel are very friendly and make you feel welcome. A good selection is offered for breakfast and the main (evening) meals were good too. Basically a fantastic place, and already on my list to re-visit at some point.
