“Schweizerhof is back: a new-old top address for Bern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2011 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights. Perfectly located as all "Schweizerhof", a successful blend of tradition and modern design, with the latest room functionalities (Nespresso machine in all room categories, HD tv, multimedia station incl. iPhone Bluetooth connection, and much more). What a blessing for Bern!

I have just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday skiing at this wonderful hotel.

Kandersteg itself is a beautiful town, quite small and not terribly "touristy". Only a few bars and restaurants but you certainly get "Quality" rather than "Quantity".

The Schweizerhof hotel is run by the Kunzi family who pride themselves on giving you a wonderful stay with them. It is a traditional rustic Swiss hotel which is attractively furnished and very comfortable, we had a large double room with two balconies and a huge en-suite bathroom.

Food at The Schweizerhof is excellent, every night there is an innovative and different menu which is cooked to perfection by their fantastic Portugese chef. The tastes are quite sophisticated, with traditional Swiss food being served so children should ask for other meals to be prepared early on in the day.

The nearby pistes are easy to walk to, or if you're feeling lazy you can catch the small bus, the price of which is covered in your ski pass. Novice or Expert, there are runs to please everyone, and the views are amazing.

We also took a train journey to nearby Zermatt to see the Matterhorn and go toboganing which was well worth the money and the scenery was breath-taking. Ask at the train station in Kandersteg for the best deals for the trip.

All in all I had an absolutely wonderful time in Kandersteg and would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel and resort to others!
