We stayed as part of a walking holiday in July 2010. The Hotel Castle sits above the beautiful Goms valley, an unspoilt area which is good for walking and cross-country skiing.
The hotel looks like two traditional Swiss chalets. Our room was effectively an apartment (and I believe some rent them as apartments), with a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. The balcony looked up the valley - ever changing scenery - and we were woken gently in the morning by the sound of cowbells.
Peter, the owner, and his wife, are working hard to make this a welcoming hotel. Peter, who has conquered Everest (and the photos books are in reception) is a great chef, and delivers beautiful and interesting food with fresh ingredients. Staff are welcoming and great attention is paid to service in the restaurant. Note that Swiss wine doesn't come cheap, but it's very good and very local, and the restaurant will keep a half drunk bottle and bring it back the next day for you.
There is a small wellness area - loungers, jaccuzi, steam room and sauna.
Overall, the hotel is quiet but comfortable. It's up the hillside, so if you're not in a car, do call and ask for a lift from the station. On the plus side it's easy to continue up the hillside and onto the pretty "Gommer Hohenweg" path to Bellwald and higher.
Blitzingen and the Goms Valley are very well placed for valley and mountain walks. The famous Glacier Express travels the valley, but so do the friendly local trains every hour, with stations every three or four minutes, so enjoy the beauty and the peace of this unspoilt area.
I recognise the comments made by the previous reviewer but I agree that Peter is very responsive to feedback. Intentions are good in this growing but new tourist area, and I would like to support the hotel.
Note that the hotel participates in a local "Cesar Ritz" programme. Reflecting the birth area of the famous hotelier you can have a special meal on a special table if you're passing.
