“Charming hotel nestled in Brig”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Wonderfully friendly staff and manager. Very accommodating when we needed to add a room last minute and leave our car overnight while we took a trip on the Glacier Express.
This hotel has a wonderful restaurant attached to it as well as fast and free wifi and breakfast buffet. Would easily recommend this hotel to friends

Good location, clean hotel, spacious room, good breakfast, courteous staff.
The triple room which we had was excellent, with the third bed in a separate enclave with its own tv set so that all 3 persons could watch at the same time on even different channels.
The hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood, yet near to the railway station. We also enjoyed taking a stroll around the surround areas. We enjoyed the breakfast which was simple but with good choices.

Room Tip: The hotel is close to the railway station.

I travel 30 weeks a year, so I know good and bad hotels. this is a friendly spot you can bring the family. stayed in the jr suite rm 43 and it was quite nice, save a view on a side building that was not so good. bathroom nice marble, modern. staff are the way you expect them to be in a 4 or 5 start...but in a 3 star....food in dining room was excellent, event the children menu had an impressive schnitzel dish, aside from the traditional nuggets and pasta. highly reccomended !!

Un-prepossessing building from the outside, extends even to the small Reception but don't be deceived. This hotel is a true gem. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in early March and had a truly memorable and enjoyable stay.

The hotel is well located for train travellers and just a 5 minute wolf from the main square in Brig. We had booked a deluxe room which was of an exceptional standard with every conceivable extra for a comfortable stay. Comfortable bed; huge LED tv with all UK terrestrial channels and several more English ones; tea and coffee machine; modern bathroom with a huge double walk-in shower; and free wifi.

The restaurant offer quite wonderful food only exceeded only by the attentive and friendly service. On both nights we ate there, the restaurant was full but we seemed to be the only residents. It's always a good sign when the locals eat there. It is quite expensive by British standards but truly excellent with a wide range of choices including many local and national dishes. The cheese fondue was particularly good and very good value. The owner and his staff are without fail, both courteous and helpful.

Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic family run hotel close to Brig Bahnhof. The rooms are of a five star standard and excellent value, I was in a suite and would highly recommend it to anyone.....comfortable beds, amazing shower & bathroom with excellent Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The restaurant is also very good but quite expensive (although this is normally the case in all Swiss hotels).

I travel a lot on business, and normally stay in built for purpose business hotel chains, however this is far superior to your standard business hotel, and it has all the extras one needs.

Room Tip: Look for one of their suites...............I was on floor 4 (top floor), and they do not cost a fort...

Stayed one night when in the area to see the Matterhorn. We were well cared for in a way that was very personable and attentive. The hotel was very clean, comfortable, and lovely. Our room was modern, with a comfy bed, sofa, coffee, tea, TV with plenty of English-speaking channels, and sparkling bathroom with built-in hair dryer. The meal in the dining room was excellent and we were provided with a special request above and beyond. Though restored, the hotel's public rooms maintain a wonderful Swiss character. This hotel is within easy walking distance of the train station and all of the town shops. The town of Brig is within easy train distance from many great sites, such as Zermatt, the Matterhorn, glaciers, and many ski destinations.

We came here on a Treyn tour via the glacier express. A family owned hotel with a high standard for food rooms and proximity to the train station. Stefan the owner gave us a super welcome. The meals are imaginative and tasty. Well furnished double room with tea and coffee maker. British tv channels and even an international adapter plug. They thought of everything. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly
