We can only confirm the previous good reports.
We are a young couple without children and we booked our holidays with Kuoni-UK. We 've just came back from Alpina. We spent an unforgetable week from 27 Dec 07 to 03 Jan 2008 in Alpina. The compination of the excellent service and the beautifull location made our stay amassing.
The hotel is the perfect place to be for relaxing holidays. The hospitality is fabulous. We have to say that it was the best service we ever had in a hotel and we have not experince such a atmosphere before. The owners and staff are so friendly. They took care of everything and they provided accurate advice when needed. Their lovely attitude creates a relaxing atmosphere and you really feel like at home. They were always there to help and responded to our requests immediately. Their English is good and we had no problems in communication.
There was a number of families with children who appeared to enjoy their time. It was obvious that the staff was taking particular care of them as well.
The food was amassing. The dinner was not to be missed. It was so delicious and so much..... There was a variety of dishes and every diner had a different menu. The food was perfectly cooked.
We stayed in a superior room. It was very clean, spacious, quiet and the view was amassing. There was also a good size balcony.
The location is perfect and the hotel is within a walking distance (5-10 min) from the village centre, rail station, lifts. Opposite to the hotel there is a ski store where you can hire equipment. Also, there is a swimming poolr in 5 min walking distance from Alpina.
Apparently as a 2 stars hotel the infrastructure is not modern but provides all you need for holidays. We felt that the set up was exactly what you need for relaxing holidays in such a place, giving the sense of a traditional Swiss hotel.
We have to say that we have been in a number of hotels with 4 and 5 stars, but we have never seen such hospitality. If we would choose between the Alpina hotel and other 4 or 5 stars hotels, we would definitely choose Alpina again. We will be back.....
We strongly recommend Alpina if you go to Kandersteg.
