“You will remember and talk about this forever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We stayed four nights in the Grand Hotel. The location is beautiful, the drive up absolutely breathtaking (literally), and the staff very friendly. If you like a bit of seclusion, lots of hiking options, and alpine scenery, this is the place for you.

Denise and Nicolas looked after us extremely well, even cooking kid friendly meals for our son (with vegetables he actually ate). The room was very nice and had plenty of space for the whole family, with a view of the goats playing nearby and mountains all around. Our older son treated the giant tub as his personal swimming pool. We also took advantage of the sauna and steam baths. The outdoor hot pots also looked very tempting, but we didn't get a chance to give them a try.

It's not cheap, but if you think about the fact that everything there was brought up that tiny mountain road and that you will remember this place for a lifetime, it's worth it.

Room Tip: You can choose from several levels of rooms - from simple to grand to extravagant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

Stayed here for one night whilst hiking the Alpine Pass Route. Had booked a room in the Berghaus part of the building, this has the basic rooms but we found them to be perfectly comfortable with everything we needed for one night. There are options to stay in either of two other buildings which looked more like traditional hotels. Use of all the facilities was available to us, such as sauna etc The location is truly stunning, nestled in a clearing deep in the valley, we had walked from Murren and were tired/bit dirty! but we were given a warm welcome by the staff. Sitting in the early evening sunshine with a beer then having a simple home cooked but delicious meal we felt very lucky! Breakfast too was of the usual Swiss quality. This was the most basic guesthouse we stayed in but turned out to be our favourite due to the remoteness and warm welcome of the staff, a special place.

Stayed July 2011, traveled as a couple

Kiental is one of the most beautiful (> widly romantic) valleys in the Bernese Oberland. The hotel is located on a little plateau at the end of the valley. It is a perfect starting point for amazingly beautiful mountain hikes. There is also a play ground for kids (swings, slide).
The hotel is newly renovated. Everything is sparkling clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only shortcoming is the restaurant: the menu sounded very interesting - even for us as vegetarians - but the food it self was very bland. Breakfast however was very good (fresh fruit, cereal, nice cheese and bread).

  • Liked — Romantic location off the beaten track
  • Disliked — The food at the restaurant
