Great discovery for us! Beautiful chalet a bit outside Kandersteg. Very nice rooms and very friendly welcoming staff. Don't miss outside supper with very appealing menus. Other great news: you can use the spa next door which is beautiful (Relais et Chateaux).

The Ruedihus and its setting are breathtaking in their quaint beauty, if you appreciate what is truly old and yet lovingly modified to be comfortable for today's guests. If you are tall, you may wish to request a room with higher ceilings, as some of the original spaces will require that you duck. However, opening a low, heavy door that is centuries old, walking up an old wooden staircase, using an ancient massive key to open an outside door after hours, are for us part of the charm and magic of this special place. If you select half-board you may eat at either the Doldenhorn or Ruedihus. The Doldenhorn dining room is very elegant and food and service are memorable. Unfortunately it was closed one night of our stay. The menu of the Ruedihus is skewed toward traditional Swiss offerings; the dining room there is what makes the meals most memorable. It is a large space with original uneven wood floors, windows with beautiful old panes, all set with white linen and lovely crystal. It is reminiscent of Colonial Williamsburg and most romantic. We love this place, and have returned many times. Hikers, ask at the front desk for a reservation on the shuttlebus to the Gasterntal. It is a breathtaking outing not to be missed!

Got invited by my wife for my birthday to this wonderful place .... A real mountain Swiss place to enjoy. Rooms are made out of wood (alpine cottage style) and clean. Personal is ready to run the extra mile which is highly appreciable. Food is very local and mountain like and tasty. Really a nice place to enjoy for a week end.

Having visited Kandersteg for 30 years, I eventually got around to staying in this hotel.. and, very disappointingly, it was not nearly as good as it promised to be. The location and the look of the building was idyllic, but you let yourselves down. Housekeeping / Rooms - Few things... Clutter - There is not a surface to put anything down on, everything is full of clutter... I know it is meant to be charming, but it really is just annoying... we need somewhere to put out case. Lazy room cleaning - the linen was not changed in 5 days, and glasses were never washed, come on.. Rooms were rough and ready, not really that charming, for example, I do not appreciate getting cut on the rough wood on the bathroom door. Food Yes, it is Swiss and really the fact that you only serve Swiss produce is quirky, at first, then it simply becomes annoying... also, you don't only serve Swiss, there was tea and coffee on offer... so why not gin... also don't make your guests feel like idiots for asking, it is you that are unusual, not them! The dining room was full of flies the one morning we breakfasted there. I was horrified, it was so unpleasant we simply could not eat there, and we all left. When I mentioned that later, we were told it was because there was a stable next door... so beware. Hidden Charges Water, really, come on. You were underhand. Every time we asked for water as HOTEL GUESTS we got charged a great deal, that is just underhand and deceptive. We did complain at check out and it was taken off the bill... not without some discussion!

Very special place with a lot of character and charm. The house is an old 18th century chalet. Everything is nice and cosy and we felt very well in the place. As a family of four, we hade the small adjacent chalet for us in a all wood spacious room. Hospitality and welcome were particularly positive. We also appreciated the swimming pool and spa located at next door Doldenhorn which is owned by the same family. We will definitely come back
