There are many excellent small hotels in Switzerland but this one is made very special by Vrona and her husband. The hotel is well appointed with comfortable rooms and everything kept spotlessly clean. The meals were all excellent and although the menu is fixed they are happy to change the menu to suit individual likes (for instance I don't eat... More

We chose this family-run hotel because we had been really fond of it last time we visited (1 year ago). The rooms are small, but cosy and well equipped. So are the bathrooms. Everything is clean, as it should be. What sets it apart from other hotels is the very welcoming atmosphere, the lovely hosts who really go to greath... More

The setting for this hotel is breath taking, although in a small village, it was very interesting to wonder around. Very traditional, quaint, and the views of the mountains are phenomenal. Warm and friendly welcome upon arrival at the hotel, and having arrived by motorbike, we were given access to a locked garage. On offer in the restaurant was a... More

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Nufenen in Ulrichen, a small, picturesque village. The hotel is a restored 1859 building with very clean, comfortable rooms. The owners and staff are very friendly and dedicated to make their guests feel at home. The five course dinner (creamy soup; cheese tart; salad; salmon; ice-cream with baked apple) was not only...

Having just hiked from Guttanen via Grimselpasse to Oberwald we contacted the lovely owner to tell her we had made it that far and would be late arriving as we still had an hour walk in the rain, what an amazing gift to have Veronica arrive with a friend to give us a ride!

We stayed at the hotel Nufenen for one night in June 2015. Two people and four dogs got an exceptionally warm welcome, and we were alloted one of the biggest rooms, which made our stay very comfortable. The hotel is very typical of the area, located in a quiet village, close to the cross-country skiing trails. The owners even offered... More

My husband and I stayed at Nufenen Hotel during our motorcycling holiday in Switzerland and we really enjoyed it! The location is great: you can quickly get to really impressive passes if you go north-east and the beautiful Interlaken area is within reach as well.

I'd almost forgotten about this gem. Stayed there just before Christmas one year. What a beautiful setting. Comfortable beds and delicious food. Not cheap, but definitely worth it. Cross country ski trails just a few steps away. We're both vegetarian, but the chef had no problem conjuring delicious dinners for us each night. Breakfast buffet was expansive and excellent. The...

We have just returned from a week at the Hotel Nufenen and we very highly recommend it. The hotel is run by a husband and wife team with Mrs Imsand-Gyger taking care of the front of house stuff and Mr Imsand-Gyger the kitchen. Mrs Imsand-Gyger is warm, attentive and funny and shows a genuine concern to ensure that each person's... More
