We rented their ferienwohnung as we there is one double bedroom and one triple bedroom. The apartment is big, with a nice living room area. The kitchen is lovely with a view over the field. The bathroom is big, with the shower and toilet included. I have to say the apartment was immaculate including the oven and the fridge. And...

Very friendly staff in a nice simple hotel. Rooms with enough space , outdated but good. Playground for the kids outside and very quiet, lost up in the mountains. So peaceful. Small indoor pool , nice breakfast, very friendly staff! Dinner served very quickly, good and good quantities. Will come back.

Stayed here as part of a week-long workshop. Freddy, the chef, was so kind and considerate with respect to my gluten intolerance (celiac disease), and all the restaurant staff went out of their way to make sure I could safely eat every meal. They even made gluten free ravioli for me one night! What an exceptional place. Thanks again!

We decided to stay over in hotel Kaubad, a few minutes from the town of Appenzell - and never regretted it. We enjoyed the indoor pool and the sauna. Everything is very simple but the hotel offers very good value for money. The free snacks and tea available, is a friendly gesture. As it snowed overnight, we enjoyed hiking in...

Had a very nice stay in this hotel. Very friendly stuff, the owner is a great cook and he offered very nice variety of food for the 5 days of my stay there. The hotel is perfectly located in a valley and you can hike up in different directions (like Scheidegg) for better views! The hotel has a free wi...

We were traveling in the area (Gontenbad) when we realized too late the hotel we usually frequent in that area was closed for the holiday. The first place we found which was available was the Kaubad, so we reserved a room without knowing a thing about the place. What a pleasant surprise. If is a fantastic hotel, with excellent cuisine,...

I know Switzerland well (my father was Swiss) and I was bringing my partner to Switzerland for his first visit. I was obviously really keen that he should stay somewhere typically Swiss and enjoy lovely views over mountains and countryside. I wanted so much to show how beautiful it is and for the hotel to live up to the usual...

It's the second time in a year that I return back to Hotel Kaubad and again another wonderful stay! This time a lot of snow was awaiting for me (snow tires required to reach the hotel, to overcome the 4km sloping up road...), but the same kindness of the staff, the same wonderful restaurant offering you the best specialities of...

I just returned from a 3 day workshop at the Hotel Kaubad in Appenzell-Kau. The hotel is located in a remote location, yet accessible by car. The well-sized rooms feature basic, but comfortable decor and are very clean. The service staff is very helpful, friendly and attentive.

“Best for gluten free food”

“Don't go at all, but if you do then ensure you have a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor (3rd is too hot in summer as in the roof) and the first floor has not view other than the trees. Also, make absolutely sure that your room looks out of the FRONT of the hotel and not the back ............ which is the horrible car park! What ever you do DON'T STAY IN THE APARTMENTS (unless you can be 100% sure they have been redecorated since June 2013!”
