“The home away from home ... "”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

The warm hospitality and friendliness of all their staff is unbeatable (our heartfelt thanks to Stephen and Cecilia for telling us some of the best kept secrets of Engelberg). Spacious and well-equipped room as well as the cozy and beautiful decor lounge area made us feel so at home. Spannort has one of the loveliest restaurants in Engelberg, which serves great quality food with wonderful ambience. Definitely a must-try for honeymooners.

I stayed at the Spannort for one night during a hiking tour. After several days staying in mountain inns, i wanted a night in somewhere a bit more comfortable for a change, and that's exactly what I got. I was given a room with a balcony on the third floor at the back of the hotel. No views to speak of, but that's not what I was looking for.

The bed itself was a great size for one (though if the room is also used as a double it would be on the small size). The room also had a "lounge" corner with a table and seating for three or four people. The shower was excellent, and was equipped with a collapsible clothes rail, very handy for drying wet gear after a day in the mountains.

I didn't use the restaurant, but the breakfast buffet was very good. Staff at reception were very friendly and chatty - two different receptionists asked me about my hike, where I was going, what I had seen and so on - the kind of nice personal touch that makes all the difference. I would stay there again if I was back in Engelberg.

My adult daughter and I stayed at the Spannort Hotel (Engelberg) in May of 2010 – in two very affordable single rooms.

We were extremely pleased with our warm welcome and large, clean rooms (each with a balcony). Anette and Cecilia were wonderful and spoke good English. The Breakfast Room and lounge were charming. Breakfast was delicious, and the food selection was good.

We also ate in the dining room. Chef Patrice Biberian’s food was superb – far superior to all other restaurants at which we ate in Engelberg!

We HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

We spend the new year holiday in Engelberg. Spannort was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were just perfect. Warm and clean with comfy duvets and pillows. I loved waking up and being able to look up on the mountain hills. We rented skies for a couple of days from a sports store just across the street where hotel guests got a discount.

We had selected half board and the meals were fantastic. The chef, Patrice Biberian, served us dinners that was almost just worth the trip. We would strongly recommend anyone staying at Spannort to go with the half board.

The newly renovated lounge area was perfect for reading, taking an evening drink or just looking at the streetlife.

The staff were very attentive and service minded and the owner's family worked hard make us feel like at home.

I recently travelled with 6 friends to the resort of Engelberg for the first time for a long weekend skiing. We are all seasoned skiers who have stayed in both good and bad hotels across the Alps over the years. We chose the Spannort Hotel over the internet and were impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Our rooms were great offering us just what we needed - a comfortable bed with fluffy pillows and duvet, a decent shower and a balcony big enough to sit out on if needed. The reception area (recently refurbished) was a pleasant surprise, with chill out areas for groups on comfy sofas and chairs and we also spotted a wii. The best however I've saved till last, and this is the restaurant. It looks very rustic and charming from the outside, but the chef excelled himself presenting modern and traditional food to a very high standard that easily was our best meal during our stay in Engelberg. Overall we were all extremely impressed by the hotel and would not hesistate to return again, particularly if they put in the promised hot tub for next season! Thanks for a great holiday.
