“Lives up to its reputation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

A very nice hotel with good staff and a family atmosphere. We stayed in a suite delux plus
which was the best. Terrific views of the mountains and town, directly opposite the glacier.
so, the balcony was facing south and east and the room had plenty of space and light.
Food was tasty and varied over the 5 nights we dined and breakfast hit the spot each
morning. The family were very willing and attentive. Would return in the winter, when the
skiing etc must be tops. The region speaks for itself, Fantastic!

Room Tip: All of the rooms have fine views The suites are best but are more expensive, of course!

Spent a weekend mixing business and family in the wonderfully placed hotel amongst the Swiss "Berner Oberland" mountains. I won't comment on the surroundings, they're part of the beauty of nature in this regions. Mountain lovers will be enchanted!
The hotel and it's restaurants are both excellent, service is friendly and top class. The experiencd barman will host you and serve drinks as you relax by the open fireplace, very professional waiters and waitresses will accompany you all through you multiple-course lunch or dinner, making everything easy and comfortable for you.
I also had an emergency situation when I mistakenly slashed my left hand's index finger open with a sharp pen-knife (swiss made, of course!). I was immediately teken care of by a long term nurse now part of the hotel's team, mended me in a professional way and "monitored" my finger until the next day!
The hotel also has a shuttle-bus down to the town's train station where you can set off to all kinds of rides and trecks.

This place has a feeling like your home, only with a great Chef! The staff is amazing, every request was handled with ease.a stress free atmosphere. Great access to ski school for young ones...just a fun walk on a nice path. The views are breathtaking, especially the moon lit clear nights. Bus for town stops right at the hotel,town is a five minute walk down hill,which we did often. They also have there own shuttle,which when we did ask for, they accommodated. Breakfast was amazing. All three restaurants are outstanding. Afternoons with cake buffet by the fireplace charming! The town is great,hotel gives a free pass to town sports center.watch curling or ice skate. We did,very easy town. I highly recomend kirchbuehl

We loved staying at the :Hotel Kirchbuehl. It is great location to First lifts and quiet neighborhood. We found they will take you to the train if need be and pick you up if you need that as well. They had laundry facilities down the hill if you need that plus they had afternoon refreshments. We would stay there again and again.

Very nice hotel - not too far away from the cable railway, there is always a bus to bring you down to the small and nice village. You can ski directly to the hotel if you know the way, very comfortable. Very clean, very good food, nice rooms, friendly staff, what do you need more? The only thing i noted in the hotel that the drinks are expensive, especially wine and cocktails.

Room Tip: The hotel was very quiet, if you sleep on the first floor you can hear the music downstairs, but the...

The location of this small hotel, about 2 Km out of town, gives you peace and quiet beyond what you'll have in any other lodging in the area. Views are also the best (we wandered into several other hotels). The primary dining room has excellent food with stunning views. But the standard hotel rooms are way too small. On the other hand, the hotel has several condos which are much larger, of course, but for some reason we couldn't explain, they are cheaper. Insist on one with a mountain view. You'll use your car to go anywhere, and parking downtown can be a challenge; but the awesom location of the hotel will make all that problem insignificant. We hope to return here another time. Hard to find this hotel in guide books but is featured in the one called Ralais de Silence, or "Quiet Inns." Pack your bags and your skis (winter) or hiking shoes (in other seasons.) Run to your nearest Swiss Air flight to Zurich.

Room Tip: Book only a condo facing the tallest mountains, and preferably up the hill behind the hotel.
