My wife and I were delayed in our arrival to the hotel by 2 metres of snow which effectively closed the Goms valley. Having arrived in Brig with no accommodation we contacted our would be host who immediately responded by organising a room in Brig.
Upon arrival into Blitzingen and warmly welcomed by our host, we finally felt at ease after a interrupted travel plans. While English is not the first language of the hotel (luckily we had a little bit of German) we were grateful of the effort made the staff. We found all the staff of the hotel very friendly and despite the language barrier in some instances, we felt very much at ease around the hotel.
Our hosts are long time locals in the valley and were able to help us with activities outside of the hotel (again the language barrier was overcome)
The rooms were spacious and comfortable and had awesome views of the valley below. The kitchenette was helpful for lunches and snacks and the cleaning staff visited daily to replenish the towels (if needed) and to generally tidy up. They also folded our Pyjama's and placed them neatly on the freshly made bed each day. nice touch.
The highlight was the evening meal and we eagerly looked forward to each sitting. Both my wife and I have different food allergies and the hotel went above and beyond in order to cater for us, which we were very thankful for. Each 4 course meal was well structured, beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Our host is indeed talented in the kitchen. The wait staff were also amazing which made for a 5 star experience.
The spa area was also beautifully presented and while it did fill up in the afternoon, you could usually find a time for some privacy.
To sum up for the week, we had a memorable stay and thoroughly enjoyed our activity week in the Goms valley, We hope one day to return but this will no doubt remain as one of our highlights to our European travel experiences.
