Hotel Hubertus
Ranked #1 of 2 Obergesteln B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Hotel Hubertus is conveniently situated (its about 200 metres from the small station, but they pick you up) and right beside the cross country ski trails in the beautiful Goms Valley. It's a comfortable hotel with a well-sized modern wellness area and great breakfasts. What really grows on you, though, are the staff. There is great attention to detail here and a genuine warmth and kindness. My wife injured her knee skiing and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

The Good:
========

- Clean and cosy Double-rooms (could be a little bit bigger though)
- Excellent Wellness/ Spa Area (sauna, steam sauna, infrared cabin, relaxation room)
- Awesome wine selection
- Good food
- Nearly perfect breakfast
- Perfect location (if you fancy cruising down the several montain passes in the area)
- Friendly staff

The Bad:
=======

- Common areas could use some refurbishement
- Wireless didn't work for two days. Our complaint seemed to fall on deaf ears. No actions taken by the owner to make it work again.

The ugly:
=======

- Very dirty pool.

We stopped here for a night with our two small sons and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was essentially a suite, with a bedroom for us and the boys sleeping on the sofa bed in the other room. We were very happy to find child sized bathrobes in the room, which made trips to the pool much easier. The pool as well as the restaurant were also first rate. Well worth a trip for more than just a stopover on the way to somewhere else.

Stayed for 3 nights in July 2013 and was generally very pleased. The rooms are comfortable and spacious - we had what was effectively a small suite for no additional premium on our package - with impressive views from many along the Goms Valley. The valley itself is a great destination away from touristy bustle.

The service is pleasant and helpful. The food is very good, though somewhat more comfortable with regional cuisine than trying to extend its repertoire to "oriental" dishes like sweet and sour chicken. The wines recommended with dinner were not necessarily to our taste - I found it better to look at the wine menu and use my own judgement. Wine prices are also pretty high, though the selection does extend to some very good bottles if your wallet is big enough.

A lovely hotel, comfortable and with excellent facilities (including a whirlpool, a sauna and a swimming pool, overlooking the snow-covered valley), friendly and competent staff, a great Restaurant and winebar, with direct access to immaculately kept X-country skiing trails! An excellent breakfast too! Obergesteln is fairly close to the eastern end of the Goms valley; it is one of a string of picturesque villages linked by X-country trails, as well as a train track (you can hop on the train to return to the place you started from when you have done enough skiing..).

We stayed three nights as part of a walking holiday, and were well looked after at the Hubertus. It's built in typical Swiss chalet style in a beautiful, un-tourist-swamped valley. Most of our fellow visitors were Swiss, and you know what they say about going where the locals go?

Our room was effectively a small apartment, with a sleeping area, an open-plan kitchen/living room with balcony, and bathroom. In our case the kitchen was not equipped but I believe it's possible to go "self catering" if one chose.

The hotel has a well equipped wellness centre, with sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, pool, and loungers. Perfect after a day's walking.

Finally the meals were imaginative and well cooked. English is not a native language for the serving staff (who speak German) so conversation with staff over dinner was limited but there are English speakers and everyone is very hospitable.

A word of etiquette. Swiss wine is very good but also expensive. No problem - they will take a half drunk bottle after a meal and keep it for you to complete the next day. Helpful, and really nice when it's come from a town within 20 or 30 miles.

The Goms Valley is a growing tourist area - but it's still quiet and natural. Go while you can!

Finally, the valley is well served by the hourly train in each direction. There are excellent walking trails along the valley floor, the valley sides and up into higher plateaus. Walk one way, take the friendly train home. The famous Glacier Express travels the valley (not stopping) full of tourists with panoramic views. But the local trains are comfortable and friendly and travel the same line, so make your own space. Have a great time!

Thank you to the Hotel Hubertus.
