“Excellent, Modern, Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Brig was our last stop in Switzerland before heading down to Milan. I would definitely recommend firstly Brig as a town to stop over rather than Visp being much quieter and having much less traffic than Visp.

My family initially wanted to stay in Brig as it was the cheaper option than staying in Vermatt. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we needed to head down to Italy much earlier.

I stayed at the 5th floor of this hotel which was the suite floor. My family of 4 adults were very comfortable in this space which was clean, comfortable and perfect for the night's rest after a 7 hour journey on board the Glacier Express from St Moritz.

The staff was helpful, polite and friendly. They conversed well in English and was very very helpful.

Wifi was reliable and fast. Breakfast spread was pretty basic but when we went down really early for our breakfast, our tables were set to a very nice welcome.

My family truly enjoyed our stay at THE BEST HOTEL in Brig! Choose to stay here and you won't regret it!

We decided to stay in Brig as a base for a ski holiday. The town is very well situated close to a number of very nice little known ski areas within 30 minutes drive or simple transfers on bus and train.
Stefan runs an excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are comfortable. The restaurant both for breakfast and especially dinner is exceptional. They also have a very good local and international wine list sensibly priced.
I would thoroughly recommend the town and this hotel has an excellent base to explore a very beautiful part of Switzerland winter or summer.

I stayed here briefly, an overnight stop between trains. Chose the hotel because it was close to the station. I was very impressed, it had a nice atmosphere and seemed well run.

The room was smart, recently refurbished. Well-lit, comfortable and plenty of storage space. Reliable wifi, soft-drinks and posh coffee machine included in room price. Good breakfast including some hot dishes.

So a good choice. I hope to go back for a longer stay soon.

We enjoyed 2 nights here recently and were very immpressed. The room we had had recently been refurbished and the restaurant was being done as well so now the place is up to date,as the last time we stayed here the only thing that needed upgrading was the room so now it's all good!

We have been staying at this hotel at various times of the year for the last 5 years and have always found it to be of a high standard. It's location is great, close to the Railway Station but in a quiet street. The staff are always very efficient and friendly and the whole hotel is clean and well cared for. The self service breakfast choice and evening meals are excellent. The rooms have recently been refurbished and have the extras you would expect from a far more expensive establishment including free Wifi, coffee/tea machines, new super comfortable beds and TV's which include the main UK channels so no need to miss out on your favourite programmes. We will definitely continue staying here in the future.

Room Tip: The 'Superior' double rooms have extra space with a larger bed and a sofa.

As one of the first groups to stay in the Ambassador after it's renovation (dec 2012) I was a little concerned at what I would find. I shouldn't have worried, the rooms are now of a standard usually found at hotels with higher ratings. Wonderfully comfortable beds, large tvs with many channels and even coffee machines in the rooms. A bathroom that I would be happy with in my own home.
The staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for the ladies on reception, they are very knowledgeable about the area and happy to help with any arrangements you want to make. The restaurant and bar staff get just the right balance between friendly and proffesional and the food is the best I've had at any hotel in Switzerland.
Location is perfect, central but quiet. My stay was for business but would happily return for a holiday.

Our family of 4 visited Brig in July and stayed at the Ambassador hotel for 2 nights. They have a great location that is walking distance from the train station and central to all things in Brig.

Stefan the owner is friendly and helpful. Their food is fantastic and the service in the restaurant is great. I would highly recommend staying with Stefan and family at the Ambassador Hotel
