I was a bit disappointed by this hotel, perhaps because my expectations were unrealistically high having stayed in excellent hotels in Switzerland previously. The location is good, right next to the Castle in Brig. Saying that, Brig is a small place so nowhere is that far from anywhere. Brig itself is centrally located with good transport links and nice views of surrounding mountains, and the castle adds a bit of interest.
The room I had was small and really bare with white walls and a hard floor. I found it quite depressing. Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered if I was with a group or partner, but as a lone traveller I rather dreaded going back to it. I suspect that it had probably gone unused for some time before my stay. It was adquately clean but there were several spiders and when I used the shower a huge millipede fell on me! I was seriously unimpressed by that.
My room had a sink and shower but no toilet, the toilet was located in the corridor just outside. I'm not sure if it was shared or not. It was a bit inconvenient. Annoyingly there was no soap in the toilet sink or the sink in my room - there was liquid soap in the shower but again it was inconvenient when trying to wash the hands.
On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and the super warm duvet meant I was comfortable all night. The staff were pleasant. The breakfast was adequate, a cold buffet, though nothing special.
Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again myself as I did find the room a bit depressing and didn't like all the insect life. But probably in higher season and in a group or with a partner it would be just fine.
