Hotel Derby, Leukerbad Switzerland

First of all, this hotel seems very overrated to me. I have travelled all over Switzerland and can't remember the last time I went to a hotel that was as much of a disappointment as this one. The pictures don't really reflect how the place looks. The rooms were tiny and undecorated. Stepping into the elevator depressed me, with scratched graffiti in the walls and a dirty floor. I found the front desk staff uninterested and unhelpful. Yes it is cheaper than most places in the town, but in this case, you really do get what you pay for. I'd take a pass on this place.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

We spend a weekend in Leukerbad and we choose hotel Derby because of the review we read about this hotel. The price is not to big, compared with the normal suisse rates. The position of the hotel was very good for us, close to the Gemmi lift and Burgerbad. Very clean room, we had a very nice view from our balcony, very very hot in the room and quite good breakfast. Excellent staff, very friendly, they gave us all the indications we need and good advices about the ski lifts.

The staff was very friendly and spoke, besides German, also French and a bit of Italian, a thing we really appreciated as we come from the iItalian-speaking part of Switzerland. This was a very positive surprise because we noticed straightaway that several people working in the touristic sector in the German-speaking part of Wallis often expressed themselves in Swiss-German only (and this often happens also in other German-speaking areas of Switzerland...)!
Nice building, Swiss-style with wooden walls and furniture, it makes you feel at home! Nice rooms with balcony.
Good location, a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.
Delicious and abundant breakfast.
I would have given more than two stars to this hotel!

The only negative part was the fact that the bed was not queen-sized but two single beds one next to the other.

Still, I would advise it to everyone!

We were given free upgrade to a larger room (have 1 baby). Found few curly hair in the shower on arrival, whashed them away. No queen size bed in that room, partners have to sleep on each on his side. Poor quality of matresses, a big hole caused a painful wake up.
TV remote control absent, switch on the TV out of service.
An very copious breakfast with excellent croissant partly balanced the weak points mentioned before.
Service was ok.

I booked Hotel Derby before a week of arrival, they assigned us to live in the building next to Hotel Derby call "Apparthotel Daubenhorn" 3/F

The building have lift service, the appartment is big & clean, but the view from my room not wide enough

My appartment contains balcony, open kitchen, a lot of kitchen wares, it can cook by ourself in appartment. It's nice

The hotel is not located at the center of leukerbad (i.e. the bus terminal area), by walk about 3-5 minutes from center to hotel, but who care this a minute of time in this relaxing town?

The value is about 30-40 chf cheaper than the hotel locate in central area, contains breakfast, I think it's very valuable for me!!
