“Greatly enjoyed staying in this B&B”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Very good hotel in a central location in Kandersteg. The owner Thomas was very helpful and friendly. He answered our many questions and also helped us transport our bags when we needed to catch a train at the station. The staff was also very friendly and genuinely nice. When we told them we were in a rush to leave and had a long journey, they managed to prepare dinner for us in record time, which was greatly appreciated.

The room was large and comfortable. The beds were good and afforded us a good night's sleep after the days activity of snow walking and cross country skiing.

We have absolutely no complaints about this place and would be happy to stay here again!

We spent a night here after having to hike out of the Alps early due to an incoming snow storm. It's definitely an old fashioned place that could use a bit of renovation, but it was very clean and cozy. The building is a bit creaky, so be prepared for that. There is a nice communal entertainment room with a large LCD TV, chess table, and lots of books and board games in various languages. The breakfast was pretty standard European buffet, but it was my first exposure to Ovalmaltine crunchy cream!

We stayed for 7 days at this traditional Swiss family hotel & enjoyed our time very much. Owners Peter & Thomas plus great support staff made us very welcome. Great hospitality & good friendly service.
We discovered that Peter had spent time as a Chef in New Zealand & his chef skills were displayed in the evening meals & breakfasts we were given. They were very helpful to give us good ideas where to do our alpine walks & the best way to get there & back. The Chairlift Pass was very worthwhile.
Our room on 1st floor was comfortable with views of the mountains plus a small balcony. The hotel is centrally located so easy to get to from rail station(10mins walk) & close to COOP supermarket for any extras. Try the bakery café along the road for delicious cakes, coffee & chocolates.
Highly recommended by two Kiwis on Swiss adventure holiday!!

Didn't stay in the hotel, but just visited the restaurant. The restaurant is ok. Because of the rain, some tourists played cards there to spend the time as well. We ordered chicken nugget and burger. Both were nothing better than fastfood store. The only good thing we found was the dessert. We ordered a plate of crepe with different berries and ice cream. it tasted very good. On the whole, it got average mark just because of the dessert. May go there again only for the dessert.
