“Good value place run by nice homely couple with great views.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The location is just outside of the centre of kandersteg and 10 mn walk from the trainstation. The place has nice rooms . Our room had an extra corner with a sofa and tv. Only 5 channels. But the view was beautiful. The room was clean and had a bathroom with tub the tiles were a bit outdated but no big issue. Downstairs there is a bar/ restaurantwhere they make nice pizzas. I would recommend this place!

Great location, half way between Kandersteg International Scout Centre and the village. This is a friendly, small, family run hotel. The rooms are clean and functional, ask for one with balcony that is big enough to sit on.

Never mind any of that stuff, the rösti are phenomenal!

Quiet hotel with amazing view (we had a room overlooking the parking/mountains). Stayed one night and slept peacefully, large room with sofa and TV. Kandersteg is stunning and this hotel was very friendly. As always in Switzerland there are no vegetables for breakfast but their home made waldbeer jam was amazing. The hotel is past the main strip but a walk into the main area takes less than 5 minutes.

It isn't located on the busiest street but this hotel is set on a quiet and beautiful surrounding overlooking a stream that flows into a small pond. There is an onsite free parking space and a family-run restaurant. We were a couple of hours early but they still let us checked-in. Room was clean and looked very new. It was a very pleasant stay.

It's a very comfortable, family-ran little hotel with very good food. The rooms were light and friendly, most have a balcony; the view in the mornings is breathtaking!! Bathrooms can be a bit small in some rooms, but all have excellent water pressure!! Pets are welcome as well and they offer outdoor and indoor play areas for children. There is a ski-room downstairs w/showers and lockers, and there is parking for guests behind the hotel.
We can definitely recommend this hotel and will go back when given the opportunity.

What can I say, our stay here was excellent in all ways. We arrived after 2pm and after checking in they were still serving a very nice lunch.
The room has obviously been renovated recently and was very comfortable with a small balcony and some amazing views.
A cosy comfortable bar, a glassed in sunroom on the back and a terrace on the side give you plenty of options for where to have your meal.
Free parking and free internet just top it off.
All in all a very friendly family run place with staff that speak excellent English.
