“Highly recommended hotel”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This hotel is run by Claudia and Gerhard Lehrman who give their guests personal and friendly service, nothing seems too much trouble for them. Our tentative request to have breakfast on the terrace was met with an enthusiastic response and from then on for two weeks we enjoyed breakfast with mountain views.

The hotel's restaurant provided excellent meals, beautifully presented with a good choice of menu. The waiters gave attentive, cheery and personal service, always on hand to top up wine and water glasses

Kandersteg is set in a steep sided valley, sometimes sheer cliffs but cable cars can be used to get over these and onto the alpine valleys. Be warned that the walks can still be rather steep!

Room Tip: "Blumlisalp" rooms on the front look out over a meadow to a fantastic mountain view - but...

My husband and I are presently staying in rm 103 at this fantastic hotel for a 9 night stay in the wonderful village of Kandersteg. I was going to wait until we got home to write a review but really couldn't wait! Not only is this the perfect base for exploring and walking but the hotel is without doubt one of the best I have stayed in for a long time, and we travel a lot. The owners Claudia and Gerhard go out of their way to be helpful and pleasant; the attention to detail is beyond belief. The rooms are lovely...we are in a superior double at the front with terrific views and private balcony. We are half-board and thank goodness...loads of choice for breakfast and the dinners...oh the dinners are amazing! The food is simply incredible, four courses every night with choices to suit everyone, of the very best flavours and presentation. The staff are attentive without being over-bearing and make sure that you have everything you wish. I might sound gushing but we are seriously impressed. We will sadly be leaving on Friday but will certainly be returning. Thanks to all.

Room Tip: Superior double at the front.

This was our allotted hotel as part of an organised walking tour around Kandersteg. The food was very good and the service excellent. Located on the edge of the town it was quiet, but Kandersteg is small enough for everywhere to be accessible. The views are as picture postcard as can be got in any hotel. I would have no hesitation in using it again if I returned to Kandersteg.

We stayed here for four nights towards the end of June and would not hesitate to highly recommend it.The owners go out of their way to ensure that their hotel is quite special.The food is particularly good, plentiful and well presented .Even your table decoration changes each day! ..those little extra touches never failed to delight us. Our room was clean,spacious and very comfortable.There were pleasant public areas to sit in too.
The hard working owners are welcoming and helpful.
Kandersteg is a good centre for walking ,but also,by using the train through the Lotschberg tunnel, you can easily access many other places of interest,not only for walking,but also for sightseeing.The Rhone Valley is accessible by train - we enjoyed a lovely train journey and a visit to Martigny and its excellent museum.The Jungfrau area is not far in the other direction ofcourse.

Room Tip: By using the "short cut " path to the station,you can be there in a few minutes.The path i...

Hotel management is excellent Claudia and Gerhard doing a great job running things.Rooms are clean and modern and bathrooms perfect Standard rooms are however very small,so we upgraded to a superior room which was much bigger, had a balcony and a small kitchenette with a table and chairs Other room drawbacks, no coffee making facilities(afternoon .tea and cake are served downstairs), and the t v cant be watched from the bed,only from the sofa.The food and service in the restuarant are very good Kandersteg is a small village excellently situated for hiking in the summer as it has 3 different cablecars which can take you higher up into the alps We found the people in town very friendly, and there is a good tourist info office just accross the road from the hotel.The Bernerhof has a perfect location,on the main street, just a 4 minute walk from the train station and with a lovely view of a meadow and snowcapped mountains from your balcony.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel and were impressed by the excellent customer service given by Claudia and Gerhard Lehmann, the owner-managers. Gerhard gave us a warm welcome as we checked in and graciously allowed us to change rooms to one that had a combination bath tub/shower instead of a room with just a shower. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was spacious for a standard room with a little sitting area in addition to a small desk and a balcony with a table and 2 chairs. The bed was very comfortable. Although I'm not sure it's always free, we had a reservation which included free wifi. The only downside was that we needed a separate password for each device and we had to reenter these every time we used a device which was a bit annoying. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and it was very good. Our prepaid reservation was for 3 nights, but we had to leave early and catch flights back to the US because of a family medical emergency. The owners were very gracious and accommodating regarding our early departure and we thank them for that.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. Owners were very welcoming hosts. Hotel has perfect location and spectacular views. Meals were delicious! We enjoyed hiking in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Our room was rather small and our shower was even smaller! We traveled with a group and other rooms were more spacious...not sure why ours was so much smaller. Great trip and would certainly return to this charming hotel!
