I discovered this hotel during a teambuilding at beginning of September. At that time, I enjoyed the decorum made of modern art and design, the view on the mountains and the breakfast offering lots of choice with salty and sweety meals. For this second stay, with my girlfriend, I wanted to test the restaurant. I booked a junior suite giving... More

I have never written a review on a hotel before, but felt compelled to do so relative to The Cambrian as I had such a bad experience. The advertising for this hotel is very deceptive. The photos on their website are taken from angles, and in locations which intentionally exclude the immediately surrounding buildings, to make you think you will... More

This is a thoroughly rave review. No constructive criticism here. Pros/Cons: Pros starting with the lobby: spacious yet oozing-with-coziness with many well-designed seating pockets - whether around an amazing smelling fire or out near the deck with killer views. There's a cool yet pointless bar off the lobby (pointless because there's no view). Instead I'd recommend ordering your drink from... More

Born in Switzerland, having quite a good overview of hotel management, I was a bit disappointed by the hotel. Yes, the design is perfect, the location is amazing, but it's not worth the price. Rooms are not totally sound insulated, the spa is quite small and the outside pool cannot welcome more than a few couples. You definitely have to... More

Beautifully decorated hotel-friendly staff. Public areas clean and tidy. Rooms very clean and tidy. Food is excellent-just wish there was tea/coffee facilities in room... Need tea in the morning before I face the world! Spa was great but fully booked for treatments-would be useful to be advised to book in advance of arrival. Town is lovely.

We've stayed at the Cambrian for the second time and were not disappointed. We love the friendly staff, great location of the hotel, amazing alpine view, generous breakfast and wonderful spa. This is a small, personal hotel where you instantly feel at home, ready to kick off your shoes and just relax. If you love personal service with a local,... More

Out room was lovely, I really liked the decoration and the hotel is in the perfect spot in the middle of town. The spa is lovely, sauna, steam room and of course the outside pool which is beautiful. You can sit there and enjoy the gorgeous views over the mountains. Great service, would reccommend
