We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the hotel in the winter. Kandesteg in winter was like stepping into a Christmas picture postcard: quite magic. The junior suite room was lovely and spacious. The staff were helpful and the hotel puts on late afternoon tea and cakes for guests each day with a warm fireplace to sit by as...

The hotel setting is great, just outside the village of Kandersteg and on the Langlaufloipe. The room was lovely - all light wood, excellent bed, nice bathroom. The spa had everything - sauna steam pool jacuzzi. Breakfast first class and the menu evening meal was superb. All in all great - will definitely return - this nearly got 5 stars...

We stayed eight nights including Christmas Eve and Christmas day. We and our luggage were whisked away by the hotel's minibus almost immediately on arrival at Kandersteg railway station (from Geneva airport in just over three hours). After a short drive to the hotel (1.5km) we were warmly greeted (everybody appears to be multi-lingual) and given a tour of the...

Deep fried spring roll with glass noodles is an unimpressive attempt at fusion. Might be better to stick with fondue and raclette. Breakfast however was a treat. Magical omelette . Lets see if there are any nice surprises this week. One really needs a car at this hotel if with a family, the bus runs only hourly and it is...

I'm actually still staying in the hotel. When I look outside of the window now, it's snowy very piecefully... we stay here with this feeling.. like time is somehow stopped, it is still and calm. Unfortunately I'm not good at skiing.. but I see some people, which enjoy cross-country. This hotel has pretty good wellness, furthermore it has easy access...

Its a very beautiful hotel with a very beautiful garden, tasty food and something very important - dog friendly. The spa is great. Another one in the same chain is Rhuedihus which is an amazing and well preserved old time swiss in.

We stayed here two nights with few complaints. The room was huge and well furnished. Good internet connection and very easy to access. Balconies all around and magnificent views. This is a scenic location. I thought the meals were average and overpriced. Also service as we departed was non existent. We had an 8am departure and no one could be...

Spent 8 nights here in August 2015. Absolutely superb. Food, spa, room, staff faultless. Perfect hotel if you love walking, eating, relaxing and don't want lively late nights (which don't happen in Kandersteg as everyone is knackered from walking all day anyway). The restaurant staff are lovely - helpful but informal and not snobby - and the reception staff cannot...
