We stayed at the hotel on 3rd September booking a family suite for 2 adults and 2 children. Room comprised two separate sleeping areas with a bunk bed in one room and double in the other. The hotel is centrally situated in Kandersteg to walk around the village and not far from the train station and cable car to Oeschinen...

We decided to stay in Kandersteg for a night before taking the car train to Valais. It was drizzling but the town still looked lovely and the views from the bedroom were superb. The rooms are very well appointed with balcony and all conveniences yet the hotel retains its charm from its decades before. There is a restaurant in the...

The appealing character about this hotel is just that, it has a history and character. This is not to say it hasn't moved with the times but there are elements which suggest the management has decided to keep items such as the beautiful chandeliers which dominate the ornate dining room. We had a room with a stunning view of the...

We stayed over the weekend to escape the heat in Basel. We used it as a base to explore, Oeschinsee, as well as relax a little at the hotel. The amenities are good. Breakfast was quite nice, with fresh bread, cheese and croissants. The only missing items would be some more cooked/warm options. The pool was in a warm humid...

This is a large older style Hotel, with a large lounge for guests with bar. The dining room is very elegant with chandeliers. Small old fashioned lift catering for 5 floors. I had a single room which was very spacious with a coffee/tea machine, TV but no other amenities, no safe. Timber floors which could be noisy especially guests above....

Stayed 3 nights as part of a rail holiday. Large and traditional Swiss-style hotel that one could imagine being the height of elegance 40 years ago. Rooms were spacious and bathrooms very roomy albeit over-bath showers were basic and with no mats provided could be dangerous. No aircon or cooling available. The wi-fi meant to be available in room didn't...

Great location with special views, expected given the location. Hotel was old fashioned in the best sense. Proper dining room with formal service, but unfortunately it was being used by a large party. Dinner and breakfast was in the restaurant, cosy and welcoming. Staff were friendly and helpful, brining in iPhone charger to help me with minor technical problems.

I have stayed at the Victoria-Ritter a number of times of the past few years. The hotel has a very loyal following. Not only have we had the pleasure of getting to know the staff over time, but we have gotten to know guests that, like us, come during the same week each year. The common lobby and dining room...

We stayed here as part of a Great Rail Journey holiday. First impressions were very good and meal on first evening was quite special. Unfortunately, meals on second and third evening were less fancy. Nothing bad, just not anything special. Breakfast is relatively simple continental. We had a huge room, with sitting room. Room was chilly and I spoke to...
