    Good breakfast buffet with a variety of fresh breads and fresh pressbarem orange juice. Excellent restaurant with a star, the meals are fresh and creative prepared. Half-board with an evening 3 - course menu is from my point of view to recommend, it is in each case from two different set meals be selected.

    Location on the outskirts with mountain view. Since kandersteg on the poor is, there is little traffic at the front of the hotel street. Good starting point for hikes, also good access to bus and train. Shopping and restaurants in the town are within walking distance and easy to reach.

Small, well arranged hotel, the with a lot of love of the entire family run. There are 4 floors, beautiful chalet style, with much balconies/terraces. The breakfast room has gotten a bit old, still clean and homey. The breakfast buffet is small but nice, quality counts and not quantity.

    Since we booked only rooms/breakfast have, we could in the evening à la carte food. What we not regret it. The food is simple an absolute hammer, a culinary delight without question. We are experienced visitors and have already many a time in 5 stars hotels in Switzerland stayed in. What this hotel offers, is five stars worthy!

    The hotel is in an optimal location, in ten minutes we were on foot in the village. There are several bakeries, butchers, drugstore and a coop in the village. It also in the immediate vicinity a bus stop. The cable car the oeschinensee is on foot in 10 minutes distance.

    We booked a junior suite. The size of the room was with 26 square meter nice and spacious. A large terrace there was also. We also liked the furnishing, very individually designed in an art-nouveau style. In the room there is a hair dryer, and bathrobes. The rooms were very clean.

    Friendliness is paramount in the hotel. We have on the first night, because of the hard mattress, not sleep well. On the next day we asked for a duvet as mattress, the hosts had a suite without an extra charge with a softer mattress offered. If this is not accomodating is! Justified by the hotelier with: we want to satisfy the guests! :-)

Lovely hotel, we had an economy room and it was spacious, very nicely furnished, large balcony with a good view, really good bathroom, and everything absolutely clean, including the floor. The shower head gave a really nice tropical rain effect, though this was spoiled a bit by it going lukewarm from time to time. Dinner in the restaurant was very nicely presented, imaginative, tasted really good, you might ask for larger portions if you're hungry after a day's hiking. Recommend the mint tea made from herbs gathered in the surroundings. Breakfast was nice. Staff all very friendly, gave us all ... the advice we needed for the local area. We were there only one night, we really enjoyed our stay, and regretted not being able to stay longer. Thoroughly recommended. read hotel review
