The hotel staff and owner are nice people. The restaurant is "OKAY". I cant believe it has the Michelin guide restaurant plate in the front door. Im Thai and the Thai food there is not good. The price is very unreasonable. The worst thing that twisted all my plan of visiting Frutigen was the room was very awful. It was...

Indeed it's a nightmare, it's a nightmare to have comments like this from guests like you... You have booked a room for 3 weeks and you were leaving after 2 night's. You told me because you had problems with your skydiving course, obviously this wasn't the reason. I'm really disapointed you didn't told the truth to us "nice people". I...

Overall, I'd definitely recommend the National. It is a small, family-owned and run hotel in the center of Frutigen. The location is central in the small town and a short walk from the train station. There is a little cafe/bakery/chocolate shop attached the hotel which was nice as well. The common areas are nice and the included breakfast was good....

Away from the crowds but easily reached by public transport if touring by Rail.At least hourly train services and buses serve the area and just a 5 mins walk from the station so no problems here. Trains and buses serve the Lines to Brig,spiez,Bern,Adelboden and operate all...

We spent three nights at this lovely, family run hotel in a room with a balcony which provides a marvellous view of the alps. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean, bed comfortable, amazing shower and the staff are lovely. We had one dinner in the restaurant, which is expensive but give ten out of ten for the food and service....

In Switzerland with a group - everyone choose to stay in nearby towns even thought the event was in Frutigen. I chosen The National and had a great stay. It's a lovely looking building, with lovely rooms - nicely furnished (a little better lighting would be good if I were picky). Breakfast was good, and the seperate bakery/cafe they run...

The hotel was in a great location with spectacular views. We had a balcony which was it's saving grace as the rooms were quite small with not a lot of room to walk around the beds. The breakfasts were very good with a great choice of fresh ingredients. The hotel also had a pattisserie attached which was a nice addition....

Very nice welcome and cordial staff in this hotel with attached tea shop and chocolatier. Room and bathroom were both large with excellent views across to the mountains. Room decor was a little dated but clean and comfortable. We stayed at this hotel whilst skiing at Adelboden as we were unable to find anywhere closer as we booked last minute....

I was impressed by the staff kindness at arrival and at breakfast also. I had a single room, it was clean and quite roomy. The hotel also had free Wi-fi. I absolutely loved the restaurant where they served the breakfast, it had the most amazing view. The kitchen staff was very accommodating and the food was tasty. I simply have...
