I absolutely love Hotel Castle. I have been 3 times to visit nearby family but enjoy coming back every chance I get. In a small Swiss Village but that is what I love about it. The food is incredible and Peter and his wife are absolutely lovely. Nearby hiking and mountain passes are exceptional. Highly recommend.

We spent 2 nights at Hotel Castle in July. Great boutique hotel, perfect location for deep relaxation and excursion to the nearby Aletsch Arena. Rooms with balcony have nice views over the mountain or forest and are quite spacious and comfortable. Our room had a kitchenette with utensils which was nice. Dinner was excellent, breakfast spread adequate. Service very good... More

Hotel Castle was a perfect location for a relaxing and picturesque Christmas vacation that left us feeling very lucky. Although it took some time to travel to the small village of Blitzingen it was worth the effort when our host Peter collected us from the tiny mountain rail station. The views through the Goms valley were amazing and the hotel... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Caste for 6 nights in February as part of a cross country ski vacation in Europe.

As our first winter holiday we wanted somewhere that skiing wasn't the only activity available. We choose this hotel and area so that it would allow us to walk on prepared areas, travel the valley on the railway and be able to access higher peaks via cable car. The area has a good reliable snow covering and stunning scenery. The... More

We were through hiking, which meant we walked up (after a long day of hiking it seemed a significant amount of up) to the hotel. I had some low expectations going in. However, this is truly a hidden gem. The views and the pool were fantastic. The dinner was super tasty. The owner, Peter, is also the chef. In addition,... More
