I stayed at The Cambrian for one night in September 2016 - overall a very good experience. The interior design of the Hotel is fabulous, a lot of natural and warm materials like wood, stone, leather, and nice fabric. This is a place where you feel comfortable at once. Beautiful view of the mountains from the rooms and the terrace,... More

Wow. This is a nice part of the world. And a nice place to stay. Lunch in the bar/lounge is casual with fabulous views and friendly service (the toast and dips are great). Dinner menu is ok but better than anything else in town. Staff - competent, smartly presented, happy, helpful and polite. A pleasure to deal with. Location -... More

Beautiful setting, beautiful hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean, absolutely get a room with mountain view (can't understand those that are ok with bus station view?) most staff are helpful and kind, some are formal and dutiful in a Swiss/ German way that lacks warmth so could be improved. Pool outside area is as beautiful as photos depict, we had... More

We visited The Cambrian on a strange weekend where it was quite cool, but not cold, but the weather was very cloudy and damp. We were able to get out and about, but at the same time spend some time inside the hotel around the open fire in the lounge area. The hotel itself is as you'd expect, on balance.... More

This wonderfully positioned hotel was difficult to fault. The service was relaxed and unstuffy, the environment chilled and understated. As an architect who designs contemporary homes I am difficult to please on design but this hotel met all my expectations. The interior design is contemporary and tasteful - it won't easily date - and it suits the typically Swiss, characterful... More

An amazing experience from start to finish, when checking in we were greeted with a friendly smile and a very helpful person. She helped make our stay and explained everything to use and we never felt like we were asking her to much. Although later in the trip we didn't see her. The hotel itself was great as we didn't...

It didn't start off exactly well as the weekend was busy and hotel was fully booked. They informed me there's some issue with the guest bathroom and they have to transfer me to another hotel for the night. But they promised to upgrade my room to a nicer room the following evening. The staff are very friendly and helpful and... More
