Having lived in Switzerland for almost 25 years now, I am used to people being rather superficial and friendly but standoffish. Knowing that, we were even more amazed as to how friendly and forthcoming the owners are. Not a phony friendliness, but a true from the heart caring and warmth. To be honest, we found this everywhere in the Wallis,...

We had lunch at the restaurant, the food was local, tasty and very well presented, the service is very friendly and fast. Overall very nice place for lunch or dinner. They have a decent wine card and the wines are fairly priced. Excellent value for money.

Great hotel. Nice spacious rooms and very close to ski lift. Very quiet, so you can leave a window open and enjoy the fresh alpine air. Hotel owner himself takes care of check-in. Very helpful and friendly. Definitely will visit again! :)

This modern family run hotel is located in the heart of town. The large picture window in our room had a great view overlooking the charming old town section with traditional Swiss cabins, framed by the Alps rising across the valley. We had a separate sitting room with a couch by the window so we could savor the view. The...

Spent a night in this hotel and impressed by the room with big window and sizeable sitting area. Staff are very friendly and helpful. No chance to try their restaurant for dinner but breakfast is pretty good. Shower area is a bit small but not a major problem.

After our complaint we had to wait a while for a new risotto, again with much too much salt. The waitresses didn't apology in any form and we had to pay...

Absolutely recommendable. We spend 4 nights here in July 2014. Friendly staff, nice rooms and good restaurant. The view from the rooms was faboulous! We arrived late evening when it was dark and cloudy and were surprised by the scenery in the morning. The hotel was a good base for hikes, both easy and hard ones. It is quite easy...

We only spent a night here but would've been happy to stay longer. The owner was super friendly and helpful. Our room was big and looked newly redone. Our view was incredible!!! Everything was great and breakfast the next morning was delicious in the restaurant..a bonus that it was free with our room. Highly recommend to anyone visiting! Somewhat harder...

We stayed at the Desiree after doing half of the Europaweg (starting in Randa). Since we had hiked for more than 8 hours almost anything would have been fine but the hotel far exceeded our expectations. The owner was very polite and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Although we were a little late, they opened the sauna for...

The rooms are spacious and for many with a beautiful view thanks to large windows from floor to ceiling. The bedding was too soft and below average for this category of hotels. Friendly hosts, although level of english relatively low. the cable car is only a few meters away. One thing that disturbed us was the cheese fondue smell coming...
