Why we love it...

Unspoiled location

The Place

At the top end of the Lötschental where the road ends at around 1780 m is this pine-clad traditional mountain lodge in a priceless location. In winter it’s cut off and guests must prepare for a 1 hour walk to reach this winter wonderland.

Close to the hotel a glacier melts into a rushing river and impressive peaks rise to 2785 metres and more. If you want proper value, book in here for at least three nights – a shorter stay makes no sense.

The energetic will want to do the five-hour climb from the hotel to the Anenhutte, a genuine mountain hut serving food at 2358m. Or there’s a great choice of gentler hikes, again from the hotel, traversing the valley sides or floor with little climbing; or you can take the bus down to the valley’s most picturesque village, Blatten, walking from there; or to the next village, Wiler where the only cable car in the valley takes you to Lauchernalp, 1968 m, where yet more stunning walks fan out.

Inside, the hotel is unpretentious, comfortable and in its skin. Downstairs are a small reading room, two dining rooms, a play room and outdoor terrace. The set menu is almost always very good (local ingredients) and the wines well chosen. The atmosphere is relaxed, home from home, the other guests are genuine types – typically lovers of the mountains and outdoors.

Bedrooms are a fair size, harmonious with wall-to-wall pine panelling. A typical mid-range double room was around 200 Swiss francs in 2024, half board. The prices are fair, given the location and the strength of the Swiss franc.

The Lötschental can honestly claim to be one of Switzerland’s most remote and unspoiled valleys because for cars there’s only one way in and out – and because winter sports development has been minimal.
