So we were travelling from Zermatt to Flims on a ski tour and the satnav ran us into a wall of ice on the oberalp pass. With nowhere to go at about 10pm I staggered into the beautiful bar and asked "Is that hotel attached to this bar?" It was, and the staff did everything they could to accommodate us. Great rooms, such a welcome relief. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, I loved it. Also Andermatt is an absolute gem of a ski resort, we were not planning to ski there, but a happy accident forced us into it and we loved every minute.
Small, restored building in the old town on the river. Standard rooms are on the smaller size, but comfortable with modern bathrooms. Excellent staff. Nice small bar and restaurant on site. Near restaurants in old town and convenient to free bus transportation to ski lifts.
Cozy, lovely and charming hotel. We have already booked to come back. Very well run and efficient and even with 3 kids we felt very comfortable. The location is also brilliant. We will always stay here when we come back to Andermatt. They helped us with restaurant recommendations and the ski academy for our kids. The breakfast in the morning is also lovely.
If you’re looking for a hotel with good ambience, The River House is it. There are other hotels with bigger rooms and fancier gadgets, but having a beer after skiing, delicious dinner, and chatting with Kevin and Sarah, helped us get a feeling for Andermatt
Wonderful stay in this lovingly restored hotel. Comfortable bed, big room all beautifully decorated. Delicious food and very friendly staff and owners. Zen atmosphere all around we slept and ate well.
Ideal location for family celebration. We were 8-adults & 2 children. We enjoyed stylish rooms, friendly efficient service, good bar food & good selection of whiskies. For a little bit extra, why not try a trip down the old Gotthard pass in an antique horse-drawn postal carriage with all the extras...enchantment, a trip back in time, food & drink with excellent company & historical background?
My father and I spent two nights at River house and felt just at home. The building has a lot of charm and the room was the perfect mix of authenticity and modern utilities. I personally enjoyed the fact that there wasn’t a large tv but rather an IPad: much more useful and way less intrusive. The staff are what made the place so welcoming. We got great service at dinner and breakfast. The owners even let us get changed on the premises after our last day of skiing even though we didn’t have a room anymore. I can most definitely recommend this accommodation and hope to have the privilege to come again in the near future !
Spent three nights under COVID rules where Sarah and Kevin were truly star hosts. Nice small hotel, ideally located with attention to detail. With restaurants closed, they cooked us great meals. Would definitely recommend.
Whether exploring Switzerland in the summer or winter, this is one of the most cozy places to be found. My wife and I were very pleased with the accomodation and the staff. Everything in town was a pleasant stroll away.
If you are looking for something unique in a hotel, this is it, not your standard rooms, they are all different since the old building is... If you are a skier/boarder, you'll love it. It has that charm that the big hotels try to achieve but will never get.
