I've just returned with the family from the Cambrian Adelboden. The hotel is stylish but unpretentious with one of the best views from a pool I've ever seen. Staff are friendly , decor really great and food lovely in the restaurant . Great activities offered and free use of mountain bikes to explore the great alpine countryside Will definitely return...

We stayed here in August 2012 with two children for a few nights. It really is a wonderful setting with spectacular views and easy access to the mountains. The hotel is a very high standard and the staff are friendly and helpful. We can highly recommend using the trottie bikes...great fun! My only criticism, and it is a small one,...

Stayed at this place several times before and had excellent experience, but have to say service and quality have significantly decreased in 2012. It seems this establishment has financial issues. Clearly under-staffed by people who are not having a good time on the job. It's basically become a self-service operation. It's virtually impossible to get the time of day from...

We stayed at the Cambrian for four nights and really liked it - the mountain views from our room and sun deck/pool were fabulous, the hotel is well designed giving it a nice look and feel. Beds are comfortable, and the rooms well equipped. After four nights we felt rested and relaxed. The choice and range of the buffet was...

We have been living in Switzerland for several years and visited The Cambrian on many occasions since 2007. And it is far from the same hotel it used to be. Something has gone very wrong here. There are clearly management issues to deal with here. Pros: * The SPA is still nice. Dressing room is very nice. * Rooms are...

What more can I say? This is a great place to stay. Very stylish, very clean, incredible views across mountains and waterfalls, the bed is huge and supremely comfortable, breakfast is extensive and fantastic (and goes till 12 on Sundays, a very considerate move on their part). Oh, and room service is fast and very, very good, and after spending...

SUMMARY There during the off-season (non ski season). The room was gorgeous with a beautiful view and the breakfast buffet was amazing. Room was clean and the design and the style of the whole property was amazing. That said, service in the bar was borderline awful and the prices, while on par with Adelboden as a whole (expensive), were totally...

The Cambrian is giving value for money! Of course, the Swiss franc makes it not the "cheapest deal" but nevertheless we felt like getting good value for money. The rooms: Modern alp style, lot of wood, straight lines, good space, nice bathroom. All pretty new and with good quality of equipments and fittings. We had a stunning view on the...

We booked a suite here which was very nice and had a fab view but unfortunatley the hotel did not advise us until we arrived that they had a wedding the same weekend as our stay and that the restaurant would be closed and no room service available either.

Great hotel, lovely interior, even the "cheapest" room was very spacious. Bed too soft for our liking. Bar was nice, if pricey. Restaurant served very nice food, but it was VERY expensive, yes it is Switzerland but £150 for 3 courses and a bottle of Cotes du Rhone for two people is pushing it a little.
