We stayed at The Spannort for 4 nights, over my husband's birthday. We were absolutely delighted with the hotel - we had a lovely room (one of the Spannort Suites), very comfortable, large bed with a seating area and flat screen TV. The bathroom was new and spotlessly clean - with plenty of hot water (essential after a day's skiing!). The staff were so friendly and helpful (Cecilia and Anette). Breakfast buffet was really good - limited hot food but the breads/cheese and cereals and fruit were top quality. We ate in the restaurant (a la carte) and it was the best meal we had in Engelberg. The lounge area is delightful - decorated tastefully in greys/browns with textured blankets and rugs. Overall, one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in .... highly recommended

Having arrived in Engelberg with no accommodation on 31st December we'd already left ourselves a challenge. The first night we stayed in the Chuchchchch (something like that! Ha ha!) it was right next to the Titlis Ski Shop and had a restaurant downstairs. The rooms were awful, with light fittings hanging off, almost bad hostel like arrangement, and it cost us 150 CHF for that night.... Gutted! It was the only place that had any availability that was not over 250CHF per night for NY's Eve.
We discovered the Spannort after booking this hovel, and the receptionist was wonderfully helpful allowing us to take the single room they had left for the next 3 nights. This room was pleny big enough for the two of us, and had a double bed, table and chairs, and little balcony out over the main pedestrianised street. It was a beautiful room, with very a very clean bathroom. The wood cladding in each room really gave the swiss chalet feel. There was a drying room for our gear and wonderful sauna for the end of a days hard snowboarding too.
The breakfast buffet in morning was superb, hot and cold offerings, with plenty of choice.
The afternoon biscuits and coffee or tea was always sitting there waiting as you came off the slopes, and the staff always had time for a smile and a chat to enquire about your day. The staff really were superb.
For me, this was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had, mainly down to the staff and the wonderful chique chalet decor of The Spannort.
I'd book there again in a flash.

Spannort is by far the best hotel I have ever been to, the staff is very kind and helps you out with everything.
The hotel is close to everything, the slops, stores, resturants and nightclubs.
The breakfast is very good and diverse, they got something for everyone.
If you ever go to Engelberg, this is the place to be.

I had a minor car accident on the way to the hotel. The staff were fantastic in talking to the hire company and police since I spoke no German. They were very kind. The rooms and food were well above average and the location was very central. Absolutely recommend.

We stayed for two nights in a junior suite that was excellent value with a large seating area. The booking,com web photo of the junior suite lacks a view of the seating area that is really comfortable. One of the bedding shots should be replaced by the window angle seats around a smart table. The hotel and restaurant are finished with very fine carved panels of traditional design - a really astonishing quality decoration. The bedside lights were a little weak for reading but the shades swivel (perhaps unintentionally) and this improved the illumination enough for us to read our e-books that are not backlit.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your review and for all the good ideas. We are working on new pictures from the rooms and will try to update them as soon as possible. The lightning is also something that we are working hard on... but want something in the right style, but I think we are almost there and hope to be able to install new lamps in a very soon future :)

Once again, thank you very much for chosing to stay at the Spannort in Engelberg and we hope to be able to welcome you back sometime soon again! And I hope that we have had time to improve the lightning until then!

Best Regards from a Snowy Engelberg

The warm hospitality and friendliness of all their staff is unbeatable (our heartfelt thanks to Stephen and Cecilia for telling us some of the best kept secrets of Engelberg). Spacious and well-equipped room as well as the cozy and beautiful decor lounge area made us feel so at home. Spannort has one of the loveliest restaurants in Engelberg, which serves great quality food with wonderful ambience. Definitely a must-try for honeymooners.
