“Fex for all seasons”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

In January, my husband, daughter and I spent four wonderful days in the Hotel Fex. We are keen cross-country skiers and the Fex Valley had been recommended to us. We found the local trails were as good as any we have experienced, particularly the one from the hotel to the head of the valley. After a day in the snow, returning to such a cosy, friendly hotel was a real treat, and the idea of the delicious dinner to come increased one's general feeling of well-being. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent, as were the local wines. We understand the flowers are exceptional at the end of June. On all counts, we will be returning.

Room Tip: From the back, you get a good view not only of the mountains, but of yaks, alpacas and Aberdeen Angu...

We stayed there from October 03 until October 06, 2013.

We chose the Valley of Fex for the baptism of our daughter and the hotel Fex at almost the very end of this valley has proven to be the perfect place for our families, godmothers and godfather.

It is such a remote place, accessible only by horse-drawn carriage, hiking or by the hotel shuttle from Sils.

The whole staff of the Hotel Fex was so warm, helpful, professional and friendly when we checked out this location in August 2013 in order to plan the baptism for our daughter.
We have booked several rooms for our families, godmothers and godfather.

The Hotel Fex staff gave such a personal touch, like being at home during our stay.
Everyone of our group felt very comfortable and the food, plus wines were just fantastic. The atmosphere was so cozy, that you could really forget what in the rest of the world was happening.
Surrounded by sheeps, lamas, cows, a little river and the mountains, this place feels magical.

The home-made Hotel Fex tea, plus the Torta da Nusch à la Hotel Fex (nut tart, an engadine speciality) we provided as a give-away gift to our people were delicious.

If you want to shut out the world, then go to Hotel Fex...

After a short stay this summer, while hiking in the region, we decided to come back for a stay in winter. The hotel is as good in every season. Beautiful setting at teh end of the valley. Nice clean rooms, good restaurant, bar and (summer) terrace. Fine food and very friendly and helpfull staff. Definitely worth the travel, despite (or thanks to) the limited access. We come back this summer!

Room Tip: Go for the renovated rooms with balcony on the southside

Totally remote, miles away from any car. Beautiful, old school Swiss hotel managed by caring and lovely young couple. Worth a trip to experience the beauty of a unique hotel. Lamas in the neighbourhood, rivers, variety of flowers and mountains make this a very special place.

In July we doubled the wonderful holiday of last year in these idillic hotel deep in the mountains. If you want to relax and forget the rest of the world for some days this is the place for you.
This rather big house at the top end of the Fex Valley has a very appealing "old days" cIt simple's simple but still not basic, giving a beautiful compromise between mountains feeling and comfort (I love the long corridor with the mountain shoes near the doors of the rooms and the old fashioned dinig room with a stunning view of the Fex Glacier).
The hotel ist runned by friendly personal which contribute to the familiar - cosy feeling, the new Hotel master is maybe somehow rude despite not being unfriendly and being definitive helpful.
All in all a place we love and that we want to try also in winter.

I spent an 'away' weekend here on the recommendation of friends. The accommodation was very comfortable in the Swiss style. The service was excellent and the food and wine delicious. I particularly liked the very Swiss 'Stuva' downstairs. The atmosphere was cheerful and relaxed. I spent hours in the sunshine on the terrace gazing at the magnificent mountain scenery, and in walks up the valley.
All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

This is actually a restaurant review as we didn't actually stay in the hotel but there isn't a restaurant section for Fextal.
First I should say that we have eaten many times on the terrace at the Fex hotel. The hotel changed hands I think a couple of years ago and I have to say that the quality and service have gone down considerably. Yesterday we had lunch and ate the famous Bratwurst with Rosti. It was probably the worst I have ever eaten in Switzerland, the Bratwurst was Ok (You only have to grill it) but the rösti was bright yellow and burnt, we reckon it was bought frozen stuff because we've never seen rösti like it, and the onion sauce was all clogged up. Service is usually slow on sunny days because there's such a lot of people waiting for a table but yesterday there wasn't really that many people there and still we had to fetch the menu ourselves and had to ask numerous times if we could order, it was the same when we wanted to pay.
On our next trip to Fex we will try the Sonne hotel for lunch.
