My wife, her parents and our 5 1/2 years old kid came back for the 2nd time to Hotel Mercure Bristol Leukerbad from 05-07th August 2011 (2 nights). We came back for 2 reasons, the view on the mountains and the Hotel own thermal pools. We requested on high floor, 2 Double Rooms Superior South Side with balcony and very important, in the renovated building ! We received Room nbr 312 and 310 for my wife's parents. All was done as per our request.
Clients are mainly coming to this Hotel in order to enjoy the own thermal pools facilities, knowing that the main public "Burgerbad" in Leukerbad is mostly over crowded during week end and during school holidays. Therefore it should be avoided to go there if you don't like the crowd !
During breakfast, don't wait for your coffee, as it is self service and you should pick it up by yourself on noisy coffee machine, which are also not giving the best coffee taste you would expect... Furthermore, avoid to seat close to those coffee machines or the noise they are making each time someone wants to take a coffee or some other drinks is just awful and will soon make you mad...
We were somehow disappointed by the pools which are actually not very clean : we saw insects inside and dirt in the corner. Maintenance should be improved as a few points are not acceptable to us, I will resume it as follows :

POSITIVE POINTS :
---------------------------

1) Check in was fast, efficient and as per our requests.
2) View on the mountains is excellent, take high floor rooms South side !
3) Location of the Hotel is perfect, close to everything by foot.
4) Parking just in front of the Hotel, for CHF. 8.-- per day (limited places !)
5) South side view is the only good choice.

POINTS TO BE IMPROVED :
--------------------------------------

1) Maintenance : 1 shower inside and 1 shower outside the pool area were not working.
2) Maintenance : Wood of the balcony and on the Hotel side should be renovated/treated as looking old and used...
3) Curtains in our room nbr 312 were not clean and should be washed from time to time !
4) Hair dryer of room nbr 312 stopped in the middle of use !
5) Around the pool is looking brown and dirty, specially on the white plastic parts.
6) TV channels are not matching at all the TV list that is provided inside the room !
7) No air conditionning inside the rooms !

Well, that's it. I would recommend this Hotel for a family or couple, who wants to make a short stay in good/average conditions and to enjoy Leukerbad by foot.

Please take a look to the photos I will soon attach and enjoy your stay ;-)

This hotel is located among the mountains in Canton Wallis. Leukerbad is a beatiful place and the view from the room was breathtaking. The hotel is nice and clean so the room was. Wellness area is well equipped. The staff at the reception was really kind, but service in general is not in line with a 4 star hotel. Firstly we booked for a feet massage, but the receptionist misunderstood and book head massage. The day of the massage it turned out that only the person is avaialbe who is doing the head massage. Then they charged us with a completely different treatment which was 35 CHF more...Menu in the restaurant is really poor. For Dinner 3 or 4 courses menu can be selected, among 10 meals in total....Also 4-5 meals are available on the terrace during the day...

We come from Ticino and just loved the hotel, the spacious room, the service, excellent spa facilities, a good breakfast (Fr.25 for 1 person). It's a hotel for families with children or honey moon couples or seniors looking for relax. The most important thing is that it's a wonderful place for the thermal water spa! If the food could be as good as at restaurantcity.ch with live music (NB: more attention to the fish served at the festive dinner 1.08.11 - neither my husband nor I could eat it, and the dinner was definitely overpriced for what it offered - insted of pork they could serve a T-bone steak), the hotel would become the most attractive point of Leukerbad.
P.S. The hotel could advertise more its thermal water source (33 degrees C). The info can be only seen at the entrance of the Thermalbad (where nobody reads it). The recommended time is 3 for 20 minutes max. 1 hour a day. "The thermal water is satutated in the vicinity of the Triassic area gypsym and calcium sulfate. it contains insoluble elements, such as strontium, iron and fluorine. This warm gypsum water allevates rheumatic and neurological conditions."
P.P.S. Yes, the skin gets softer, the people less neurvous :)

The hotel is classed as four-star, mostly due to the really great private thermal source and the new spa, as the rooms are quite basic. But the rooms aren't really important when you will spend most of your time either outdoors hiking or using the spa facilities. The spa is minimalist and just the right size, we went on a high-occupancy weekend and still didn't feel crowded. We ate in the hotel restaurant one evening, the set menu was good quality and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floors facing the mountains rather than the town to get the best views, but me...
