The Hotel Bristol is a perfect place to stay in the village of Adelboden. Stayed here for a week with Crystal Ski and we were the only British couple there - the welcome from the staff couldn't have been warmer. They were all at the very least polite and most were very friendly and helpful - particularly Anke who worked on reception. We had the Papillon room which was bizarrely attached to the dining room but we had our own separate entrance if we wanted to go in and out that way. The room was large bright and airy and for a ski holiday was great - lots of hooks on doors for jackets etc., and plenty of hangers in the wardrobe. The food was of a generally good standard, and the waiting staff were also lovely and friendly. They conversed equally with the German speaking guests, spoke French to French and Belgian guests, and spoke perfect English to us. Locally the Hotel is classed as a 3 star, but I have never stayed in a 3 star as nice as this. The whole village is geared towards health, relaxation and spa experiences. The Hotel has a 'Wellness Centre' (outside just across from our room) which was free to use for guests with a Hammam, Swedish sauna and individual jacuzzi baths. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone, we had a lovely stay which made up for the lack of good snow!
There is a new sports centre in Adelboden where you can go bowling until 12.30 am, and there's a Curling Rink which offers taster sessions - if you phone beforehand you can book a session (providing there are sufficient others to make up a group), which is great fun.
For a nice drink visit the Hotel Beau Site at the top end of the village - it has a lovely basement wood-panelled 'Gaststube' serving very reasonably priced cocktails - and again, the barmaid who served us here was very attentive and friendly. It must be something in the Adelboden water - everyone is so friendly!
