We were a couple in our 50's with a couple of big suitcases travelling through Switzerland for 8-9 days using the train - good access to the train station was a key requirement in choosing a suitable place to stop for the night. This hotel fitted the bill albeit still about a 5-6 minute flat walk from the station -...

Conveniently located to the Brig train station. For the quality and price point, The Ambassador Hotel is a wonderful alternative to staying in Zermatt. The restaurant in the hotel was typical Swiss cuisine. Our double deluxe room was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the lovely views. Free outdoor parking!

The staff are really helpful and the food is super. The location is great for the train station and access to the town. However, the standard rooms are really quite basic with a small bathroom that is only the width of a shower cubicle. I had not expected this for a 4 star. The view from the room is beautiful,...

Very comfortable hotel within a few minutes walk of the railway station and the old town. Convenient for visiting other places in the area particularly Zermatt. We stayed for three nights. Good food at the restaurant with pleasant and helpful staff.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as we used Brig as our base for visiting other places nearby (Bettermeralp, Bettmerhorn, Zermatt, Gornergrat, Chamonix and Mont Blanc), and for getting on the Bernina Express, so it definitely helped that the Hotel Ambassador is an easy walk from the train station. We booked a Junior Suite (Room 43 from...

We stayed for one night here when we were about to move. It is a classical hotel with very friendly staff - the room was ideal for one night, especially with a small child. What tops everything is however is the restaurant which I will comment separately.

The Ambassador hotel is a great place to stay in the small community of Brig. It is an 8-minute train ride from Visp, so a good alternative if that is your destination. The hotel is about 200 yards from the train station, an easy walk for anyone who is able-bodied. The hotel is on a very quiet street -- even...

I have tried a few hotels in Brig, but the Ambassador has been the best by a long way. The owners and staff are friendly and ready to help, and the rooms are of a high quality. The Le Cheminots restaurant has excellent food, and can prepare menu style meals for small groups. Breakfast is included, and has a range...

We chose this as being close to the centre but in a quieter street - which, sadly, turned out to have roadworks going on at the time. Friendly and multi-lingual staff, a pleasant room - although ours only had a rather cramped ensuite with shower and no bath. Even in September our room was too hot with the windows shut...
