We stayed here as part of a Great Rail tour and were very happy with our stay. Great location in a quiet area just 5 minutes' walk from the rail station. Warm and welcoming staff who were gracious and helpful in every regard. Small but comfy room with a very nice bed, nice linens and duvets. Large flatscreen with good...

We stayed at this hotel for one night only but would definitely go back. Clean quiet and comfortable at a reasonable price etc. The cherry on the cake being that we forgot a handbag while checking out and only realised when we got to Geneva. The staff were kind enough to put the bag aside and then sent it on...

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.
