Unterbach Accommodation

Accommodations at Unterbäch are best in either of two main hotels. The Hotel Alpenhof is superbly situated in the main village between the top station of the cable car from Raron, and the ski lifts. Alternatively. in the lower end of the village, 10 minutes walk to the ski lifts, the convivial Hotel Walliserhof is where we stayed due to last minute availability. A lovely room, fantastic hospitality, wonderful food (the breakfasts in particular are excellent) and friendly hosts made the stay truly enjoyable. A rowdy night in the hotel bar with some Swedes didn't hurt either!
