A charming hotel facing the Bernese Alps. A warm welcome, and top-quality services. Welcome to Heinz and Rita Johner's hotel.
“Offering you the very best in services, facilities and activities.”
Heinz has been in the hotel business for over 30 years now. “Everything from A to Z is important” in his profession. This is why he attends to the tiniest details to ensure that Chalet-Hotel Bristol, The Originals Relais is as impressive as the surrounding landscape. With mountains all around, this elegant yet welcoming and comfortable three-star hotel sits high on the hills in the picturesque chalet village of Adeldoben, a little over an hour’s drive from Bern. In both summer and winter, people come here in search of fresh air, peace and escapism in the most relaxing of atmospheres. The 23 rooms are restful cocoons, the restaurant is an invitation to a culinary journey, and the wellness area, a true oasis of relaxation, is the finishing touch to your unforgettable stay in this family holiday resort in the heart of the Bernese Oberland.
Almost all of the 29 rooms (including two suites) at the Chalet-Hotel Bristol, The Originals Relais have a balcony from which the outstanding views can be marvelled at and enjoyed. Their décor is classic and refined. The traditional use of wood bestows a cosy kind of comfort that is enhanced by modern conveniences. They are ideally suited to families.

You can relax during your stay at the Chalet-Hotel Bristol, The Originals Relais with a drink in the bar or beside the fireplace in the elegant entrance hall. Every morning a vast, varied and generous buffet is served in the restaurant, including locally produced jams, cheeses, eggs and fruit. Take your seat again in the pretty dark red chairs at lunch and dinner, to enjoy gourmet cuisine which includes local and international dishes.
The first Swiss holiday destination to receive Alpine Wellness certification, Adelboden is one of the Bernese Oberland’s most eclectic winter and summer holiday destinations.

This includes free access to the barrel-shaped organic sauna in the garden, the traditional Finnish sauna, the steam bath, and a sensations shower. A fee is charged for use of the jacuzzis, solarium, and massage treatments.
THINGS TO DOA hikers’ paradise in the summer, and a winter eldorado for skiers, the village of Adelboden offers a host of activities in all seasons. At the hotel we can offer suggestions for hikes and bike rides, and we loan or rent out cycles. Beyond the hotel, you can learn or play golf, tennis and more, or go fishing. In winter, the hotel also offers ski packages (the ski lifts are close by).
ADELBODEN AND ITS SURROUNDINGS
Adelboden is your starting point for exploring the Choleren gorges with their waterfalls, windmills, and rocks polished by the passing of time. You can take the cable car up to Schwandfeldspitz at 2025 m of altitude to admire the view, or have a go at mountain scootering at Trottiland, the only circuit in the world: here, seven routes in a 45 km network of tracks guarantee dizzying descents to the village. Climb high in Höi-Turm, on a combined forest adventure and rock-climbing circuit on three levels and with 64 stations, or visit the tropical house in Frutigen with its exotic plants and its sturgeon farm for the production of caviar. Close to Spiez and Bern, the Chalet-Hotel Bristol, The Originals Relais is also the ideal base for indulging in more urban tourism, or for visiting such charming sites as Spiez castle and Lake Thun.
