We stayed here in early March for the tail end of the ski season and had an enjoyable time.
The rooms, while small, were comfortable and cozy. The website describes the bathrooms as partially open, which in our room meant that the toilet and a sink were in a separate room, while the shower opened directly off the bedroom with a sink beside it. This is fine for a romantic getaway (as ours was) but something you may want to consider if you're planning to share a room with someone who is not your significant other.
Our rate included breakfast, which was ample and tasty. We had supper in the hotel restaurant once, which was good, though there are so many restaurant options in Saas Fee I'd recommend getting out into the village and trying a few of them, rather than eating at the hotel repeatedly.
The staff were generally helpful whenever we had a question or request.
A few things to note for your stay, if you're here to ski:
- the hotel wasn't able to assist with pre-purchasing lift tickets, so we had to go to one of the ticket windows in the village and wait in line for about an hour to get our passes.
-the transfer to the hotel took us quite a while. From Geneva, it took us a little over 3 hours to get there.
-you can rent skis / boots at Cesar Sport. There are at least 3 in the village, so go to the one right beside the Alpin Express lift (hotel staff can show you on the map) and ask them to store your skis / boots there.
The Hotel is very centrally located next to the village square. The best thing about the hotels is the "ice breaker crew", the name with which the hotel staff is known as. I was the first guest for this year summer season, my first visit to Saas Fee.
Daniel, the 'dude' was very courteous in explaining to me the various excursions I could do.
My only suggestion (maybe its mistimed) is to have a wider menu on the room service.
Will be back in jan 2013...

Despite my appearing as a mad (and elderly) Englishman wanting to ski out of season, the staff were extremely helpful in enabling me to find out when the slopes were open, taxiing me down to cable car base, and arranging to store my equipment using the facilities of another hotel - really friendly and helpful. When the slopes were closed, they indicated where would be good to walk. Lovely hotel in a beautiful location, and a delightful buffet breakfast. My room was upsized from what I had booked as there were few guests, and was impeccably maintained. A very special experience, and considering Switzerland is not a cheap destination, very reasonably priced. I hope I can return.
Very clean B&B, in a great small town. Lots of things to see and do, go up the gondola, plenty of hiking, via ferretas. Easy access to towns beside by bus. The lady that runs the B&B is amazing!!! She's so nice, and friendly. She is the one to ask about what to do, and best ways to do it. We will be going back in the future!

"Well situated hotel close to the main cable cars."
We stayed at this hotel for one week commencing Sat 5th September 2015 as we had often said that we would like to stay at Hotel Bristol.Our arrival was disappointing to say the least as we were only offered a glass of water on arrival,after a long day,having been up early at 2-45 am and arriving at the hotel in mid afternoon.Our room was much smaller than what we are used to in other hotels in Saas Fee,but it was spotlessly clean with a balcony with excellent views.We had only booked bed and breakfast and the buffet breakfast was very good,with plenty of choice,but only continental breakfast.The waitress was very good indeed and attended to our every need every morning,Our room was comfortable but the beds could have been a little softer,they tended to be a bit on the solid side.The disappointment was that we never saw the bar open at all in the evenings,but this was not too much of a problem,as we know the village well and have our evening drinks at several different locations.We were disappointed that the owners never came to us to introduce themselves at any time during our stay,as we have always been used to the practice of owners doing so wherever we have stayed previously.However our overall opinion was that it was a pretty good holiday hotel and I am sure we would visit again if the occasion arose,and the price was right.

Absolutely fantastic hosts; could not do enough for us. The rooms were perfectly comfortable and Martin & Annette provide an excellent breakfast in the morning. They were also very helpful with resort information and giving us travel information to get us home. They spoke very good English.
