We had a very disappointing experience. We went to this hotel as guest for the restaurant, Le Chalet. My wife ordered risotto with mushrooms.The diss was far too salty.

Absolutely recommendable. We spend 4 nights here in July 2014. Friendly staff, nice rooms and good restaurant. The view from the rooms was faboulous!

Friendly hosts, although level of english relatively low. the cable car is only a few meters away. One thing that disturbed us was the cheese fondue smell coming... More
