Driving from Lake Maggiore to Interlaken, this was the perfect stopover in the most beautiful part of the mountains. It's not far from the road but you wouldn't know it, and the views from our room were picture perfect incredible. Everyone there is super friendly, our upgrade from a family room to a top floor 2 bed apartment was so... More

We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights on the way to Nufenenpass. A beautiful area, close to hiking locations, 1km away from a large children playground and while remote still easy to get to. The property is well maintained and it has a nice outside and inside place in the restaurant. The restaurant has partly "standard" kitchen, partly vegan.... More

Everything was very good, the romantic package is great. Motivated and dynamic staff, just a little more of attention to the details, especially in the restaurant/service and it would rate excellent:).

A small family hotel very well placed off the main road, but with a stop of the postal bus right in front. The interior has been arranged with a lot of taste. Even for a group a 13 in hiking gear and staying for only 1 night, the reception was friendly. Cosy dining room to enjoy a supper with local... More

The Chalet Stella Alpina is very well situated. The landscape is amazing and you can start a lot of different hikes nearby, the lago ritom for example. At the chalet you can enjoy a spa after a long hike, which is just very relaxing. The staff is really nice and the food excellent (you have to try the risotto). We... More

We spend an unforgettable stay in Ronco for Valentine's. The area is breathtaking and it's a great spot to disconnect. However I have to say that they gave us (to my fiancé and I) a kids room, connected to a junior suite, so we didn't have our own bathroom. We had to use the one in the aisle. We would've... More

Hello, thanks for your good reviews. As for your last dinner, I'm not convinced that you have understood what she has written. If you ordered "braised with polenta" and the dish'consists of 3 balls of our local polenta with 5 slices of beef. Meat "fillet beef " however, is always served in portions 230/250 grams. Just one slice! The filet... More

The hotel is very nice but it it not clear which room you get by which price - our room was superior and was tiny, even if had great views to the mountains. Dinner is good quality but a bit overpriced. People is nice, even if you would expect even more interaction and recommendations from the team.

We stayed a week in this hotel for ski touring. The location is beautiful. The accommodation is not suitable for athletes. No place to dry garments, no place to put the shoes. The owners have also never showed where we could put things. We paid the normal price for half board. Price/quality is very expensive. The breakfast was good. Dinner... More

We have done everything possible to accommodate you. Have you had special prices , you deleted rooms without informing us before your arrival , you wanted single rooms but you had reserved the double. You had breakfast in the morning at dawn every day (at 6:00am), you left your clothes - shoes and skis everywhere throughout the hotel . Have... More

Quick stop in this hidden gem. This valley is most underestimated and underexploited -just used as a crossing pass for Summertime trips to Valais. The restaurant is superb and priced accordingly -I recommend a lunch to passers-by. The hotel displays a remarkable effort to renovate keeping the antique feeling of a Swiss chalet. This is to be praised. You do... More

Location is beautiful. Rooms are small and simpel. There are no closets to store anything. There is no real skiroom or posibilty to dry skiboots. We took half board but the food is really simple. They offer vegetarian food options but even then they give few vegetables and mostly pasta's and cheese. Also at breakfast no vegetables mostly very sweet... More
