I last visited this hotel 30 years ago and felt it was time to show my own children the beauty that is the Bernese Alps. My wife and I travelled to the hotel with our two boys aged 16 and 13. The family that run the hotel were extremely attentive and welcoming and you experience an ambience that is hard to find in this modern world. This is not a place to stay if you are looking for night life and buzz, requiring high speed internet access at a click of a finger and constant distractions for your children but if you are looking for a location to enjoy breathtaking views whilst the world slows down then you cannot get much better. Half Board is definitely the way to go not only because the strangth of the Swiss franc makes Switzerland an expensive place to visit but, most importantly, because the food at the hotel is so good. From a fantastic breakfast buffet to the evening meal you could not fault the quality. In addition, the hotel are very flexible when it comes to offering something that is not on the menu. I have been fortunate to eat at Chateau Relais and Michelin starred restaurants and the food at this hotel was on a par with these establishments. As for our boys - they loved the country and the hotel and the chance to enjoy quality family time and games without the usual technological distractions. We all look forward to returning at some point in the future.
