As I wasn't skiing this year I needed a spa hotel to keep me occupied while my husband was taken by hotel minibus to the slopes. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in with facilities to please us both. Extremely comfortable everywhere this hotel ticks all the boxes. Nothing is too much trouble, all the staff are very helpful and pleasant. Since the hotel is a 15 minute walk to the nearest village, Saanen or Gstaad, the accommodation and services provided have been carefully thought out so that convenience and comfort is paramount. The swimming pool and well equipped gym are available all day, while the sauna etc are available après ski from 3pm. A very reasonable half board option is available if you stay for 3 or more nights, so you can sample local specialities without having to go out in the cold. There is an apple IMAC in every room preloaded with a large iTunes selection. Free Internet access throughout the hotel and IPad loan is available too. Great bar with half price cocktail hour before dinner in the large comfortable lounge where skiing can be viewed on the large tv screen. The beds are extremely comfortable and extra pillows are readily supplied on request. We were in a north facing room which was quite adequate for our needs but the south facing rooms are larger with balconies and some are themed in unusual ways. There is a large play room in the basement and a games room. The only slightly annoying thing was that we were seated on a long bench table between 2 families for our evening meal every night. We didn't query this and it was entertaining to some extent but not quite what we expected. Overall we really enjoyed our visit and would definitely go back and try out the south facing rooms.
