I first came to Hotel Ofenhorn after an aborted attempt in August, 2006 at the Bortellicke, which was impassable due to snow. I'd walked nearly six hours and arrived at the Hotel Ofenhorn, almost empty at that period when the Swiss Germans are mostly finished with their vacations. It was a haven of comfort and cleanliness. I dragged my husband back this time and it was even better, but unfortunately more expensive. It has been rated a "historic hotel" and the prices have increased accordingly. We paid 160chf for a double room that did not have a bathroom, and I imagine having a bathroom would be even more expensive. It is very beautiful, though, and still worth it. They've managed to keep the old wall paper and painted decorations on the ceilings. The wooden floors show years of wear and care. The food was excellent, and no Aromat to be found (the ubiquitous Valais spice, sort of like a no-fat bouillon found in all medium quality restaurants). Beautiful hotel, and worth the price.
