The St Moritz Hotel provided us with nearly everything we were looking for during this weekend stay, ie, comfortable rooms, good location, tasty meals, friendly staff, at a reasonable price. We found an offer on Travelzoo which encouraged us to take a weekend break at a time we wouldn't normally have considered it. We really like the Rock area and the reviews of the St Moritz Hotel sounded promising (we have previously stayed at the St Enodoc but it couldn't compete price wise with this offer). Check-in was efficient and smooth. We arrived by leaving the car in Rock and walking across the beach and up the coastal path to the hotel. We had already upgraded to King Size rooms, realising that the 'cosy' rooms were probably a little too cosy for our tastes. The reception area was relaxed and inviting with battered old leather armchairs scattered around the modern setting. Our room was more or less as expected, not large but not tiny. Probably if we were paying the normal rates I would have been rather disappointed but at this price I can't complain. Not the sort of room you could spend loads of time in though. Such a shame that the weather wasn't good enough for us to use the charming beach hut which is allocated to the room. The bar area was nice enough and the bar staff were exceptionally helpful and accommodating. This was the case in the afternoon and also in the evening. The hot chocolate was just what we wanted after our bracing (March) walk. Although I didn't use it, the swimming pool looked inviting. The sauna and steam room did the job and were better than many we had visited in Germany. However, the changing rooms, whilst not exactly dirty exactly, were not exactly clean either. They should be checked more frequently. Part of the deal was the 5 course tasting menu and this was very good for the price: creamy onion soup, cauliflower risotto, skate, chicken, chocolate tart. Again, probably not dishes I would personally have selected if I went out for a meal but unusual and tasty. Not too small (I am deeply suspicious of tasting menus) and not too big. The size of our group meant that we didn't take much notice of the restaurant ambiance as we were providing our own but I think it had been decorated with a 'sea side' theme in mind. Checkout the next day was easy and efficient. We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and felt it was a fair quality v price ratio. The staff at this hotel are one of its main strengths. Had we been lucky enough to be upgraded to a sea view suite, that would have been the icing on the cake!
The King size rooms are what I would call normal size rooms.
