Having read mixed reviews we went with an open mind, remembering that it was a childrens hotel and not to expect luxury for us but a good time for our son and therefore a relaxing time for us.
The location was beautiful but about 20 minutes drive away from the town of Davos and from the outside it was picturesque.
We were greeted very warmly and then taken to our room where we were rather disappointed to see it was even more basic than anticipated and the childrens room also contained the kitchenette (with oven and hob!). The balcony was on a corner of the building and received no sun (and the other oddity was the height of the toilet - we were on tiptoes when sat so our son had no chance of getting up himself).
We visited the creche next which was in the attic and rather gloomy and stuffy and smaller than it appeared in the brochure but the staff were very good with the kids even though our son quickly bored of the small ball pool. The playground outside was poor. The wellness area the same and kids paddling pool tiny.
The food was the worst part of the visit, the kids food was adequate burger/ fishfinger fayre apart from the very salty vegetables and packet mash but the ice cream freezer was a winner. The adult menu was very fawlty towers consisting of much catering supply packet stuff and tiny portions with course 2 always being packet soup or fruit juice (very retro!)
The travel pass for the post bus and the use of the off-road buggies were great and we were fortunate with the weather so could be outdoors as our son didnt want to use the onsite facilities. The pool in Davos "eau la la" was great.
Also booked in for a massage which ended up being in the same room as the solarium and was perfunctory ( and the masseur was clearly a heavy smoker).
If it hadn`t been for the genuine friendliness and helpfulness of the staff our visit would have been awful particularly as we had paid a lot for the "child friendly atmosphere and facilities". Would not recommend.
