Make sure to get some time in the outside hot tub, admiring the beautiful ice cliff lit up at night. A lovely week-end in a great hotel. The staff is very kind and also went out of their way to advise us on the best places to do backcountry skiing. The hotel residing dog is also a real cutie. :-)

We were really disappointed with the value for money. We understand these are COVID times which is why we were in touch with the hotel in the lead up to our stay to check that the spa was all open and that there would be a restaurant open for my boyfriends 30th birthday dinner. They confirmed it all was and that if anything changed they would let us know. I had also asked if the hotel would help me make his 30th special. On arrival we were told all restaurants were closed, bar open until 10pm and we later found out the outdoor jacuzzi was closed too. The room was nice but absolutely not worth the money, no mini bar, uncomfortable bed and pillows, not even complementary water (or glasses to drink tap water in). Nothing, I was expecting luxury and it just wasn’t. I complained and was told that there were only 12 guests in the hotel (as all others had cancelled) and it was a very difficult time. I understand that, but as one of the few paying guests we just felt totally ignored, if they had been honest with us in the messages, we probably would have cancelled too. We did have our breakfast table decorated with happy birthday which was nice but knowing that the hotel was empty, an upgrade or free drink or something like that would have helped make up for the disappointment but we felt like they just didn’t really care. Would not stay again.

Dear r90becca as a family business, "COVID" is the worst thing that could happen to us. :-( We are really sorry, we could not fullfill your wishes as you might expected them. Unfortunately we are not allowed to have the Minibar filled up because of "COVID". The glasses must be washed with 90 degrees because of Covid. As we are not allowed to have boiling water in the room (security reason) we had to take them away. We provide glassed from the bar on request and FREE of course. We usually have coffee and espresso mugs in the room, but due to COVID, we were not allowed to. I know its not 4 star like but we have no other choice. We serve all drink from without service charge to the rooms because of Covid. FREE DRINK: we did call the Fuji Restaurant and payed also 2 glasses of Champagne to them which they had to offer to you because your boyfriend had birthday. We called them and they told me that they give it to you. OUTDOOR JACUZZI: The outdoor jacuzzi is not closed! We just open it on reservation because we have to know the names and we have to be sure that there are not more than 4 people in the same time inside the jacuzzi (COVID reasons). But that’s our mistake maybe we did not explained it well by arrival. We will check the process and will speak with the front office team once more. BAR: On the 23 of October the canton Wallis closed all bars and restaurants at 10pm. WE HAD TO CLOSE! If we have still clients at the bar after 10pm we would pay a fine of 2500.-CHF. As a family business We as a family business we suffer a lot due to COVID. RESTAURANT: Yes that’s right that’s completely our mistake and we are very sorry for that. We had so many changes day by day due to COVID because the government changed the rules. But that should be no excuse and we are very sorry for that! SUMMARY: We are very sorry that we could not fulfill your wishes, but as you see the biggest problems occured due to COVID and its laws and orders from the canton Wallis! Bad feedbacks like yours hurt a lot, especially at times like these. Of course we made mistakes and we try to change them and adapt. But many points you described where a release from COVID. Anyways, I big sorry and who know: maybe everybody deserves a second chance in life!

We were met at the train station within 5 minutes of arriving. The hotel is not on the main strip, but a short walk up the hill. Claudia was so lovely and helpful at the front desk. The rooms were extremely clean with mountain views. The pool and indoor hot tub area is like a greek spa so beautiful. Then you go outside and the outdoor tub good sized and surrounded by towering icicles above and a river below which is absolutely magical! The breakfast has assigned tables and the options and food did definitely not disappoint. They also have a five star restaurant on property with an adorable bar area. I would definitely recommend Hotel Sonne and their staff especially Fabian was above par!
