We have been there for a family weekend and the hotel is fantastic. The staff is amazingly friendly, always available to help and willing to make us have the perfect weekend. The hotel is very well located, with a good set of services and a great restaurant.

Nice little hotel with friendly service. The rooms are compact but very comfortable and provide all that you need for a short stay. Has a real boutique'ee feeling to it. Very relaxed and laid back.

Very nice location by a little lake and with a wonderful view of the valley. The extraordinary aspect is the silence that you experience from your room with the outside world...not a noise. My room was very generous in size with a comfortable sleeping area and seperate living area ,nice bathroom , wonderful terrace and an excellent coffe machine .... More

Be careful with this hotel if you arrive late at night or depart early in the morning. There is no 24-hours Front Desk service in summer and there is no info about it on the hotel’s web site. Moreover, they don’t do breakfast before 7:30am. If you leave early & breakfast is included into your room rate, think what you... More

We stay here for three nights in July. Loved the hotel. It had a very homey fell to it. Staff were very friendly, spoke English quite well, and had lots of helpful information.

For the price of 350CHF per night this nice Hotel/Spa could have had better WiFi, the speed was quite slow. The bar had some food plates "dried meat plate" on the menu but they were not available outside dinner and lunch times. The whole point of bar food is that you have a snack at a time other than lunch... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week's ski holiday through Inghams. The small size and quiet location was the appeal for us, and we stayed with another couple. The hotel staff were lovely and friendly, and very helpful. For example, they offer a free lift service to the nearest lift station, which whilst only 500 meters away, they were happy... More

Gone are the traditional menu board replaced by our "a la carte" half-board; finished the sad days of rain, hello to our spa. In a word: "Hello true art of living!" ... more   less
