Choose this hotel for the almost limitless high alpine walking routes available in the vicinity. Saastal area is a much better alternative to the adjacent Zermatt valley, which is overrun with the huge tour groups and hordes of “selfie” takers.
Family run hotel and obviously doing it right as near fully booked in mid September – Herr Zurbriggen is very sociable and advises where best to go to suit weather conditions, usually over a complimentary drink after dinner.
Good location if travelling by car as easy parking (unlike car free Saas Fee and having to garage well away from the hotel) – Complimentary lift and area bus pass for the duration of stay (Adjacent bus stop and convenient access to Saas Fee/Grund).
Comfortable bedrooms with balconies – Traditional style – “Austrian Twin” double beds – In-room safe but not fridge. No lounge area but bar/restaurant doubles instead. Only quibble is the chair/bench upholstery needs refurbishment.
Excellent wholesome four course evening meal at SFr 20pp (Soup/Salad/Choice of two Mains/Dessert – Reasonably priced drinks.More
