We were hiking in the mountains above Ardez and there was too much snow in the pass to continue to the SAC Hut Tuoi, so we made our way down to Ardez. We were soaked to the skin, muddy and unhappy! Fortunately, the Alvetern Hotel had two double rooms available and we arrived on their doorstep to the MOST wonderful welcome! We had our beers outside on the small terrace, and then were offered the best possible welcome: newspaper to put in our sodden boots and the best table in the restaurant! The manager and staff couldn't do enough for us, and despite the fact we were in hiking gear, and not dressed smartly, we were made to feel no different to any other guests.
Dinner was delicious, with a good choice of dishes and wines. The bedrooms were extremely well equipped - I was able to dry my trousers with the aid of the hairdryer! Good showers, comfortable beds and bottles of water.
Breakfast was the usual brilliant Swiss buffet, and we were invited to take food away with us for our lunch - plastic bags, kitchen foil and small bottles of water all provided!
What wonderful service. We would recommend this hotel to anyone walking in the area.More
