Staying at this hotel is like stepping back a hundred years, but with good showers, excellent service and first class food.
We had a top floor room with wonderful views of the mountains. There are no lifts. Crisp white bed-linen looks and feels lovely. The beds are quite hard, the pillows, only one supplied per person, are extremely soft - we would have appreciated extra pillows. White towels (could be a bit bigger for showering) and shower/hair gel are provided in the rooms.
The room was very warm, we turned the radiator off as soon as we got in. Overnight we had the windows open. The stream just outside was quite full and very loud. Not quite the gently tinkling brook I was hoping for.
No en suite facilities. Showers are shared, two to each floor, with basins in the same area, all look to be very new. Everything was very clean.
Dinner was first rate. It is a set menu included in the price of the room, drinks are extra. We started with a prosecco before the first course of a really excellent white wine soup. Neither of us is particularly found of pumpkin so the next course of Kurbiscrustini was not really to our taste. The beef stroganoff was made with very tender beef and served on a bed of piped mashed potato. With this we had 50cl of a very acceptable Valpolicella and litre of sparkling water. Finally the pannacotta dessert with an intense raspberry sauce was gorgeous.
The following morning breakfast continued in the same vein: bowls of yoghurts and fresh fruits including blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, all perfectly fresh and completely unblemished - the tastes were wonderful. Several different fresh breads and bread rolls, home-made jams - the apricot was superb - and excellent coffee served with hot milk, the coffee pot kept warm on a burner at the table. Really excellent way to start the day.
Our bill for one night including evening meal, drinks and breakfast came to 292 CHF. Guests can take the post bus to and from the hotel free of charge.
