Our 6th stay at the Excelsior Planet. We were a family group of 9. We continue to be very, very impressed by every aspect of this family-run hotel. My wife and I were in a junior suite, facing the Matterhorn. The room was serviced twice a day and was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The five course evening meals are magnificent in quality, range and presentation, while the wine list is vast. Our party included two children aged 6 & 3 who were treated royally by all the staff.
The breakfasts have been enhanced with home-made jam while cooked breakfasts are also offered. The lounge area with a real log fire and a good bar service is very relaxing.
On one day, every lift in Cervinia was closed due to high winds but Valtournenche was open. The hotel minibus took us there, driven by one of the owners (20 mins & 5km on a winding mountain road) and then collected us in the afternoon. We offered to pay but they refused to take any money since Cervinia was closed. (Incidentally, although it can be windy in Cervinia, this was my first experience of a total closure in nine visits)
I remain surprised that this hotel is only ranked 7th in Cervinia - it really is outstanding. We plan to return again in 2014.
