The location is the highlight of this charming alpine hotel. Most of the rooms have a stunning view, which waking up to is an amazing treat. The beds were comfortable, if a bit simple. Same goes for the room. The service wasn't the best, but when you could find them the staff were helpful and friendly enough. Ignore the reviews saying they are rude, they aren't; just very Swiss (most Swiss people are relatively curt.) The food is also another selling point. After a long day of skiing, settling down to a fantastic meal is always a very pleasant experience. The meals were home-cooked from scratch, and prepared in exciting and fun ways (I especially enjoyed high-quality beef consume with gold flakes!). Unfortunately, there was a surprising lack of facilities in the hotel itself, although plenty to keep one busy around the area. There wasn't even a pool! However, the stay couldn't have been much better, and the value is insane! Definitely recommend.
