As we got off the train we could see the hotel on the right hand side just up from the station. On our way up we were met by a herd of cows coming down the road. They all had the traditional bells around their necks and flowers on their heads, this was the day that they were brought down from the mountains.
The man on reception was very helpful as were all the staff, our room was large and airy with two opening windows and a door to the balcony. The views were spectacular!!!
Although there wasn't any air conditioning we were able to sleep with the windows open and drifted off to sleep to the sound of cows bells.
Breakfast was good, traditional swiss with bread, fruit, cheeses and yogurt. Cooked was available. Wii fi was free but we couldn;t get it in our room so had to sit in the lounge
Overall a great experience , just wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights.
