We stayed here in January 2012 for our annual ski holiday with friends. It is an old style alpine hotel with lots of character which we liked. The manageress was visable every evening and came round both the dining room and bar area. The rooms were good with lots of space and modern updated bathrooms. The food was good with a good selection at both breakfast and dinner. We were there at the time of the world cup and had the Swiss ski team in the hotel which made both the breakfast and dinner interesting along with the evenings in the bar area. The hotel has a ski room and a heated boot room. The hotel is about five minutes walk to the cable car and ten minutes from the railway station so it is not ski in/out. The station was very busy at the weekends so be prepared. It is worth getting the whole area pass and with planning you can get to all areas with a little walking required between stations. It is also worth taking the trip to the revolving restaurant used from the James Bond film and the black run out of the restaurant is a good ski home.
