Stayed her for 3 nights. A family of 2 adults and 2 children. The inn was about a 10-min walk away. We took the Family Summer Special so stayed in a 4-bedded room (bunk beds) which includes breakfast and dinner. It was a very good deal at CHF200 per night. The breakfast was quite decent and sufficient for our needs, with cold cuts, bread, croissants, butter, jam, cheese, cereals, milk, juices, coffee and hot chocolate. The lady named Elsa who I sometimes see at the breakfast counter, and sometimes at the bar was very friendly and warm. She gladly helped when we asked for the milk to be topped up, or when we needed extra hot water. Generally the other staff were also quite helpful.
The quality of dinner at a restaurant La Piruetta was good but I had a bit of problem with the lack of choice. There was only 1 restaurant we could go to and the restaurant had a daily menu for guests of the Inn Lodge. This was different from their standard menu. The first day, they had salad for starter which was fine. The main was steak and as I could not take beef, I asked for options; which apparently they were not prepared with any option. To their credit, they suggested pasta with veg; and I asked if that could come with chicken, they obliged. Dessert was a delicious Chocolate cake. On the 2nd night, the starter was cheese with tomatoes which was also fine. Then came the main - Pasta with tomato sauce and minced beef....so I had to tell them I could not take beef again. They then said they can give me what I had the night before...which I did not feel like eating the same, so I asked if they could just cook pasta with tomato sauce and with chicken...this drew a blank. They said that they would check wtih the kitchen but explained that they cannot accommodate as they are not ready with chicken. So I just ate pasta with plain tomato sauce (no veg, no meat). Dessert was ice cream with strawberries. On my last night, I despaired of having the same again...lucky the main this time was grilled pork chop with french fries which I could eat. Starter was a much-welcome soup and dessert was ice cream. We paid for drinks on all 3 nights as that is not covered by the hotel. Overall I am pleased with the standard of food and the service but I really wished the restaurant had planned for maybe 2 options so guests with dietary restrictions could enjoy.
This is the reason why I wished I had chosen the Studio M w Kitchenette (without meals) instead as I could then cook whatever I like without restrictions.
On the room, it was as what you would expect from dormitories, basic, but clean and bright. Beds and quilts were decent but the pillow was way too soft, it sank when you rest upon it. The room feels a little cold but I have no idea if there is heating (can't find) and too tired to ask.
Overall, I would recommend this place but if having limited choice for dinner is not your cup of tea, don't go for the half-board option.
