My husband & I have just returned to London from a week's ski-ing staying half-board at the family run, 150+ year old Fluela Hotel, right opposite the railway station in Davos Dorf. We really could not recommend the service & cuisine highly enough - & we like to think we have exacting standards. The buffet breakfasts & six-course dinners were an experience - consistently excellent, Italian waiters friendly, sophisticated, highly professional. Extensive wine list but expensive by English standards, sometimes 3x the price. Staff greeted us by our names & were always friendly, the classy & delightful owner of many years, Herr. Gredig, appearing on our arrival and chatting on our departure. Our south facing, spacious, fourth floor room was spotlessly clean, beds extremely comfortable, new linen every other day, decor slightly dated by London standards. We asked for a permanent kettle & cups in our room for tea-making which duly arrived but was not standard. There must have been a wonderful south-facing view down the valley once now sadly obscured by a modern apartment block (not obtrusive) but our small, south-facing balcony still got plenty of sun. East facing rooms overlooking main drag & station might not be peaceful due to traffic. The hotel is the closest to the piste down from the main Davos ski area, Parsenn, perfect if you don't like walking with skis, etc. Free internet was a bonus. Pianist in bar/lounge before dinner. Didn't go down to pool or spa as too busy skiing. Relaxing, peaceful, comfortable, spacious but not particularly plush or luxurious by city/London standards. If you like unpretentious small to medium sized family run hotels (this one has about 80 rooms) I would recommend the Fluela without hesitation & look forward to returning. Absolutely worth the £200 per person per week extra we had to pay for the 5-star priviledge.
