After many years staying at "The Palace" during the annual obligatory half term skiing trip to St Moritz (FEB) decided to try something else. Always thought Palace overpriced (although a wonderful experience) but ex wife liked its showiness! Decided to take advice of locals and try the centrally located Schweizerhoff. On booking, disappointed at having to take dinner option but my word, it turned out to be excellent value for money. A four course meal that is unlikely to be bettered at any other restaurant in St. Moritz (I have tried most of them) at a cost of only £15.00 per head. In addition to the outstanding dinner, the breakfast was excellent. Far more was on offer than one normally finds on mainland Europe and for that matter in the UK. Service at both meals was impeccable and the dining room team extremely friendly and efficient. Each night, the management provided some form of entertainment free of charge which included a champagne reception where vintage champers flowed into my seemingly bottomless glass; a ride in horse drawn sleighs through the woods; an evening where tenors sang the classics. Not your Butlins this. The room was outstanding and large enough for 2 adults and one 11 year old; with a balcony and view of the lake. There is a sun lounging area and a sauna. We also had use of the pool at the Steffani across the road. Staff throughout the hotel were fantastic and could not do enough to help us and make our stay as perfect as possible. There was however one exception in paradise and that was the lounge bar where the speed, quality and attitude of the person delivering what she believed to be service was severly lacking and could explain why the place was always empty. This however is not a problem as there are 3 other lively bars with live music (and another restaurant) in the hotel. Staying here really added to the whole experience and I am going back for Easter. What better recommendation could there be?
