We arrived in St Moritz in torrential rain, from the Glacier Express. What we failed to realise is that between the end of the ski ing season (end of April) and the beginnning of June, St Moritz is virtually shut!! Many hotels are closed for refurbishment most of the big name shops are also "on holiday" and there were road works right outside the hotel, which is in an elevated position in the middle of the town BUT...what a special hotel this is! Our room, which had a balcony facing the St Moritzsee and the mountains, was very spacious with a small sitting area and a very large balcony. The bed was huge and comfortable and although there was no hospitality tray, you only had to ring down to reception for a tray of free tea or coffee. The bathroom was the jewel in the crown...huge with marble floors and sink unitgs, a big bath and power shower over, and a seperate toilet. Really lovely, good complimentary toiletries. We had a room on the 4th floor and if you took the lift you missed something really special, because on every floor are wonderful antiques, and quirky pieces such as chairs made from antlers. Breakfast was excellent, a very varied buffet, however our one criticism was that we hadnt booked for dinner in the restaurant and we both felt that the maitred' looked down his nose at us and treated us differently from the locals who were obviously regulars. The food was good but very overpriced and we ate elsewhere the next night. The reception staff were very friendly and helpfull and we were transported back to the station in the hotel vehicle at no cost. Taxis are exhorbitant here. I had thought St Moritz would be pretentious (it was!) but this hotel is a gem
