To be quite honest I had mixed feelings when I booked a room here for one night,reading some of the reviews on here made me think twice...
However, just take away the location and the hotel is perfectly fine, my room was good, comfortable bed and clean, the staff, check in and food all better than ok. Dinner was much better than I expected, not much choice, only 2 main course choices, but I suppose given the supply logistics I imagine a massive menu choice would be foolish to expect.
However, the location is what make it, I was so lucky with the weather, clear blue skies all day on the day I arrived, spectacular sunset and then the full moon rising behind me. Outraegously wonderful!
Not normally a morning person was up at around 0500 to watch the moon vanish behind the Matterhorn and then a while later light up with the suns rays on it. And the stars..........
I doubt if it had been cloudy all day and night I would have been so impressed, but sometimes it all works out right!
