I stayed here in Feb 2014 with my partner during a ski trip. We arrived early before out check in time and the hotel staff were very accommodating and checked us in.
We opted for the dinner bed and breakfast option and were not let down at all. Dinner was a 6 course taster menu. The portions were huge and the food of very good quality. The same went for breakfast, a menu to choose and again a good portion and great quality.
The staff were very welcoming and made us feel as ease. They were very attentive and no request was too much.
The rooms are adequate, if there was one small complaint it would be the noise of the floor boards, but I guess that is expected with an old building.
All in all myself and my partner enjoyed our stay and would certainly use the hotel again.
