My husband and I visited from York, England for a week. We had an amazing stay. The hotel is perched at the top of the village with fantastic views down the valley. We were picked up from the station at the start of our stay and caught the hotel bus into the village and back every day in the morning and evening. The valley is wonderful for cross country skiing, whether a beginner or more experienced,and you can catch the scenic train between the villages when you get tired. There is also excellent winter walking, snow shoeing and trips to visit the stunning glaciers just down the valley. We also walked up to Hotel Ronquelle and then ski-biked down, which was great fun. A shop in the village hires all the equipment you will need. There are plenty of good cafes dotted amongst the villages to rest whilst you are skiing or walking. The hospitality was very warm and welcoming and the hosts were very happy to help with everything we needed, including recommending some good walks and day trips. We only speak a little German but were very easily able to get by with that plus some French and English. The wellness centre is a welcome addition with a large jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and there was plenty of space available for us to use it every evening and towelling robes are provided. The food was just the best that we have ever had at a hotel - very tasty and well presented with a changing menu every day, including local specialities. Our menu ranged from beef fillet and lamb entrecote, to pork fillet with the local cheese and perch wrapped in bacon. It equalled mitchelin starred restaurants we have visited in the UK and was beautifully presented. The local wine is really worth a try and some of the best we have tasted in the world. We stayed in a Castle Suite, which has much more room than you usually get in a hotel and had a lovely balcony with views down the valley. There was a TV which we could get BBC News 24 on. We would most definitely recommend a visit and plan to return to the region and the hotel in the future.
