We stayed for a ski weekend with friends. There were two families, 4 adults and 6 children. We had 4 rooms.
Communication was great. We made the booking on booking.com, but the hotel confirmed the reservation and let us know that it wouldn't be a problem to have a third child in a room. We sent our luggage ahead, and the hotel collected it from the Post for us as we arrived after the luggage office closed. The hotel sent their electric car to collect us when we arrived. We just called when we were a few minutes away from town and the car was waiting when we exited the bus terminal. We loved talking with the owner's wife and learning about the history of the hotel and the area. She was friendly and spent a great deal of time reviewing the piste map with us to make sure we knew where to ski and when the lifts open. We really couldn't ask for more personal or better service. There was gorgeous wood carving throughout the hotel.
Breakfast was typical for a Swiss/European hotel: cereals, yogurt, breads, jams, cheese, and meat. We were served hot beverages promptly and had a table reserved for us.
Skiing in/out of the hotel was easy. The beginner piste is across the street behind a few houses. You just need to cross the street, walk up a bit, and then ski over to the piste. Likewise, you can ski back at the end of the day. Having said that, the road itself was a sheet of ice, so the walk, while short, was treacherous. My husband immediately slipped and fell. If you held the railing on the edge of the street, you could remain upright.
We walked into town for dinner. It was about a 10 minute walk, and our restaurant was on the opposite side of town. We met friends who complained that their hotel was in the "party" area of town and rather loud. While the Jagerhof is a bit out of town (if you consider a few minute walk as "out of town"), it's nice to appreciate the quiet and the views. Every one of our four rooms had a balcony with a wonderful view of the Alps.
We used the hot tub and sauna after skiing. Yes, it's in the basement, but it's in a separate room and well maintained. It was very nice to relax the sore muscles!
We were able to check out a bit late so that we didn't have to pack all of our luggage before skiing the last day. They even exchanged our lift passes for the deposit! We really felt like we were staying with friends who would do anything possible to make our stay nice. I highly recommend the hotel.
