The hotel is a living dichotomy. It has the most amazing sauna/wellness area, yet the bathrooms in the guest rooms are well below the 5* standard (first 5* i have been to which doesnt provide hair conditioner, and claims this is quite normal for a hotel...). It has the most amazing wine selection (Swiss ones in particular) and food quality, yet the service delivery is very patchy. From the outside it looks like a horrible 1980s Alpine crime, yet inside it is cozy and the gardens are absolutely stunning. Our stay was a summer stay during which we spent most of our time in the deckchairs in the garden and in the pools (hot saltwater and warm sweetwater!).
