I was staying at a number of 'relais et chateaux' properties in France and Switzerland during summer 2007. When I first arrived I was slightly underwhelmed after a number of very swish places. But very quickly the Alpenrose came to be a top favourite of all those places I stayed and excellent value at the prices I then paid.
I was given a very spacious ground floor room with extremely comfortable 'sleigh' bed, a very pleasant sitting area with large settee and chairs, desk, table etc which opened onto a truly delightful private terrace with wild flowers and stunning views of mountains and glacier. I did not dine in the 'fine dining' restaurant but thoroughly enjoyed the more informal restaurant downstairs, gorging myself on excellent raclette, boiled potatoes and trimmings - as much as you could eat. Staff were very friendly and the whole experience left me feeling very relaxed. A return is a definite, when I get the opportunity;
