“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed January 1, 2009

We booked the Residence Panorama as we had 3 children with us, and wanted the flexibility of cooking ourselves, and as we are non skiers, also somewhere we could entertain the children with space around us, not a cramped hotel room. We also had a budget.
I'd read other reviews, and was expecting this place to be just about ok considering it wasn't hugely expensive, and I definitely knew it wouldn't be a 4 star as it suggests.
It was better than ok - spacious apartment, always very warm, comfy beds, well equipped in the kitchen department, kids were always in the pool, ice rink straight over the road,billiards downstairs...5 minutes to the train station.
There isn't a restaurant or shop, although there's a large Coop within 5 minutes walking distance.
Any negatives - bit scruffy, MDF wood lurking around the apartment, no large mugs for cups of hot tea, but apart from that, all good I would say.

We have just returned from a week's stay at these apartments. Fantastic undiscovered resort with great skiing and brilliant snow. Apartments provide basic accommodation for skiiers. We took an apartment for six when there were only four of us and were glad we did as it would have been very cramped in the studio apartment. We had a double bedroom, a substantial fold down double bed and two fun fold out bunks. And two bathrooms which was great.

The main disappointment for me was the lack of ANY maid service or change of towels. I was advised that if I wanted a fresh towel I would have to pay CHF 8 (£4) which was not a problem but seemed very petty. There is a washing machine in the basement if you are desperate, which we weren't.

The pool is freezing and has no charm about it really.

The location is a MAJOR problem if you don't want to have to walk up a steep hill to get anywhere or do anything, as the apartments are located downhill from the main street.

Having said that, the apartments are perfectly serviceable, and very clean. Quiet too and with fantastic views. We just would probably stay somewhere more central next time.

Stayed March 2008
