I stayed three nights as part of a group tour in early March 2013. The hotel lounge and dining area is impressive with elegance from yesteryear.
The hotel is undergoing a gradual program of improving its rooms and on this occasion mine was one of those still to be renewed with decor from the late 60s and furniture from the early 70's Ikea-esq style. There were some minor issues with the room on arrival (such as the shower needed to be repaired and the bed itself was so low to the ground I had difficulty in getting in and out) but the staff were quickly on hand to make repairs as necessary. The room itself was not suitable for someone with more of a walking disability than I suffer having steps along the corridor, a step up into the room and a step down into the spacious bathroom (with lino on the walls as well as the floor - I said it was 60's style!). Against that though, had the location of the room been a problem I am sure that the helpful staff would have relocated me had I asked. Bedroom faced the road and had no noise from either the road or the railway overnight.
The food was slightly limited working from set courses in the evening (but that may have been the deal our group was on) but the food was well cooked, tasty and seconds were sometimes available.
The room even managed to have BBC East, BBC Channel Islands and BBC West available - a first for my visits to the Alps.
Solid 3 star let down on this occasion by the room allocated
