This 'hotel' reminded us of an African safari lodge, although a spacious Swiss chalet could describe it as well. Everything was positive: the warm welcome (a hot towel to wipe your face the moment you step out of the car was great as we felt really cold); the spacious room with view on the valley and excellent amenities; the stove in the room which can be filled with more wood which is lying ready; the hot water bottles; the dining room with a fire in the middle where the guests can warm themselves and get to know each other; the good food (although only buffet was available); the welcome tea or coffee; the friendly staff; the surroundings. We asked for a room with view on the valley but the view was a bit hampered by the trees in front. However, there was still enough to see and I think all rooms have a great view.
