This is a perfectly pleasant alpine-style hotel. It is kept spotlessly clean and the bedrooms and bathrooms are unexceptional but fine. The rooms are let down however by the bedding and towels. The sheet on my bed was so ill-fitting that I woke up each morning to find myself on a bare mattress and the pillows felt like they were stuffed with lumps of foam; the towels meanwhile were not only thin but some actually had holes in them. It's a pity because this skimpiness lets down an otherwise fine hotel. We were not too sure about being asked on arrival what we wanted to have for dinner and, in fact, opted for a la carte as the fixed menu did not coincide with any of the dishes for which the restaurant is recommended. It obviously cost more but it did mean that we had a more leisurely meal and got to try their outstanding trout and steaks. The staff asked each morning whether or not we wanted the fixed meal, so it's easy to decide on the day whether or not to stay with the half-board option. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful with wines too. Overall a good hotel but not one I'd return to unless the bedrooms offer a little more comfort.
