My husband and I stayed at the Simmenhof for a week of skiing in March, along with a group of 9 other friends. The hotel is professionally run, the rooms are large and nicely furnished and the wellness center was excellent, according to the friends who used it. The meal plan offered lots of choice and the food was good and nicely presented. However, I felt it lacked the warmth and personal touch of a family run hotel. One night dinner took all of 3 hours for 3 courses, but after we all complained, the manager stepped in and saw that this did not happen again. Guests could check email on a central computer for free, but I had to purchase minutes to use my laptop.
The location, 3km from the center of Lenk, could be nice in the summer, but in March the snow had melted in the valley and the field paths were muddy. We had to walk along a dusty highway with speeding traffic.
The van service the hotel offered to the various lifts, however, was excellent. The driver spoke no English but was extremely accommodating and friendly. A phone call from the last lift would ensure his arrival in just a few minutes. The ski terrain is vast, with lots of choice and wonderful scenic views.
