We spent three nights at the hotel for a ski break. The room was clean tidy and had everything you would require. Breakfast was great with the usual cereals, bread, croissants, fruit, meat and ham offered in Switzerland, buffet style so you could fill up for a day on the slopes. The staff were extremely welcoming and warm. We ate in for dinner on a couple of the nights, the menu is not extensive but adequate and is the only reason I'm scoring a very good rather than an excellent. The hotel owners have only recently taken over and maybe over time the menu will increase. Great access to the slopes it was only 50 metres walk to the chair lift and an easy run home in the evening. Great place, great fun and have booked for the summer already to walk in the mountains.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Pension de Morgins was established in 1880 by the Defago family and taken over by George and Juliette Monay in 1955. In 2012, it was acquired by the current owners, Heleen and Jan de Graaf. Jan has been a Morgins resident since attending Alpin College in 1972 and later choosing to be domiciled in Morgins. Until spring 2015, the establishment was run by tenants. Last summer and autumn, extensive renovations were carried out and the concept was changed entirely. The first thing to change was the name. From 2001 to spring 2015, the hotel was known as La Reine des Alpes. Its new name is “Chez Jan | La Pension de Morgins”. The formula has been changed to luxury Bed & Breakfast. The entire ground floor has been remodelled into an inviting sitting room with high and low seating. A large fireplace has been built in, and the entire building has been refurbished in chalet style by Jacques Multone (and company). The rooms have been upgraded with new curtains, linen, furniture, fresh tea and Nespresso machines. A significant change is that the grounds are now open to hotel guests only. We want guests to feel at HOME at Chez Jan. In the mornings, Kirsten serves a very comprehensive breakfast. She also bakes tarts, which are served as a sweet treat during the day. In the afternoons and evenings, your host Sam prepares drinks for guests and serves light snacks. We are also busy with plans for a wellness centre, which we hope to complete in 2016 – 2017. Everything is geared towards catering to our guests’ needs! ... more less
