This hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area - it is clean and functional with a quality tv in the bedroom, comfortable beds, an adequate breakfast and an option to take an evening meal which although not cheap by UK standards compares favourably cost wise with restaurant meals.
Now for the negatives. Don't come here if you want an hotel with a good atmosphere. The hostess appeared all but disinterested in her guests with a cold and unaccommodating manner - to the point of refusing changes to her seating plan to allow guests to sit by the window in the restaurant. There was a constant "hovering presence" at breakfast by the hotel owner which we found intimidating, especially given no attempt at conversation was ever made and she and her staff regularly sat down at the table next to us to eat while breakfast was still being served (at this point we were the only people in the hotel and so all the other tables were empty). The breakfast offered was exactly the same every morning - same tinned fruit, same bread, same basic cereal, same peach yoghurt - apart from Sunday when the brown bread was replaced by brioche.
Although the rooms were adequate there was no option to turn the heating on if you felt cold (which I did one day) as it came on automatically apparently linked to external probes. Likewise the extractor fan in the bathroom was also on a timer and didn't work between 10.30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m.
As we were out travelling and visiting most of the time this did not spoil our holiday but we left with the distinct impression that this hotel is run according to a tight schedule and budget which do not allow for indulging the guests who stay there.
Notwithstanding the above, the scenery was BREATHTAKING and we loved Switzerland.
