“Friendly and cozy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

After a long hike, this was a great place to relax in! It had nice rooms, and the dorms looked decent as well. There are friendly staff and a happy dog that lives there! The food was just OK, but it was great to get it after a day of hiking and it was very orderly and Swiss feeling. The atmosphere was amazing there, and we even saw ibex right out side the front patio! We got great photos and were sad to leave!

Room Tip: Don't stay in the annex building, there are no balconies there!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

Since more than 19 years I spend 3 days each summer at this place, fishing and hiking. It's been 15 years that its been run by the same family and every year I am pleased to find the same friendly atmosphere. The place is simple, well organized and corresponds exactly with what I expect to find in the mountains, with authentic people, a warm welcome and great service! The hospitality is great, their team is friendly and helpful, and they will make you feel at home in no time.
Must try their croute au fromage "Salanfe" with bacon and tomatoes, made by the cook Manu. Also their Apricot pie is a killer! You will also find wine from Valais and different specialities, such as the Genepi made by Dédé, local spirit that you must try!
Thanks to Nico and the family for the great time spent there, definitely looking forward to going back again next year.

Room Tip: Mostly dormitories but good quality ones / only 8 rooms book early / with suny balcony boo
