We had a fantastic time at the hotel. The decor is really amazing. You feel immediately transformed as you enter the lobby. It's a newish hotel but with a vintage style. The lobby and lounge gives you the right ambience after coming back from a cold ski trip. We went in February and never saw so much snow in our lives, over 2 meters plus more!!! It was so welcoming stepping into this cosy hotel, warming up at the fireplace.
The bedroom and bathroom was immaculately clean.
There was no tea and coffee facility in the bedroom. This we are used to from the English hotels. Even the most basic B&B will have this. So for every warm drink you need to go downstairs. For breakfast you do get a fabulous choice of food. You really feel pampered coming down in the morning, you name it they had, starting with a good strong cup of coffee down to boiled eggs many different types of bread plus all sorts of spreads and jams. As well a nice choice of swiss muesli etc.. Not bad for a 3* hotel. For dinner there is no restaurant on the premises, and the nearest one is a good 10 minute walk (through the cold snow). However you do get a nice little fridge in your room. The manager was terrific and let me warm up my meals in the microwave. There is a supermarket locally where you can buy ample take out dishes.
The hotel also has a great gym plus beautiful swimming pool as well a fabulous outdoors hot tub. A must to try going outside below zero C into the hot tub looking at the surrounding snow. What an experience!!! The only thing that bothered me was the fact that the whole leisure area closed at eight. Lets face it during the day we were out skiing until it got dark. Then you warm up, dinner etc. so there isn't much time time to enjoy, by eight P.M. we were all told to vacate the leisure area. It wasn't just me and my partner. There were others as well disappointed at this. All in we had a great time and would definitely want to come back again.
