We used to stay here a while ago when the hotel was with its previous owners so we were keen to see what it was like now. We booked eight days stay over Christmas in a family room as we two children aged 5 and 8.
The owners were very friendly in their e mails to us prior to the visit, offered to collect us from the station and organised our lift passes. They also helped with information about ski hire.
When we phoned from the station we were greeted with enthusiasm and my husband and children were droppped off at the ski hire shop.
The staff at the hotel were obviously very happy in their work. Our room was clean with a double bed for us and lovely bunk bed for the children. The balcony gave a view over the town.
There is a games room and table tennis room for the children and there was a good mix of families from all over Europe staying. There is also a pool and sauna upstairs.
The bathroom was very clean and modern with a roomy shower. There was plenty of wardrobe space too.
The food was excellent and the children had a good menu, not just fried stuff and chips. They were willing to try a good variety of food, probably better than they do at home. Our waiting staff were kind and attentive. In the past this hotel had a varied track record with food (depending who was cooking that night) and the improvement is great !
On Christmas Eve St Nicholas came to visit with his donkeys and we all gathered together to sing Stille Nacht. It was also Trychelwoche while we were there, a folk end of year tradition in the Hasliberg involving costumes and very large cow bells.
The hotel is just a short walk from the cable car up to the ski area where there is a brilliant ski school with the most interesting kids programme, and it is also a short walk from the town centre and station. As regards the location it is great for both summer and winter activities.
I can honestly say that it was more like staying with family. We felt so very welcome ! Please see my pictures (not great quality but they give an idea of what it is like !).
