Position, service, food, cleanliness, friendliness, all first class. We would go there again.
We booked a south-facing superior room on the third floor and it was just what we wanted. A couch, table and large sunny balcony with table and chairs and fantastic views of the Jungfrau. We would want that room or a 4th floor room if we go back!
The Bathroom was modern, with a bath/shower and twin sink - a bit of a squeeze to get to the bath past the loo but how many times do you need to do that? The hotel manager and staff are friendly and professional and do all they can to help. They all appear to like their jobs and working at the hotel and it comes over in the quality of service. This hotel really is run to an exceptional standard.
Stayed half-board which worked well for us - great breakfast and fantastic 5 course meal in the evenings with lots of choice. There are even a couple of options to 'swap' one of your evening meals for another hotel/restaurant in the chain if you would like a change. Some TA reviews comment on the age of guests as - 'older', 'OAPs', etc and yes there is a high proportion in that age bracket but the reason is they stay for the service and quality of stay. Many come back year after year for the peace, quiet and service and wouldn't go anywhere else. They are liked and looked after by the staff. However there are younger people and children are catered for very well though there aren't play, swimming pool and other attractions etc. that may be at other hotels for teenagers, but they are available in the town.
If you are a TV fan then the English speaking TV channels are limited to news channels so you may be disappointed, but I would be surprised if many went there to watch TV, It's an Alpine town in Switzerland
It is located only a few minutes walk away from the main street, and is very quiet at night even with the windows fully open. It's an easy walk to the station but on leaving we asked for our bags to be dropped at 11am and they were there exactly on time.
