Must be the most unique hotel I have ever stayed in. From the funicular used to access the hotel, to the clinical appearance of some rooms in this old sanatorium, this is a one off! Oh, not forgetting the ski runs out the back of the hotel.
We stayed for a conference - best conference venue ever. Nothing like a couple of runs before the morning session or at lunchtime!
Sun-basking on the terrace is the norm at lunch time taking advantage of the restorative mountain air. Our front-facing room has an enormous balcony/terrace with fab views right down the valley.
Check in staff were as clinical as some of the rooms! Otherwise staff were really helpful - especially the cleaner who has my shirt ironed within 10 mins of me asking!
Don't expect modern rooms - much of the style and furnishing is retained from the hotel's previous life which adds to the charm. Showers are a bit hard for a 6ft2 guy to get under!
WiFi was free - hooray!
Breakfast was great - huge elegant dining room and fantastic selection. Tip - request a cappucino or espresso if you like to avoid thermos-style coffee. Staff will oblige at no extra cost.
This is Switzerland so just remember to close your eyes at checkout so you don't see the cost!More
