Off to a great start when a friendly guy from the hotel picked us up in an electric buggy at the station and took us to the hotel, pointing out useful places along the route. The entrance to the hotel is via a short underground tunnel (think the entrance to a Bond villain's lair) before being whisked up via a glass lift to reception.
Check in was seamless and we were given a tour of the facilities and shown how various bits in the room work.
From station to making a coffee in our room must have been less than 20 mins.
We had a suite with Matterhorn views. The room was extremely stylish and sophisticated with a very functional layout. It was also immaculately clean, and housekeeping kept it like that every day. The room looked exactly as it appears on the hotel's own website.
The weather was such that we didn't get much of a Matterhorn view, but on the occasions we did, having chosen a Matterhorn room was well worth it.
Breakfast was really good with a lot of choice and by the end of our stay the nice waitress knew which coffees to bring without us asking. The hotel were also happy to prepare packed breakfasts so we could start our day early before breakfast was served.
The hotel didn't serve any
meals other than breakfast during our stay but were able to arrange good takeaways which meant we could enjoy our suite rather than go out.
Other things: The spa is excellent. Wifi very quick. Nespresso machine in the room. Hotel were able to supply a blackberry charger when ours broke.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
