We first stayed at Hotel Erika four years ago when our children were 10 and 11. They declared it to be the best hotel ever so it was with some trepidation that we went back with them as teenagers - would it live up to expectations? I am happy to say that it did.
This is a family run hotel and has been owned by the same family for many decades. This gives it a very special and slightly quirky charm. It is a hotel with great personality and for that I readily forgive it a few oddities. The owners are very hands on and quite delightful, they have put together a well trained and very professional staff who make it a pleasure to stay here.
The buildings have been extended in different directions over the years which gives the hotel a rather eccentric layout. The family rooms we have stayed in are not huge but perfectly adequate, with sliding doors separating the main bedroom from the living room with its fold out beds. There is one good sized bathroom with a separate toilet.
The indoor swimming pool is adored by children as it is a good size and has a water slide. It is also open 24 hours.
The great success on both visits has been the food. The hotel does half board and it is to be highly recommended. There is also a substantial afternoon tea offered in the conservatory. The breakfasts and dinners are superb. Some of the food is buffet but it has been done with great care and thought and is of a very high standard.
The hotel is on the edge of town, about a five minute walk to the main shoping area. We were on a skiing holiday and chose to walk to the gondola where our skis were stored which took us about 15 mins, although the hotel does offer a complimentary taxi service to the gondola.
The only quibble we had was the lack of wireless internet. The hotel has only one basic coin operated computer which is in the bar. This is no good for booking onward travel!
But all in all we loved Hotel Erika and can't wait to go back.
