“Stayed Jan 2014”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

If you visited this Hotel in or prior to the 2012 ski season then you need to know that it has changed ownership. The beautiful wood interior has now been painted brown grey or black and could not be more incongruous with it's Alpine setting. We arrived with the intent of enjoying the demi-pension arrangement and indulging in the four course menu choices with amazing cheese and dessert selection as in previous years. All gone! You are now told you will eat the one appetiser, main and desert offered or leave the restaurant. We chose the latter and went on to the Fondue restaurant to discover that the demi-pension menu does not actually offer a fondue. I stay in five or six luxury hotels a month in my profession and I am not aware of one that claims to be four star status with such a poor service. Prisoners in the UK get better choice than this and do not have their cells painted dark brown. Also be aware that having paid your deposit the new company will take the balance of the payment from your credit card 14 days prior to you arriving without warning or receipt under the guise of "making it easier for you".
