Our family group of five, including three adults and two preteens, stayed in a family room and a single room at the Hotel Walther for two nights in June 2013. We all enjoyed the many wonderful features of this great hotel and the warm welcome from its staff.
After a day of train travel it was quite a treat to be met at the station, have our bags magically appear in our rooms, and be greeted so warmly (I think this is the only time I've ever been welcomed personally by the owner). When making the reservation I had wondered if the hotel would be too expensive or too fancy for us, and the answer to both questions turned out to be "no." Our rooms were elegant but comfortable. The swimming pool was beautiful and well designed to serve both adults and children well, the playroom was amazing, there were bikes to borrow, the Wifi was really good, there was an afternoon "cake bar" to enjoy, the breakfast buffet was outstanding, the hiking guide was personable and knowledgable, and we had free bus, rail, and cable car transportation in the valley during our stay. All of this was included in the price of our rooms in a five star hotel in a fabulous location, so we felt we had gotten quite a lot for our money.
In addition, we had dinner in the dining room one night, and oh, what a dinner it was! So delicious; the best of our trip, I thought. Although the adults had eaten at high quality restaurants, our children hadn't, and it was a different experience for them, especially for the one "picky eater." But the waiter nicely put them at ease and we had a very pleasant dinner. With wine we paid $250 which was a very fair price for such a memorable evening for five people.
In talking over the trip to Italy and Switzerland on the way home, everyone agreed that our time in Pontresina was too short and that we'd love to return to the Hotel Walter again.
