We had no idea how far out of town this place is when we booked it. We were traveling by train, so were at the mercy of the hotel's shuttle service. Therefore, its one ride into Ponttresina in the morning and one back in the evening, and the manager specified what times those were.
We were at the hunting season, and there were hunters, obiviously friends or loyal customers, staying here and they were the only ones who recieved much attention. When we asked to eat the same snack the hunters had had the night before, we were told that was only special for them. This more-like-a-resort setting and run hotel, sits in absoutley beautiful setting. They apparently are known for the horse drawn covered wagons, which had we known, due to allergies, we would not have stayed here (smells).While the whole place is cutely decorated, and who ever did the decorating should be proud, the facilites are simple (no phone, clock in rooms). Due to smell outside of horses, we could not open our window. We had booked a room with our traveling companions to share a bathroom with only them, but when we got there was told bathroom was for entire floor. Asked to move and had to pay 20euros more per night each room but private bath was needed, again didn't want to share with the hunters. The food was good but not very flexible with their choices. Breakfast included and it was standard Europe fare. We didn't get to see the much toted dessert bar as it wasn't up during our stay. All in all, IF you have a car, it might be a great place but otherwise, the service in such a remote area makes one feel rather captive.
