We have joined the long list of people from different countries who come here year after year and are treated as near family by the charming owners, Michael and Carole. Although we normally prefer rustic food to the posh stuff, we make a happy exception for Michael's sophisticated cooking in the upstairs "gourmet" restaurant. It is light, satisfying and extremely good, with a menu that never seems to repeat. Downstairs there is an informal Pizza/Rotisserie restaurant which we have not got round to trying, as the gourmet meals come included in the very good value, half-board ski packages, but the food there comes from the same kitchen. Also downstairs is Sammy's, the bar run by the inimitable Martin. On other fronts the hotel is great - the south facing rooms we have stayed in are lovely - very large, with sofas, balconies, great views and big baths. There is safe underground parking which is useful for a car or motorbike packed with kit, and I have stopped in the summer when touring (nothing really beats breakfast on the Alpenrose terrace followed by a bike ride into the mountains). I wouldn't think of trying anywhere else in the area
