A very classic Alpine hotel, with a new addition. The new addition has the spa and some excellently fitted out rooms. The classic part has the bars, restaurants, and ... bowling alley. Service is excellent and the food very good, everything from classic mountain Swiss cuisine, to modern interpretive cuisine.

I guess the best way to highlight our opinion, is that we have booked again for next year.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights as a base for skiing and snow shoe walking in the Toggenburg area. We didn't know what to expect from the hotel, but were really pleased with our choice.

First of all, it's a lot bigger than I was expecting. It's got four storeys, and the large reception area tells you this isn't a run of the mill small-town hotel. Our room was what I can only describe as huge! I'd guess the distance from the one wall to the end of the en-suite bathroom to be perhaps 15m or so. So obviously there was no shortage of space, and penty of wardrobes and drawers for our clothes. In the bathroom there was a wide, deep bath. I can personally confirm it's big enough for two!

Breakfasts were the usual high-quality Swiss kind. Bechermuesli, cheeses, various breads, dried meats, that type of thing. Personally, I love it. Using the excuse of the hard day on the mountains to come, I always made the most of what was on offer.

A touch I really liked was that the same table had a nicely printed name card for us throughout our stay - both for breakfast and dinner. This meant we could head straight there each time and not have to hang around to be seated. Evening meals were four courses each time. We'd booked in for the halbpension deal, so took their recommendation each night. And pretty good it was too! If I'd ordered the same from the menu I'd have been really satisfied. The desserts deserve special mention, not just for the taste, but for the very sophisticated presentation. The dining room ambience was natural and relaxing; lots of wood, dark colours and an open fire in the evenings.

Ski facilities were fine. The hotel's about a 10-20 minute walk from the nearest chair lift. But the better option is to take the free ski shuttle bus that stops right outside the hotel every 15 minutes. Similarly, returning from the pistes in the afternoon was equally simple. There's a heated ski room for storing skis and boots, and that makes all the difference when heading out in the morning.

Part of our room booking included a 30 minute massage for me and my wife, and then an hour's scented bath for the two of us together. I'm not normally a big massage fan, but seeing as it was included I went for it. Actually, it was pretty good! Neck, shoulders and back. And then afterwards into the jacuzzi bath with my wife. The finishing touch was the masseur returning ten minutes later to hand us a glass of fizzy each. We'll certainly not forget that for a while.

I was impressed by this hotel and have recommended it to my friends. The Toggenburg ski area is good fun, and far less crowded than Flumserberg. I will definitely stay in the Hirschen again, perhaps even this summer for a weekend of mountain walking.

Basic hotel but pretty tidy overall and with nice Swiss ambiance. The refurbished rooms in the detached building were modern, open plan bathroom (!) and with firm beds.

Supermarket is next door. Small club/bar The Bank 500mtrs away and apres ski is minimal with an umbrella bar at the bottom of the slopes.

Slopes are a 5 minute walk away. It's a nice smaller ski area with various runs, some through the trees and a snowpark with some kickers and sliders. The connection to next area has some long flat runs bit is still manageable in good conditions. Perfect for a 3 day break for instance.
