Beautiful location and child friendly. The cresche staff were wonderful and spoke at least 4 languages between them. This service is free to guests and they also provide lunch for the children free. Our suite was very clean, had a large balcony with views over the town and mountains. The bathroom was the biggest we have ever had with a huge bath that was easily twice the size of a normal bath, very happy with this. Big enough for my 4 year old to swim in! The towels are small and thin and yellow, so my advice is to take your own! The breakfast not special, and the younger waiting staff not keen to get eggs toast tea etc. The older waiting staff were excellent and hard working. Its a continental breakfast and the meat was turning and the cheese was a bit too old, there was'nt enough bread, there were 2 bowls of yoghurt which wasnt very nice and the milk smelt sour. This was why I insisted on having boiled eggs and toast every morning. My husband is a proud Swiss and he was determined to prove me wrong about the meat being "off" at breakfast so I dared him to eat some, he did and had "delhi belly" all day!!!! This actually put us off eating in the restaurant which we only did once. Dont let this put you off going there as this is a lovely clean mainly friendly hotel which has an excellent cresche and plenty local places to eat nearby with quicker service etc. It also has an very nice indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and a small gym. It is in a prime location in this pretty little town with amazing views and wonderful walks. This hotel owns an Italian Restaurant next stoor, and thankfully the food and the service there is very good, we also ate at several of the local restaurants all withing walking distance. There is lots of free local parking near this hotel and the shops. Despite the breakfast not being good we enjoyed our eggs and toast and took delight in our suite and wonderful views. We were suprised that you were not allowed to smoke on the balcony, we wouldnt dream of smoking in a hotel room and certainly not in a bedroom etc, but on a balcony is the norm in every hotel that we've ever stayed at. So because of this we wouldnt go back there again. This is unusual for Switzerland where you can smoke in all of the restaurants and people take their dogs and cats out to dinner most nights! My husband tried on several occasions to get some service in the hotel alfresco bar at night, but the young waitress seemed only interested in serving a group of lads, so several patrons walked out and went to the bar just over the road where all customers welcome. The manager of this hotel is a dedicated hard working woman and I know she would be furious at the experience of guests at breakfast and in the bar by the young girls who were supposed to be working there.
