    When I booked the room I requested a room with view to the Cervino Mountain which I did not get. It was not a big deal as during the time I was there the weather was not clear and we could not see the mountains from anywhere.

    The junior suite was perfect. Upgraded bathrooms with a separate sink room, and even a small kitchen area! Our view over the courtyard and of the Matterhorn was spectacular. Breakfast was nice and the staff was always helpful and friendly!

    The service was great and the buffet breakfast was very good (had real espresso and scrambled eggs and champagne to make mimosas as well as the usual fare). We booked a regular double room, and when we got to our room (402) we saw that we had a balcony with an amazing view of the Matterhorn. The rooms were spacious and nice. The service was amazing. The front desk was really helpful in helping us find a good hike and on the day we left, one of the guys at breakfast drove us to the train station really early. (the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station)

    I'm being picky here, but the shower water was mixed together from 2 controls, 1 hot knob and 1 cold, and it comes out of the shower head not completely mixed. Also the beds are standard European (2 double beds out together) instead of a single large bed).

    Nice informal friendly B+B hotel with excellent spa and pool. South facing rooms with views of Matterhorn. Good breakfast. Good location.

    Superb

    Friendly staff and well kept Suisse style hotel. The sauna and pool facilities are very good too.

    The ski bus stop is not too close (maybe 200m) and then down some steps. I recommend leaving your skis locked up near the funi for 2chf per night to save carriage both ways.
