I absolutely love the secluded location and outstanding views of the Matterhorn. What really lifts this hotel above and beyond are the staff and how welcoming, warm, and hilarious they all are. They really do make this place a cherished memory indeed. Also the food is amazing! High quality and lots of choice. Breakfast is also delicious with bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage, porridge, unlimited hot drinks. All included in the price
