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

    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.
