Our favourite rooms
The warmest room in the house has got to be 103, where you’ll find the only private sauna and a wood-burning stove by the bed. 104 has a sun-filled terrace with underfloor heating and magic mountain views. Families should ask for 105 and 106, which can interconnect.
There’s a heated pool in the spa.
The usual snowy suspects: moon boots, woolly hats and snow chains for your wagon.
Pets are allowed for €20 a day. There’s a smoking room in the main lounge area.
Cots for under-twos cost €30 a day, and extra beds for older children can be arranged (price depends on age, well, size). The hotel can put guests in touch with a local nanny.
