Possibly the best stay we had on the Haute Route. An easy day meant we arrived by 1 o'clock and were given a room with bunks for four. We had it to ourselves, so were able to wash a few things and hang them in the window without disturbing anyone else. The room was spacious, with a large wardrobe and... More

The accommodation was good, it was beginning of the hiking season, so there were few people. The staff was extremely friendly, and the dinner was amazing :) Highly recommended!

We stayed here while walking from Chamonix to Zermatt. The food was excellent and we slept in a 4 bedded room which we had to ourselves. It was half board with a set meal and easily the best value for money we had anywhere in Switzerland

This is a nice restaurant in an extraordinary place, one of the most beautiful villages in the Alps. I had an excellent entrecote with a delicious mushroom sauce, vegetables and fried potatoes, everything was delicious, the service very friendly and effective, in a very nice atmosphere. highly recommendable to everyone, in couple, family or solo.
