The hotel was ideally situated for our visit. The staff were friendly and indulgent of our attempts to communicate en francais, although we had to resort to English for more complex exchanges as our French is so poor.
The hotel has an adjacent bar with friendly staff and what appeared to be a roster of local regulars.
Wine is poured in Switzerland in smaller measures than we are used to drinking; instead of buying wine by the glass (1dl), ask for a 5dl jug in order to get a decent UK-style glassful and a top-up.
The breakfast buffet open until 10.00. While the optional breakfast seems quite pricy, there is scope to fill up on cereal, bread, ham, cheese, yoghurt and fruit (both fresh and tinned fruit salad).
We didn't use the radio or television, but found the wifi adequate to stream BBC radio through a mobile phone.
The hot water supply in the bathroom was very good -- the water was very hot, and there seemed to be plenty of it (it didn't run cold) -- and the water pressure through the shower head was also very good.
Additional toiletries (mini bars of soap, sachets of shampoo, etc) are available from reception "on request", and they also offer shaving equipment and toothpaste, but we didn't ask for these or for any extras.
We had a ground-floor room. The window had a net curtain, but no thicker or heavier curtains. There was, however, a metal shutter that could be wound down like the security shutter on a shop front.
The room had a little basket containing a couple of sachets of instant coffee and some teabags and herbal infusion bags. There was no kettle, however. A note directed guests to use a water dispenser in the corridor which turned out to be the hot drinks dispenser in the breakfast area (some persistence was required to find the "on" switch).
The bathroom extractor wasn't working. Despite reporting this the day after arrival, it wasn't repaired during our stay.
