    Charming, comfy, and nice

    Samoens is so beautiful and being centrally located but serene and inviting made this place an ideal spot to stay. The staff are friendly and everything is nice and clean.

  • 6.0.Good

    Tiny bath. Otherwise nice, but has the feel of being somewhere for several people to sleep, rather than a room to enjoy. Decent sized balconies though. And jacuzzi was fun. Friendly hosts.

    Fine

    Wanted to stay in Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, and this hotel came up in the search. It's in the next town down the hill. A cute town, probably better for most tourists. Ate outside the hotel, many places available.

    Decent hotel close to town and the slopes.

    Decent place near all the facilities but I felt it was a bit pricey for what you get. Maybe that's just the exchange rate but 13.5e for breakfast is a bit strong and the pool and jacuzzi is outside with no proper changing facilities so that was a real disappointment after a days skiing. Run by lovely couple who did everything they could to make us feel welcome.

    Great hotel with excellent facilities.

    The hotel suites were a good size. They were stylish and kept very clean. Good selection of food at breakfast and dinner. The children loved the swimming pool. Bus stop to the cable car immediately opposite hotel so ideal location. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a lovely bar area, games room and with activities and toys for all ages. Great hotel!

    Very good hotel close to the village centre.

    Very good location for the village. The ski bus stop is also opposite the hotel. Facilities are very good and the hotel owners and staff very attentive. We would definitely stay at the hotel again.
