The food is better than one would expect.
Far from the skilifts, but the skibus stops right outside the hotel.
It bothered me that having the second half of a red wine bottle the next day it was served at room temperature, maybe 23 degrees, each time. Otherwise restaurant service was excellent.
I loved our stay at Sunstar.
Good: simply perfect
Bad: The wellness and spa was a little bit too crowdy.
Friendly staff, good location
Good: The staff at reception were exceptional and very friendly even though we are foreigners who speak English. They also offered helpful info regarding directions and points of interest. Other places in Switzerland aren't as welcoming. Food and service at the restaurant was great too.
Bad: Value for money, it was too pricey so I felt you don't get your money's worth. Pool was a bit cold too.
Perfect Ski Hotel
I stayed at this Sunstar Property on a 3-day ski offer. This offered excellent value for money at a wonderfully located facility that provided a fantastic base to kick off the ski season.
The location is perfect. 5 mins from the center of town and if you are travelling by public transportation as I was, they will pick you up from the bus station- No problem.
The hotel is also 5 mins walk from the ski bus stop and no more than 10 minutes walk from the closest lift, if the buses are full, or if you want a good warm up in the am...
The staff were friendly, professional knowledgeable and multilingual, as is the case with almost all Swiss hotels, but this hotel offered a few "surprise and delight" features that makes it stand out.
Breakfast is expansive with a variety of hot and cold options and starts at 0730 so that you can catch the first chair...Dinner had wonderful variety (including for vegetarians) and was professionally prepared and presented- So nice to have options OTHER than the standard "Cheese Fondue"
The hotel has a fantastic wellness facility with sauna and swimming pool that is great to unwind after a long ski day, or if the weather is ugly....
The ski boot room is big, well lit, warm, with ample space to store your ski kit, a place to tune your edges if so inclined, an outlet to plug in your electric boot liners of bags and enough room for several people to put on their boots and grab skis without feeling as if you are on top of each other. 24hr Access is controlled with your room card and you can exit directly into the garage so no need to clomp through the hotel in ski boots- Nicely designed.
Ski rental locations are across the street in case you forget something and there is a small grocery store for essentials at 200m
The wifi signal is excellent and you can use up to 3 devices with the option to add I believe up to 5
The Minibar in the room is stocked with a variety of soft drinks that are complimentary- HUGE for after ski snacking and a unique feature of SunStar properties...
There is no single supplement- Ever....Which is RARE in Switzerland (or anywhere)
And of course the room was immaculately clean, well laid out with multiple outlets to plug un all your kit and a beautiful modern bathroom WITH a balcony- Impressive.
Sunstar offers a variety of "all-inclusive" ski packages with takes an already strong hotel product and adds a serious value proposition. Worth investigating!
Very nice hotel, friendly atmosphere and entertaining, there was a party with swiss typical music 🎶 at their bar, people dancing and drinking 🍻, I was impressed by the people's attitude of enjoyment.. 😉 Restaurant had good food and the breakfast had a good variety of food..
5* service from front desk, restaurant and housekeeping (the Handyman is super nice)
1* for the bed ( the wood at the end makes for a horrible night sleep if you're over 190cm)
1* for the shower... Hot cold hot cold hot cold
Excellent for cyclists
Good: The bike room, the sauna and relaxation room.
