Modern, comfortable, everything in perfect working order
Our group of 4 adults and 3 children stayed one week at the end of February. The chalet is very spacious, has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and all utilities one can possibly need for a holiday. Everything was modern, fully functional and clean. The ski room also had heaters for the ski boots. There is a bit of a walk to the city center and the ski lifts, but the bus stops about 50 meters from the chalet.
Great Chalet, Fantastic Vacation
We were concerned about past reviews, but the chalet was in excellent condition and the new management company is great - extremely responsive and helpful with everything we asked of them. The chalet itself is very comfortable and well equipped, views in every direction, and lots of sun, even when the rest of Saas Fee is in the shadows. Easy taxi ride into town or lifts. Mountains are spectacular and Saas Fee itself is a beautiful little town.
Five star home in three star shape
Chalet Uhu in Saas Fee is a beautiful, luxurious house in modern alpine style but needs much better upkeep. The average side table has a loose leg, one of the sofa chairs has ripped covers. Many sinks and showers (which are of high quality to start with), drain poorly. The completely clogged master shower was fixed after we requested it. The kitchen utensil supply is sparse. A prior reviewer had mentioned dull knives. I requested the knives to be sharpened prior to our arrival which did not happen.
The service provided by Alpine Retreats (the local rental agency) is nearly non existent. They offer to arrange for a taxi which can be more conveniently accomplished without their help, as you don't have to give the local taxi outfit a one day notice.
In Saas Fee every rental gets provided a Buergerpass which is a discount card and proof of payment for the lodging tax. Usually it is handed to the guest upon arrival. We had to call Alpine Retreats and retrieve it at their office.
We stayed for two weeks and had the experience with prior rentals that someone would come and change the sheets after the first week. Not so with chalet Uhu and alpine retreats.
This chalet requires professional management and can easily be brought up to five star standards with a little preventative maintenance and effort. We
I am very sorry that Chalet Uhu did not live up to your expectations and am embarrassed and disappointed by the service you received during your stay. I have used the current management company for several seasons prior to this and have always found them to be thoughtful and responsive. It is clear that their service recently has fallen well below the standards I would expect for my guests. I am surprised (and a bit shocked) that you did not receive a linen change during your stay – this really is basic stuff. They have had a management restructure since your visit and assure me that their service is back to its previous level. The drainage has now been fixed and the kitchen is being restocked. I am confident that if you returned you would find the standard of service to be as it should for a chalet like Uhu. I understand of course that this doesn’t make it better for you and as a gesture of goodwill I shall make a part refund of your rental by way of apology and to acknowledge the poor service you received. I hope this makes a difference and demonstrates how seriously I take your comments.
Schönes Chalet mit gut eingerichteter Küche. Betreuung durch Royalalpine Team sehr gut.
Ich kann das Chalet sehr empfehlen
Great chalet, great resort!
Thanks a lot for giving unforgettable memorIes to my family. We enjoyed your place so much it was difficult to leave it. Even if a little bit away from the center, having got used very quickly to the bus plan, it was not an issue at all. Very well equipped, very bright, we all loved it.
Der Aufenthalt in diesem schönen und geräumigen Châlet war wirklich top, was wir bei diesem hohen Mietpreis auch erwartet hatten. Neben vielen positiven Aspekten wie z.B. dem ausreichend verfügbaren Brennholz für's Cheminée u.v.m. gab es aber auch zwei, drei Negativpunkte: Das Bett in einem Doppelzimmer war kaputt, was den Verwalter herzlich wenig gekümmert hat. Scharfe Messer gibts in der Küche auch keine. Aber eben: Jammern auf hohem Niveau!
Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung Beni. Ich bin froh, dass Sie hatten eine tolle Zeit und genossen Ihren Aufenthalt in unserem Chalet. Es tut mir leid, dass Sie ein Problem mit einem der Betten hatten. Es war in Ordnung zu Beginn der Saison, aber ich werde dafür sorgen, dass es so schnell wie möglich behoben wird. Wir haben Messerschärfer in der Küche, aber ich werde die Messer für die nächsten Gäste schärfen - auf eine Art Weise natürlich! Danke noch einmal. Alun
Saas-Fee boasts all year round skiing thanks to its glacier on the higher slopes which virtually guarantees skiing in the winter months. Other winter activities include cross-country skiing, tobogganing (on a ski-free mountain), winter walking routes, curling and ice hockey. In summer the main activity is hiking with dozens of walks for all abilities ranging from high-level alpine treks to short loops around the village, the charming 'chapel' walk and hikes through the forest (2 minutes from Chalet Uhu). There is also mountain-biking, scooter hire for descending the toboggan mountain, an adventure zip-wire course (for kids and adults), mini-golf, a roller coaster and tennis. The chalet is a few minutes' walk to an excellent baker (ideal for fresh bread and croissants in the morning) and is an easy 10 minute walk to the village centre - with shops, supermarkets, ski hire, ski lessons, banks, pharmacy, medical centre etc.
