Best ski-ing holiday ever?... 01/04/2014
Taking everything into account, our recent week in Saas Fee (March 2014) could well have been just that. The resort has chocolate-box charm - especially at the farther end of the main street, where the Chalet Hotel Ambassador is located. Some lovely old wooden Swiss buildings mixed in with more modern houses and hotels. Plenty of sports shops (albeit too expensive for us), 2 or 3 supermarkets and enough bars to satisfy any keen apres-skier the Black Bull and Zur Muhle are especially lively and just a few steps from the hotel. The Chalet Hotel Ambassador was, well, just superb. The rooms may be a bit dated, but are clean, comfortable, spacious, warm and all seem to have fabulous mountain views, whether to the front or rear. The bar/lounge area downstairs has been smartened up recently and is very comfortable with a lovely log fire that was blazing away on our arrival. Above all, the staff (and resort rep, Nick), although young British seasonaires, were all excellent - polite but friendly, efficient and hard working. They are a credit to Sarah, the manager, and to Ski Total. The other great thing about the Ambassador is its location: 3-5 minutes walk to the two main gondola stations, at the prettier end of the village, close to the shops/bars - and you can ski back to the other side of the street from the hotel! Throw in a swimming pool and sauna (which we had to ourselves every night!) and ski accommodation doesn't get much better than this. Finally, we have to say something about the ski area. Whilst not huge, there is plenty for a keen intermediate for a week and, because of the altitude, the snow was excellent (even in late March with sunshine every day - many resorts would have had slush). The surrounding mountains (some of the highest in the Alps) are spectacular: make sure sure you spend a day skiing above Saas Grund on the other side of the valley for the best views of the mountains above Saas Fee - simply awesome! Last of all, we just want to mention Nathan (Muggeridge) at Igluski, who helped us book this holiday and patiently sorted out one small issue for us before we arrived in resort. He was an absolute gem and we can't thank him enough.

Excellent holiday at this hotel March 2013 Saas Fee. 24/03/2013
A well situated small hotel only 100 yards from the slopes. There was no queuing at all at the lifts and the pistes were uncrowded. The attentive, polite staff and the superb food made it one of the best skiing holidays our group of eight has enjoyed. The positive comments by others in TripAdvisor were all true.

Review 03/09/2008
We went as a group to this chalet and it worked really well for us. The location was fantastic as you couldn't get much closer to the slopes in Saas Fee than this. The pool was also a bonus as were the chalet hosts. Definitely return
