Notes from our Igluski Experts

"Saas Fee is the perfect family resort. It is a lovely village with no cars so it’s important you are close to the skiing. You can’t get much closer than the Ambassador. After crossing the road from the chalet hotel, walk past the play area for kids and you’re on the chairlift. The ski hire shop is about a two minute walk away and going out in the evening could not be easier, with everything is within walking distance. The bar area is huge with a lovely fireplace there is a good sized swimming pool. The food is generous, with five courses for dinner! It’s exactly what you need after a hard day of skiing. If you’re in Saas Fee you will want to go up to the revolving restaurant on the top of the bubble lift. It revolves around providing a phenomenal 360 degrees view of the mountains. "

Chalet Hotel Ambassador - Saas Fee, Switzerland

The Chalet Hotel Ambassador has established itself as a firm favourite amongst our guests, with its unbeatable mix of the absolute prime location in the whole resort of Saas-Fee. Comfortable bedrooms and public areas, and our popular Chalet Hotel catering and service. Our friendly and professional team of staff look forward to welcoming you to and to the Chalet Hotel Ambassador this winter.

The Chalet Hotel Ambassador is just across the traffic-free street from the foot of the main slopes. This means you can ski back virtually to the door in normal conditions, and it is equally easy to access the main high-speed lifts at the start of the day, with the three key main lifts all within approximately 3 minutes' walk. From the après ski point of view, Saas Fee's main high street starts just across the bridge a minute’s walk away, with the inviting bars, cafés and shops of the delightful village centre all conveniently close at hand. Our partner ski-hire shop is also just a couple of minutes' stroll from the Chalet Hotel Ambassador.

The Hotel Ambassador could not be better placed for access to all parts of Saas Fee's superb ski area. The Spielboden and Plattjen gondolas are only approximately 2 minutes walk away (150m), and the Alpin Express to access the Felskinn area approximately 3 minutes walk (300m). Alternatively, just 270m away across the base area of the slopes is the short drag-lift which connects to the second Felskinn cable-car, which goes in one single stage straight up to 3,000m. Runs from all sides bring you back home to just across the street from the Ambassador itself. Beginners or families with children also have the beginners' area just 3 minutes' walk away across the bridge, with its three drag-lifts providing a choice of blue runs in an ideal area for learning.

Apart from its ideal location, the Chalet Hotel Ambassador has still more to recommend it, with the heated indoor swimming-pool, sauna and whirlpool spa-bath providing the perfect way to relax tired skiing muscles after a long day on the slopes. The comfortable lounge was refurbished last year and offers a welcoming area for afternoon tea on your return from skiing, and together with the bar, also provides for a relaxing drink before or after dinner. The spacious bedrooms all have twin beds and a single sofa-bed (1.8m long) suitable for a child under 12. Many bedrooms will also take a fourth folding bed if required. All are attractively furnished in traditional style, with en suite bathrooms, a TV and mini-fridge, and a balcony or terrace to enjoy the sunshine and spectacular views of the Saas Fee vallley.

Saas Fee's traffic-free village centre is a major bonus, enabling you to enjoy the charm of the resort completely free of the noise, congestion and pollution of normal traffic, and only the unique 'elektro-taxis' (a little like glorified milk-floats!) hum quietly around the village streets. Coaches are also clearly not allowed into the centre, so on your arrival from the airport, you will be met off the coach by our Saas Fee team at the main entrance to the village. From here it is a gentle ten-minute walk along the picturesque main street to the Chalet Hotel Ambassador, enabling our team to point out useful village amenities and favourite après ski venues en route, whilst all your luggage is transported for you directly to the Chalet Hotel Ambassador's welcoming reception.

Meals - Chalet Hotel Ambassador, Saas Fee

For six days of the week the staff prepares all your meals.

Breakfast:
We pride ourselves on giving you a great breakfast to start your day, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts, plentiful English tea and good filter coffee, bread freshly baked in our chalets each morning (plus croissants in France), cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs.

This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. And to cap it all, we also cook a hot dish of the day for you six days per week, such as sausage and bacon or pancakes with fresh fruit, individually served.

On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will prepare a Continental style breakfast for you, which will be left for you to help yourselves, and that evening you have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants – our resort team will be happy to provide some suggestions. In our Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast (including hot option) is also served on the staff’s day off.

Piste Picnics:
Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea:
The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea:
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels:
New for 2013/14 Season
- Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels:
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
