Overview

Hotel Bernina 1865 occupies a historic building in the town of Samedan in the Engadin valley. The hotel is around 10-15 minutes' drive from "impeccably glamorous" (The Daily Telegraph) St Moritz, the oldest and most famous ski resort in the Swiss Alps.

There is a free shuttle bus from the hotel to Celerina ski lift, for access to the Corviglia/Piz Nair ski area. The Corvatsch ski area is accessible via the Surlej LSC ski lift, approximately 20 minutes' drive or 35 minutes by bus (the nearest bus stop is two minutes' walk from the hotel). Samedan is around 20 minutes by train from St Moritz Lake, where you can windsurf in the summer or snow kite in the winter.

In summer, you can hike up Muottas Muragl -- which is 20 minutes by bus from Samedan -- for views over the valley. There is also a funicular up the 700-metre peak from Punt Muragl station. For shopping, Via Serlas in St Moritz is brimming with designer boutiques and is around 20 minutes away by bus.

Rooms at the hotel are traditional in style, with parquet floors and wooden furniture. Each room has views of the Bernina mountains.

The hotel has three restaurants: the Stube at Bernina 1865 serves traditional Engadin cuisine, The Imperial Restaurant provides a fine-dining option, and also serves breakfast daily between 7:30-10am, and Restaurant 1865 serves pizza and pasta dishes.

Guests get free access to the spa -- facilities include a sauna, a Turkish bath and an experience shower. Wi-Fi and parking are free.
