Kettle: Not available.

Shower: Pretty good, accept to get in and out you had to play a game of Paper Fortune Teller with the door. The pressure and heat were sublime.

Bed: Joined singles, it’s one up from hotel Ibis budget.

Safe: Annoying, dysfunctional, eventually broke and the safe repair man was summoned.

Bar: Cocktails, lack of options, but not to worry. They served beer, and that’s all that mattered.

Restaurant: Quite nice, good lighting, atmosphere, Bond sat on the table behind us once and they showed me the picture to prove it. The service took awhile but I’ll award extra points for the beautiful silver-sheened mullet, rocked by the insouciant waiter.

Toilet paper: Drum roll please….. yes they pointed the toilet paper, bravo. But sadly the paper was a little abrasive on the ol’ passage.

Surrondings: You’re in the mountains and in the valley of Bondworld. I’d live in this hotel, happily. We shared a chalet with a family down the hall.. They had two rooms, adjacent to each other, parents in one room and three kids in the other. They left the doors open every night which unsettled me. Supposing I sleep walk with a mighty erection and wind up in a bed that I hadn’t paid for or procured. Imagine explaining that one away to either the missus or the police!

Breakfast: Concentrated orange juice. Looked promising because there was a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff, but not a lot of stuff I wanted to eat. I called it the SKY TV of breakfasts, a lot of channels with nothing on.

Sidenote: This hotel is amazing, owners are sweet as pie. If you’re thinking of going and want to see more of Murren check out our journey around James Bond World in Piz Gloria here.

      You’ll love it. Check out the movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service before you do. It’s like a motion picture brochure of Murren.
