  57. 57. Comment: Old decor, sad dining room. Very slow service. Overpriced. Bad piano player. If you are over 60 you might like it. Otherwise keep positive and happy and go somewhere else. Thank god we only came for a dinner. If we had booked as a hotel I'd have thrown myself off the Matterhorn. Response: “…Of course, I'm considering "constructive" reviews and not "empty" subjective considerations which are not a help to improve. You use the expression "old decor". Well, it's quite strange. The dining room has been totally renewed in 2008…Maybe you confused vintage with old. What can you suggest to improve our "sad" dining room? And what do you mean with sad? - "If you are over 60 you might like it" you say. Well maybe the atmosphere is too relaxing for you, but why do you think young people wouldn't appreciate that? Of course if you were expecting a disco or a club our hotel was not the right place to choose. Normally people love Nicola, our pianist. So, I guess there is no way to improve in this case. "Very slow service". This is the only point we will be happy to improve. Thank you. Example of crisis management to be improved
