Hotel Seehof, Arosa

Jo and I visited Graubünden (again) for our anniversary this year, and settled on the Hotel Seehof in Arosa. Just near the lower lake in the relatively remote alpine village – a half-hour drive along a very winding road up into the forests above Chur – the Seehof is a lovely mix between traditional elements and modern comfort. The original part of the building, part of which now serves as the unusual yet highly recommendable Spanish/Mexican restaurant, was the first hotel in the village, at which Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once stayed with friends at the end of the nineteenth century, whilst living in Davos.
