Kid-friendly hotel for Christmas break in Switzerland


I live in Geneva with my husband and two-year old son and we are looking for somewhere to spend three nights in Switzerland this Christmas (24 - 27 Dec).

Here's a list of what we're looking for:
1. Somewhere picturesque (small town, mountains, snow...that kind of thing!) within about a three-hour train trip of Geneva.
2. A hotel that offers facilities for kids (pool, play area, etc.).
3. Mid-range price. We would like to splash out (it's all relative, I know), but unfortunately at Christmas in Switzerland that probably still means mid-range for us (approx 200 Euro / night, maybe a bit more).

I think that just about sums up what we're looking for. We have already visited Interlaken and Zermatt, so we're looking for somewhere new. Some towns I have seen that I thought might be suitable are Villars-sur-Ollon and Grindlewald.

Our second baby is due in the early new year (all going well), so we'd really like to organise a special Christmas for our last one as a family of three.

If anyone has any recommendations or ideas I would be very grateful!

In Lauterbrunnen:

Picturesque small town hotel in the beautiful Berner Oberland region, mountains galore, indoor pool, play area, train access, and in your price range. Oh, and snow too!

Happy travels!
