Couple fined CHF 500 for bringing own champagne to hotel
A hotel attempted to fine a couple CHF 500 for bringing their own champagne into the room.
The hotel manager says that’s against the rules.
The Fleurs de Zermatt four-star hotel issued the fine after the couple asked for an ice bucket – but not champagne.
The couple refused to pay and the hotel called the police. The local prosecutor immediately dismissed the case, saying no crime was committed.
The hotel says it will rewrite the rules to make them more legally binding.
