“Charming but Modest Inn”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

After a hike from Chateux D'Oex, we were delighted to arrive at the Hotel du Chamois in the lovely village of L'Etivaz. We had two comfortable rooms - one for four children and the other for my wife and myself. Both were clean and ours had a new bathroom with good water pressure. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was very good - appetites no doubt influenced by the long walk. Recommend staying here for those who are looking for an uncomplicated and friendly inn.

Spent 1 night as part of a longer hiking trek in the Swiss alps. Biggest plus is the excellent service. Very friendly, attentive and helpful. Rooms are cozy, have a nice atmosphre and are spottlessly clean (though, for single rooms, the shower is communal, but also very clean) overall, good vibe in a nice Swiss mountan village, definitively off the beaten track.

This is a little gem hidden in the L'Etivaz valley. The rooms are large and comfortable. By no means a modern hotel, so if you equate comfort and quality with 'modern' decor, this place isn't for you. We came up for a weekend of cross-country skiing with friends in Les Mosses, a mere 5-10 minute drive away from the ski area (downhill & cross country), but didn't want to stay in the middle of the crowd. We originally booked for just a Saturday night, but we liked the hotel and the ski trails so much we chose to extend our stay for another night. Unfortunately, we had to eat dinner with our friends at a restaurant in Les Mosses that didn't impress us (okay, we had fondue, and it was a decent fondue—probably because they used the Etivaz cheese that the valley is renown for—but the atmosphere was by no means relaxing), but on Sunday evening we corrected that oversight and ate at the restaurant in the Hotel du Chamois. The trout dishes were outstanding, and other diners appeared to be relishing their meat dishes. Definitely save room for the ice creams that they make themselves—they are far-and-away superior to anything you can buy in a store!

I stayed in this hotel with my partner and some friends following a hike from Gstaad to L'Etivaz. We were very pleased with the large, comfortable rooms which were typically Swiss in style. Dark wooden furniture, creaking floor boards and low ceilings gave the place a cozy, homely atmosphere.

We chose to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant and weren't disappointed with our delicious meals. Beef, duck and chicken all cooked to perfection, and some delicious desserts to complete the meal. Breakfast was good, although the selection of food was a bit limited.

The best part of our stay by far was the exceptional service that we received from the manageress. Due to bad weather, we decided to cancel the second day of our hike, but we were still keen to reach our planned accommodation for the next night. Being such a small town, public transport was limited, so the manageress called the local bus driver on our behalf to request that he alter his route slightly in order to get us to the necessary train station. In addition to this, she also asked him to pre-purchase our train tickets so that we would not risk missing the train. We found this service to be extremely kind and quite unexpected, and it allowed us to maintain most of our plans for the following day.
