Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

We stayed for a long weekend. The staff anticipates any need and never ceases to impress. The room was amazing, the views were wonderful, the spa is gorgeous. The food is delicious, we loved the outside terrace. The newly renovated public spaces are whimsical and comfortable. The staff always greets you by name and makes you feel that you belong. We cannot wait to return!

An amazing hotel, in an very beautiful city. All the staff was really friendly and helpfull and the room was huge, with a lot of space. There were only 2 drawbacks: first is that rooms don't have air conditioning, which is fair given it is a mountain hotel and most of time the time is freezing. But as I was there during hot summer days, it was an incovenient. Second is that my booking had dinner included every night, but it was on those tiny letters under booking conditions, and no one at the hotel ever told me that, even when I checked-in.

Dear Guilherme8686,

Thank you for your high rating, and of course for your feedback.

I am terribly sorry to hear that you were not aware of the half-board nature of your booking. I will ensure to let the team know to avoid this in the future. In winter this is obligatory, and in the summer it is optional; we are fortunate that many choose this option as this is served from our Michelin rated restaurant, but we will ensure that all guests are aware in the future.

As a 102 year old building, air-conditioning is certainly a challenge however due to the large walls and infrastructure, this does mean inconvenience only for a few days a year. As you say, we do have the cool mountain breeze at night, and as we are central to the valley this often drafts through the room. We do also try and reduce emissions accordingly, and so have thus far decided upon restraining from air-conditioning; we do however thoroughly understand your observation.

We hope nonetheless we shall have the pleasure of welcoming you back here in the near future.

In the meantime we wish you all the best,

Kind regards,

Daniel

We live in the area and love to go for lunch or dinners, for business or just real pleasure, but yes, now beeing under new swiss ownership and management, we are very happy to say...the Grand Bellevue is really grand. Everyone working is saying hello, can i help you, or...have a nice day, enjoy your stay...well you know...the words you are used to hear, when you are in a great hotel around asia, austria or maldives...but here in Switzerland, its not so common, unfortunatly. Anyways, the completly renewed entertainment area (Reception, Bar, Lounge, Restaurant) are very well done (its always a matter of taste) and the new food offer in the restaurant finally very appealing, when you read the menu, you like to eat everything on the same time...uiuiuiuiui. The 'chariot de dessert ' at lunch time offers a big variety of little desserts, you can mix them well if you want, but its just the right size for a nice lunch dessert....and not these deserts for 18 to 38 fr, which fill you more than all the previous dishes you ate before. The wine list is fantastic and reasobably priced of a resort restaurant, and i hope it stays like that. Bravo to the new Bellevue team, to have achieved in such a short time, such a great service to their clients. We will be back very soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, and will be even transformed within the next months...the higher up, the better...

Dear Thierry F,

This response and gracious thanks to your review should have come sooner than today, my apologies; however as you say, we have executed the full renovation under a remarkably tight schedule, and time as such was limited.

Thank you so much for your continued support of the hotel, and for the kind words shared here on TripAdvisor.

We look very much forwards to your next trip and wish you all the best,

Daniel

First stay in this hotel. Everything was perfect from the room to the service. The hotel staff was always very helpful and very professional. I do not recall seeing such high standards in an hotel in Switzerland since years. I can only recommend this hotel in Gstaad.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 602. Room has a very nice and a big terrace.

We already had a great stay here a few years ago. The main floor of the hotel has been transformed (bar, restaurant, lobby) those last months and now look even better than before. We were very satisfied with the service. The setting is perfect as it is very close to the village but in the middle of a lush garden. The spa is unbeatable with a lot of different steam rooms and sauna.
Food was incredible at the restaurant, service was not perfect but it was their second evening after re-opening so I guess I don't mind.
Go there you won't regret it

Dear joo357,

I am highly embarrassed at replying to your wonderfully kind review two years late! I am so sorry for the belated response, however I must have overseen your note by accident, and only just realized!

It was most kind of you to make a review, as well as your understanding of the small challenges that can occur only a few days after opening. I am delighted that nonetheless you had a wonderful stay. I am pleased to say that our staff is now in fabulous condition, and I hope we have the opportunity to show you how the hotel has even further improved over the course of the last two years.

I wish you our very best and hope to welcome you back here. Please let us know when you do plan a trip.

With my best regards,

Daniel
