Hotel-Restaurant Alphorn
Ranked #16 of 21 Hotels in Gstaad
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Alphorn is very conveniently located - next door to the ski lifts and a ski school. And the hotel has a ski rental shop attached. We had small kids who we wanted to initiate into skiing so it was very simple - everything was in one place. This saved us a lot of time.

We had a brilliant view of the slopes and mountains from our room so that was great. The room was well appointed - nothing extravagant but clean, efficient and functional - as is normal in Switzerland.

Breakfast was not great, but adequate. Dinner was excellent.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views

We were there for Summer with our 2 kids, my parents and my wife. Though Gstaad is like a ghost-town in summer, we had great walks in the country side, great views of the Alps and we found (after searching for other options in Gstaad) that the restaurant in the hotel was super! The waitresses there were really pleasant and charming and we loved it! They even gave the kids colour pencils and paper to draw, etc! I would recommend this hotel highly.

We had booked through the hotel direct for a room for three, which was to have a fold-up bed, but on arrival we were allocated a double and a single next door to each other - this was perfect and much better than we had expected. The rooms themselves were lovely - spotlessly clean and with plenty of space. Both rooms had balconies with a wonderful view, too. The beds were very comfortable - as would be expected in Switzerland. The furniture in the rooms was matching and the furnishings and décor were of a very high standard.
We had booked the Half-Board option and the dinners were of excellent quality. The restaurant is quite small but very cosy and ambient. One of the main courses during our stay was Fondue, which was a really nice touch to have on a set menu. There is an extensive wine list with many excellent Swiss wines to try. The breakfast buffet has plenty of choice and is constantly replenished. The selection of cheeses and breads is wonderful!
There is a nice bar which always seemed to be busy with locals and residents alike and the prices for beer were reasonable.
Although the hotel is located out of the centre of the village, it makes for a nice walk into Gstaad and offers a quieter setting. It is right next to the ski school and is near several lifts.
This hotel is a fantastic choice and was the perfect venue for our family break over the Christmas period.

Hotel standards in Switzerland are high in general. This one is no exception.
We went for a week ski holiday and this hotel offered a very good package deal with ski pass. It is at the piste so literally you can walk 20 steps to the ski lift after breakfast.

Clean, nice chalet, good restaurant, friendly helpful staff. Bed was comfy.
Would go back there for sure.

Great family-owned hotel in gorgeous Gstaad. I stayed in both summer and in the fall, during the off-season for skiing. Great area for hiking, walking, or day trips to wonderful places like Montreux and Gruyeres.
Rooms are lovely in a Swiss style with natural pine decor, beautiful views of the mountains, great breakfast, nice restaurant, wonderful staff. Good wi-fi access, fridges in rooms, nice sized baths. Walkable distance to the promenade and rail station, but you may need to take a cab on a rainy day. Still, one of my favorite places in the world.
Highly recommended.
