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.
