After a 15 minute stroll from Saanen train station, my wife and I arrived at the Hotel Alpine Lodge, not really knowing what to expect. We had gone for a little get away and from the moment we entered the door we knew we had made a good choice.
Alex, the receptionist, took our names to check the booking before telling us to leave our bags with him. He quickly fetched us a drink of our choice and told us to go sit on the patio and that the rest of the details could be sorted after we had relaxed for a minute or 2.
We went and sat in the sun, feeling pampered before we even got started! After finishing our drinks, we met Alex at the desk who showed us to our unique room. We had the hiking suite, which had a directions post in case you couldnt find the bed, computer etc. 1 word of warning - they have actual rocks as part of the floor in that room so watch out for stubbed toes!
The room was great. Fresh apples on the bed, large balcony, good bathroom. No minibar but no matter, the bar downstairs is only 2 minutes away and a wonderful setting.
We didnt try the food whilst we were there opting to explore Gstaad and Saanen instead. However we were given a tour and the dining area was very nice indeed.
I would not think twice about staying there if we go back to the area. After many years of traveling, and many 4-5* hotels visited, I dont think I have had such good service from the 1st second as I did there. Thanks again Alex, you made that little extra effort which made our weekend that little bit more special.
