“Romantic and Warm”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

We stayed in the charming Fleur De Lys in Dec. 2010.
The hotel is perfect for a warm, romantic getaway.
The room was clean, spacy, elegently styled and warm.
Breakfast was rich and included an assortment of cheeses and baked pastery.
I highly reccomend visiting Fleur de Lys for a romantic, magical stay.
The staff was always pleasent and the resturant was wonderful- we had dinner the twice and it was great.

Reviewed 28 October 2011

We stayed here in late June, 2011. The location is perfect, in the middle of the small town of Gruyere. We had two rooms, both were basic, clean and quiet. The furniture is Ikea/student dorm style and the bathrooms, although very functional and clean, are very dated. The breakfast was included in the price, it too was basic, but fine (cheese, bread, jams, hard boiled eggs, cold meats and cold cereals). We had one lunch at the hotel, ordered the quiches and found them very over priced and bland. We had our other meals at the restaurant across the street. The hotel is closed in the winter, so they may not answer your emails this time of year. If you are booking for the summer you can do so via the Swiss tourism site.

The town is very small, but the views are amazingly beautiful and it is worth spending a day or two here. The castle is interesting and houses some art exhibitions. Don't miss the Giger Bar (based on the Alien movies - you have to see it to believe it - this is what brought us to Gruyere) and the artist's museum that houses his sci-fi concept art, paintings and sculptures as well as his personal collection of art. http://www.hrgiger.com/ There is also a small museum of Tibetan art, which I enjoyed but it is a little pricey for the size of the collection.

We were in search of a nice place to have a quick and pleasant local dish (we love the cheese and dairy products from the Gruyère) but were very much disappointed. Having ordered 3 quiches à la Gruyère we soon discovered that there were just some generic pie crusts filled with some sort of completely tasteless gelatinish paste. The price however was very exclusive and hence this review. Neither of us 3 was able to eat more than a third of it even though we were very hungry, it was that bad. Nobody seemed indifferent to our not eating what we had ordered.
Here in Switzerland you can buy a frozen quiche at any mayor food store and have a much, much better product. All in all it was a very disappointing and expensive experience even though the surroundings in Gruyère are wonderful and memorable. This place gives you the feeling that they cater mainly to one time tourists.

Good, clean accommodation in a beautiful environment. The owners love their surroundings and were always helpful and friendly. Their assistance ensured that we saw all the attractions the area - cheese farm, chocolate factory, castle, snowy mountain peaks, lovely walks... The rooms are basic but comfortable and have everything one needs and gorgeous views. All in all, good value for money.

Reviewed 27 April 2010

Friendly manageress made for a promising start. Room as described, basic but adequate. However, dinner was very disappointing - menu thrown on to the table with no eye contact from a grumpy waitress, expensive indifferent wine, stale sauces to go with the Fondue Chinoise, and the 'fresh raspberries' turned out to be frozen when they arrived. Bed creaked horribly and the covers were made from sandpaper. Nice breakfast though, and a friendly waitress boiled your eggs exactly to order.
Gruyeres, the surounding countryside, and the views were stunning.

We would like to thanks the owners and all the personals of "Fleur de Lys" for their hostility! We had our wedding party on 16.01.10 there and everything was so well organised: delicious food, wonderful decorations and always very welcome and helpful personal.
All the guests were amazed we managed to find such nice hotel with charm of old Gruyere. The rooms are simple, but very comfortable and spacious.
We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed being there. It is in a centre of old town, with a view on the Castle. Next days we visited cheese fabric, spent excellent time skiing and some people were enjoying sledges (there is 4 km trace near by on Moleson), others visited the The Gruyère baths in Charmey (10 min from hotel). Thank you, "Fleur de Lys", making these days really special for us and our guests! That was magic!
With kindest regards Yulia & Dmitry
