“A room with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

Superbly located hotel in the centre of Villars. We stayed in a large south facing room with a balcony and amazing views of the Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc. Friendly staff, good service and great food. The bedroom decor is traditionally alpine and a bit dated, the spa and terrace are contemporary. We'd definitely
stay here again.

I stayed at the Hotel du Golf for 5 nights, the 3rd week of May. I was part of a tour group and we were all given rooms that had mountain views as I believe this was their off season and they were not too busy. My room was large with a balcony and breathtaking views of the mountains and little clusters of houses. It was nicely laid out with plenty of closet space and lots of hangers - at least 20! The bathroom was spacious and the shower worked very well, although quite a high step out of the tub. Everything was very clean. The rooms also have a safe which is very handy. There is free wifi in the rooms - great for keeping in touch and sharing the mountain views!

We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the meals were very good. Breakfast was a buffet with scrambled eggs, sausages, bread for toasting, cheese, ham, cereals and delicious pastries. The coffee and tea service was pleasant and efficient. Our dinners were also very good with a different menu each night, everything cooked well. Three in our group were on gluten free diets and were well accomodated by the hotel.

I used the spa area for sauna, steam room, jacuzzi tub and bucket shower and everything was clean and well maintained. A very relaxing experience!

The front desk was very helpful with information about the town. The hotel is located a 3 minute walk from a train/bus station that you can take to visit Montreux or Aigle. They also have maps showing local hiking trails, which were unfortunately too muddy and slippery to hike on while we were there. The hotel has a very nice looking patio restaurant/ bar in the back which is probably open in the summer. It would have lovely mountain views, but too cold to be sitting out much when we were there. Apparently it was the coldest spring in 30 years this year, so hopefully outdoor activities are usually OK in May. In spite of the cool weather I enjoyed the stay at the Hotel du Golf.

We stayed here in late May during a visit to one of the local schools.
Although booked into a standard room, the hotel upgraded us to a valley view room (although, the mountains were only visible on the first evening due to some really bad weather!).
The room was comfortable, had a great shower and was everything one could have wanted.
We had breakfast every morning at the hotel – it was a good spread, with excellent choice of meats and cheese, breads and spreads – as well as a hot option too. The breakfast staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Hotel reception staff spoke excellent English and were also very pleasant.
All in all – a lovely hotel – highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded to a Valley View room - they might just do it (they did for us!)

We (couple & toddler) stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in January and again in April. The room first time around, although very dated was clean and a good size. The view form the balcony was stunning. The hotel staff were very friendly, however reception staff, presumably all family were very hit and miss. Asking for our dinners to be delivered to our room seemed to cause much confusion to one receptionist in particular. She insisted we could not ave the cheese plate nor salad as we had to chose them ourselves. I said, just ask the waiter to do it, we will be happy with that... No warm welcome on either stay. The elder family members seem to prowl around giving grumpy glances at guests. What is that about?
Our 2nd stay, and fair to say our last, we were not so taken with the place. The room was not properly cleaned and smelled musty. The hotel seem to rely on their location and views. They could do with a good shake up.
If it were not for the discount we received via our insurance co, there is NO WAY I would have been happy to pay full rates. It is simply not a comparable 4**** hotel.

Very nice family-owned hotel. Cosy and warm atmosphere. The food is excellent, the employees are very helpful and sympatic. The view is gorgeous. The spa is quite nice (try the whirlpool outside facing the snowy Alps!
I was there for business: the meeting room is very nice as well, very clear with a beautiful view!
Great value-price ratio!

Room Tip: Room 102 was excellent

Just back from a few days skiing. Booked at the Golf because the hotel with whom I originally booked failed to honour my reservation as they had to close at the behest of the authorities! The location is excellent, a hundred metres from the railway station and the ski hie shop - we were skiing by nine am even though we had to rent skis that morning. So, great location but the hotel is to that net resting: nice deck and decent food, if dull breakfast. Did not use the wellness area.

We were pretty disappointed by this so called 4 star hotel. The welcome was ok but not really warm. We had to go back to ask for the bathrobes in order to access the welness area. The rooms are very rustic and would need a serious fresh up. The bathroom was clean and functional but also very old style. Room was not fully cleaned up, we found an ice tea bottle and a nut on the floor beside the bed. The heating automatically stops with a temperature of 18 degrees, to our taste a bit too fresh. Had to ask for additional blankets and after a second attempt they brought a small electrical heating. View was spectacular with a nice balcony. The wellness area was newly renovated and pretty nice, but the guests don't seem to understand that it is for relaxation and that screaming, laughing and shouting is for the slopes. The hotel should consider reminding the guests with clear rules. The restaurant service was pretty good, not that much the food which was average. Happily we had a special discount through a third party for this booking, because the overall services of this hotel does not justify the normal rates!
