Lovely hotel,brilliant proprietors. Breakfast good BUT dinner poor. Not only that but not much of it. To be fair when mentioned they sought to correct but not good.

Stayed again for 5 days. Refurbished restaurant and new boot room. Helpful owners always willing to help. Our 15th visit and never disappointed once.

My 6 year old and I stayed at the Grand Chalet in Leysin and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is nicely situated. The room was very nice, a very good value in my opinion. We ate at the hotel's restaurant and the food as well as the service was very good. The restaurant was renovated recently and it looks fantastic! The owner of the Grand Chalet, and his wife went out of their way to make us feel welcome and satisfied. We were offered to use skis for my son (for free) during the day if we needed to. No doubt about it, next time we are going to Leysin we will be staying at the Grand Chalet.

The best breakfast in a hotel in 3 months in France & Switzerland. Evening food ok but the service was pretty erratic at dinner time - excellent and helpful staff the rest of the time though. Good wifi throughout, nice terrace overlooking the valley with great views over the mountains. Rooms clean and nice with terrace overlooking the mountains.
Parking is free and rubbish - no car park as such, just squeeze into the line of cars parked on the narrow road outside the hotel or at the bottom of the hill. However.. I did leave my car there for a week unattended with lots of gear in full view and NOBODY broke in.

The staff were friendly although you needed to speak French to some. The view was incredible and breakfast on the balcony was wonderful. The room was decorated nicely but the bed was uncomfortable. The food was really good.

So if they had made the beds more comfortable, this would have been the best hotel we've stayed in for ages. But still worth going to

Nice hotel perched above Leysin, around 2 km from the centre of the village, in a quiet position. Very friendly and helpful staff and owners, my fiancée and I we had a nice room (even if the bathroom was a bit small...) facing south, with a great view overlooking the mountains. Very nice ideas the Jacuzzi (that can be also half or totally covered, if you want...) on the terrace of the hotel, it's great to enjoy 37°C water in the tub, while outside there can be also -10°C.Very big buffet breakfast, good food at evening, I would like to return also in summer...I can suggest it also for families, couples and groups of friends. Parking can represent sometimes a small problem( or you park 100 meters before the hotel, or 100 meters below it, since the places along the slope sideways the hotel in winter often gets icy.
I hope to return there, it really deserves!!!

We are a family of 7. 2 adults and 5 children aged from 16 to 2. We are hard to please, having worked in the hotel/entertainments industry in the past! We do not praise lightly.

The hotel has a number of large family rooms Ideal for 4/5 people and the front facing rooms have the most amazing views. The half board option is good value for money. After a long day on the slops it is great to be able to enjoy good food of an evening without leaving the hotel.

This is very much a family hotel....Very clean, a home from home. There is a small lounge and bar area, small garden, and a Jacuzzi. The position of the hotel is not for the faint hearted! This is the highest point in Leysin. The car drive to the hotel through the village in the snow can be a challenge; snow chains can be required…. But the views are fab! From the hotel you are able to walk 100 yards, put on the ski’s and go down the small nursery slope, onto the bottom of the main run and you are within seconds at the bottom of the ski lift. A courtesy bus brings you back to the top at the end of the day.

We love Leysin, and the closeness of other resorts which share the ski pass which is just a short 10 mins drive.

We have stayed at this wonderful family hotel on at least 10 occasions. We consider the owners the Bonelli family as one of our family. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Last year they got up at 4.30 am to drive us down through the village in a huge snow storm, just make sure we were safe…..We are booked again for Feb 2007…and can’t wait !!!!!!!!!!!

ps

If you are looking for a large modern town centre hotel, don’t book Le Grand Chalet!
