This is a great 4 star hotel. Very comfortable beds and wonderful staff and good european breakfast. It is located about a 10-15min walk away from Gstaad town and has a ski/ snowboard winter sport shop opposite of this hotel and Eggli Ski lift right next door. This is a wonderful place since it is convenient for everything.

We ate here a couple of times.  Extensive menu, including pizza, good salads, and the usual fondues and Alpine dishes.  Not haut cuisine, but everything was well prepared.  Busy, with a good atmosphere.  Service was fine, although they seemed a bit understaffed at times.

I spent a great weekend at this lovely family hotel in Gstaad. The service was excellent throughout our stay. We made use of the private spa which is located just a few meters from the hotel. No rush, relaxing music, a great idea to switch-off! The food was great as well. The only small issue we had was a smell...

The hotel is very well located with parking. Next to chairlift & not even 10 min. walk from the city-centre. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The standard double-room has a very good size with nice balcone. Would definitely go back.
