We came to eat to the restaurant with my friends. I would like to note that the restaurant staff was very friendly and though the menu was VERY small, we ordered cheese fondu. I think it was one of the best fondues in my life. First of all I liked the bread, it was something special. Usually you get kind... More

From the start to the end of our trip, this place was amazing. The staff were incredible, and went well out of their way to make sure we had a good time. This included picking us up and dropping us off at the train station, tweaking their menu to allow for our fussy eating (no meat for one of us... More

We stayed at Saanewald Lodge last February and returned again this year for another great weekend. This time we chose a room with a valley view. The room itself was about the same size, but with the advantage that the en-suite bathroom is considerably larger than the glass cube partitioned bathroom in the forest view room. The standard of food... More

A great hotel to spend a week skiing. Easy, ski in, ski out. Great for families, especially children - with large communal areas. Outdoor hot tub superb in the evenings after a day on the slopes. Restaurant good. Incredibly friendly staff. Fun ski doo rides to and fro nursery slopes or the train station. An excellent area for skiing families.... More

Four of us (my husband, brother and father) stayed for two nights at Saanewald Lodge in January 2014, following an earlier long weekend at the same Lodge in the summer of 2013 which we thoroughly enjoyed. We all had a wonderful time - Urs, Philip, Helmut, Jenny, and all the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, with nothing being too... More

Nice property to stay at while in Gstaad. It is one station before Gstaad (coming from Spiez), at Saanenmoser. From the station it is a steep 20min walk, but you could always call the hotel of your arrival and they readily send their vehicle to pick you up. You could also request for pick ups/drops while there. The hotel is... More

Had left one of the best experiences of my Europe trips - quite, comfortable and very friendly place, ideal for skiing as it located right on a mountain (probably the best in gstaad region) just in 100 meters from the ski lift.. Hope to stay there again sometime with friends! Thanks a lot for the postcatds)) cheers

We spend 2 nights during the summer of 2013 and can't wait to go back. A mid-sized hotel that feels like home. Very comfortable beds with crisp linens, in clean no frills bedrooms. Staff are uncommonly nice and eager to offer tips for enjoying and exploring the region. This is one of the most beautiful valleys in the Berner Oberland,... More
