Our satnav gave up but eventually we found the lodge up on the mountain. Very laid back and hip with nice retro touches. They did a great job of turning a genuine sixties venue into a hip retro place. The lodge is geared more towards winter than summer guests, it appears. During our 3-night stay just two rooms were occupied,... More

Vrey cosy and funky place, with relics and collector items from the early days of skiing to decorate the place. Added to that, a few modern design items, such as the lamp shades. We have been there several times for lunch, walking from the parking at the village of Saanenmöser. Food is good and so is service. Love the thick... More

We stayed at the (genuinely ski in / ski out) Saanewald Lodge with our 3 children (7, 5 and 4) during the last week of the ski season this year and it was literally perfect! We are looked after fantastically well by the charming staff and no request was too much. The children fell in love with the hot pot... More

A group of friends and I have stayed in this hotel twice a year, every year, since 2008/09. It remains a hotel committed to personal customer service. All the staff make you feel like a friend, as well as a guest. It is a superb place to stay for skiing as it is right next to the piste. The food... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Saanewald Lodge! Yes the rooms are not big but it is enough because you should be out all day enjoying the mountains & return in the evening to a warm cosy place where the service is excellent & the food is good! We have stayed here twice already! Feb 2013 & Dec 2014.... More

We were accidentally overbooked at this hotel. Dissapointed, but not for long. The Lodge and Nathanel, at their front desk, took care of the mistake and booked us another hotel, that was considerably a higher rated hotel than the Lodge. They did not have to do this, but with their mistake, they made it right. We came for dinner during... More
