Recently we (couple) spent one night at the Lodge on our way from the South of France to the Netherlands. Having stayed at the the Lodge in the winters before we were looking forward to the stopover. We appeared to be the only overnight staying guests, but received full attention from the complete staff. During our drive we were called... More

We spent 4 nights at Saanewald recently, and were impressed with the overall character and intimacy of the lodge. The common areas are comfortably decorated and inviting for guests--not like the sterile lounges of most hotels. The spa was a definite highlight--steambath, sauna, and infrared sauna were ideal ways to relax after our hiking and cycling days. We ate all... More

We went there for a weekend during the low season. The hotel looks nice and the common spaces are really nice and plenty of personal touches.However the rooms are very small and the one close to the restaurant like ours very noisy. The restaurant and the food are great; we had dinner there and the quality of the dishes was... More

Very nice hotel in the near of Gstaad. The Hot Pot was really amazing especially with the snow around. We had a dinner in the Hotel, and as it was a season of wild hunting, we had a deer and it was very good. The hotel has also spa center with hammam, sauna, jacuzzi and warmly decorated rest area. The... More

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, nice location (unless you come by train - it's a fair unexpected walk up to the lodge). Room was tiny, but that doesn't matter too much, as there is plenty to do just in the resort aside from sitting around in the room! We were lucky to come during the chasse (game) season - the meal...

Philip , Ours and his staff (Thomas, Minnie, Robert to mention a few) were extremely nice and welcoming. Lovely terrace and lounges..Good breakfast. Did not try the spa/relax area but next time..Would definitely go... More

Stylish hotel with about 35 rooms located close to town but already in nature. Friendly staff and manager and excellent food (it was game meat season when we were there). Good hiking / skiing right from the doorstep. And for afterwards, nice spa incl. outdoor hot tub.

Excellent, excellent friendly service. Fantastic food, service and atmosphere at the restaurant. After living five years in Switzerland, one of the best restaurant experiences in the country. Nice spa area downstairs. The rooms are a bit tiny but nicely renovated and furnished. Would go back here anytime and recommend going here also in the spring/summer time, as the hiking/trekking opportunities... More
