I had a great stay at Hotel Hornberg. Brigitte and Christian and their staff are exceptionally attentive and friendly. The facilities are top-notch and I had a superb, comfortable room. The location is perfect - 5 minutes from Saanenmöser station and even closer to the ski lifts. The restaurant offers great food and drink and inventive creations. Strongly recommend.

My family stayed at The Hornberg from 23rd August - 31st August in Room 15 and Family Suite Room 48. I didn't think the hotel could possibly live up to all the excellent reviews on Tripadivsor but it did - in fact it surpassed them. The hotel has an idyllic situation in a beautiful valley a few miles from Gstaad.... More

We've been here often. The friendliness of the owners and staff is unmatched, and it's a natural friendliness. They give you the feeling that they are honestly happy to have you and to spoil you. For a day or 3 weeks, this is the place to stay in the Swiss Alps.

Being a frequent traveller there is only one hotel in the world that I feel does such a great job for it's customers:"The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok".To compare these two hotels is crazy I agree but the Hornberg really does a brilliant job.Christian and his staff really get the small details right. They anticipate every need.From cleaning your walking shoes... More

This hidden gem of a hotel is not only superb value if you opt for the Halb Pension but the service is sensational. Each evening and morning, the owners check in with you on your plan for the day and help you make the most of your stay, including advice on hiking, transportation deals, etc. If you are traveling solo,...

We stayed here for ten nights in June. We are used to Swiss hotels being good but this one is quite exceptional. Christian and Brigitte have selected and trained up a really wonderful team of staff who are all, every single one of them, friendly, helpful and cheerful. They give 5 star service levels but without the pretension that usually... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Hornberg for a long weekend, during April 2014. What really sets this hotel apart, is the extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Everyone, from the reception staff to the owners, was very kind, always smiling, and made us feel completely at home. Other advantages: The hotel is ideally situated right between some... More

Great hotel with bar, restaurant, internet access, childrens playroom and movie room. Located right at the base of major lift connecting to a very good skiing system. I highly recommend it! Would not suggest it to party goers as it is far away from the clubs and the general spirit of the hotel is quite calm and private.
