Gstaad Palace is the best of the best. We stayed several times in summer time- just perfect. Rooms (especially interconnected ones), restaurants, lobby bar are amazing!!! Service is nothing to add! It's one of the hotels we adore. And Gstaad is one of the place we always want to come back?

The hotel had open house days in 2013 to mark it's 100years as hotel for most discerning travelers, just that was an amazing event. You don't need to sleep in this hotel to feel welcomed guest, dining in Italian restaurant which is open in winter only is the best pleasure that exists to me . Pasta us freshly prepared according...

If you are looking for traditional Swiss hospitality this is your place. The staff are lovely and the restaurant if great. We have always been during the summer months which are typically quieter than the winter. The spa is amazing, I highly recommend the Hammam experience! Only drawback is they don't have AC in the rooms, so be prepared to... More

The hotel itself is beautiful with a real mountain feeling. The lobby is a great place to hang out, people watch and play board or card games, the spa is fantastic and rooms are nice too, but the staff needs to be changed immediately. Save 2 or 3 people, there are always exceptions and it would be unfair to generalise,... More

A stay at the Hotel Palace is a Holiday for it self. Everything is perfect. The rooms are wonderful, decorated with taste and very clean. The food is very nice, the wine list just as appropriate. The bar - especially when with live music - they place to be. We enjoyed it and will go back. Thank you Mr. Scherz... More

It is rare to simply be able to say a stay is faultless but this was. We treated ourselves to a comfortable room which gave us a lounge seating area and south facing balcony on the fourth floor. We'd elected for half board but this significantly understates what "The Palace" means by this. You have a 5 course culinary journey... More

We stayed here with a 2.5 years old in summer. It was our first visit. Among all the luxury hotels in Gstaad, this is the most classic choice. It towers above Gstaad, everyone knows "The Palace". It is in family hands for over 100 years, and you do get a feeling of a boutique family operation while you stay here.... More

This is truly a wonderful hotel, situated in a gorgeous and privileged setting. It has a rather fairytale appearance and the experience of staying there is in keeping with this.
