We spend a week in Gstaad palace, and we were impressed by the friendliness of the staff, quality of the food and level of SPA facilities. We were on half board and both breakfast and dinner were tasty and high level. Staff at the ski room was professional and ready to help whenever you needed. View of the room was... More

We stayed in a standard double room at the Palace which was compact but very well furnished. Beds comfortable; everything well maintained. Small indoor swimming pool and small outdoor jacuzzi pool with amazingly strong jets - great fun! Pool and jacuzzi immaculately clean. One major negative for me: the indoor pool did not open until 08:30. I swim every morning... More

My partner and I visited Gstaad this weekend and we have had a fabulous time. We absolutely love the hotel, which despite being reassuringly expensive, is steeped in history and has a wonderfully old school feel about it. We both feel it has been a privilege to stay here. The room, spa, service and restaurants are all of a standard... More

First class 5 star hotel, owned and managed by a family to the highest possible standard of the industry today. This is one of the 4 or 5 last luxury hotels still owned by the family of the founders at the begining of the 20th Century. The food is fabulous, the service second to none with many of the same...

We just had a fantastic first trip to Gstaad staying at the Palace hotel, which helped to make our memories excellent ones. We spent 7 nights/8 days in a 2-bedroom junior suite, which was beautifully and elegantly appointed. It had lovely views over Gstaad, and was very comfortable and warm, especially the beds! It was a tough choice deciding which... More

I visited the Gstaad Palace with a group from Parmigiani for the Balloon Festival. The room was fantastic, the reception staff extremely helpful, concierge polite (even at the small hours of the morning), breakfast exactly how I ordered brought to my room on time with more than enough food/drinks. The in-room facilities were excellent with everything you could need for... More

A beautiful grand old hotel located high above Gstaad. The pool and spa are top notch. The rooms are old school Swiss is style. Generous bathroom sizes and very comfortable beds. No control over room temperature so you often found yourself roasting! and few plugs were found in rooms. The bar is loud and crowded on the weekend nights. This... More

Gstaad Palace is an amazing hotel with "take-your-breath away" views and facilities. The service is outstanding and the food excellent. The prices are high even for Switzerland (pressing two suits cost 90 CHF (~$100)). Be careful though with your reservation. We had a CONFIRMED reservation for a room and was contacted about a week before our arrival that they had... More
