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. Despite this being a luxury hotel the staff are very friendly. In fact they are a lot nicer than many of the boutique staff in the town itself, who act... More

I am sure that, like us, you are considering the "other" Palace hotel in the land of chocolates and cuckoo clocks = the Palace Hotel in St Moritz. So how do both compare? a) service: Gstaad Palace is friendly & attentive.. St Moritz Palace is cold & arrogant b) decor: Gstaad P is full of open fireplaces & warmth.. St... More

I stayed ten days at the Palace in January. I was scared at first as I remember this hotel 40 years ago and its reputation of stuffy, snobby and selectively efficient depending on who was the guest. I must say that I was agreeably surprised and overall very satisfied with my stay at the Palace. First the rooms & bathrooms... More

I spent 3 nights of my honeymoon in Gstaad Palace. We loved our stay there and my wife was over the moon the entire time. The Champagne we received on arrival as a wedding gift might have been a factor. We had a great time over-all. The service was excellent and the rooms were really nice - if a little... More

This review is of 2 restaurants in this hotel (although we did stay there) - there was no entry for them on Tripadvisor restaurant section so have to be file under 'hotel' review which would have preferred to have avoided as I concentrate purely on restaurant reviews.
