We ate here a couple of times.  Extensive menu, including pizza, good salads, and the usual fondues and Alpine dishes.  Not haut cuisine, but everything was well prepared.  Busy, with a good atmosphere.  Service was fine, although they seemed a bit understaffed at times.

I spent a great weekend at this lovely family hotel in Gstaad. The service was excellent throughout our stay. We made use of the private spa which is located just a few meters from the hotel. No rush, relaxing music, a great idea to switch-off! The food was great as well. The only small issue we had was a smell... More

The hotel is very well located with parking. Next to chairlift & not even 10 min. walk from the city-centre. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The standard double-room has a very good size with nice balcone. Would definitely go back.

Everyone of all ages enjoys this restaurant very often you see three generations enjoying lunch or dinner together . The children have loads to do with an indoor playroom in the winter and outside in the garden in the summer ? Around 40 sfr for a pizza makes it rather expensive though. The pizza is excellent it must be said... More
