I loved this hotel. The service and ammenities were amazing. Fresh bottled water everyday, chocolates on your pillow every night, the restaurant was wonderful, I loved the balconies and all the large windows. All the furniture and bedding was new and stylish. Free-standing tub in the room, good wifi, lots of closet and storage space.

The hotel is amidst the most beautiful landscape. The view from the hotel room is like an oil canvas painting. It so picturesque that it almost seems unreal. The first day the we had mountains with light green grass & dark green trees dotted with the famous swiss cows grazing. The next day the entire landscape changed to stark white.... More

A wonderful little log cabin hotel at the heart of what surely looks like heaven. I spent three relaxing days for a workshop and felt as though I was on a vacation. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are immaculately clean. The balcony of my room was perched over an amazing stream.

This is a great 4 star hotel. Very comfortable beds and wonderful staff and good european breakfast. It is located about a 10-15min walk away from Gstaad town and has a ski/ snowboard winter sport shop opposite of this hotel and Eggli Ski lift right next door. This is a wonderful place since it is convenient for everything.

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.
