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

Found this hotel on TripAdvisor. It was just terrific for us - understanding that we are not millionaires are were there for some skiing,... More

Stayed in Gstaad for 4 nights during November and picked Arc en Ciel based on previous reviews. There was some renovation going on during our stay which did not detract from this lovely hotel. We had a nice room in the other bulding that makes up the hotel .. only a 30 second walk from the main building. The room... More

I came to Gstaad from Geneva to meet up with my aunt and uncle who were staying in town. I chose the place based on value for money and I was not disappointed! I had a lovely room on the river's edge, and enjoyed being a bit "separate" from the village of Gstaad. My room was spacious, and I found... More

As a 50th birthday treat we paid the £360 a night to stay here. Had dinner too. While the room was beautifully appointed we were stuck in an annexe with a view of the car park and the nearby wine warehouse. Staff barely spoke to us, didn't even mention when and where breakfast would be served.
