We stayed here for several days in mid-March, yet another visit in a long series extending back decades. The Gletschergarten was always a favorite of my parents, and now there are four generations of my family that feel at home at this hotel. It helps that the hotel management also straddles multiple generations, each of which is always so welcoming... More

The lasting memory for me from my stay will be the amazing welcome and service by the owners and staff. They really are something special. This is a traditional hotel with traditional decor, but all the rooms that my friends and I stayed in were large, comfortable and clean. The hotel is really well positioned with a bus stop to...

Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The meals were good and the location excellent. The spa has been recently renovated and is gorgeous. Our room was a good size and nice and quiet. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I have stayed at this family-run hotel 5 times in the last 7 years. The last 3 times have been with a big group (18 women) and I have to commend the owners for their FANTASTIC service, food and their hospitality to all of us. They have gone above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful time each... More

They go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience. It is family operated and the next generation is currently being trained.

Brilliant hotel. Authentic 114 year old pension. The family who own it really care about their guests being happy. Very clean and well set up rooms. Fantastic location. Wonderful fireside lounge bar. And a lift so no lugging bags upstairs. Close to the cablecar to the First skifield. Nothing that could be faulted. The best place we have ever stayed... More

We have just had a brilliant week skiing, as a family staying at The Hotel Gletschergarten. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. With a skibus stop outside the door all the slopes were readily accessible. The food was excellent and they catered for small children and special diets with equal ease.

Wonderful place to stay. Gabriel and Gary are wonderful hosts. Each evening they would help us plan out next day. The location is perfect. walking in the Swiss Alps could not be better. Food is excellent. Nothing could be better. Service is thoughtful, attentive-- outstanding.

This is a charming old mountain hotel with all one needs for an active holiday - including a restorative new sauna. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The location is quiet and only a few minutes walk from the town centre.
