The location, right in the small town, was excellent. We weren't really greeted, not were we wished goodbye at the end of our stay. It was almost as if our visit was tolerated. The rooms were old and not updated, you could say charming, but the beds were not comfortable. They could do so much more to attempt, and maybe... More

Visited yesterday, we had the fondue 100% vacherin which was really delicious (creamy and tasty). It was served with potatoes and bread. Too bad that you have to pay an extra 4.50 chf for oignons and gherkins.

In our opinion, the place to be in Gruyeres! We have found fantastic service, a very warm welcome and atmosphere, a pretty and clean room with great view on the valley, and a very good typicall abundant breakfast. In addition, the location is perfect, inside the ancient town which gives a magic atmosphere during day and night. We want to... More

Two couples from Canada stayed over night at La Fleur de Lys. The atmosphere was second to none, and the service provided was excellent. The only mistake we made was not having our cheese fondue here. Although warned of higher prices up the hill, we mistakenly did not heed their advise. The breakfast served in the morning was evidence of... More

Gruyeres is a beautiful, medieval town and well worth a visit. The Hotel La Fleur de Lys is a perfect place to base yourself to explore the town and surrounding areas (Gruyere factory just up the road). Rooms and small and bathroom a bit dated but we didn't care, the service was great and very attentive. Bit of a climb... More

Our stay at this hotel was the result of a last minute decision to visit Gruyeres during our trip to Switzerland. Truthfully, we would not have missed the town or hotel. Our room, fronting onto the medieval old Main Street of Gruyeres and its happy, gurgling fountain, was spacious and clean. With the windows open at nighttime, no noises interrupted... More

This hotel is right inside the small town of Gruyere, so the location is perfect. The rooms were clean and the help was very kind and helpful. We arrived early, and our room wasn't ready. We were able to place our bags inside the room until it was cleaned. We were also able to look into every available room and... More

We spent three wonderful nights in La Fleur de Lys, while exploring other parts of La Gruyeres. Our room was large and very clean and we had a wonderful view over the valley at the back of the Hotel. Catherine is a charming hostess who always found time to engage in conversation about our visit. She and her staff did... More
