Gruyeres is a bit of an exotic destination. One needs to get there to appreciate its secluded beauty. Yes, it's mostly for tourists, but it is definitely worth a visit. Medieval castle, where you are left to wonder and explore on your own, a few small rustic restaurants, small shops along the cobblestone streets. Mountain views over alpine meadows are... More

We had a very nice stay at the hotel. The room was very clean and cosy with view on the village. Both the owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. We had dinner which was well cooked. Also the breakfast was very tasty and big.

I loved the hotel and the view from the window. It was a romantic place and suddenly you were plunked down in another time. Rolling hills, cows, farms, fresh air--so much green for October! The room was large, the bed comfy, the breakfast substantial.

We didn't stay there but we had lunch at the restaurant. Of course we had the fondue, which came with bread. We ordered boiled potatoes and dry cured beef, as well. We could have as much fondue as we like. The fondue is what is known as moitié & moitié - half cheese and half white wine. It was very... More

Basic clean hotel in the historical city, really felt in the old Europran town. Room space jsut enough, though I may prefer a small writing desk. Services weere prompt. The restaurant foods were authetic, enjoyed the fodue. Not a place for shopping, you can only find the shop selling cheese and chocolate. Walking around the area was a great enjoyment.... More

Our good friends in Switzerland hooked us up with the wonderful Edelweiss room, four poster bed, and fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. Magic. We were on a whirlwind tour of Switzerland, and coming from Zurich, where everything runs like clockwork, it could be a bit disconcerting to run into this country approach to hotels. But it's the country.... More

I was there on a study abroad trip... More

Indeed, centrally located, minutes away from the castle. Only 8 rooms, rustic in appearance, nice furniture, but despite their claim internet service was not working. Elevator so small that it fit only one person and one bag. Breakfast was rather standard and not really good. Why serve merengue and cream in the morning?). Staff friendly.

The hotel is located in the middle of the small village of Gruyeres, which makes it very conveinent to walk around, visit the shops, castle, museums, and enjoy drinks at the several different bars and restaurants throughout the village. Parking is available at no charge at the lot closest to the town, which made it nice..you just need to let... More
