“Alpenrose the BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Wonderful stay in the mountains at Alpenrose again. Walking, cycling and visits to Gstaad. Great walk from Schronried. Use the lift passes which give access to trains and buses as well. Perfect escape. Will be back!!!

The von Siebenthal family gas been running this fabulous hotel for four generations. Great attention to detail, lovely generous breakfast included and really comfy beds with fabulous views. The whole family is involved and very responsive to their guests' needs. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Get room with southern exposure looking towards the ski runs, etc.

We spent one week in the Alpenrose in Schoenried and it was an amazing week. The room was just brilliant, very big, very clean and furnished with a great taste. The service from the staff was warm and friendly, the room-service for meals was open until 2am, the breakfast buffet is very delicious and the has a wide range of different breads and croissants. At the end of this week we decided to go back this autumn and spend another week there! Thanks to the staff for the great memories!

Room Tip: We had the family room with the gallery, its was just perfect for the four of us! We can highly reco...

Even though it is located along the main road connecting Gstaad and Zweisimmen, the street noise did not impact the calmness of the vicinity. The view, whether facing north or south, is wonderful particularly during the winter period. Instead of paying high prices staying in Gstaad, this location is only 10-15 minute drive; and has two wonderful restaurants on site. The gourmet restaurant was closed for the season when we visited, but the grill/bistro was available and the food was solid. Typical swiss chalet style (and furniture); and the staff was very friendly. Don't expect high tech electronics or modern decors; there is no fancy spa facilities here either. But it is definitely cozy. Even though I enjoy my stay at the Palace and at the Grand Hotel Bellevue during my previous visits to the area, the Hostellerie Alpenrose is worth considering.

Location is charming (although it is located next to a busy road), but there is a lot of work to do for this hotel. Room and especially the bathroom is very old fashioned. (FE a ten years old TV). Breakfast was good (great ingredients), but service was very slow. I do not understand why relais chateaux accepts this house as one of their members. It is not in line with their high standards. I will not return to this hotel.

We have joined the long list of people from different countries who come here year after year and are treated as near family by the charming owners, Michael and Carole. Although we normally prefer rustic food to the posh stuff, we make a happy exception for Michael's sophisticated cooking in the upstairs "gourmet" restaurant. It is light, satisfying and extremely good, with a menu that never seems to repeat. Downstairs there is an informal Pizza/Rotisserie restaurant which we have not got round to trying, as the gourmet meals come included in the very good value, half-board ski packages, but the food there comes from the same kitchen. Also downstairs is Sammy's, the bar run by the inimitable Martin. On other fronts the hotel is great - the south facing rooms we have stayed in are lovely - very large, with sofas, balconies, great views and big baths. There is safe underground parking which is useful for a car or motorbike packed with kit, and I have stopped in the summer when touring (nothing really beats breakfast on the Alpenrose terrace followed by a bike ride into the mountains). I wouldn't think of trying anywhere else in the area

Room Tip: Choose a south-facing room with a balcony

Guiding a group of 14 is always nerve wracking, but I can honestly say that everyone(some quite elderly) was seriously happy with the wonderful service and incredibly cheery staff, in spite of the bombardent of questions they received every day.
The food was excellent, but do ask for options if you are a coeliac.They are only too happy to oblige though I did take my own cereal.

Room Tip: There is a reason for the difference in price form North and South facing rooms(north face the main...
