The Grand Hotel des Rasses is an Art Nouveau building from the turn of the century; as they were built during the grand times of Swiss tourism. During the low season in October we have taken advantage of a fantastic bargain. The rooms with Valley views are quiet. Just outside the hotel passes a not much used road which could...

Grand Hôtel des Rasses is wonderfully located in the Swiss mountains. We booked an overnight stay during our business trip last week, and because we arrived quite late, our keys were put on the counter ready for us. Our rooms were dated and rather small, but clean (which is more important imho). Point of concern: the turning knob on the...

The hotel location is perfect for a weekend, far away from the noise and offers a great view. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Rates could be a bit lower, having in mind that the rooms are quite old.

Very large room, clean and modern, typical Swiss Hotel much better than most 3 star hotels elsewhere. Bathroom very clean, shower works great with high water pressure. All at a great price for the area and includes free Swiss Style breakfast.

A wonderful evening with a superb menu, the chef certainly knows what he is doing, a pearl! The live band was excellent and very energetic, thanks to Marc Landert, the former manager, who had the great idea of booking a live band, so much better than these cheesy DJ's that you get sometimes!

We stayed at this hotel with extended family to celebrate the 75th birthday of a relative. The hotel was once a grand hotel with splendid architecture. The building, infrastructure, rooms and bathrooms are in need of modernisation and renovation. The decor and facilities are stuck between 1900 and 1970's. On the positive the view is amazing, especially on a clear...

Attended my brother's wedding mid-September this year. Spent only 1 night at the Grand Hotel des Rasses as a group of 80 plus. It was a lovely place to have a late summer event.

The first part of the hotel, the rectangular part, was built in 1898 and the large square part that now contains the reception, dining room etc was added some 15 years later. One can see how grand it must have been for those days but it has also been kept up to date so is a comfortable place to stay....

Very nice and family friendly. we were in a family suite with balcony and beautiful views. A lot of noise in the evening because of staff tiding up restaurant. .. The swimming pool is small and not so warm. Rooms are big and food is good.
