An out and out Swiss experience with a very friendly front desk and an awesome pizzeria serving great food.

Its location close to many of the summer walking routes means this hotel was picked by us for its convenience. But when we got there we found we had picked a real gem. The staff are a great asset and we were well looked after, particularly in the restaurant.

A synonym of the Gstaad paradox. Posh by its (especially Winter) clientele, yet very welcoming mid-mountain restaurant.
