The host was great. The kitchen was opened for us on Easter and the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was by far some of the best food I've ever had. It wasn't the best bed, but it was fine. We had a ground floor room facing Gruyère. It was very serene. It was the perfect getaway hotel for a... More

On our way to our ski holiday we stayed 1 night. After a long drive...a warm welcome, lovely place, good room (bed could be better), fantastic view on the snowy mountains and the Gruyère castle, friendly people. Just what we needed, some rest and a good meal (but we forgot about Valentines evening, the restaurant was fully booked....slow service, but... More

We stayed one night to check out Gruyeres and the Giger museum. The hotel itself is quite lovely with its cabin-like vibe. Very clean, polite service and an excellent dinner and breakfast. Our balcony view was fantastic. The only thing was that we were there on a Friday night and there was a bar/club/party next door with crazy loud music... More

The room was lovely, the bathroom was clean and the shower was very powerful. The balcony was lovely for relaxing in the evenings with a great view of the mountains. The staff are very kind and helpful and speak good English. The wi-fi works just fine, and they have a postbox in the hotel and will sell you stamps. Negative... More

Sweet hotel run by a couple and the manager/owner was very helpful when we checked in and gave us lots of leaflets for local attractions. The room was an ok size and everything was spotlessly clean but the bed was a disappointment as it had a rather thin mattress that you could feel the slats through. Maybe they aren't the... More

We selected this hotel because it's very close to Gruyeres town. Around 3km by car close to Gruyeres. The manager is a friendly person and he provided us a better room than we already booked. The included breakfast was really good and the atmosphere was incredible. Good place for relax a very close to Gruyeres.

This is a great hotel outside of Gruyeres, which can be heavily crowded by tourists. We stayed only one night on our way to Lauterbrunnen. The wifi worked great, and the balcony from the 2nd floor room was lovely. The only "down side" was that in order to get early morning coffee, we had to go into the restaurant and... More

We were the only guests as it was at the start of January. The chef kindly lit the big roaring fire in the restaurant. She also did a special veggie meal for me and was very helpful telling us about Swiss recipes. She has a real passion for cooking and also knows about hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble.
