Hotel Le Grand Chalet
Ranked #9 of 21 Hotels in Gstaad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of Switzerland and really wished we could have stayed for longer. The staff are excellent, they can't do enough, going out of their way to make sure you have what you want, they organised a days hike for us at no notice. The hotel is in the style of a typical Swiss chalet so it's quite informal and relaxed (unlike many hotels in this part of the world). The rooms are large and luxurious furnished and ours had a magnificent view over the town and the mountains. The restaurant is first rate, serving excellent well cooked food - and the chef will cook just about anything you want. So are there any downsides? Not really - apart from the price but if you can afford it then this is a wonderful place to stay.

The hotel is very nice and cozy, decorated in a swiss chalet style with a wooden.
It's located in avery quite area, a littile away from Gstaad center, but since we were by car, it wasn't a problem.
The room is big, clean and also very cozy and makes you feel at home.
Sauna is also nice and since the hotel is not big, there are not many people, so we were in SPA center alone.
Breakfast is also marvelous with good choice of local cheese and jams. And from the terrace you have a breakfast there is a nice view on mountains.

My husband and I went there for my birthday and we booked directly for a Chez vous package (3 nights).
The hotel is located high on the hill top, so we couldn't really walk to walk and back (plus it was freezing cold in Jan.) but the hotel offers a shuttle ride whenever needed till 21h00 (not so sure till what time).
The rooms are cozy, clean and very pretty.
Breakfast downstairs had great choice, also you could order breakfast in room free of charge.
In our package we had dinner included and I can only say kudos to the chef. The food was exquisite.
At the reception, they were very helpful and pleasant. They organized our activities with pleasure and I would like to thank them once more for being so helpful.
We enjoyed our stay there very much and would like to visit again and this time maybe even in the spring.
So I highly recommend le grand chalet to everyone.
Enjoy : )

We loved hotel! Clean, beautiful, lovely. Excellent staff ,service ,restaurant and surroundings. I highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent, with fantastic views of the mountains. It has a good transportation service for free to the city. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff is incredible, always helpful and very friendly. We loved everything Everything about the hotel is super! The bed was very comfortable, and there were plenty of large, thick towels and toiletries in the bathroom. We had lunch and dinner at their restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The breakfast was very very very good, I think the best of my life !!!!

Nestled on a picturesque hill overlooking the valley we got some breathtaking views of Gstaad from our room. The hotel is built in the Alpine style with wood furnishings and old world charm. We ate at their terrace restaurant La Bagatelle which was a fantastic experience of traditional Swiss alpine food. The rooms were large and comfortable.

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The rooms are great, very relaxing and comfortable. The breakfast spread in the morning is a great start to the day, and if you don't feel like going downstairs they'll bring breakfast to your room for no extra charge. I highly encourage getting a room with a view (extra charge, but worth it) and having breakfast brought up to you in the morning. It is the perfect start to they day. The staff is friendly and helpful. I rarely eat at the restaurant in hotels, but I had a craving for some homemade german schnitzel and spaetzle, the chef was happy to make this off menu item for me and my wife.

The town of Gstaad is nice but very pricey. I'm not going to mark the hotel off for this, but just realize that Gstaad is limited in what it offers. For our honeymoon, that is what we were looking for. There is a great train-station to connect you to the rest of the country.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. Costs more, but very worth it. One goes to Switzerland for the scenery, so...

The rooms are very basic and you could probably book a similar room in a different city for 40-60 Euros a night. However this hotel is not about the quality of the rooms or flat screen tvs. Its about receiving the best personal treatment in the hospitality business. The location of the hotel and the view is just perfect. The hotel staff are as professional and friendly as you can possibly have in any hotel. The french chef makes this place magicial. You can have the best food you ever had in this hotel but be prepared to pay for it. Dont consider staying at this hotel if you are on a budget but if you can afford it, it will be a stay to remember.
