“Must eat at the La Bagatelle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Last week, we were holidaying in Gstaad for the weekend, we dove there without any reservation & the Hotel Grand Chalet came recommended. Unfortunately, it was booked up fully, but I MUST recommend their restaurant "La Bagatelle" where we decided to eat & begin our weekend. Our decision was maybe impetuous, but I certainly was not sorry for this unplanned meal that we had here. Firstly, I was very impressed by the care & attention that the server on our table took to explain his recommendations for lunch. It took us almost a good 12-15 minutes to select from his recommendations, but I noticed very particularly that the server and also his helper who was a very pleasant young lady, went to that extra bit, to delicately explain their chef's handiwork. It actually put us all at so much ease that I can compare his explanations of the dishes we selected from, to a smooth elixir or some vintage wine that you savor before you partake of a good meal.
We began the meal with an Entrecôte (Entrecôte de Boeuf) that was done so deliciously that it disappeared before we could have our second glass of wine.
Our entrees were a whole Chicken (Poulet De Bresse) & an outstanding Sea Perch (Loup De Mer Outhier).
The Whole chicken was, as the name suggested, cooked whole with the skin crisp & the flesh juicy & succulent. I really appreciate the way he carved the portions & brought them to our plates. We savored each cut as he placed them with his unique flair for us to devour.
The fish was an amazing piece of culinary art that arrived on our table. The whole Sea Perch was caked into a pastry shell abou

Breathtaking view, nice and big rooms with terrace, very welcoming staff
You fell a home taking a tea in the typical mountain style decorated hall
Good place to go in winter or summer, Gstaad is a very hype winter station and you can cruise some stars walking around

I stayed with my family in this hotel last Jun. We booked one JS conected with onother room for the kids. I strongly recomend this hotel for every one who is looking for calm location and enjoy the landscape. The tow rooms have balacony with the best view on Gstaad. All staff have shown a wanderful service for us . We felt as we are staying in our own home - maybe more !
It's resturant is one of the best in Switzerland.


We stayed there tow weeks and still we are thirsty to go once again!

My wife and I had only one night to stay in Gstaad, and chose this hotel based on itsTripAdvisor reviews. It did not disappoint us. We had a little trouble finding it because there were no signs, and the drive was narrow and a bit steep. But once we got there the hotel was a lovely Swiss chalet on a hillside with very scenic views. A bellman appeared as we got out of our car and whisked our luggage off. The receptionist smiled brightly as we came inside and graciously escorted us to our room on the second floor. Our luggage was already in the room. The room was spacious and had a lovely balcony looking over the town and valley, with mountains in all directions. There was complimentary wifi for our iPad. The dinner on the terrace was upscale and delicious. It was very attentively served as we watched darkness descend on the valley. The weather was unusually warm that day and we were disappointed that the hotel did not have a fan for us to use in the room that night, but it did cool down nicely later on and we had a comfortable night's sleep. The breakfast in the morning was very bountiful, and the waitress actually cooked some fried eggs to order for us. All-in-all a very pleasant stay.

I stayed at this hotel for one night about ten days ago, and I have no complaints whatsoever. The reception staff was extremely friendly and courteous. She even walked me to two different rooms and gave me a choice, explaining to me that one of the two rooms available has better views, but may be just slightly noisier (since it is close to the restaurant). I ended up choosing Room 122, which is huge and comfortable. The view from the balcony is still quite nice, even though not as grand as the marvelous view (of the surrounding mountains and valleys) from some of the rooms located at the front of the hotel. I did not care for the style of the decoration of the rooms (I would call it very nice comfortable grandma style), but they all seem to be very spacious, clean and comfortable. Wifi was included, and the breakfast was great.

The only downside I can think of, about the hotel, is that it is located on a little hill. If one does not have wheels, it may be a little bit of a hike to go back to hotel from the middle of town.

I would definitely recommend this hotel with no hesitation.

Room Tip: If you like beautiful mountain views, be sure to ask the check-in staff for a room with a view!

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.
