We stayed at the Gstaadterhof for 2 nights. The rooms were of decent size and very clean. All rooms have a balcony and a spacious bathroom including bathtub. The furniture is solid and has next to the beds a sofa and a couch table and a chair and a desk. The beds in our double room were two single beds, pushed together. Each The design is a bit to frumpy for my taste (a lot of wood, a beige carpet and terra cotta red sofa and cushions). On the plus side does the room provide a spacious mirrored cabinet and a wardrobe with enough space to nicely store all your cloth away, so you don't have to live out of your suitcase.
The hotel has a large wellness area. In the wellness area, the sauna is free, the rest is not. If you want to use the sauna no reservation is necessary, but you need to tell reception 45min in advance to allow them to heat it up.

Breakfast is generous and focussed around continental breakfast. A huge variety of bread and rolls and good quality cheese and cold cuts are provided next to cereals, fruits and yoghurt. Fried, scrambled or poached eggs with ham or bacon are available upon request.

The restaurant belonging to the hotel is really good. The food is superb and the prices very reasonable (for Gstaad). Especially the menues are of great value. It must be one of the handful of restaurants in all of Switzerland where you will find a fully vegetarian 5 course menu offered. The portions are really big too.
The only downside is the sometimes weird humour of the staff. It is not unsual for them to make a jokes at rather unexpected times.

Just stayed at the Gstaaderhof for one night last week. Nice hotel, good location in the centre. Did not use much of the facilities but would say this is a good alternative if you look for something close to the centre of the village and the pedestrian area.

We had the unexpected opportunity to extend a Swiss business trip for a few days and wanted to visit the Gstaad region. Nothing is inexpensive in Gstaad, but the Gstaaderhof Swiss Quality Hotel seemed to provide the best balance of cost versus amenities. I must say we were very pleased with our decision. Much of what made our stay pleasant were the personal touches provided by the staff.

This started with our early arrival. Even though we didn't expect it, they were able to provide us with a clean room, which was great since we had been traveling since early morning. The room itself, while small, was clean, well furnished (bed was fine), and bright. We had no problems with sound from other rooms. Internet in the room was free.

The main focus of our visit to Gstaad was to hike. The substantial breakfast (extra at the time of booking) was a good value (tough to find in Gstaad). Between the breakfast and picking up half-price (day-old) pastries in Gstaad, we were well-fueled for our daily travels.

As a side note, we found the Gstaad Easy Access card a great bargain--36 CHF/3 days of public transportation was definitely a value compared to paying per ride. Even though many of the cable cars were not operating (late May) we still got our money's worth from the buses and rail travel.

The hotel's "Wellness Center" was great after a day of hiking. The sauna and steam room are well done and clean and, together with relaxing afterwards, were a perfect way to finish a day of hiking.

Even our departure was well-handled by the hotel. We departed well before breakfast started, but the night porter was able to gather up a reasonable breakfast (and coffee) for us (eaten in the dining room), and then insisted on driving us to the train station. (Though it would have been an easy (10') walk.)

All-in-all a very pleasant and comfortable stay. I feel that we got our money's worth, especially since we were Americans traveling in Switzerland with a very weak dollar.

1. Room : Simple and Functional - they were clean, modern and functional with web-tv in each room and a small sitting area with a small terrace (enough for 2 chairs and a table). The bathrooms were a little bit of a let down duw to their size but at least the showers were good and strong.

2. Food (half board) : Whereas breakfast is nothing astounding (except for the bread rolls, which are simply superb), the half-boar dinner is astounding. A 4-course meal (choice of 2 starters, a soup, 2 mains, desser or cheese) every night and the quality was on par with anything I've easten at the Palace, etc in Gstaad. Quality of meat was 1st-rate with Barberie Duck, Roasted Beef, etc all making appearances. At no point did you feel like you were getting a second-rate meal as you were half board. Furthermore, the Raclette and Fondue restaurant in the basement is amongst the best available - definitely try the champagne & truffle fondue. Definitely 5-star.

3. Location - not on the main pedestrian area but 2 minutes walk away. Gstaad isnt a ski-in ski-out town but the hotel has a ski bus service and the towns free ski-bus stops directly outside. Furthermore, tyhe hotel has a loarge garage underneath.

4. Kids - made to feel most welcome, especially at the fantastic restaurant. There is a billiards room, a young kids play room and an older kids play room. The staff were very helpful.

5. Service - also impecable at a 4-star level. Not as good as a good 5-star but impressive considering the bargain price point.

Summary - this hotel is excellent. The only let down are the slightly boxy rooms nad the small bathrooms but this is reflected in the price. We have lready booked to go back next year.

After spending xmas at the Imperial in Vienna, I decided to take a trip to Gstaad with my girlfriend for NYE week. Every nice hotel was booked, so we went for a central 4 star at 450 CHF a night, which in my books, should have been AT LEAST decent.

To be clear, I am as used to staying in palaces around the world, than roughing it up in dumps.

They gave us a room at arms length of the elevator, with paper thin walls where the neighbor whispering to his wife sounds like he's in our room and where kids wake you up 3 rooms down the hall while they're still in their bed.

The bed also doubles up as a seesaw, which means that if one person is on the wrong side of the bed when the other gets into it, they have a good chance of getting bounced out the window.

After 2 nights, I'm sleeping on the floor (picture attached) to try to give my girlfriend a couple hours sleep. It's day 3 in Gstaad, and we still haven't felt rested enough to go skiing.

THANK GOD I have a friend giving us a room in his house here so we can finally start to enjoy the stay, but piece of advice, avoid this hotel like the plague NEVER stay here!

PS: For those of you who might think I'm exagerating, but I'm unfortunately not...
