“Nicest people in town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were greeted by the sweetest, most helpful staff I have ever encountered. Nice room, nice place. Dinner was okay, although the waiters were a bit in a frenzy and the place was not even full... I would come back.

Good hotel, very much appreciated by families with kids...therefore not pretty much ideal if you are looking for a calm place. However if you can cope with it: the rooms are clean and spacious the employees very kind and helpful. Breakfast as well as dinner were very good.

The rooms were average specially the economy ones which were like small boxes, but since some couples had children, 2 rooms were automatically upgraded which was very good. Rooms have very very low roofs , transparent bathroom doors and sleazy lamp shades. Excellent locatio, good indoor- outdoor pool and garden. Receptionist very helpful. Go for bigger and expensive rooms which are good. Good service in all. Breakfast was good too.

Room Tip: Choose bigger and expensive rooms which are good and not economical ones.

Coming back after a week with family in Alpine Lodge. This hotel is very comfortable, you nearly forget you have come to Gstaad for ski. All the service of a top hotel inside a chalet ! Even the food was excellent, we took half board and every evening we got a good surprise in the menu. Kids can choose from a special card and they get every day on their table all the little things they need to stay busy. For sure kids are very much welcome here ! I miss my morning cappuccino it was very good, today it is very difficult to find a good coffee in a hotel, you never know way you get but at Alpine Lodge coffee machine was like a Swiss watch ! Wat I expect also from a hotel is a dedicated service with attention especially with smile all the time and we got that. Our room was big and nice, we were 2 + 2 kids. And the room was on the ground floor and we had an open door to the garden were the children could play. In the room we had also the use of a free iMac and the hotel give you also an iPad to keep you busy while you can take a drink at the bar. In the afternoons you get free tea and there is everyday a desert also provided with your tea during 3pm and 5pm. We also used the pool everyday and the wellness area, all the place was clean and nice. Hotel had also a shuttle service to drop you everyday at the ski point, but we used our own car. It is very near the hotel 5 min drive either you can ski to Gstaad or go to Saanenmöser. If you look for international cuisine in the city you won't find much choice but still you will find a Chinese restaurant or Pizza. The rest is very traditional and local taste. During lunch time in Gstaad you have to hurry because you won't find to eat after 2PM except at the local supermarket. Those in need of classy shopping won't be disappointed all the big brands are in Gstaad and it is not a surprise if you see a famous star walking around. On the whole we are very satisfied and the only little regret I had was about the pillow and no minibar in the room but for the rest all was excellent. Thank you to the hotel management and staff we will come back !

Overall:
Imagine one of those movies where a bunch of friends go away for a skiing holiday and they stay at this picturesque perfect town inside a perfectly cosy hotel...thats Alpine Lodge for you.

Welcome:
I went away with colleagues from work for a skiing weekend. We arrived and were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff. Everything was handled with a smile and we were given a glass of bubbly once we had all arrived. Perfect Welcome!

Rooms:
I had a single room which was cozy, comfy and had everything I needed. Free Internet, space to put my things away, clean bathrooms looked fairly new, apple on my pillow..all there. The only minor thing I would mention about my room is that the french doors faced towards the front of the hotel and straight into the small car park - so no chance of opening the window because anyone could have wandered in. Seeing as we were in the low minus degrees I did not care to do so anyone but could be an issue for fresh air fanatics.

Food:
When we arrived late on Friday we all gathered in the super cozy lounge with open fireplace and ordered some food and cocktails. I had no food but it looked fab, chunky sandwiches and fresh salads rolled up. The cocktail I had was certainly worth its money (expensive as everything in Switzerland is though). Just sitting by the fire on the comfortable sofas chatting was relaxing and the bar staff was fun, friendly and accommodating.
Breakfast was great, too. Buffet style with everything you could imagine, meats, cheeses, eggs, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, breads, cakes, croissants..just anything you would want. Same goes for drinks and juices. I think only a highly picky person could fault the choice.

Staff:
The entire stay was made easy because the staff did all they could to make sure we were happy and well served. There is a free and flexible transport to the skiing lifts and they pick you up when you call them, you can rent the equipment in house or down the road, they provide you with the skiing passes and always everything is done with a smile. I dont think I ever saw any of them get stressed, annoyed or in any way rude. They have been so helpful which is not a given these days.

All in all I would def go back and I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
