We stayed at the Grand Hotel Quellenhof for (unfortunately) only 2 nights as we were on a 3 week tour of Switzerland (we booked our hotels as we traveled). If only we'd known what a great place it was beforehand; we would have planned accordingly and booked it for much longer!
Firstly; we arrived at the hotel at night and it was just an amazing approach with the way the hotel was lit up. Our original fear was that the hotel and its staff may be a bit snobby (we arrived via the train and carrying our backpacks); but I don't think their service could have been any better even if we would have pulled up in a chauffeured Bentley and were dressed to the 9's. In our room were tasty sweets, a bottle of local liqueur, and a HUGE bowl of fruit. Our "Chef of Reception" (Ronny) was simply awesome.
Secondly; the room was great! We were in a 4th floor junior suite with balcony overlooking the park in front of the hotel. In our room were tasty sweets, a bottle of local liqueur, and a HUGE bowl of fruit. The bed was king sized (although 2 twins positioned together which is more common than not in EU) with fantastic linens; the balcony was cute in that Paris sort of way; and the bathroom had a deep soaking tub, separate shower and WC, and a great little TV in the wall. About 10 minutes after getting into the room, our butler (Andy), brought us champagne and even more sweets.
Finally; the spa is simply to die for and a reason that I want to return. It would take me too much space to go through all the things that are fabulous about it, but suffice it to say that it is the first time in years that I have actually relaxed and not thought about my stressful worklife (and we're all thriving for a better worklife balance).
As my title reveals; I WILL return probably over and over again.
Note: I am a Leader's Club member and booked my hotel directly through their site (lhw.com), but the hotel does have a web site from where you can book your rooms directly.
