We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in Saas Fee winter walking on well prepared paths in breathtaking scenery. This hotel with its welcoming hosts is a splendid base for a stay in this lovely area either in summer or winter. Centrally located and excellent value and with a mouthwatering 4 course dinner every evening, a half board stay is highly recommended.

We only used the Gletschergarten for dinner

One of about 20 restaurants offering traditional swiss cuisine in Saas Fee, but not quite as pricey as some.

Had French Onion soup and Cheese Fondu with my buddy who I'd gone skiing for the weekend with. Food was good, the white wine (a local Vallais regional wine called Fendant) was great.

We were served by a waiter who made us laugh as he was so stern and direct - but he made us feel welcome.

The restaurant had an odd layout - like eating in a railway carriage and had a kind of faded 80's charm - some might say it needed redecorating!! my friend and I enjoyed the night, I dont think Id take my wife to impress her though, she'd be commenting on the decor most of the evening!

We found the hotel charming ,the ultimate Swiss experience, great food and authentic hospitality . The owner, Wendelin Bauman and all the staff are very friendly.We really enjoyed the tobogganing evening.The accommodation is very central,very comfortable and keenly priced.The reason we would go back, however, is the superb hospitality on offer, especially from Wendelin and Catherine.Not only were we warmly welcomed with a complimentary drink and a bar of chocolate in each room, but also received a lovely Saas Fee tea towel and a lovely bottle of Swiss wine with a personal explanation about its origins from Wendelin, on our departure.This level of hospitality is priceless especially in the rush,rush,no time to chat mentality of today.A little gem.

Despite suffering from 70's decor and a generally worn out look, this hotel is spotlessly clean and any lingering doubts are soon dispelled by the friendly owner and staff. The food is also good, and the only lasting pause for thought might be that the hotel is a modest walk from the ski lifts - no big deal in the morning, but after a hard days skiing a stop for refreshments is certainly needed to summon energy for the return journey!

A fantastic welcome from the owner, very personal service. Good central location but at night the noise from revellers on the street means a room at the back is a good idea. While the decor is authentic Swiss ski lodg the building is really showing its age and needs a little TLC. THe only building I've ever stayed in CH without double/treble glazing. Extremely poor sound insulation, especially between floors, and very tatty decor. Ripped and worn carpets in places, doorhandles falling off, and bathrooms in serious need of refurbishment.
So if you are looking for a Marriot -style hotel, look elsewhere. Thankfully there are many plus points: excellent food, very personal service, comfortable beds, good hot water with bath for apres-ski soak, and unbeatable location.
Can't quarrel on price either, though charging for tap water in the evening seemed a bit mean and out of character for the otherwise superb hospitality.
So if noise doesn't bother you, and you like old-fashioned things...this is definitely one to look at.
