Engadiner Boutique-Hotel GuardaVal
Ranked #3 of 16 Hotels in Scuol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The staff was extremly friendly and helpful and this is a large plus for this hotel. The rooms were perhaps not luxurious but the view is quite amazing if you have mountain view and a balcony. The breakfast was ok and the dining room has a nice mountain view. The hotel is connected to a spa through an underground passage. The spa is nice and relatively big with a number of different pools - although not very cozy or luxurious - but we did not try the saunas at all as kids were not allowed (kids allowed in pools after 11 am).

Room Tip: Mountain view with balcony

Thank you very much for your positive valuation. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. As the Engadin Bad Scuol do the therapies in the morning, kids have access to the bath only from 11.00 am until 9.30 pm. We would be pleased to welcome you again at the GuardaVal and send you best wishes from the Engadine.

We stayed for a romantic weekend in the "Engadiner Zimmer" and it could not have been more perfect.... the super friendly host and his whole staff made our visit in the swiss alps to a real amazing memory.
The athmosphere in the hotel is just beautiful. We thought the idea of the 'Passarelle' into the spa is done so clever and just carries you straight away into relaxing mood.
All the 'cuisine' has been amazing.... and we also took dinner in the 'gourmetrestaurant' which has been just another highlight of our stay.
All around we just loved our romantic weekend there....and we cant wait go come back again.

I took my partner here for a romantic birthday weekend. I chose it primarily based on the reviews here and I must confess to being disappointed with the overall experience. Our first impression was not good - we waited 20 minutes at the train station to be picked up as agreed and eventually had to call the hotel to be collected. The hotel itself is quite a nice building but it feels quite claustrophobic with no fewer that 3 (including one active building site which was a most unwelcome surprise) new buildings built in close proximity. While the terrasse and rooms still have reasonable views of the mountains, I certainly would not class them as anything special ..... indeed, there are certainly better value hotels in Scuol with nicer views of the mountains.
The service was fine but not at the level that I would expect for a 4 star hotel (especially one thats clearly trying to attain 5 star level given the prices). For example - the room has a note saying that the supplied carafe will be filled with water upon your arrival .... if you ask ..... I personally would expect this to happen automatically as part of the check in!
The hotel has its own sauna and spa(?) which we did not use. Instead, we chose to use the nearby Bad Scuol facility which we very much enjoyed. The price of this facility (excluding the Romische-Irisches Bad) is included in the room and the hotel is connected (through a somewhat mazy passage) directly to the Bad.
The highlight of the hotel is clearly the restaurant which offered 3-4-5 course menus. The food was of superb quality and beautifully presented. Having said that, I was again irked to be charged extra for water and tea / coffee ..... it seemed a little petty when paying almost CHF 500 per night on average for each of the 3 nights we stayed there!

Overall, we had an enjoyable experience in Scuol but we honestly feel that there are better value hotels for this price.

We thank you very much for your positive valuation about our restaurant and kitchen and for our included services like the Engadin Bad Scuol. Unfortunately the rooms in our 400 years old Engadine house are very charming but not the biggest. We do offer some extra large rooms and suites at the GuardaVal who might correspond more to the modern demands. Nevertheless we would be pleased to welcome you again someday to convince you of our service and our infrastructure.

We stayed there for a weekend beginning of March 2013 and I can only recommend this beautiful hotel!
Starting from a very friendly personal welcome after being picked up at the train station for free we could already enter our room around 11am. The room was in the old part of the house, which is carefully renovated, so that you can still see the original structure. It was nice and quite big, equipped with everything we needed - including bathrobes and towels for the sauna, fresh fruits, TV, a spacious cupboard, a safe and even a backpack for hiking (in case you don't bring one). The bathroom was not very big, but nice and clean and big enough for a comfortable shower. The room overlooked the village and the mountains on the other side of the valley.
Besides excellent service and a nice room the two big other "plus" are the restaurant and the bath. For dinner you can choose from a gourmet selection for a 3-, 4- or 5-course meal. If you wish to taste other wines than the ones recommended with the menue there is a small winery included in the restaurant where you will for sure several great options. Breakfast is served in the same room which stays surprisingly quiet also with almost all tables occupied. The buffet in the morning has literally everything you want for breakfast.
You can reach the Engadina bath directly from the hotel through a corridor linking the hotel with its partner hotel and the bath. Inside you have indoor and outdoor pools and hot springs plus a nice spa area.
To sum up a great hotel that is worth its price, you can definetly relax there and enjoy a beautiful holiday.

We loved our visit to Hotel GuardaVal while cross country skiing in the Engadine Valley. This place was amazing with underground network to sister hotel and then interior walkway to the Bogn Engiadina which was included in the price of our stay. We had a half board arrangement so 5 course dinner was included. The food presentation was first rate. Our room was roomy with comfortable bedding and the balcony afforded a view of the village and mountains. Staff was helpful. They have a lovely wine cellar with pricey wines.

overall great location of the hotel and tasteful rooms.
restaurant service and value for money I would rather only satisfactory. wines partly unfairly over-priced - same bottle in same village from the same producer in another good restaurant can be found nearly 30% cheaper.

This wonderful place is a must for someone, who a) likes comfort (very cosy but big rooms, newly renovated in Chalet chic style) b) likes to eat excellent (excellent kitchen for fine dining, daily changing menus) c) likes Spa's (direct access to the biggest Spas in Scuol, free entrence to these Spa's) d) needs an enjoyable time with a small baby (baby can sleep in room while parents dine with baby-phone in the restaurant).
All in all a very very friendly place, many details makes the visit in the hotel even more enjoyable (welcome drink, daily newspaper (swiss only) in front of room, very friendly staff!) We will go back for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view and balcony.
