“Majestic Switzerland”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The Central Residence Hotel (ok it's a terrible name), located above Leysin high in the Swiss Alps is a large family run hotel, The rooms are clean, yet basic, with great views over the nearby mountain range. My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this location during August (2012), and found the hotel staff welcoming and helpful. The evening meals in the large tastefully decorated dinning area, were varied and enjoyable, sadly the bar (which is situated in the reception area) was less than adequate with perhaps no more than two Swiss beers to choose from, yet there's a reasonable choice of local wine on sale. The actual town of Leysin (where French is the prefared language is typically picturesque, with many Swiss chalets, and a range of friendly cafe / bars. The hotel has an indoor pool and facilties for the younger guests. To conclude I'd gladly recomend the Central Residence Hotel to family, friends, and business colleagues.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel have an incredible view, and with a balcony each is well furnish...

where to start...on reading reviews before going somewhat concerned...

However....

Hotel in a beautiful position

Staff were all helpful and friendly, especially the young lady at the reception, who spoke really good english, better than our attempts at French and German, she also ran the bar and dealt with all types of general enquiries - and was an absolute gem, all reception personnel very helpful, where people may have had a problem may have been the dining room as most staff did not speak much english, but we managed our way around, and a few pigeon French words helped.

Food was of a good standard, and menu changed daily

There are no facilities in the room for drinks, so be aware

The rooms were clean and tidy and the bathrooms looked like they have recently been upgraded - views from the front were superb.

Yes there were children at the hotel, and no more noisy than one would expect, they were english, and well behaved in the restaurant, and in general, yes they are noisy sometimes but these are fun times, and caused no problems to us or others

Breakfast was very good - be aware they cater for most tastes, but if you are not prepared to try Continental food, eat out

Overall great place

Stayed in this hotel with a school ski trip. They crammed the pupils in 5 per room, but they blame the travel company. Food was excellent, plenty of variety to suit all tastes. Pool was good and facilities are good for a group of teenagers. However, they do put the general public in among the students with the inevitable complaints about noise. Staff were very helpful.

When booking this hotel we expected just that: A rather simple hotel in a small alpine resort in Switzerland. This was obviously a mistake. It is in fact a large resort for kids/teenagers groups, trying to look like a hotel. You can easily imagine the consequences in term of quietness and general noise level, especially if your room, like ours, is located above a group of very excited kids all too happy to shout, run and party until late (and again from early...) while their coaches have drinks at the bar.
Add a not too impressive architecture, some torn out furniture in the common areas, expensive rooms, and noisy road engines removing the snow at 5 in the morning in front of the hotel (the latter admittedly not the fault of the management!) and you can imagine that it is quite difficult to recommend this "3 stars superior" place.
To be honest though the rooms themselves are rather large and correctly equipped, the swimming pool is nice, there is sauna, the location is good, and, after complaining at check out for the multiple inconveniences, we got a substantial discount from the front staff, which, although fully justified, was nevertheless appreciated.

We went on a Christmas break with Travelsphere .The room was ok apart from a hole in the sheet. plenty of hot water and towels .The staff were not rude they didn,t speak to us.The food we were given was not the same as everyone else .christmas eve we were given a slice of turkey meat from a tin 1 spoon of mash 1 spoon of grated raw veg .Christmas day meal was a beef caserole or veal that was red in the middle with carrot and shredded raw veg .Boxing day was quater chicken 1 spoon of mash 1 spoon of grated raw veg. The 4th night we were given half cooked pork chopped potato cubes and no veg at all.They started clearing breakfast at 9.30 before we had even finished eating .The location was good but that is the only good thing about our holiday.hospitality amounted to nil. stay at your peril.no more travelsphere for me .

Room Tip: Get a room at the front.
