“Very good family hotel”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We liked this hotel very much. We got 2 nice rooms with a lovely balcony. A view from the balcony was really charming. A breakfast was very nice and a staff friendly and (important!) English speaking.
It is only 30 minutes driving to Montreaux and Vevey.
Very recommended!

This is a family run hotel that has quite a few positive things about it. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Our room had a balcony with a lovely view. The hotel is very clean. It is in a good location in Leysin and close to some nice restaurants. The breakfast was adequate and the food fresh. Breakfast was inexpensive. There is on-site parking and on-site breakfast and bar. The wifi works. The drawbacks: No lift, no A/C (but windows and balcony door open) and the beds were hard (it's a Swiss thing).

Switzerland is expensive!

This hotel is good value by comparison to others in the area, and was even cheaper than a meal for two we had in a nearby restaurant!

We booked the hotel for a stopover on the third night of our tour through Europe down to the South of France. It's a basic hotel with very basic but clean rooms. The exterior is quite shabby, but like a lot of ski resorts would probably look better under several feet of snow. The hotel owner was very friendly and welcoming and laid on a fantastic buffet breakfast.

If the rooms were better furnished and redecorated then the hotel would have earned a 4 out of 5 from me.

Where to begin!!!! Having stayed in Leysin a number of times before, we have always opted for self catering as we thought it was cheaper. This time we opted for a hotel and what a good move it was. We stayed in a triple room which was more than adequate for the 3 of us, and very comfortable, with plenty of storage for our bulky ski wear etc. The buffet breakfast is excellent with enough variety to suit most tastes. It is a family run hotel and very welcoming, the owners are lovely and very helpful. There is a little bar which serves the best cheese fondue I have ever had and is very reasonable. There is a free bus every hour from right outside the hotel which takes you to the telecabins so very handy. Very well priced for B&B. Had a fantastic time and made very welcome, I am already planning next holiday and will definitely be staying here.

this is a great place, the owners are very nice and helpful, the little bar downstairs is charming and warm, and the bedrooms are really great. They also offer a very complete buffet breakfast in a dinning room with fantastic views

It's on the main road into Leysin, close to the old village centre, a 10-15 minute walk uphill to the telecabine, so maybe not ideal for skiing (which I wasn't), and 15-20 minutes from the cog-railway station. In the old part of the village there are some typical Swiss mountain-style restaurants.The rooms are simple. Mine had a balcony at the back of the building looking towards the mountains, which was nice, but otherwise it was quite basic.

My family and I (wife and 2 kids) just returned from a long weekend in Leysin. We stayed 3 nights at La Tour d'Ai. Even though the hotel is on the main road into Leysin, because we had a room on the back side of the hotel, the road noise was not a big deal. The room was small for the four of us, but we were not there to spend our time in the room. The room was clean, but the beds were not so comfortable. Free ski bus stop is right in front of the hotel. We would go back for another long weekend in Leysin at La Tour d'Ai. Breakfast was nothing special (although the view is nice), but adequate to get the day started.
