“Top class hotel on every level”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We have just spent 3 nights at this fantastic hotel over Christmas. The whole hotel is beautifully designed. The Spa was inviting especially once the sun went down. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Our cases were brought up in the gondelbahn and arrived at the hotel the same time as us and the same efficiency applied to going home this morning, no waiting around. The food was fantastic. We mixed and matched from their Christmas Eve menu and then had the full Christmas meal last night, fantastic. Breakfast had a large selection of food to choose from and the bar food at lunch time was tasty and arrived promptly and hot. Melchsee Frutt has updated their Gondelbahn this year and with new car parks, everything was so much easier for getting up to the resort.

This is not a cheap option, it is a 4 star superior hotel, but it was definitely worth it.

Room Tip: Lake side rooms have the best views

The hotel is modern and comfortable. Rooms are clean and large.
The kitchen is quality and fast, but afmoshere of hotel is TENSE!!!!
The smails of staff are artificial. We don't like one arrogant, he worked on the third floor.
He was noisy and disturbed the peace in the hallway, he don't speak german and absolutely english - typical Portuguese.
The hotel need quality personal for housekeeping!!!

What a great experience in the middle of nowhere!
This is a wonderful hotel in a very nice mountain area.
Right from the beginning you feel very welcome. The reception staff is extremly friendly and helpfull, the bar keeper is great - we had a fun time drinking some local speciality called....I forgot. GREAT!
The SPA has all you need, great corners to relax and to look out in the wonderful mountains.
Definitely a place to go back, great experience!
Swiss hospitality at it's best! Loved it!

The Frutt Lodghe & Spa is not only located in the middle of the nature and mountains, the hotel is a pearl from the architectonical perspective. The used materials are wood & stone and give to the hotel a warm atmosphere. Location spectacular, Rooms & Lobby cosy, Wellness beautiful and food excellent. 5 points!

Room Tip: All rooms are equal. Very high standard. Like heaven.

Wanted to take some time off... we found a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the mountains.
Great address, great location, great staff and excellent service in general.
Our room was close to 40 meters square with a great view over the frozen lake. As the village does not allow car in winter, there is no traffic and therefore no noise what so ever. A real paradise...
Room offered a king bed, a big desk, and a great bathroom with a great italian shower and a separate bathtube.

Hotel is brand new, and therefore spotless. The staff is extremely friendly and having a drink at the bar after a long day skiing is a must.

Food at the restaurant was very good.

I recommend this hotel at 200%.

Will be back soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room "lake side"
