    Our opinion

    A stunning rural retreat with heaps of character and excellent four star service.

    Hotel description

    The four star boutique Hotel Alpenrose is situated just outside Gstaad, and has a traditional warm chalet feel and appearance. Wooden panelled exterior walls emerge from behind evergreen trees and support the peaked chalet roof. Inside, this style, synonymous with Switzerland, is continued into rooms with wooden floors, walls, and ceilings. The gourmet Azalée Restaurant serves traditional Swiss delicacies in an effortlessly elegant setting. Windows look out onto the iconic glacier-capped slopes of the Alps, while white table cloths and pink and red flowers preserve a more summery feel. On Thursday nights, dinner is accompanied by live piano music. Alternatively, guests can dine in Sammy’s Grill Restaurant on grilled meats, fondue, or Italian dishes. The lively Sammy’s Bar offers a relaxed place to unwind in the evenings. Perhaps begin your day at the boutique Hotel Alpenrose with a hew hours in the rustic spa; enjoy a massage from a Swiss expert, a dip in the Jacuzzi, or twenty minutes in the sauna. The guestrooms hold an abundance of authentic Swiss charm. Soft sheets and mattresses are accompanied by floral, intricate patterns and large windows, some of which have views on the nearby glaciers. Hotel Alpenrose welcomes families, offering cosy family apartments with mezzanine floors for the children. A self-contained chalet, sleeping groups of up to eight people, is situated just 200m from the main hotel building, tempting larger groups with the ultimate feeling of secluded privacy. All rooms, however, are identified by their comfortable ‘country’ atmosphere and design. The attractive Hotel Alpenrose is in an ideal location for a stopover near Gstaad as part of a Swiss rail holiday.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Gstaad is most famous for the hiking and skiing opportunities in the local mountainous area. However, it has much more to offer than this. The peaceful streets of the Shopping Mile are lined with boutique shops and picturesque cafes, sheltered under chalet balconies and adorned with hanging baskets and window boxes. More than 100 restaurants are available for lunchtimes and evening meals, offering a wide range of culinary styles and speciality dishes. Be sure to try some of the famous local fondue. Also use your time in Gstaad to experience some of the local trades, such as farming. Homely farmhouses dot the landscape, populated by thousands of Alpine cows. Visit Molkerei Gstaad to taste some of the 3,000 types of cheese that are produced in the area. Essential to any stay here, however, is a long walk over the Alpine paths and trails, linking together the mountain peaks, and uncovering pretty streams and sublime lakes.

    Sports nearby
