We stayed in this hotel for one night. Let's start with the positives the room is OK clean and has the old school feel, bathroom is spacious and clean. So definitely can spend a night there. But, keep in mind that this is not really a hotel but rather a building where people live. Hotel is on the last floor... More

First of all there is very little parking space in front of the hotel. After that it just got worse. The rooms are small, the beds very small. The bathroom shower cubical was too small for an adult to use. No aircon, and our room was in the roof, so very hot. The standard of fabric maintenance and cleanliness was... More

The hotel staff was always missing - making checking in and out a long ordeal. Room not as advertised - we were put in someone's apartment rather than the double room we booked & the staff couldn't even muster up a bar of soap for our bathroom. Nice breakfast. Spa pass is only for 3 hours.

Great hosting, special thanks to the manager and staff who made our stay very pleasant. This is charming hotel with 2 restaurants: a pizzeria and a brasserie. My husband and I had dinner at their brasserie twice and the food was fantastic. Good location, right in the heart of the town of Charmey, at walking distance from the newly build... More

We stopped off here for a quick coffee before walking down the Jaunschlucht to the Maison Cailler in Broc. Great sunny terrace, good service and nice coffee too. Would recommend this place, as well as the walk down the gorge ...

Nice location, good for excursions like hiking and in winter probably skiing. A bit pricey but for Swiss standards ok. We only stayed 1 night, reached late and left very early, so can't commend on food. We entered through one of he restaurants and it looked quite nice and rustic. Service was good, I had booked this hotel through Switzerland... More
