Recent guest reviews
The warmth of the welcome and the friendliness of our hosts and their staff at the Schweizerhof hotel made our sty especially memorable. Our upgraded south-facing room was warm, cosy and comfortable with lovely mountain and village views from its balcony. Breakfast, largely a buffet meal, catered for the widest variety of tastes. The waiter-service dinners featured an impressive (minimum) six courses, each with an alternative option, providing a range of delicious flavours. A tinkling piano background was a great bonus. With the bonus of a fine spa pool, a jacussi and sauna together with 'wellness' facilities make this four-star hotel a great holiday venue. Thank you hosts Benita and Medy.
Where do I start? This is one of the most wonderful hotels I have ever stayed in. It is a small family hotel, owned and run by Medy and Benita. We were on a short skiing holiday, stayed 5 nights, on half-board. As appropriate for the land of "The Sound of Music", the excellent and friendly service "starts at the very beginning". We arrived at the bus station at the edge of Saas Fee, a quick phone call and within 5 minutes Luis was outside and put our bags in the car for the short ride to the Schweizerhof. We were welcomed by Benita, check-in took 5 minutes. Ola at reception was most friendly and helpful. We were brought to the bar for a welcome drink, and were shortly relaxing in the spa. By 8pm we were sitting for the first of our sumptuous meals at Schweizerhof. Our room was beautiful - we were upgraded to a south-facing room with veranda. The view in the morning was wonderful (see photo). The room and indeed all the hotel was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Bed was the usual european twin bed arrangement, very comfortable, firm mattresses. Spacious bathroom with full bath. Separate WC - an idea more hotels should consider! The spa was great - nice pool and plenty of relaxation areas etc. Bar is small and most welcoming, and any time we looked in there seemed to be a nice "buzz". The restaurant - superlatives fail me. We were taken care of for most of our stay by a really nice waitress, Yin. Buffet breakfast was the perfect start to the day - plenty of very good food and fresh coffee to prepare for a few hours on the slopes. Every morning on our table was a short newsletter which included the weather forecast and menu for dinner. Most interesting, the front page was a form of epistle by the local minister for tourism, who is also a pastor. This was a most interesting and really intriguing touch! Dinner each night was excellent. The 6-course menu changed completely every day and from amuse bouche to desert, every bite was really good. Wines ..... Medy is an oenologist and Schweizerhof has an extensive cellar mainly of local wines. We tried a different one each night on the recommendation of the sommelier and all were excellent. Entertainment during dinner centres on a wonderful Sicilian pianist who has an endless eclectic repertoire. Each night, Medy ran a wheel of fortune - be careful with this, I won a prize, one hour working with the service team for breakfast. Medy is a lovely singer and entertained us on a few evenings, including a memorable Yodel. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the nursery slopes. The hotel car goes up and down regularly, and Luis was available at very short notice
Our family with 2 kids stayed for 10 days in this charming but still high class hotel. Besides skiing and wellness we enjoyed the culinary hospitality at breakfast and outstanding gourmet dinner every day. Our kids integrated into the living style of the hotel very quickly due to the kids facilities, the SPA and most importantly due to the very open minded and welcoming hotel owners. We can highly recommend Schweizerhof in Saas-Fee for all like minded guest as we are.
Very relaxing short break in Saas Fee in the Schweizerhof. For those who like skiing in high altitude and enjoy late afternoon swimming pool and jacuzzi. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the hotel well located and nice. Good fresh orange for the breakfast.
We spent a week at Hotel Schweizerhof - our third return. Once again it did not disappoint. Benita (the owner) greeted us warmly and did all she could to make our stay enjoyable. It is clear that hospitality is in her DNA - part of the reason we return to this hotel. Whilst everything about this hotel is delightful, the food is a real standout. We signed up for the half board and it was a feast for our eyes and taste buds every morning and night. There are always healthy options on offer so that you don't over indulge. A big thank you to Aleksandra who looked after us in the restaurant each night. The spa is also very good with both adult only and family facilities. We look forward to our fourth visit.
We just stayed here for one night before climbing one of the Peaks the next day. Thus bear in mind that this Review is only representive for a one night stay. But it get's the full Rating as it just does right what a 4 star Hotel should do! Was stood out was the friendly welcome. Without checking I feel confident to claim that this place is a Family run place which These days can be unique, however noticeable as you immediately feel welcomed. The Food at the Restaurant is delicious and do try the local wine recommendations. The style of the Restaurant is a bit out of place for our taste, yet this is personal. The rooms have a nice modern touch and you get the Impression that they are trying to Keep up with the changing styles of Hotels. The SPA I would say has recently been updated, the pool and perhaps also the bathroom of our room still Need to get the refresh. Having said that though, this did not disturb us one bit. All in all, a really enjoyable stay and by the way a fantastic view of the Alalinhorn and the glacier from our top floor room, which I highly would recommend. one last comment, for Swiss Standards, this Hotel is fantastic value for Money!
From the moment we were welcomed by the owners this was a very special week in a special hotel. The service, hospitality and atmosphere was wonderful. My wife and I and 6 yr old daughter have recently returned from a half term break and it was brilliant. The hotel has an amazing spa, swimming pool and fitness centre. Our room was very good. We were kindly upgraded and had two rooms to ourselves with a separate external door so security was fine for the family. Beds were comfy but all the fresh air made you sleep well anyway. The food was wonderful and such a broad selection for breakfast. We booked bed and breakfast and went out at night to other restaurants but having experienced dinner on our last night we would return and book half board. The service, from picking you up at the bus station, to taking you to the slopes in the morning in their electric taxis, was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and made for a relaxing stay. Afternoon tea was great, but made you full for evening meal. All in all a wonderful week and we would recommend this highly.
My husband, 9 year old daughter and I have just returned from a fantastic week skiing in Saas Fee. The schweizerhof was a great hotel in a fantastic central yet quite location in this beautiful village. The staff were exceptional during our stay, from the welcoming arrival, attentive dining staff, quick efficient house keeping and the driver who used to take us directly to the slopes (even though it was a short walk to it). Food was fantastic, everyday the menu was well thought out and balanced. I loved breakfast too, a great choice!!! The dining room atmosphere was always relaxed and ran like clockwork. The boot room was hassle free, it never got too busy. Lovely touches such as a news letter on your breakfast table every morning, drinks on arrival, a farewell gift on departure and such friendly helpful staff. It was my husbands birthday whilst we were away and the hotel staff really made it special, thank you. The hotel managers were excellent always taking the time to make sure everything was going well and ask about your day. The spa area is fantastic with super views of the slopes which was a real treat after being on the slopes. We noted that various guests were returning visiters, which says it all. Thank you for a great holiday.
Good hotel for families with an indoor kid's playroom including a playhouse, table tennis, small slide and a babyfoot. Also they have a swimming pool accessible for kids with a shallow end and a seperate area with a spa for adults. They have free shuttle buses to the slopes which run every 30 minutes. However, depending when you are coming back it can get crowded so best to reserve. The food was good and varied so was it was worth taking the half-board for us. Breakfast was very good as well with a choice of continental and english breakfast. Downsides are that not all staff speak English, so sometimes communication is difficult and the service can be incredibly slow at the restaurant. The room amenitites were not altogether well thougt out either: no tea and coffee machine in the room, poor quality bath products (one soap dispenser for hair and body in a 4 star hotel) and the house-keeping was rather disorganised. We found this hotel to be good but very pricey (even at tea time: a tea costs 7.50CHF).
Friendly welcome, competent and most helpful staff, beautifully furnished, delightful dining room, excellent cuisine and superb breakfast buffet, huge playroom for kids of all ages, good location, taxi service, spacious bedrooms with balcony and sitting area - what more can you wish for - just perfect !
