We didn't stay there but we had lunch at the restaurant. Of course we had the fondue, which came with bread. We ordered boiled potatoes and dry cured beef, as well. We could have as much fondue as we like. The fondue is what is known as moitié & moitié - half cheese and half white wine. It was very...

Basic clean hotel in the historical city, really felt in the old Europran town. Room space jsut enough, though I may prefer a small writing desk. Services weere prompt. The restaurant foods were authetic, enjoyed the fodue. Not a place for shopping, you can only find the shop selling cheese and chocolate. Walking around the area was a great enjoyment....

Our good friends in Switzerland hooked us up with the wonderful Edelweiss room, four poster bed, and fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. Magic. We were on a whirlwind tour of Switzerland, and coming from Zurich, where everything runs like clockwork, it could be a bit disconcerting to run into this country approach to hotels. But it's the country....

We did not stay at the Hotel but we ate at there restaurant. - There were flies everywhere - Fondue was not good, although I see reviews where people think it is good, I was with Swiss students and they said it was bad fondue. - Macaroni du Chalet was very good.

Indeed, centrally located, minutes away from the castle. Only 8 rooms, rustic in appearance, nice furniture, but despite their claim internet service was not working. Elevator so small that it fit only one person and one bag. Breakfast was rather standard and not really good. Why serve merengue and cream in the morning?). Staff friendly.

The hotel is located in the middle of the small village of Gruyeres, which makes it very conveinent to walk around, visit the shops, castle, museums, and enjoy drinks at the several different bars and restaurants throughout the village. Parking is available at no charge at the lot closest to the town, which made it nice..you just need to let...

While the town of Gruyeres is wonderful, with a lot to see and do, the hotel is more basic than i expected given the price we paid. Our room was on the top floor, with a large double bed and a small window with a view over the main street. The main problem was that as the room was small...

I live in Switzerland and I love cheese fondue, so I went to many restaurants for cheese fondue. But I've never been to the restaurant who charge me for pickeled vegetable(cornichon in French). It was not an additional, I had to pay for the first service. I was so shocked and felt a bit sad. It's a pity because taste...

We booked this hotel because it offered a foom for a family with a child. For some reason, most Swiss hotels do not provide extra bed in a double room So it must be a large room and we were given a "junior suite". The room was impressively big, clean and relatively comfortable. Despite the recent renovations some of the...

We stayed in the Hotel de Ville at the end of November for one night. We just arrived in Gruyere and looked for a hotel when we got there. Hotel de Ville is lovely and I can recommend it. Our room was comfortable and we had a lovely view over the fields. The breakfast was typical of the area and...

“Book early. There are few places to stay in Gruyere. It's a very small village. Also, parking can be an issue and you'll likely want the lot close to the village entrance, so be patient, it's crowded.”
