I had a sausage which was great, I recommend it! the service was fast and the food cheap! it is great for when you finish skiing or hiking, because it's right at the bottom of the mountain! the restaurant has a beautiful view of both the no gain and the town!

The service is perhaps best described as grumpy. There are no bank or credit cards accepted and the food that we had was very poor with stale bread and very little choice. In the middle of the ski season this restaurant in a wonderful place was nearly empty. After eating there it was quite easy to understand why.

We arrived at the Au Bel Air after a 10 minute walk (with luggage) from the Leysin-Feydey train station. For anyone not able to walk some hilly roads while hauling luggage, a taxi is the best option.

This hotel is owned and operated as a family business and feels as such. The location was beautiful, Leysin is a ski resort town, and the hotel was right next door to the ski lift. Within easy walking distance are many small shops, restaurants, and a grocery store. The host was very kind and ensured we had a good experience.... More

I spent a month here. Dominique and his staff were amazing hosts - friendly, prompt and helpful. If we needed anything, they would make it happen. The hotel was always clean. I loved having a "home base" at Au Bel Air, traveling all day and coming back each evening to home-cooked food. Oh, how I miss this place!
