Nestled amid breathtaking nature at the foothills of the Fribourg pre-Alps and a stone’s throw from the medieval city of Gruyeres, Hotel de Gruyères promises an unforgettable stay driven by authentic Swiss experiences and tradition.
Right from its early beginnings as a 1950’s spa retreat to its current status as a top destination in Switzerland, Hotel de Gruyères has always been rooted in offering tranquillity and comfort. One of the hotel’s highlights is its breakfast buffet, which serves as an ode to the region. “The majority of our breakfast products are locally sourced, and some are even homemade,” the hotel’s spokesperson Noémie Baeriswyl adds. It perfectly sets the mood for the day with a rich buffet of cold and hot culinary delights, ensuring you are fuelled for adventures or business alike.
From standard rooms to superior quarters and multiple-bed options, Hotel de Gruyères caters to all kinds of travellers. Its versatility makes it a hot spot for corporate retreats, as well as for group outings ranging from clubs to orchestras.
The hotel distinguishes itself by being the sole wellness provider in Gruyères. Guests can indulge in a variety of services from massages, saunas, and steam baths to a well-equipped gym area. In warmer months, the panorama terrace becomes a hub for yoga classes followed by the scrumptious, regional brunch.
With two state-of-the-art seminar rooms added in 2016, the hotel successfully blends business with leisure. Special packages that include discounted room rates make it ideal for guests looking to fully immerse themselves in the region while taking care of business.
When it comes to dining, Gruyères itself is a well-known gem, and the hotel fully embraces this. The dishes are now served in ‘La Table des Chevaliers’ next door, which offers everything from fondue and raclette to roast beef. But make sure to save room for dessert, the undisputed highlight of the house.
Amid natural beauty and traditions, Hotel de Gruyères stands as a testament to Swiss hospitality at its finest.
