The Restaurant de l'Etoile has two different servings: Classic and Gastronomic. The latter provides a nice set of seasonal dishes, and the classic restaurant has a secret dish that is to die for: the Hamburger. Excellent service and homey atmosphere top it up. Nice place to visit after having visited the SPA!

A charming hotel with clean comfortable room. Only issue we had was the street traffic. It is such a small village, but the hotel is right on the main road and there is more traffic than would have thought. We enjoyed a delicious fondue dinner and a very nice breakfast, the staff was friendly and very helpful.

The room was nice but smelled badly and was a bit dusty. Toiletries were poor and smelled like Fanta! Also it was a bit noisy as the room overlooked on the parking lot and the street. The mattress is old and too soft definitely needs to be changed. The good point was the service, the staff was very nice and... More

We were looking for an hotel to spend the night after going to the Bains de Charmay. After a disappointing attempt at a booking in a larger hotel, I was very happy to discover this small gem. It is a family run hotel with very nice wood-lined rooms and very modern bathrooms. The cheese fondue was outstanding, as one would... More

We stayed at Hotel de l’Etoile for 5 nights. The hotel is situated in Charmey town centre, right in the middle of Gruyeres, Broc and Jaun, which was where we wanted to explore. Didn’t want to stay in Gruyeres town itself as it was too touristy. We chose this hotel as it was part of the La Gruyere Passport offer... More

What a great little hotel! We were slightly confused when we walked in and there was no lobby, but the woman behind the bar was very helpful with getting us our room.
