Set if the medieval town of Gruyeres, the Hotel de Ville is situated in the middle of the main cobblestone street, which is beautiful. We visited for lunch on a sunny afternoon in July and sat at an outside table. We were attended to within a few minutes and had some cold water and glasses brought out as we were looking at the menu. Being in Gruyeres we all wanted to try a dish using the local cheese. Two of us had the cheese and ham toastie and the others had a quiche and salad made from Gruyere cheese. The dishes were delicious and did not disappoint. A bit expensive for lunch but about average in Switzerland (about 24 CHF each dish) but the setting and opportunity to taste the local cheese made it worth it. Nice wine and sharing a dessert was a nice way to finish our lunch.
Thank Sandra59_2012

The snail-like service at this outdoor restaurant caused us to miss seeing the museum. It took an hour and a half. They pushed us to get a fondue pot per person, and then it came in one pot. When the three of us who were eating fondue asked for more bread, it took a long time to get another basket, and then we were charged for it. Were we to eat it with our fingers? cokes were over $4 US each. It was very good fondue, exorbitantly priced, and dismal service. But we did sample Gruyere in Gruyeres.

Had a robust lunch with raclette, potato, silver onions, salted cucumber and bread. A really filling lunch and what could be called a genuine swiss dish. The only downside was a bunch of noisy chinese tourists that ruin the tranquility. Not the restaurants fault though.

I visited the restaurant for lunch as our driver suggested me to taste Cheese Fondue, as the cheeses were made by local people. Place is very beautiful, like a small village in the mountain and the staff was also nice. She can speak English well.

Hotel building looks nice with wooden interior. I didn't stay in the hotel but if I have a chance to go to Switzerland again, for sure I will stay here.
Thank Dynichiro

Me and my wife went these in July. We wanted a hotel in Gruyeres which was affordable, without really compromising on comfort.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable and well furnished. I use the word rooms because we actually experienced two rooms. In the first room, the next door neighbor was very noisy, even during the night. We mentioned it to the owner, M. Dumas and he installed us in a new room right away. You can't get better attention than this. The second room was even better than the first one. So kudos to M. Dumas for a situation well managed.

The hotel offers breakfast as well. The food is very varied and fresh. I affectionate yogurt, cheese, musli and dried fruits in the morning and the hotel was able to satisfy me.

We also took our end of day meals at the hotel as well. The food is high quality and affordable. We did not have to look elsewhere for a restaurant. The atmosphere is quiet and friendly. The Gruyeres and Vacherin fondue was great and the extra Grison meat was delicious.

We'll be back for sure. Great experience. With an owner who is competent and friendly like M. Dumas, nothing can go wrong.
