„Kleines besitzergeführtes Hotel mit viel Charme im Skigebiet Saanenmöser. Attraktive Kinderpreise. Ein unkompliziertes und hübsches Hotel mit Wohlfühlfaktor" / Familien-Reiseblog
„Le grand Petit Hotel. Auch unser 2. Aufenthalt im Petit Relais mit Familie war perfekt. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt, die Gastfreundschaft ist hervorragend, die Zimmer sind klar und gut eingerichtet, sauber und hell. Das Restaurant mit Selfservice und der 'coolen' Kinderspielecke war für uns alle picobello. Können wir nur empfehlen!

Familie O. aus L. / Tripadvisor

„Wir haben uns in diesem Hotel sehr wohl gefühlt. Es liegt nahe am Bahnhof (5 Min.) von Saanenmöser bei Gstaad und sehr ruhig in der Landschaft. Unser Zimmer war schön eingerichtet. Die Gastgeber & ihr Team sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Buffet für das Morgenessen war reichhaltig und schön angerichtet. Die Matratzen waren sehr komfortabel. Wir haben gut geschlafen.“
