As you might expect, the sky’s the limit if you choose to stay in Gstaad. However, it’s not impossible to find inexpensive accommodation, either in the village or nearby. The Bellerive campsite is 1km north of Gstaad (033/744 63 30, fax 744 63 45), well equipped but a tad pricey. Beim Kappeli, a more spartan option, is just south of Saanen on the outskirts of Gstaad (033/744 61 91, fax 744 60 42; closed early May), while ten minutes’ walk northwest of Saanen is a comfortable, rustic HI hostel in the old-style Chalet Rüblihorn (033/744 13 43, fax 744 55 42; a; closed Nov), with quality dorms from Fr.26 and bike rental.

Saanen, and neighbouring villages such as Saanenmöser, also have the least expensive hotels, including the Bahnhof in Saanen (033/744 14 22; b), with parking and a choice of en-suite or shared-bath rooms. Within Gstaad, Posthotel Rössli is a cosy lower-end choice (033/748 42 42, fax 748 42 43; d), the oldest hotel in the village with renovated pine-decor rooms, while Olden (033/744 34 44, fax 744 61 64; f) is a fresher and slicker choice but still with plenty of atmosphere. Steps from the station is the Bernerhof (033/748 88 44, fax 748 88 40; e–f), a huge place with generous rooms and an indoor pool. Towering over the village and visible from all points is the fantasy Palace Hotel (033/748 50 00, fax 748 50 01, www.palace.ch; i), laughingly calling itself a “family pension” as it asks Fr.1000 for a ski season double room – but then again, with underwater music in the pool, giant rooms and lavish dinners on the south-facing terrace, they know their clientele well.
