We are obviously a bit of a “Grand Old Lady”, with our 115 years and our insistence on service and hospitality. But at the same time, we follow the times, our cooking is contemporary and we can pamper you in a sensual, modern spa. This four-star plus hotel was completely renovated and sensitively returned to its roots by Basle architects Buchner Bründler between 2006 and 2013. In this comfortable, family atmosphere, surrounded by ancient, knotty maples and high mountains, you will find rest and happiness.
... of daily fulfilling your wishes and expectations. The hotel is managed by Franziska Richard who has been in charge of the hotel's fortunes since summer 2018.
Franziska Richard (*1968) ist ein Mitglied der Besitzerfamilie Richard. Sie ist dipl. Hôtelier-Restaurateur HF (Hotelfachschule Thun) und sammelte ihre Berufserfahrung sowohl in Schweizer Erstklasshotels als auch als langjährige Fachjournalistin im Bereich Hotellerie und Gastronomie. In ihrer Freizeit lässt sie sich gerne von guten Restaurants und Hotel inspirieren, liest, wandert und reist gerne.
Jürgen Willing has had the pleasure of heading the “Bellevue” kitchen since 2003. This native of Düsseldorf has professional experience in both traditional inns and Michelin-star restaurants in Germany and Switzerland. His cooking style? Elegant but spirited and never heavy. He particularly appreciates regional products. Jürgen Willing, who has a 15-year old son, is a big football fan. In the autumn he walks through the forest to look for mushrooms and along the lakes to fish.
A love of eating and food is second nature to Katrin von Deschwanden. She and her three siblings grew up on a farm in Schliern bei Köniz. But it is also through family roots that she landed in Adelboden and has lived here a long time: her grandmother comes from here. This 29-year old Bernese runs the entire service department and trains our apprentices.
Ivan Bansky upset, losing track or angry? Never! He is calm and peaceful. He has worked for us for 10 years, since spring 2017 as deputy restaurant manager. He has never been bored over the years. A few years ago, this 31-year old Slovakian discovered mountain climbing and has been storming the Alps ever since. He has climbed 28 peaks in Adelboden, though the Wildstrubel, Adelboden’s symbol, is still not one of them.
Born in Adelboden, ended up in Adelboden. This is how Larissa Hari sums up her career. She is the competent contact person for your reservations. This 24-year old earned a diploma from a hotel school, then broadened her knowledge of English and amassed professional experience in the USA and in Canada. She balances her work by playing tennis and curling and by cooking.
