Hotel Chesa Grischuna Klosters, Switzerland

“Once known as “Hollywood on the Rocks” the Chesa Grishuna has entertained a star studded list of movie legends from Greta Garbo, Gene Kelly to Rex Harrison and Anthony Perkins, over the decades. Alpine chic rooms and inventive cuisine in the highly regarded restaurant.”

“Opened in 1938 The Chesa Grischuna remains timeless and one of the resort's most popular hotels. Part of the Romantik Hotel group, the superlatives run away with the tongue: ‘Welcoming, warm, cosseting, charming, wonderful service...”. Hans Guler from a local family of mountain guides commissioned a well-known Zurich architect Hermann Schneider to build his hotel right in the heart of the village. It rapidly became the most popular hotel for American GIs during the war and then the haunt of celebrities and movie stars. The hotel has been lovingly created over the decades, furnished with local furniture, wood carvings, pretty fabrics, using local artisans and handicrafts, combined with contemporary art and murals. Chef Michael Bless has been awarded 16 Gault Millau for his cuisine, offering a set menu and a creative a la carte menu. The dining room has great charm: old floors, dark beams, carved painted wood and it's usually packed. Expect local produce and regional specialities. The cellar offers over 150 wines. For resident guests there is a cosy Säli on the first floor with comfy sofas and a crackling log fire. The Chesa piano bar, where the walls are painted with murals of winter scenes, has always been the place to be après ski. The adjoining Grishuna guesthouse offers less expensive rooms to those in the main house. Bedrooms are well appointed and furnished in a typical Grison Alpine style, crisp white linen and puffy duvets. Loyal guests return like Lemmings.”
