    « Nice hotel in a cute litte town »

    We had a one-night stay in Bulle and it was one of the nicest surprises of our trip. What a cute little town and the best chocolate factory tour ever! Make sure you visit the Callier factory while you are there - the tour is only 12 francs and you get to try as much chocolate as you want at the end. It's a real life Willy Wonka experience. There is also a Chateau just out of town that is worth a visit. Unfortunately we were too late to enter the castle but the little village surrounding it was lovely. The hotel is in the centre of town and the rooms and service were great. It has free parking and a nice restaurant attached.

    « The best hotel in the area »

    I have stayed at this hotel for two weeks spring and autumn over the last few years and always found it excellent The staff have consistently maintained their high standard each and every time I have stayed there I book one of the larger rooms with a desk by a window as I need to do work in my room and this is ideal for me The hotel is spotless, comfortable, well equipped and ideally located just ten minutes from the railway station The staff are outstanding and nothing is too much trouble They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable A very highly recommended hotel

    « Wonderful hotel in city centre! »

    This hotel makes you feel like home! From the warm welcome, the fantastic food and drink choices, the OUTSTANDING staff, to the cozy rooms, it is all simply the BEST! The Manager, Adeline and the Assistant Manager, Toby have gone out of their way to ensure our group has nothing but the absolute best service! I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I won't stay anywhere else in the Bulle area.

    « Comfortable, friendly and convenient »

    I was in Bulle for business over a two-week period and stayed at the Best Western Hotel Rallye twice during that time. The location was within walking distance of my customer and of the train station. The hotel rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The service was very good (I was allowed to checkin 2 hours early). The restaurant was excellent. Good value for money.

    « Good and bad »

    We were made very welcome upon our arrival. Checked-in, headed up to our room and crancked the A/C on. We had dinner out on the terrace. The food was very tasty and the service quite good. Occassionaly some language barrier but the staff were very patient and happy to refine their English. Sleepin that night was impossible. As lovely as the room was it was super stuffy and hot, the A/C wasn't working. Not what you expect or want when paying for an executive room. Breakfast was ok. The usual cereals, bacon & eggs, cheese, meats and breads, but no toaster which was really disappointig especially in such a hotel. Downstairs was really hot and stuffy in the morning too, so we sat out on the terrace. The actual breakfast room only has seating for about 8 people, the rest have to sit out in the retaurant. We also had to ask for plate a there wasn't any in the breakfast room. With a few minor changes (working A/C and a toaster at breakfast) it would be close to full marks.

    « Nice hotel in the middle of Bulle town »

    Nice hotel and friendly, english speaking staff. If you want air condition please book a superior room. Great breakfast with the regions speciality, creme double! Also the hotel restaurant was great and had a nice selection, even though a little expensive, but that is Switzerland!

    « Good in French Switzerland »

    Close to the highway A12, on the way to Lausanne from Bern, good parking facility, nice town to have a walk in the evening, clean rooms, quality French/Thai restaurant, very good continental breakfast.

    « Confortable hôtel with very helpfull staff »

    I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. During the first night I had a problem with my matress which seemed to be disformed. I informed the friendly housekeeper about my problem the next morning. She answered she would take care of it and in the evening I have got a brand new matress. The hotel is quiet and breakfast is a good value. I am pleased with my stay.

    « Excellent hotel in all respects »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times on business over the past few years, each time for a couple of weeks and have just been back again this month They have continued to maintain their exceptionally high standard It is by far the very best hotel in the area having stayed at others close by. It never disappoints. Spacious well equipped, spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms with mini bar fridge, hairdryer and good size en suite shower. Plenty of robe hanging space and drawers Desk for working in your room Free wi fi of a good standard Good location only ten minutes walk from the rail station. The staff go out of their way to make your stay as good as they can. Nothing is too much trouble. Ideal for business or leisure travellers.

    « Big room, good location »

    Hotel is located at 10 minutes walking distance from the train station. We have been well looked after. The employees are very nice. Internet wifi is free of charge with high speed. They have also a good Thai fusion restaurant that you must definitely try. Breakfast was correct. I will return again.

    « Comfortable, good value »

    Friendly welcome and check-in, comfortable, quiet room, great night's sleep. All you could ask for at this price point. Car park looked full on an early March Saturday, so recommend booking ahead. Also restaurant had no available tables so again, reserve ahead. Would come back.

    « Average location but hotel staff and restaurant make up for it »

    We booked this last minute thinking the hotel is nearer to Gruyere and when first driving up to it thought oh no. But the room was perfect really spacious and modern and when we asked for a top with a balcony it was not a problem at all. The restaurant serves really tasty good food and is a mixture of Thai and French giving a really good alternative to the usual fondue you find in town - which USA short walk away. The place does not seem like much but oh boy the restaurant evening meals are good the staff and their service spot on! We complaint about a delay in service the first night and they went out of their way to make up for it. A very small team of people working very hard together and trying to make a difference to what would be classed as a business hotel. A good place to stay when you do not mind walking to driving to the nearby resorts such as the cable cars of moleson and the old town Gruyere.

    « My place in Bulle »

    I have to stay in Bulle two to three times a year and I have stayed in four different hotels and this is my favourite It is at the end of the high street but would need a taxi from station if you had a lot of bags It's about 10 minutes from station and a nice walk This time I was placed in an executive room which was a nice spacious room and could work there with WiFi and great wet room walk in shower The hotel has an Asian restaurant which is popular by the people I see in it but I have not used Breakfast is extra 18 and is a full buffet with good range but only hot boiled eggs provided no other hot food Will use again if I have the choice

    « Worth the Long Walk »

    As a business hotel this has all you need. The only minor negative point is that the lift is tiny and if you stay in certain rooms you need to cross to the extension and it is a bit of a walk. Good size, comfortable rooms and very pleasant staff. If you do not get breakfast included in the room rate then don't bother paying extra for it.

    « Good product with great service! »

    A good product with superb service. The front office staff were very helpful, both early, during the day and late. You notice right away if an establishment is properly managed. The service you get from the staff; either (1) you get staff that do only their "job" or (2) staff who are passionate about helping you. They even ship my lost & found heart rate monitor for free - WoW.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    Nice cozy hotel with excellent facilities. Very neat hotel reflecting the Swiss tradition. The only complain was that there was no fan to cool the room when the weather was hot but learnt later that you could request for fan from the reception.

    « Acceptable »

    Pros: Nice hotel which left me a positive impression. Good position in the city. Clean. Room comfortable. Cons: Just a couple of things to say: Breakfast is wonderful, but too expensive (18 chf). A bottle of water in the room costs 6 chf. Although I understand it is a hotel and we were in Switzerland, 6 chf for a bottle of water was a little bit overpriced. Coke cost less than water (5 chf). The bathroom was very tiny.

    « Top quality »

    We stayed in an executive suite, very tastefully designed, spacious, with everything you need. We had a room away from the road and it was very quiet. We would have welcomed a reading lamp over the bed and a larger writing table as there is plenty of space for one. The restaurant serves French and Thai food. We tried both and were delighted with the quality and service. The hotel is 10 minutes walk through the old town from the station. A very pleasant hotel with very friendly staff. The pretty village Gruyère is less than 10 minutes away by train.
