Get to Know Swiss Quality Hotels
Founded in Switzerland in 1986 and formerly known as TOP International Hotels, Swiss Quality Hotels offer individually run three- and four-star accommodation in cities and holiday resorts in Switzerland, Germany and Italy.
With their own hotel classification system, Swiss Quality Hotels are grouped under four separate categories – Excellence, Superior, Value and Economy – and within those bands they also have themes to help customers appreciate the style and facilities of the hotel they are booking. Look out for boutique hotels, business hotels and meeting hotels, along with gourmet hotels, hotels specialising in well-being, and places to stay with an emphasis on ‘Swissness’, which are mostly in historic buildings or chalets with a traditionally Swiss ambience.

What to Do in the Vaudois Alps
The Vaudois Alps Other is more than just the three main ski resorts of Villars, Leysin and Les Diablerets. Get out and explore and you’ll find picturesque mountain villages, with plenty of fun things to do.
Within easy reach by road or rail are the Lake Geneva waterfront towns of Montreaux, Vevey and Lausanne. The first two are linked by a lakeside path, reputed to be one of the prettiest urban walks in Switzerland, while Lausanne is capital of the canton of Vaud, and home to the official Olympic Museum and archives. Also nearby is the Medieval town of Aigle, best known for its imposing castle which today operates as the Vine and Wine Museum. There are plenty of sightseeing opportunities all year round, and after a fun-packed day, you can return to your Swiss Quality Hotel for a well-deserved rest.
