The Parkhotel Bellevue was built in 1901 as one of the first hotels in Adelboden. Since 1926 it has been owned by the Richard family, which personally managed the hotel for three generations. Since February 2010 management has been the responsibility of Irene and Martin Müller.
In 1997 the holiday and wellness hotel became a four-star member of Private Selection (formerly Alpine Classics). It is listed in the «wellness hotel» and «design and lifestyle hotel» categories of the umbrella organisation hotelleriesuisse. The «Gault Millau» restaurant guide has awarded 13 points to the Bellevue's kitchen.
