We have stayed at the Derby several times in the past few years. This February we came with friends and our week was fantastic, everyone who works at the hotel is so friendly and helpful. The views from the rooms are amazing which ever side you are on. My son had one of the recently refurbished rooms which was lovely,... More

We stayed here just for a day 24 hours to be precise. Lovely hotel not luxurious by any standards but when you are out for most of the day what you look for is a comfortable well appointed room. Some people might find it odd but we found the location just awesome. Its practically on the railway platform. So on... More

Our family has stayed at the Derby in the past and has enjoyed its great hospitality and atmosphere. We recently returned as a family for a week's skiing, and were not disappointed. The staff and owners were exceptional in their friendliness and helpfulness - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable and clean - we can recommend... More

The hotel is situated in an ideal location by the train track for visiting Kleine Scheidegg. The facilities for storing skis and boots are excellent. The free WiFi didn't have complete coverage in our room, but it was fast enough when it was connected. The room was a good size with a balcony although it would be nice to see... More

Well, to be honest, not much had changed - at least to the perception of the guest. The revamping of the rooms continues (mine had been done, whoopee!). The welcome on arrival from the fantastic team on reception was as warm as always. The breakfast menu now also offered bacon and eggs as well the meats, fruits, cheeses, cereals etc.... More

My husband and I spent a fortnight here with friends, enjoying a ski-ing holiday in the lovely area around Grindelwald. The hotel's situation by the railway station is very convenient, both for arrival at Grindelwald from Interlaken Ost station and also for accessng the huge ski area of Kleine Scheidegg by mountain railway.. For those wishing to ski the First... More

Just back from a fantastic week skiing the Grindelwald, Wengen and Murren slopes. We chose The Derby Hotel for it's close proximity to the railway station and the bus stops, both required to get to the slopes but also it has free wifi throughout the hotel and free entry to the sports centre pool which we found to be close...

We had a wonderful time staying in Derby! Great stuff and customer service. The reception stuff is very kind and helpful. Very full and tasty breakfast. And the main plus of this hotel for those who come to ski is a super great location. You can see trains from the balcony. But you don't hear any of them if you... More

My first visit back to the Derby for three years and pleased to say its still number one in my book for position and the welcome you receive. Nothing is too much trouble. The half board menu was excellent value and the room was, as usual, perfect. Stayed here for the Lauberhorn Race week.Took the train (free with your lift... More

I spent a week at the Derby travelling alone for a ski holiday. I had a bedroom that looked straight out onto the mountains through large (floor to ceiling) glass doors. The room was clean and the bed was comfy, really enjoyed laying in bed in the morning looking out onto the mountain. The room had a small balcony with... More
