The exceptional service started the moment we arrived. Met upon arrival by the son of the owner. Cordial and helpful in getting us tickets for the next day on the Jungfrau. The room was spotless. We had requested a corner room with a view and that is exactly what we received. The next morning we took the early train and... More

Built by ancestors using in some of the original building barn beams from the 1850's the Gletschergarten Hotel is a beautiful example of a traditional Swiss Mountain Hotel. Wood ceilings with carved details abounded. We enjoyed drinks in the parlor prior to dinner. The quiet elegant dining area has amazing views of the alps. The Michel-Breitenstein family are cordial hosts... More

Want to stay in a Swiss-chalet style hotel that has been in the family for over a hundred years? Then Hotel Gletschergarten is where you want to go! The owners Gabriela, Gerhard, and their son Lars make you want to return and return! This was our second stay at the hotel. This time we were an extended family of 12... More

Stay here. (That’s the short version.) Our family (ages 23 to 82) stayed at the Hotel Gletschergarten for five days of vacation in mid-July. We had a standard double, a superior double and a deluxe double, and all the rooms were clean, comfortable and had amazing views. Plus, each was unique. The breakfasts were great and evening meals were a... More

Good advice from Gabriela helped make this a truly memorable holiday with a fabulous experience of walking in the the Bernese Oberland. We stayed half board and really enjoyed the evening meals. Hotel Gletschergarten is close to the railway station and cable car stop but yet feels miles away with glorious views of the mountains -- a great centre for... More

The fabulous views of the Eiger plus the wonderful hospitality provided by the family that owns and operates the hotel made for a wonderful stay! The view from our balcony was awesome, and the 5-minute walk into town made it close enough...but away from the noise of the summer street festivals. (The festivals are held every Wednesday evening during the... More

My family and I feel really lucky to have chosen this hotel as our basis to explore nearby cities in German Switzerland. The family who runs it and all their staff made us feel most welcome. They were very professional and very helpful throughout our one week stay. In terms of service, comfort, views and food (their restaurant has a... More

From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave, Gabriela & Gery plus their son Lars were very friendly, welcoming & helpful. Their local knowledge help in our decision making for excursions each day, even directing us to the bakery across the road for our daily provisions. The hotel was of typical Swiss Chalet style with beautiful... More

If you're looking for corporate, clinical and anonymous then this isn't for you. If you're looking for helpful, friendly, clean, homely then this is the place to be. The outside of the hotel is stunning, in a beautiful location with AMAZING views. The owners are beyond helpful, nothing is too much bother for them. They'll book you tickets, suggest outings...
