We have just had a brilliant week skiing, as a family staying at The Hotel Gletschergarten. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. With a skibus stop outside the door all the slopes were readily accessible. The food was excellent and they catered for small children and special diets with equal ease.

This is a charming old mountain hotel with all one needs for an active holiday - including a restorative new sauna. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The location is quiet and only a few minutes walk from the town centre.

We had a corner room on the highest floor and the views of Eiger from our balcony/windows were magnificent! The hotel is located in a quiet area and yet within easy walking distance thru the shopping street to the train station. There are also free buses to the train station with the bus stop right in front of the hotel.... More

We stayed in the Apartment Eiger, a cosy one bedroom apartment . 10/1 - 17/1.all you need & Great view from the balcony . From the moment Gery picked us up from the train station everything was perfect. Gabriella & Gery were very hospitable and helpful with booking passes and trips etc....better than the tourist office! Nothing to complain about... More

From the moment we arrived, the owners provided exceptional service above and beyond any 5-star hotel. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here and the little touches and special meals provided will be remembered forever. I will dream of our return!

Consistent with all other reviews, the owners are true genuine hosts. Beautiful style chalet, comfortable rooms and good food in the restaurant, nice wine selection. Easy location in town to get around. Glad we stayed here and it won't disappoint.

The owners went go out of their way to make sure we had a nice stay. Great recommendations for skiing and pick up service from the train that made our trip so lovely. Rooms very clean and cozy. Great patios with amazing views of the mountains. Wifi was spotty in the rooms which upset our teenagers but we weren't there... More

At every turn, the hosts were personable and helpful, both prior and after our trip to this 115 year old chalet hotel. Wonderfully, the hotel was a perfect combination of hotel and B&B. You feel the personal attention desirable in a small town, but the hotel is large enough that you have your space. It is a little outside of... More
