A very friendly and well run hotel, the staff making sure that you made the most of your time in Grindelwald offering lots of advice and suggestions about what to do and the best times to do it. Quite a dated decor, but this added to the charm and authenticity of the hotel. A wide selection offered for breakfast but... More

"Gletschgarten" means "glacier garden" because it has a nice view of the glacier that comes down the mountain toward the town. The view from this hotel can be quite spectacular. Having stayed over 1,000 nights in hotels, on a "5 star" system I would give this hotel a "4". (And the only reason it's not a "5" is that it's... More

We spent a week in this charming hotel in August 2014. Booking was easy through hotel's website, which actually led to booking.com. Hotel is located in the other end of Grindelwald village, about 1 km from the train station, from where you'll be picked up if notified the owners of your exact arrival time. Location is good, very quiet apart... More

A family run hotel now in the (I think) fourth generation. Our hosts exceded every reasonable expectation for service... going far out of their way to be helpful. Want to hike? They will put you on to some great hikes with good advice. I agree with another reviewer that the location is idea in that it is scenic, but away... More

It's impossible not to be impressed by the fabulous scenery in Grindelwald and thus you need a hotel to match that. Somewhere very Swiss, very comfortable, good value for money in this expensive country and friendly would fit the bill. That is exactly what this hotel is. I haven't ever stayed anywhere that so closely matched the ambience of the... More

We stayed in the Gletschergarten hotel while touring Switzerland. The owners were very friendly and always focused on ensuring our stay was a pleasant one. We spent 4 nights in the Gletschergarten. The meals were very good and the staff were attentive to ever need. What a delightful hotel.

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. It was our Silver Wedding Anniversary and we wanted somewhere special but not too formal and Gletschergarten was perfect. From our late evening pick up at the station by the very courteous Matteus, to the end of our stay nothing was too much trouble... More

We spent two nights at the hotel with our three children. These were the best days of our amazing trip in Switzerland. The rooms are so nice, the view from the room's balcony is breathtaking. breakfast is excellent, the hotel and rooms are VERY clean. Finally, the hospitality is simply perfect. I hope to spend more time there soon!

I was glad to be in the Gletschergarten because the friendliness, helpfulness and cheeriness of the owners and staff contrasted so much with the rest of the town. I was on holiday with my son and his family and felt completely relaxed and at ease in this wonderful hotel. Not so in the rest of the town. We frequently came... More
