We stayed here for three nights and had a memorable experience. This hotel is absolutely wonderful with its owners taking special care. They provide all the tickets,pickup and drop off and also provide help in planning the trip. Truly amazing experience here....

We are a group of six and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in the end of May 2014. Gabriela gave us the best service I have ever had. On arrival day... More

We spent three nights here in July. The hotel is full of charm. The family that owns and manages the hotel are the hardest working couple in the hospitality industry. They are also the warmest, most welcoming couple in the industry. We felt like we were visiting family. Situated in the heart of the alps, it's easy to simply sit... More

We spent our 40th wedding anniversary at the Gletschergarten and had a marvelous time. This was our third stay there. When visiting the Lauterbrunnen Valley we had previously stayed once in Wengen and once at another Grindelwald hotel. Since discovering the Gletschergarten, this is the only place for us! This is a true, family run Swiss chalet hotel that has... More

We just stayed at the hotel and had a wonderful time. The owners are wonderful people and made our stay even better. It rained during our entire visit and they could not have done more to help us find activities. The hotel is convenient to the train station but they will pick you up if you give them a call....

I stayed for a week at the hotel a few weeks ago and had a great stay. The hotel is well managed and maintained and the family are friendly and helpful and clearly take pride in the business they run. The hotel is clean and comfortable and well situated - close enough to town to easily walk in and enjoy... More

We stayed here as part of a self-guided tour with Alpenwild. We were delighted with the owners of this small hotel; Gabriella was great at giving us advice on where to hike given the weather (cloudy, drizzly) and went out of her way to give us a ride to the bus station at the last moment. Our room looked out... More

Ts was the friendliest hotel we stayed at our entire trip. The family run hotel went out oif their way to accommodate us. On our anniversary they decorated our dinner table with rose petals and flags. Their food was wonderful and they were glad to adjust their menu to fit our needs. Our room and dining room were lovely with... More

Just left the Gletschergarten yesterday after 3 perfect nights. It started from Grindelwald station where we were met by Gary which is how he introduced himself to us Aussies. Our room was also perfect with the most beautiful view and the most comfortable beds. Gary was also kind enough to collect our bags from the station as we used fast... More

We came only for a single night so that we could do some hiking. We greatly appreciated the warm welcome we received by the owners and the overall family atmosphere. We had a superior double room that was spacious, comfortable and had a lot of charm. The breakfasts were good, and the evening meal was excellent, with great service.
