Our family recently spent 2 nights in 3 lovely rooms at the hotel. The family was so helpful and welcoming that we felt right at home. They even transported us to and from the train station. Each of our rooms had a lovely balcony and was comfortable and clean. The other shared spaces were cozy and they lit a fire... More

Our 6 night stay here was a real pleasure and very stress-free, due to the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners who seemed able and willing to arrange whatever we expressed an interest in. They really put their guests first and nothing was too much trouble. For example, when we went to the public swimming pool (free with a hotel... More

As other reviewers have said, not only is the hotel location, views and quality of the rooms great, but the experience and helpfulness of the family running it was superb. I found their advice on our requests for information/advice to be genuine and not 'what you tell the tourists'. Everyone was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I could... More

We arrived late at this hotel and although the kitchen had just closed they produced us a meal. They helped us with a number of queries and were most attentive and friendly throughout. This is a family-run hotel, and proud of it. They gave us lifts into and out of town. They apologised for what they considered the small size... More

You can feel that family who runs this hotel put heart into their work. I never felt more welcome in any place before. I could write a lot of good things, but you should visit this hotel and explore its treasures on your own. And by the way, in case you've read White Spider, you should know that this hotel... More

We had a wonderful 8 days skiing in Grindelwald, staying for a week in the apartment and last day in the hotel. The family could not have done more for us, nothing was to be too much trouble. The apartment was small and simple but clean and comfortable with a decent balcony with beautiful views of the mountains. Over the... More

This was our second vista to this delightful hotel. Last time was in the late spring but this visit was during the ski season. Sometimes returning somewhere you really enjoyed before can lead to disappointment but this was not the case here. Gabriela and Gerhard and their charming son Lars were just as welcoming and as friendly and helpful as... More

Wonderful hotel - fantastic hospitality - excellent rooms - very clean - top class food. Location best in town. The family owned hotel has a wonderful atmosphere. From pick up at the Grindelwald Bahnhof and till the return, the hotel owners and their family extend a courtesey, which is something worth experiencing. Unsual. Yoy get a feeling, that you are...
