We spent 11 nights here for our Anniversary and it exceeded all our expectations. Its a small family run hotel at the end of the main road in Grindelwald but is far from remote. The number 12 bus in the winter runs every 15 minutes and it stops right outside the hotel to take you into town and drops you... More

I'm a bit sad to see that the classic old Wetterhorn has been thoroughly modernized inside and out. The "old Switzerland" charm may be gone, but the incredible setting remains, as does the wonderful food. The new rooms are terrific, but you'll pay a pretty price for them. The once simple and inexpensive Wetterhorn is gone forever. I first stayed... More

We stayed down the road but discovered this place on an evening walk so went for supper the next night. The hotel is quite large as is the restaurant. Food was good and plentiful. You need a car or plan to hike if you are staying in Grindelwald as sit is on the far edge of town. Prices for Switzerland... More

The location of this Hotel is unique, so is also the food you just get there in the Restaurant. Even it is a little bit out of the town Grindelwald. Have a hike to there, look the wonderful glacier and enjoy the real good food.

Stopped here for lunch having ridden up the Grosse Scheidegg. Best Alpenrosti encountered in the area! Very nice terrace in the sun (when its out) and good service, all at reasonable and generally un-Grindlewald prices.

Well this establishment must have the best views in Grindelwald. We stop here every year for lunch or a drink and is amazing. HOWEVER, we were sceptacle as our last visit served stone cold goulash soup, but this time was good. We had wild sausage with potato salad which was excellent. The staff were friendly enough and is always a... More

The hotel and restaurant were excellent! We stayed two nights, and the staff went out of their way several times to help make our stay comfortable including helping to find lost items on a trail and finding a quiet place to watch the World Cup even though our room had no TV and the game was broadcast late in the...

This is an excellent restaurant to finish a long walk with great food and terrace facing the Wetterhorn plus a frequent bus service to Grindelwald. Have also skied here in winter and always a great welcome.

We were sure glad to get to Hotel Wetterhorn for lunch after coming down from Gleckstein Hut in the rain! Warm and inviting and good food smells inside. Got a beer (Rogenbrau, of course) and hot chocolate and started to warm up. On a rainy day at 12:30 this place was almost completely full, but service was still good. Had... More

The Wetterhorn Hotel Restaurant ranks near the top of the local cuisine in Grindelwald ... and the setting in the dining room wins the top notch award for good atmosphere .... so why not FIVE STARS. Easy to explain just by saying : Try and bring a fly swatter with you ..... I don't know if the doors to the... More
