Having just arrived in Grindelwald, we wanted to explore the area. Our hotel reception suggested a bus due to steep terrain and sent us here for lunch. Great traditional Swiss meal and good service. Upon arrival, we were fogged in and until later didn't realize the magnitude of our surroundings until a few snow days later and when it cleared!... More

We visited the restaurant in this hotel on the recommendation of the Tourist Information Centre at Grindelwald. It is some way out of Grindelwald so you either need to go on the bus or drive up there. There are two areas to choose from to eat in, both of which are nice and traditional. The menu is good with lots... More

This is a very clean hotel very well-located. The room was lovely, the bathroom wonderful. The bed was comfy. The price was reasonable--they gave us a lower price for our son as an extra bed in our double rather than a three person room. That saved us a lot and it was very nice. We also got a free pass...

We were on a week-long hiking trip, walking from "hut to hut." This was the only real "hotel" we stayed in and it was quite lovely. The rooms are modern, clean, roomy and very comfortable. We stayed in rooms with en-suite bathrooms which were great. The location can't be beat. Though the hotel sits on a large parking lot, from... More

We went to the restaurant at the Hotel Wetterhorn Grindelwald for drinks and snacks. To begin with lady who escorted us to a table was rude and didn't allow us to sit next to window. There were many tables free and none had marked reserve still she gave us corner table. We requested for a tap water for my daughter... More

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.
