Following renovations this hotel is probably worth 5* rating again. Our room (with view and balcony) was spacious with luxury bathroom. The service was beyond reproach and the elegant 'Pendule' restaurant, with it's glorious views of the Eiger, serves mostly excellent meals (just one meal below par in 7 nights). The situation, opposite the train station, is very convenient and central to the village. Our room was quiet with no noise from adjoining rooms or traffic.
However, it is expensive for a British visitor: cheapest bottle of wine about £40.00. But this was Switzerland in high season, and not Bulgaria! Tip for all visitors flying - make use of the excellent Swiss "Fly/Rail" transfer system to handle your suitcases.
Prospective visitors should be aware that Grindelvald is building a new central Car Park with works continuing throughout 2014. The site is a bit of an 'eyesore' in such a pretty village.
