The Derby Hotel made our ski holiday to Grindelwald, at the begining of March. The location is ideal, being on the train station (electirc trains so no noise), means you can get to Kleine Schedigg ski area without walking anywhere. You can also get the train to Grindelwald Grund and a 3 minute walk to the gondolas takes you to the Manlichen ski area. Or you can take the trian(s) and cable cars to Murren ski area. The only ski area you cannot access by train is First, but this is also easy to access from the hotel, as the bus station is just accross the road, and a 3 minute bus journey takes you to the First gondola station. There is no better location in town than the Derby. The hotel itself is lovely, and very friendly. The food was amazing, and myself and my husband enjoyed every 5 course meal for the whole week, inlcuding the Swiss speaciality night and the fondue evening in the Cava restaurant - all included. The breakfast buffet was great, with lots of choice, and the service provided was really good. The views from the balconys of the rooms is amazing, and there is a lovely quiet seating area on the top floor with views to the front and back of the hotel. There are ski lockers and boot warmers in the basement. The lesiure facitlites are nothing to shout home about, the sauna is small - but there if you want it. There is a fridge in the room (though no kettle), a safe, a tv, built in radio and alarm clock, with daily maid service. Staff are very helpful and there is a mountain of information available at reception. I really enjoyed our stay here, and have already recommended it to family members who are looking to book a walking holiday at this hotel next year based on my rave reviews and holiday snaps.
