My husband and I have stayed at the Derby many times, and we're never disappointed.
We've always been lucky enough to get rooms on the mountain side and the views of the Eiger are superb. It's worth splurging on a balcony - we'll never tire of sipping a beer while watching the clouds move across the north face. Far better view than from any of the bars in the village in my opinion.
Location, right at the railway station, is perfect for skiing and/or Swiss railway enthusiasts. Noise is not a problem. We've also never had a problem getting a parking space.
The food and service are excellent. We usually opt for the half board option, and they're always happy to let us have one of their excellent cheese fondues one evening.
The staff are very friendly and Frau Markle, in particular, is a most genial and generous hostess.
