“Superb Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The hotel is located about a minute's walk from the train station and across the street from the bus stand. The city information centre is coming up close to the hotel as well. Still the street is quiet by the evening. The views of the Eiger and other peaks is breathtaking from the hotel room balconies or coffee shop. The view itself more than makes up for the room rent. The restaurant is excellent, staff very efficient and accommodating. Breakfast is wholesome and sufficient.

The room we had was HUGE. We were upgraded on check in to a superior room with a mountain view and balcony. The bathroom was also very big and the shower was excellent. The recption staff were welcoming and helpful at suggesting itineraries for the day. All in all and excellent choice!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a room with a balcony and view of the Eiger. It is worth it!

We were very happy with the Central Wolter Hotel. It was very easy to find since it was so close to the train station. We also took advantage of the bus passes and that was very convenient that the station is across the street. The staff were very friendly and they made us feel welcomed. We were very happy with our room. It had plenty of space including a small table and a desk. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony facing the Eiger. The breakfast was very good.
We also ate dinner at the restaurant and it was excellent. First time for kangaroo!
There was major construction all around Grindelwald (mid April) but I think because we were there in-between seasons. We would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

We stayed for two days in an appartment belonging to this hotel. The appartments are located in a separate building at the back. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The appartment was roomy and tidy, although the kitchen was quite old and should be renovated. For cooking, you can get a small kitchen set at the front desk for a 20 CHF bail. Beds were comfortable, although personally I didn't like the overly soft pillows.
The best thing about this hotel (apart from the reasonable price) is that it is located directly near the train and bus station, which is especially convenient after an exhausting daytrip. There's a supermarket about 5 minutes away and ofcourse there are many outdoor shops where you get anything that is needed for hiking of skiing. All in all we very much liked our stay and can recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: We had appartment nr 11, which had a small balcony and a direct view on the "triplet" Eige...

We have just returned from a holiday here. We only booked the week previous to travelling so did not have choice of rooms. Even though our rooms did not have the view of the superior front rooms we found them perfectly satisfactory. They were spacious enough, quiet and clean. The breakfast buffet was good with plenty of choice and only the drinks were brought by the waitress. The guest restaurant was full for dinner and we sat near the reception on the first night but were moved downstairs to the public restaurant for the remainder of the week, which was more comfortable and had more atmosphere. We were very pleased with the service and the food. Although there was a set menu we were always asked if it was suitable and if not were offered an alternative. The owners were friendly and often around, stopping to to speak to the guests and they held a drinks reception for guests and also hosted a Curling evening at the Sports Centre which was fun. We found the Reception staff very friendly and helpful also.

The location of this hotel cannot be beaten. It is opposite the bus station and the railway station is only 100m away - both these transport links are important in Grindelwald

Overall, for a 3 star hotel in this resort we were very happy with the hotel and service.

Just had a great holiday in snowy and beautiful Grindelwald. We stayed at the Wolter which is ideal because its across the quiet road from the Bus pickup and less than 100 metres to the picturesque train station. These two transport hubs cannot be heard from the hotel which is great. The buses and trains take you to all the main areas you could wish to go to, allowing ski access to the mountains or a great place to start walking.

These are free with your ski pass.

The hotel is traditional, very clean and well presented. We had half board and all the meals were of excellent quality. Four courses each evening and a good breakfast self service, with the usual bread, cheese, ham, cooked bacon and eggs, cake etc. We had the best table which looked out onto the Eiger which was a great start to the day.

The staff were great and helpful and the free WIFI was a bonus and it worked without any technical hitches. Skis stored in a dry room downstatirs and this was adequate with hot pegs to dry your boots. A bit small for a full hotel of skiers but a second room was available if required.

The rooms were nicely appointed, although a little small. TV with English, Swiss, French and German channels. No problem at all with this accommodation.

I guess because of the quality of the hotel, the location, the food and in particular the staff it would be hard to find a better hotel in the 3/4 star bracket and my wife and I highly recommend it.

Love Grindelwald as well, its a gem.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a room that has its balcony facing the North face of the Eiger.

It's the second time we've stayed at the Wolter and it just gets better.

The staff are so friendly and always seem to be happy.

The rooms are warm, clean and comfortable.

Breakfast is great, dinner is lovely and what can I say about the heated outdoor terrace other than I can't think of a better place for a cold beer and people watching :)
