We would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay. Gabriela and Gerhard ensured that we hard a wonderful time, they both gave us comprehensive local information and ticketing services for the different transports we used. The evenings in the bar let us interact with their family who were all very friendly and happy to converse with us.

We stayed at hotel Gletschergarten in late May 2016. The hotel has a lot of charm and is well cared for. Our room was spacious and shared a common deck with the adjacent room which our traveling companions were staying in. We enjoyed time on the deck with wine, cheese, fruit and friends. Before getting to Grindelwald, we had called... More

We wanted a relaxing getaway and found the perfect spot. We had a corner room that was very spacious with a huge balcony and a view of the mountains that was absolutely beautiful. The room was lovely. Comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was a bus stop across the street that made it very easy to explore the area. The breakfast... More

Family run hotel, extremely well done, helpful, smiling, accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Great food and wine; breakfast simple and plentiful. A short stroll into the town itself which meant the hotel was quiet and chilled.

I can defiantly see why this hotel is number one! The owners were so kind and helpful. They helped us set up paragliding and at the end gave us directions to our next destination. Since my family has 4 people, we got 2 rooms. As requested, the rooms were right next to each other with a shared balcony that made... More

This is a family-run hotel that not only looks like a Swiss Chalet, but felt like one. The service was great and the staff was really friendly. The restaurant had a fixed menu each night (we ate there twice) and they even accommodated my children with items not on the menu, which made everyone happy. It was only about a... More

While the hotel itself is quite nice and the location is good, it's the hosts that make ALL the difference. It is quite literally impossible to imagine how they could be friendlier or more helpful. Either Geary or Gabrielle was always at the reception desk, and not only provided invaluable advice about the many hikes but also booked tickets for... More

The owners, Geary and Gabrielle are very friendly and extremely helpful. Geary's hiking advice was invaluable. The hotel is charning. We were lucky enough to get a spacious balcony with a beautiful view of the Eiger and the Feischerhorn! I would stay here again in a minute....and hope to!
