Pleasant stay at this charming hotel. Nice rooms with balcony accompanied with excellent service from our host who really makes an effort to make everyone satisfied. The hotel is close to the ski lift on the First-side. Transport to the railway station was included with naturalness.

The Michel family are wonderful hosts. Warm, helpful and attentive to detail. They work hard to ensure you have all you need. The family accommodation is perfect with beautiful views, all the cooking equipment you need and enough room for the whole family. It is perfectly located to the bakery, ski lifts, train station and the village centre. This is our second stay and we hope to back again soon.

We recently stayed at the family-run hotel in Grindelwald, Switzerland and I have to say it was an absolute delight! This was our second stay the first being during December 2019, we just had to return with the whole family. Gary and Gaby the owners were incredibly friendly and welcoming, making us feel right at home. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views from our room of the surrounding mountains were breathtaking and we spent many evenings just sitting and soaking it all in. The location of the hotel was perfect - just a short walk from the center of town, but far enough away to feel like we were in our own little oasis. The included breakfast was also a highlight - it was delicious and had something for everyone. Overall, I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day of exploring the stunning Swiss Alps. Five stars all the way!

Our adult family visited this hotel over the three day Christmas period. I could not recommend this hotel/guest house highly enough. If you are looking for an authentic Swiss holiday then this is the hotel to go to. The Christmas atmosphere was amazing and a credit to the owners and staff. We took advantage of the half board which included breakfast and dinner and the food and service were impeccable the Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve was a very special evening with in a beautifully decorated dining room and a visit from Santa and small gifts for all the guests. If you want to take your family on a traditional Christmas getaway in the Swiss alps then this is the place to go to. Thank you to the hosts for a very special experience for our family. We are from Australia and this was a Christmas never to forget

The staff are super friendly and helpful, they even helped us to pick up our luggages and snowboarding equipment from another hotel. The location is great too, right next to the bus stop. The breakfast is nice, a generous serving of coffee and tea, wide variety of sliced bread and spread (it would be perfect if there’s fresh fruit available as well ). The hotel room is very spacious and the balcony has an incredible view of the mountain. The little old-schooled elevator is an unique spot of the hotel as well. We will definitely come back if we have another chance to visit Grindelwald in the future.

My mother and I traveled around Europe together this past summer, and spent two nights at the Hotel Gletschergarten in August. It was by far one of the highlights of our trip! The family who runs the hotel is incredibly kind and helpful. Our room was very nice, and had one of the most stunning views I have ever seen. The village itself is absolutely beautiful, and going up to the Jungfraujoch is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If we're ever fortunate enough to visit Switzerland again, we will for sure stay here again!

I didn't stay at the hotel, but came for dinner one night. I wish I had stayed there, however, instead of the fancier place I stayed, because the food was really delicious, and the warmth and kindness of the owners created a special ambiance. Plus they have a self-service washing machine and dryer, which guests can use. This saves so much money over most hotels where I have stayed in Switzerland that require guests with laundry to pay for hotel "laundry service" at many times the price of doing it yourself. (Disregard "hotel ratings" section about rooms since I did not stay there)
