“Idyllic hotel with a great view - great value for money”
Reviewed February 8, 2010

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend in Grindelwald. We were 6 couples staying the weekend in Hotel Sonnenberg, and we were all very satisfied with the hotel. We did not have any other meals in the hotel than breakfast, as the kitchen closed quite early, but the receptionist suggested a restaurant nearby where we had dinner. Breakfast was nice, the service was nice and the value for money was great as the price was quite low compared with neighboring hotels. The only "drawback" was that the hotel was situated 50 meters from the parking and there was no access with car, so for people with problems walking, this could be a problem. We rather saw it as a warmup for the next days' skiing. The hotel rooms were neat, and clean, the mattresses were of high quality and the view was breathtaking. We will definitely stay there again.

This was recommended by our Allianz travel guide. I traveled there with my 70 year old mother and a niece. We had one piece of luggage for the 3 day trip. Before we arrived, we called to see if they could send someone to help us with the bag. NO!
We walked up and up and up and finally got to the place. I inquired if someone could help us take the bag down in the morning and the reply was: "if you needed that, you should have just stayed down by the train station."
We were then told to take a look at the room to see if we like it. When I asked what if we don't? She replied that we would have to pay the full price anyway even if we decide not to stay here.
I have to say that this is a bit surprising given the quality of the various hotels, Inns, apartments and B&Bs we have stayed in in Switzerland (we live here) and certainly hope that this is an isolated incident.
The food at the hotel's restaurant was better than its service and reasonably priced with the half board option we took.
