I can't say anything about the hotel side because I didn't stay there, but the restaurant produced the best rösti I had anywhere in a ten day tour of Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Called "First Rösti" on the menu, I noticed. Good wine too. Not too expensive. Friendly service. The dining room was full of local people, which is always a good sign.
(Because of its old-fashioned sounding name, I thought this may have been where Lord Byron stayed in Grindelwald. In fact, he seems to have stayed at the Adler, now demolished. The people at the Derby will know where it once stood.)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The very walls that greet you as you approach the Hotel Derby are steeped in history. The "Hotel de la Gare" was built here by the legendary Captain Gsteiger at the end of the 19th century. The same underlying principle applied then as it does now: we want to offer our guests a holiday that will long remain with them as a happy memory. Just travelling to the Derby is a pleasure in itself. The journey by rail could hardly be easier. We are passionate about hospitality and welcome you with a very special combination of attention to details and unobtrusive service. Stylish rooms and suites offer you plenty of space to unwind, relax and take in the splendid Mountain View. All rooms offer view to the surrounding mountains and are equipped with shower or bath/toilet, satellite TV, minibar and safe. The junior suites additionally provide a separate sitting corner. Most of the rooms have a balcony. In total 4 restaurants are at your choice.
