Our room was large, with a balcony and a stunning view of the Alps; the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful; and the buffet breakfast was plentiful and good, if somewhat standard. This would be a five-star hotel, except that it seemed a little pricey compared to other Swiss hotels on our trip. We would recommend it, though.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days and had one of the most memorable experience of our trip. We reached Grindelwald in the evening and Gabrielle was at the train station to pick us up. The hotel was just a 5 minute ride from the train station and Gabrielle made arrangements for the dinner despite our delayed arrival.
The first thing you will notice about the place are the welcome hosts. They gave us several vegetarian options for dinner for our entire stay and suggested what all to visit. The dinner served is the best food we had in Grindelwald.
We had a room with a balcony with the view of mountains and the sound of the clock tower lends the place the old village feel. The hotel has a beautiful exterior decorated with flowers and you can sit in the balcony watching the majestic mountains as the last rays of the sun fall on those peaks. The hotel is the perfect place to stay in Grindelwald as they have done an excellent job of preserving the heritage of the place while offering all the modern amenities.

We were sad to only spend two nights in this lovely hotel and are already making plans to return. We had a balcony view of the mountains. We arrived back to our the hotel after an exhausting, yet exhilarating hike late for the dinner we had reserved. The owner was kind enough to check with kitchen and they served a delicious, traditional swiss meal. We were so grateful! The rooms were big, clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room. The view is breathtaking.

My wife and I stayed here for two days and thought the view was breathtaking. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the trio of the peaks Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. A wonderful place to sit and just look. The hikes around Grindelwald are numerous and the owners can direct you to some special ones. The owners are forth generation of this family run hotel and go totally out of their way to make your stay special. They can book tickets for attractions there at the hotel and really make your stay special. Our room and bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean and decorated very nicely.

The owner, Gary, has some great stories to tell of climbers who have stayed with them and made the "Eiger Climb" including the first man to have climbed the northwest "White Spider" side of Eiger in 1938. This same climber wrote the book, 7 Years In Tibet, which was later made into a movie based on his adventures in Tibet
Gary recommended a local restaurant which we went to the first night that was fine but also mentioned that they serve dinner and we found it to be the best meal we had in Switzerland.
Right across the street is a bakery which serves lunch and it is very good also.

Room Tip: Try for a room in the front of the hotel with a balcony facing Eiger

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights (Sept 27,28) and have just wonderful things to say about this charming jewel of a hotel. We arrived late in the evening for checkin and were greeted by tbuilding covered in beautiful flowers and swiss charm! The owners (wonderful couple) of the hotel who were the nicest and pleasant hosts greeted us personally and took care of our quick check-in process. They upgraded our room to a suite and the private balcony of our room had the most magnificient views situated right under the Alps. The hospitality and service of this charming hotel can compare to ANY 5 star hotel!! The next morning, the owners helped us plan our hikes and actually printed out our lift tickets so that we wouldn't have to wait in any lines...not that there were any. Late Sept, the entire area is practically empty. After a long day of hikes, we had dinner at the hotel and the sevice and food were great! Again, the owners made sure everything was perfect and went out of their way to accomodate anything we needed. On our last day, they even drove us to the train station so that we wouldn't miss our train! I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Grindelwald. Kudos to the owners for their hospitality and service.
