We stayed at the Chalet just across the street from the main hotel (each morning on the way to breakfast you pass a lovely bakery and the smell is divine! I recommend picking up snacks for later!) We had 3 rooms, a hall, a big balcony, and a full bathroom in what is set up like an apartment, although there is no kitchen. It was perfect for our family of 4. Our kids each had their own bedrooms, one had a twin size bed, a TV, and a sink, one had a full size bed, and the master had a king, a couch, and a TV. It was very spacious and after traveling together we for an extended vacation and sharing one single room in some accommodations it was VERY nice to spread out!!!
Upon arrival I borrowed the WIFI at a hotel near the train station to call the hotel. Gerhy came to pick us and bring us to the Chalet. Such a nice personal touch!!! We ate buffet breakfast in the main hotel each morning. One evening we had the set menu for dinner which we enjoyed very much. I even did 2 loads of laundry in the hotel one evening. I wish I had done a third load!!! We purchased all our excursion tickets with Gabriella or Gerhy at the front desk and they helped us figure out the best plans for our time spent in Grindelwald. We loved our stay and highly recommend it to families.
The view from the balcony is exceptional!!!! Its like having the Eiger all to yourself!
It's a very short walk to town for shops, restaurants, and the Coop grocery. Switzerland is crazy expensive! I highly suggest hitting Coop for snacks, drinks, and and picnic lunches.
