This was a wonderful experience. I originally found this hotel on karenbrown.com. Gary picked us up at the train station; although the hotel is only a 15-minute walk from the station, it is uphill. We had a large room on the front, which faced the Lower Glacier and the Eiger. The room was spacious and quiet. There is a comfortable parlour at the back of the hotel where it was nice to have a drink before dinner.
The hotel was able to sell us the train and gondola passes we needed, and Gary advised us what time of day to go to the Jungfraujoch and to First.
We ate at the hotel all three nights. The dinners were excellent. Gary, Gabriela, and the rest of the staff were very attentive with the dinner service. One could see that they wanted everything to be perfect, and it was. We thought the dinners were an excellent value.
I cannot say enough about Gary and Gabriella. They are wonderful hosts. They take very good care of their guests. They are very pleasant and helpful. We strongly recommend this hotel.
