“Excellant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Not having been to Switzerland before we must have landed on our feet on choosing this hotel and location. Just a few minutes from the railway station it was easy to get to. On arriving at night we were shown to our room which was clean and tidy. We went down to the dining room and had an excellant four course meal. In the morning our breath was took away from the view from the balcony of the Alps. The buffet breakfast was served in a differant restuarant than dinner and also had amazing views of the Alps,
The hotel gives a bus pass which entitled you to free bus travel on local buses. This was ideal as the bus station was across the road.
I highly recommened this hotel to anyone

Our room with a balcony had first class views of the beautiful Swiss alps. The hotel was brilliantly located with the train station, bus station and restaurants a minute or two away! It was an absolute bonus that we could access for free, the recovery spa at the 4 star hotel down the road. This certainly heightened our stay! Breakfast and the girls at the front desk were very helpful and the only bother was that our wifi did not work very well from our room.

We stopped here for a week at the beginning of September after a recommendation by a friend. We were not disappointed.Large airy bedroom with a balcony overlooking the Eiger and in a very central position only 200 metres from the train station, the bus station and the village centre. Excellent self-service hot and cold breakfast again with fine views and an outside lounge area. We looked forward to a drink on the popular terrace each day before we ate from the a la carte menu every night and not just because we were too tired to look elsewhere after all the hiking! The food is brilliant with a very large choice and is capped off by very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. Switzerland is expensive, but this hotel is very reasonable - if only all hotels designated 3 stars were as good. A great privately owned hotel and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a balconies with beautiful views facing the Eiger.

Better late than never. We stayed here last winter. We had 2 rooms with an adjoining bathroom which was great for the children and us. Lovely view of the Eiger :-) Close to the train station.
Breakfast was very good, service friendly. We ate out but the food looked very good in the restaurant.

We did not stay here but had a wonderful meal at the restaurant with nice views. Delicious salad with fresh perch and classic rosti potatoes with sausage. Yum! Also had some nice local wine. Near train station.

Our first trip to Switzerland. It was marvellous. this hotel is a gem. Views of the Eiger from many rooms. Half board better value than a la carte. My wife is food sensitive for many dishes and the hotel willingly and gladly cooked the food she brought with her - not something often done with graciouseness.

Breakfasts generous with cooked or continental - or both.

Staff very friendly. Free WiFi. Maps provided for walking. Overwhelmingly helpful.

Room Tip: One with a view of the sun setting on the Eiger

I recently went back to this perfectly located hotel in Grindelwald (close to the main station, the bus station and the city centre) as it was a place we used to stay in as a family for a week or two 40 years ago and we all have very fond memories of it. And there was much to recognize! Especially the reception area which is still at the top of a steep flight of stairs, and the carpets, corridors and the rooms but the facilities (elevators, TV, internet connection etc) have now been modernized. I would only say watch out for all the uneven floors and steps (inside the rooms, to the balcony, in the corridors) - for elderly guests.. It's actually quite expensive as it comes but (everything is in Grindelwald thanks to the popularity of its location!) you pay for the location mostly and the staff are friendly, yes service is with a smile. You get a nice breakfast buffet in the morning and there is a good restaurant for meals. Upon arrival, we were given free tickets for the local bus and free tickets for the sports' centre which includes a great swimming pool, ice rink etc..We were well informed about what to do and even got a summary of the weather and the day's events posted on our door in the morning. This hotel is somehow linked with another one up the road: the Hotel Spinne which has a small and nice spa to use. So whether you wish to go in the summer or the winter (we've stayed here in both seasons) and you don't go with enormous expectations on the culinary side when you choose half board, you'll be happy. We always enjoy our stays here.

Room Tip: Rooms that look out onto the Eiger are lovely, with a balcony to sit on but they have the noise of t...
