“Great service!”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

There is no use to repeat all the other positive remarks. It is fantastic! What is really great - and you will not find this very often in Switzerland - the water in the dinning room is free (sparkling or still). Also the prize for 5dl Ice-Tea is with CHF 5 very moderate.
Enjoy your stay!

The Kirchbuehl is a great hotel for families or couples. Pretty much everything seems to have been thought through from pick up at the beginning of your stay, to drop off after check out.

If you call ahead and let them know when you are arriving, the hotel bus will be there waiting for you at the train station in Grindelwald. Actually, the hotel will pretty much make the bus available for you all through your stay to drop you off in the village, or to pick you up if you have had dinner at a restaurant outside the hotel. Mostly, we preferred the 15 minute walk from the hotel into the middle of Grindelwald. In pretty much every respect the staff at this family run hotel are friendly, efficient and helpful.

The views from the rooms are spectacular. The food in any of the hotels restaurants is uniformly wonderful. Our family enjoyed the breakfast buffet so much that we tended to linger over breakfast each morning. In the late afternoons, after returning from skiing, we would have a snack of locally produced smoked meats and fresh bread while reading.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a family, I strongly recommend trying to book one of the chalet suites wit...

Great hotel in a stunning location, if you like views of snow covered mountains, alpine houses & the sounds of birds, cow bells and water flowing down the mountains. We had a superior room that was exceptionally clean & comfortable with a great balcony that had recliners and a table with chairs that we used when it was sunny. Every one who worked in the hotel was friendly and helpful, as well as able to converse in several languages. The food was very good and lots of it, including cake at 4pm each day! The Breakfast Buffet was excellent. We had half-board. The walk from the hotel to the town is steep and might not suit less able people. The hotel will collect & drop you off at the train station. Not a cheap option but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view, ask.

The views ot the rooms are excellent and also the location. But they can´t resolve the only problem that I had, some guests were shouting late at nigh and I called the reception and someone that was at her home couldn´t do something. Please think about it if you are planning to rest in this "quiet" place.

From the friendly pick u at the train station p to the warm reception at the desk and the magic of a room with a view, this hotel delivers on Swiss efficiency and politeness while providing a delicious menu. A little further out of town but they will help you with that too.

We rented a two-bedroom apartment for a long weekend. Everything from the telephone booking to being picked up and dropped off at the station was excellent. The apartment was clean and well appointed with a great view. We were very impressed by the friendliness and and helpfulness of the staff. Breakfast was also very good. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel, as we have a couple of favourite restaurants in the village.
