“Another excellent visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is a lovely hotel regardless of the time of year. Great base for walking or skiing holidays or just enjoying the scenery.

Slightly out of the village centre but walking distance if that's what you want to do.

Looking forward to returning to Grindelwald and our next stay.

amazing location, I was lucky enough to get the apartment with the terrace. the view in morning was amazing. the apartment was well equipped with all the essentials, clean and elegant. the hotel
staff was very friendly especially Miss Christine
however, one drawback is that the location was very high and there is a distance of hiking from the nearest bus stop at alpenblick.
This little problem wouldn't exist if the bus would stop at the hotel

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel in Grendelwald and I would recommend this hotel without reservation. The staff is superb, the location is just out of town (which I greatly prefer) and we were there slightly off season when the tour groups (which I understand also frequent this hotel) were not in evidence. The buffet breakfast is superb. The dinner dining in the more formal dining room ("Marmite" if my memory serves me correctly) was excellent, as was our one-time dinner in their stuebli (cheese fondue for me) - but be certain to make your reservations early with the front desk as seating is limited. It was my impression that the dining is one of the best in town.
The health spa downstairs is quite small but adequate when not crowded and the rooms more functional than spectacular but the general ambiance of the hotel is warm and inviting. I would stay here again if returning to Grindelwald for its world class hiking.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with friends

My wife and i spent 2 nights in Grindelwald at the end of September, and while the weather was not perfect, everything about Hotel Kirchbuehl was. Our room overlooked the mountains with the sound of church and cowbells drifting thru the windows all day long. We dined intheir stuebli twice, and the fondue chinoise (meat foundue in broth) was a highlight for me. The staff was attemtive and very helpful, and the facilities are just right. We even chanced upon their sister hotel in Bort while straggling down First in the rain, and it too is a place we will return to.

Room Tip: Overlooking the mountains

We stayed here for 3 nights in late September while travelling around Jungfrau Region. The hotel service is excellent with very friendly and helpful staff:) And special thanks to Mr Gensch and Ms Gerber for making our stay memorable as I celebrated my birthday with my husband.

This hotel provides a lovely chalet atmosphere with lovely decor, amenities, and restaurants. The breakfast is first-rate as well. The service was excellent. If you like the typical 'swiss' cuisine, you must book early as the restaurant has limited seating. However, the larger restaurant has a great menu as well.

Room Tip: The rooms are very quiet due to the location of the hotel. I have stayed in this hotel several time...

We were lucky to get a room with a terrace overlooking the mountains and the Grindelwald Valley, and the views alone were worth the price. The rooms are spacious and airy, very neat and clean, and the bed comfortable. Selection of restaurants, which were good, but, as with everything else in Switzerland, expensive. Breakfast was excellent offering a good range. Staff very friendly and helpful. Parking is not an issue, although you should consider taking the train – stunning views. One word of warning – The Hotel is situated on a hill out of town, not an easy walk with luggage. The Taxi service around town is not frequent, and the buses only travel half way and only until early evening. So if you go into town for dinner, getting home can be interesting. Elsewise the Hotel is very good and we would recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask fir a terrace room on the first floor - stunning views of the valley and mountains
