We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Oberland. The outstanding service from the owners, Mark and Ursula, in particular stands out. They were attentive and very helpful in offering advice to help make our visit to the Lauterbrunnen Valley more enjoyable (not to mention being ever-present!). I especially appreciated their generosity in offering me a free room upgrade in response to my having a couple of minor problems with my room. Now, this is a very old hotel, so you shouldn't expect spacious, modern rooms, but this is all part of the charm.
We had a couple of very good meals in the hotel's restaurant and enjoyed having a drink on the pleasant terrace out front. Free parking is available in an open lot across the street. One area for improvement I'd suggest is the wi-fi, which was not usable in my top-floor room (however, the signal is good in the reception room on the first level up, and there is also a computer there for guest use).
I recommend specifying a room with a balcony on the front of the hotel, to enjoy the views up and down the valley. Well worth the small additional cost!
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is spectacularly beautiful place and Lauterbrunnen provides a convenient base from which to see all the sights, with easy access by bus, rail, trail, or gondola. We especially enjoyed an easy one-hour walk from Lauterbrunnen to the Trummelbach Falls, a good way to spend a cloudy day.
