We just returned from a 2 night stay at Grandhotel Giessbach. After having celebrated our 10th anniversary at their Park Restaurant 5 years ago, my husband decided to surprise me with a stay there for our 15th anniversary.
It was PERFECT!!!!!!!! Everything from the breath-taking views (of the lake, Alps and waterfall) to the antique furniture, from the complimentary coffee bar to the gourmet restaurants classifies this hotel as an absolute gem!
The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and attentive; after being made aware that we were celebrating an anniversary extra details were added to our make our dinner table as beautifully decorated as on a wedding day!
The hotel was built around 1875 - so don't expect an modern design hotel - but isn't lacking in modern comforts!
The location is great for hikes of different lengths and is the perfect starting point for outings in the Bernese Alps or in the areas of Brienz or Interlaken.
This place is an absolute MUST if you are in Switzerland!!!
