Great hotel!
  • Recommended hotel

  • Skiing and winter sports
  • March 2014
In short, a great hotel in a great location. Staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, speak good english, and are child-friendly. We were made to feel so welcome. Hotel is close to both the train to Kleine Scheidegg and the Gondola to First (both a 5 min walk). Rooms on the roadside can be a bit noisy but after a days skiing one tends to fall and stay asleep easily. This is the second time we've been and the reason we went back was the friendliness, the location and the overall ambience of the hotel - don't be deceived by ... the front of the hotel (which looks like an apartment block) - inside it has a wonderful atmosphere. The only negative I can think of is that the food offering for vegetarians (I am one) is somewhat limited. If you're a vegetarian you'll get a bit tired of endless trips to the salad bar and trying to explain to the cook that you don't want your fried noodles cooked in the same pan as the meat eaters variant. I would suggest keeping your options open for dinner and see some of the restairants in town. However, that aside this is an excellent hotel from where you will be able to enjoy a fantastic holiday in a beautiful place. read hotel review

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We traveled with very lively children. This was not a problem. The kids felt well cared for and enjoyed the great playroom from full heart. The breakfast buffet is very nicely equipped, with homemade bread. Delicious! If we tired of skiing came home, already waited coffee and freshly baked cakes to us. The price-performance ratio was right in any case! read hotel review

Perfect hotel for our honeymoon
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • Other stay
  • January 2014
An absolutely perfect stay at the hotel on our honeymoon. We stayed in the top floor panorama suite with a completely unobstructed views of the mountains from our windows and balcony, a jacuzzi, fireplace, and a great room overall. The staff accommodated every request made ahead of our arrival, and took care of ski tickets and other needs throughout the stay. Breakfast and afternoon coffee/tea were a great bonus with a variety of great food. And our massages and time in the Selfness spa were great as well. Quick walk to the train station and gondola, and centrally located downtown. ... Also, the hotel restaurant was probably the best we ate at while in Grindelwald. read hotel review
