We stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a touring holiday of Europe. This hotel was originally our second choice, but after having to re-book our holiday due to a death in the family, our first choice was no longer available. We were pleased that unfortunate circumstances led us to this hotel, as our balcony had possibly one of the best views we've ever had. The Eiger is such an imposing, impressive mountain, and the swiss chalets dotted across the valley were beautiful. It was very hot and sunny whilst we were there, and it was wonderful to sit on the balcony at night and listen to the tinkling of the cow bells across the meadows. Low light pollution level also means that the stars look brighter than they do at home!
We were on the first floor level, and this meant going downstairs from reception. All the receptionists we encountered during our stay were very smiley and welcoming. Our room was large, light and airy due to the large doors and windows leading onto the balcony. The bathroom less large, but was the only bathroom were encountered during our holiday that contained a full-size bath. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and smelled fantastic - it was like being in a spa all the time!
Breakfast was delicious. Lots of varieties of cereal, meats and cheeses, which were labelled.
Whilst there we reserved the sauna for our own private use. This was easy to arrange with reception, who only require 30 minutes' notice to prepare it for you. We were able to pop down to it from our room in our robes, without having to go through the public areas of the hotel.
Free Internet access was provided, and we used it suss out train times etc, although reception also has lots of free leaflets regarding local activities.
Grindelwald is a lovely (if not slightly expensive) place and provides fantastically easy access to all the walks in the area. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the station, which is conveniently in the middle of the village. We took the train to Kleine Scheidegg and walked the Eiger trail, and then down to Alpiglen before catching the train back to Grindelwald. We are not experienced walkers, but I would recommend anyone who is fairly able-bodied to do this. The mountains made it a very 'atmospheric' walk and it was one of the highlights of our holiday.
We also visited Zermatt whilst in Switzerland (separate review), but it wasn't a patch on Grindelwald and the Hotel Cabana. We would return tomorrow if we could.
