The sign outside said "The Best Fondue in Town" - so we just had to try it. And it was. The restaurant was fairly empty until a group of Chinese tourists came in - but the staff was friendly and the service was good. We had a traditional fondue and it was sooo good! mind you, I don't think I...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

It's conveniently located next to the Grindelwald train station where we could walk straight into the hotel with our luggages once we alighted from the train! The tourist information centre is also next to it and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance too... There's a large board displaying the train schedule for going to Jungfraujoch and Interlaken Ost...

This leg of our European vacation was our favorite. Our room had a deck overlooking Mt Eiger. It was laid back and beautiful. Words cannot express the beauty there. The hotel is right next to the train station, so we didn't have to lug our bags around. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and had...

We had a pleasant stay for two nights. We had a small suite with two balconies, one for the living area and another for the bedroom. The hotel sits at the end of the commuter train station, but only passenger trains use these tracks and the trains must cease at night as it is surprisingly quiet. Doors and windows open...

We stayed at the Derby Swiss hotel two nights. Service was great, rooms were clean, and Continental breakfast has a wide selection including cereals, pastries, meat/cheese, eggs, bacon etc. Hotel is steps from train station and within a short walking distance to First (which we thought was better than Top of Europe). We used the 4 day Swiss travel pass...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The very walls that greet you as you approach the Hotel Derby are steeped in history. The "Hotel de la Gare" was built here by the legendary Captain Gsteiger at the end of the 19th century. The same underlying principle applied then as it does now: we want to offer our guests a holiday that will long remain with them as a happy memory. Just travelling to the Derby is a pleasure in itself. The journey by rail could hardly be easier. We are passionate about hospitality and welcome you with a very special combination of attention to details and unobtrusive service. Stylish rooms and suites offer you plenty of space to unwind, relax and take in the splendid Mountain View. All rooms offer view to the surrounding mountains and are equipped with shower or bath/toilet, satellite TV, minibar and safe. The junior suites additionally provide a separate sitting corner. Most of the rooms have a balcony. In total 4 restaurants are at your choice. Either for an elegant dining experience, a tasteful 5-course-menu, a hearty Swiss dish or one of the various fondue specialities, our knowledgeable staff will be happy to advise you and to complete your stay by an attentive service. ... more   less
