I loved this place. I stayed here attending a conference. It is a little tired, but still clearly the best hotel in Grindelwald. This is underlined by its location near the main railway station that takes you to the main ski area (and everywhere else), just 10m (metres) away. It really is that convenient. The views are lovely. To cap it all the skiclub of Great Britain rep stays here and does drinks in the bar most evenings.
The snow by the way was amazing and the skiing fantastic.
I did not use the spa which is extensive, and smart. The gym is small but functional.
The food was lovely - I ate in every night, and it was beautiful cooking. Decent wine and great but expensive cocktails in the bar. Breakfasts were an extensive buffet and a la carte which was excessively pricey - why punish those who want "eggs Benedict" rather than bacon scrambled egg -irritating. The hotel has new owners, and I understand they have big plans to refurbish the hotel, so don't expect prices (which are not out of sight of other hotels) to hold. This will be a shame - if the place simply becomes full of overpaid pseuds it will not be improved - but for now it is nice and not snooty. The real stars of the place were the staff who were fantastic - the maitre'd in particular made you feel welcome - she was brilliant. The little touches were well executed. I was sad to go.
