I stayed at the Derby for a week in March with a very large group and we couldn't have enjoyed the experience any more! To begin with we were a group of over 50 that arrived sporadically throughout the day and to my knowledge everyone was checked in and given their rooms smoothly and with a smile. The staff throughout our trip were a highlight.
Our rooms were really nice and kept very clean throughout our stay. We lucked out and had Eiger views from our balcony and it was just an incredible sight to wake up too! One of our two rooms was a family size room and it was very nice having the extra sitting space.
We had dinner all evenings at the hotel and the food was plentiful and really delicious. Each night had a different theme, and FIVE courses. I've never been so well fed in my life. The fondue night was an extra special treat - I was caught eating the cheese with a spoon towards the end!
The proximity to the train is really ridiculous, made getting to the hill so convenient. The ski storage facilities were great and easy to access around the back of the hotel or with an internal elevator. The only downside I would say is that the facility doesn't have a large whirlpool which is always a nice treat after a long day on the hills.
Excellent vacation in general and a perfect stay at the Derby!
