We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone from younger to older populations. Our hotel hosts, Gabby and Gary, were very gracious, warm and welcoming and speak several languages. This hotel has been family owned and run for over 100 years. We are of retirement age and our purpose for visiting Grindelwald was to go hiking. We found many hiking maps for several of the trails, however, one of the benefits of staying with this family hotel is that they are thoroughly knowledgeable about the trails and provided excellent advice for our daily hikes including the degree of difficulty. Webcams are set up on many of the trails and we were able to view each hiking area in the morning to assess weather conditions prior deciding which hike to take. We visited at the end of September so the weather conditions can change from day to day or morning to afternoon. The hotel offers a prix fixe meal (4 courses) nightly and we ate at the hotel two nights and thought it was delicious. In general, we found restaurants very expensive in Switzerland and thought the meals at this hotel were not overly priced, especially for what we were served. Overall, we thought this place was a very warm, wonderful place to stay and the owners anxious to make our stay a fantastic experience. Mission accomplished!
