“20 years successive vacations says it all”
Reviewed 14 May 2009

First time in the Belvedere in 1987 and never missed a summer vacation since, and some winter ski vacations as well. We like Grindelwald and the region, the hotel is really nice and comfortable, the food is excellent and the Hauser family makes you fill good.

You have been coming to the Belvedere for 20 years already. Tripadvisor readers are for sure impressed, as such a loyalty is unusual.
Thank you so much for your great loyality. We are proud to have many guests from all over the world, who are visiting us regularly and that for 10, 20 or even more years. Some families have already been coming, when my grandfather, the founder of the hotel, was in charge. Of course also there are now the children and grandchildren visiting. Many guests of ours have become real friends, that's what makes our profession so special.
See you soon and thank you so much

It all began back in February 1983, when we asked our travel agent to find us a new location for our winter vacation. “What about Grindelwald”, he asked. Well, I never had a vacation there, but I remembered the Interlaken area well from the many times I had spent a summer vacation there with my parents. – So what could be so bad about that idea ??.

It turned out to be both love at first sight and also a continued love story. The friendly village in its beautiful surroundings, the endless ski slopes of the region, and last but not least – THE BELVEDERE !!!!. We were deeply impressed by the beauty of the hotel itself, the variety of its facilities, and the efficiency of the staff, presided over by this very professional Swiss hotellier with a humorous wink in his eye – the late Mr. Fritz Hauser. Swiss family hotel management at its best. So impressed were we actually, that towards the end of this our first vacation at the hotel, we made the strategic family decision to make the Belvedere our “home in Switzerland”. The next winter we were – of course – back at the Belvedere – this time with our young daughters, and the next year, and the next…………

The years passed, our girls grew up and had to stay home in order to attend high school, but Amalia and I were almost every winter at the Belvedere – some years even twice. We saw the hotel grow – both in size and quality of service – and we witnessed the change of generations. Silvia and Urs have certainly managed to inflate modernity in the sprit of the Belvedere, but progress has never been made without paying due respect and honor to the family tradition – We are sure that Fritz Hauser, from up above, is looking down at Belvedere with great satisfaction, very proud of the junior couple.

Back in January 2001 on the occasion of Dan’s 60th birthday, we succeeded in making an old dream come true. We managed to bring what was then our whole family from different parts of the world, including our four daughters, our son-in-law, our granddaughter, and one son-in-law-to-be – all of them – together for a winter vacation at the Belvedere. Words cannot describe the success of this complicated operation – a genuine Belvedere feast.

Throughout the years, many of our friends and family members have been convinced to try out this “Swiss craze” of ours – and guess what ??? – they all caught Belvedere fever and have come back numerous times.

Wishing the Belvedere, the Hauser family and all of the hotel staff continued success

Dear Kaznelson family
very many thanks for you review. Thank you also again for inviting my wife and me to the wedding of your lovely daughter. That was a wonderful experience.
And we of course can not thank you enough for your loyalty to the Belvedere for so many years already.
When guests become friends, that's always very special to us. We can hardly wait to see you again. Of course we also hope that your daughters will soon start coming back to the Belvedere with their families.
And for 2011 you might be planning something "BIG" again, that would be wonderful.
We are planning a new extention, with about 40 new junior-suites and suites, new restaurant, new lobby and much more. Also our Spa will grow, get 2-3 times bigger.
Until we get the building permit can however take quite some time.
Keep the fingers crossed, that we will succeed.
With best regards
Silvia & Urs, with Carole and Philip

Dear Karen
great that you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, small VIP ski groups in winter are always welcome, especially end of January, beginning of February and after mid of March.
Thanks for writing to Tripadvisor. You know it is impossible to always make everybody happy. The taste of people is so different. However if out of 100 guests we have 2 unhappy ones, they both write several reviews, with every guarantee. From the 98 happy ones however, I must consider myself lucky, if I get also 2 reviews.
Please tell all your friends about our wonderful valley and our hotel and hopefully we will also have the great pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
All the best

We had a great family vacation at the Belvedere & enjoyed autumn in Swtizerland.
Traveling with our 1 year old child couldn't have been made more enjoyable thanks to the hotel & it's staff:
- The room was spacious & very clean
- The child play room was a good option for the couple of snowy mornings that we experienced
- The view was wonderfull!
- The food was tasty, rich & of great variety. We enjoyed both breakfast & dinner every day over the course of 10 days & were surprised each time with new tastes. The service was excellent as well - we were always received with a smile. The fixed table with a view & the child seat & utenciles were a lovely touch & made us feel at home.
- The pool & outside Jaccuzi were relaxing and definitly make this hotel a #1 choice.
- The location is good for traveling around the area & enjoying the beautiful sites.

All in all this was one of our best vacations ever & this hotel is way up there with many 5 star hotels we have stayed in around the world.

We highly appreciate your wonderful review. Autumn can be the most beautiful time of the year in the mountains, but yes, sometimes we also get some early snow, which is usually disappearing, at least until November.
Our hotel is offering all kind of family rooms and family suites. The suites have extra small bedrooms for the children with also separate shower/WC. The biggest suite can take up to 9 persons and has got 4 bathrooms.
During school holidays, we sometimes have up to 40 children in the house. There parents and also all other guests are happy to know that there is a big games room for children on a lower floor. Like that the guests have peace and quiet in the lounges.
You know, some of these rooms have recently been renovated. The small room has been changed in a way, that also an adult is very comfortable there. Now these suites, outside of the school holidays,can be used for couples who usually sleep in two separate rooms as one of them is snoring.
Very ideal indeed.
We hope to see you soon at the Belvedere again and of course also your friends. How about trying the spring next time, when all the meadows are in bloom ? (Would be mid of May to Mid of June)

With best regards

Quite unbeatable experience. The friendliness of the staff, the facilities on offer and the wonderful food could not be faulted. I could sit and watch time go by on the balcony with the stunning views of the Eiger and the trains ascending to and returning from Kleine Scheidegg for hours. Not cheap but unquestionably good value for money. The owners, the Hauser family should be proud. I had previously visited the Belvedere twice in the 1990's and it is nice to see that essentially standards have been maintained while a classy upgrade of the rooms has been carried out.

A welcome return. Wonderful review, thank you so much. Yes, we are proud, very proud of our staff, who are helping us to make our guests happy, very proud of my grandparents, who over 100 years ago, with nothing in hand, as children of very poor farmers, managed to start such a business, very proud of my parents, who after the two wars, where soldiers occupied the hotel, managed to slowly renovate the hotel again and should I manage,to build an addition as it was planned by my grandfather in 1914 (could not be done because of the wars) and get the hotel to the size he wanted it to be, then I will even be proud of myself.
Everything is however only possible thanks to my wonderful wife Silvia and also thanks to my sister Susan.
Not to forget all the sisters and the brother of my grandfather and the sisters and sister-in-law of my father, who gave their life to the Belvedere, working there very hard, every day from early morning to late night. My father would however have never succeeded, would there not have been my mother, the "sunshine" of the hotel. Guests kept returning and returning because my mother had a way of dealing with people, that was worth much more, than our unique nature, good food and comfortable rooms.

Again many thanks for your review

Thank you very much for mentioning that Grindelwald is the ideal place to stay for a trip up to Jungfraujoch, Top of Europe, our No 1 excursion, which is to be found on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Jungfraujoch, where the longest glacier of the Alps, the Aletsch Glacier starts offers however also many other attractions, like the Ice Palace for example.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, but I hope you will return one day and not just stay for a short visit. Grindelwald, winter and summer, has so much more to offer.
Many of our guests, who return for 10, 20 years or longer, always discover something new and that after so many weeks in Grindelwald. Can you imagine, that I, as local, mountain climber and someone who loves hiking in the mountains, has not yet done all the trails available. And I am not 40 anymore.
You see, it worth coming back and discover.
All the best and thanks for writing to Tripadvisor

A supurb hotel in the fairytale town of Grindelwald! Our only compliant would possibly be that leaving the hotel was so difficult! The evening meals were supurb in both selection and quality, and their options for the health conscious were a nice touch. All the staff were incredbly friendly and approachable and the rooms were very spacious with lovely big balconies and bathrooms.

Wonderful, that you enjoyed our hotel that much. Thank you very much for the excellent review.
Buffets are part of our offer. Not only the big salad bar which we feature on 6 days a week or the cheese buffet, which is offered daily, also the big hors d'oeuvre buffet on Sunday's, the buffet with local specialities on Tuesday's and the big dessert buffet on Thursday's are always welcome by our guests. Guests booking "half board", have our 6 course dinner included, guests on bed and breakfast can eat a-la-carte or chose 3 or 6 courses of our daily menu. By the way, you need to stay one month, to get the same menu twice.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
