We stayed at the Bodmi when it first opened 12 years ago, and dreamed of returning. When we arrived again last month, I wondered if the hotel could live up to our memories. Not only was it as good as we remembered, it was better.
The location is unparalled, with views from all rooms (with big balconies!) of the peace and splendor that is Grindelwald. The large rooms are comfortable, with all the amenities (except laundry--there's a tiny laundromat in the town), but it's the owners, staff and food that make the hotel extraordinary. We were welcomed like family by the owners, and treated with cheerful (but not at all intrusive) friendliness by the staff. And the food was simply amazing, from the ample breakfast buffet to the best dinners we had anywhere in a two week trip through three countries. Even the hotel's goats were friendly--a playful treat for our 10 year old.
Being away from the town center, the hotel is very quiet. But the town is only about a 10 minute walk (downhill--the return trip isn't strenuous) or a short drive away. Ample parking is available on site (as is a ski school for the winter). For vicarious thrills, parasailers from nearby First land on the meadow right next to the building.
FYI, reservations can be made online, or by emailing the hotel. We checked availability and made an intinerary change directly with the hotel, which promptly responded to our emails.
We'll be back, hopefully soon!
