Reviewed 22 February 2014

stayed here for 5 nights with my family ( 2 children )
my review is that the hotel need to improve the service ( the staff), this is to me a 3star not a 4 star. we had 2 rooms one is renewed but not the other one….
at the reception there were nice people when we came and left… service minded
at the breakfast not…. the people there were unhappy and did not like what they were doing

at the bar/restaurant there were 2 men…. one namedTracey was great… excellent waiter but the other men ( did not remember his name) should do something else with his time then serving people in my opinion

we had dinner one night and the food was very good

Need to step up a little bit ….. this is to expensive compare ( two other families/friends stayed at 3star hotel and they payed much less… but the rooms and etc where very good.

Will choose another hotel next time in Grindelwald

We spent Christmas here and the warmth we received from all the staff was beyond words. Everyone takes a lot of effort to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. The meals are in abundance and the menu is fantastic. A very comfortable, enjoyable and memorable 5days!

Fantastic location, glorious views: We used the hotel as a base for our skiing trip (a family of six well travelled folk from 15 to 55) and it was a wonderful, warm haven. The hotel is delightful and charming, the rooms well appointed with glorious views and very comfortable. The staff were gracious, professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly - a warm welcome and attentive response always on hand. The cuisine was really very good indeed with a wonderful breakfast which set us up for the day.
We have been charmed and delighted and will return.

Room Tip: all the rooms were of a high standard in our experience

This is a lovely hotel regardless of the time of year. Great base for walking or skiing holidays or just enjoying the scenery.

Slightly out of the village centre but walking distance if that's what you want to do.

Looking forward to returning to Grindelwald and our next stay.

amazing location, I was lucky enough to get the apartment with the terrace. the view in morning was amazing. the apartment was well equipped with all the essentials, clean and elegant. the hotel
staff was very friendly especially Miss Christine
however, one drawback is that the location was very high and there is a distance of hiking from the nearest bus stop at alpenblick.
This little problem wouldn't exist if the bus would stop at the hotel

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel in Grendelwald and I would recommend this hotel without reservation. The staff is superb, the location is just out of town (which I greatly prefer) and we were there slightly off season when the tour groups (which I understand also frequent this hotel) were not in evidence. The buffet breakfast is superb. The dinner dining in the more formal dining room ("Marmite" if my memory serves me correctly) was excellent, as was our one-time dinner in their stuebli (cheese fondue for me) - but be certain to make your reservations early with the front desk as seating is limited. It was my impression that the dining is one of the best in town.
The health spa downstairs is quite small but adequate when not crowded and the rooms more functional than spectacular but the general ambiance of the hotel is warm and inviting. I would stay here again if returning to Grindelwald for its world class hiking.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled with friends

My wife and i spent 2 nights in Grindelwald at the end of September, and while the weather was not perfect, everything about Hotel Kirchbuehl was. Our room overlooked the mountains with the sound of church and cowbells drifting thru the windows all day long. We dined intheir stuebli twice, and the fondue chinoise (meat foundue in broth) was a highlight for me. The staff was attemtive and very helpful, and the facilities are just right. We even chanced upon their sister hotel in Bort while straggling down First in the rain, and it too is a place we will return to.

Room Tip: Overlooking the mountains
