We really enjoyed our stay here, but it's definitely not for people who don't like quirkiness. Our room was small but comfortable, with a magnificent view. (They had space, so they upgraded us.) The shared parlor is comfortable and full of old lodge oddities like board games and sheet music. Wi-Fi in the parlor only, but it's free and good. Breakfasts were good. The people were very kind, and very helpful. The location is excellent, far from the tourist vortex, and it was very nice taking long walks nearby.

Quirky? Well, there is an older Japanese man who works on a boat in the driveway. Our hall was dark (no windows) so you had to hit a switch, when they could have put in motion detectors. If you expect a Holiday Inn, this is not your place. But it was definitely our kind of place and we'd happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view -- you can ask. Also, if you're booked into a cheaper room, it wouldn't hurt to ask for an upgrade.

This hotel indeed is not a 3 or 4 stars. So one has to take that into account. However, the hotel has a special charm and one can be assured when you are in the "living" room in the evening after a day of sking one starts to enjoy the place much more. With a litlle bit of luck someone plays the piano. The Schild family tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible and will do anything they can you ask for. I have frequently used their home PC to check mails and similar. A lift to the train station with their small jeep at no charge is not what a lot hotels do. The rooms are tidy and clean but indeed basic. Breakfast is excellent and combined with the nice view priceless. If you love nice and "top of the bill" food in the evening you want to look for alternatives in town. Dinner is good but has no waauw factor. We often stayed in the family room (3rd floor) which sleeps 4 and then you get a very good deal I think. If you are keen on a modern hotel with all amenities from a to z then this is not the hotel for you. If you want a hotel (or pension) where you feel at home and takes care of your special needs (including children) then this hotel is a very good option. Also the skibus stops at the bottom of the hill ( = 50 meters away) so there is hardly any walking involved. People who complain of the fact it lies on a small hill (hey we're in Switserland .... !! ) forget the nice views you get over the Eiger. Also the walk on the Terrassenweg to town which runs by the hotel is very nice to do.
I would recommend this hotel for families with children or couples who want value for their money. The (free) parking lot just beside the hotel is very convenient and same is the ski storage rooms for boots & skis. Please note that on new Year's eve the "Bell Walkers" also visit this hotel as the Schild family is known very well. I was also told they have a small mountian chalet you could also visit - check with them upon arrival and when booking ask for a view on the Eiger or on the West. Rooms on the East are also Ok but have only a view on the village/hill and are less pricey.

Stayed here for one night while skiing in Grindelwald.

The Bellary is a perfectly comfortable little hotel. Nothing fancy, but fine for a night or two.

Breakfast is good and plentiful, and there's free wifi (code is written on a notice by reception desk).

There's not much to interest you in the hotel itself (no bar) but it's a 5 or 10 minute walk down the hill into town proper.

Hotel Bellary is a great hotel value in Grindelwald. It is located about 10 - 15 minutes from the main train station (walking). The bus also runs very frequently and stops next to Hotel Bellary. The staff at Hotel Bellary were extremely nice. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast in the morning far surpassed my expectations. We stayed here during a ski weekend and it was fantastic. They offer a ski house to store your gear and were gracious enough to keep our baggage in our room even after checkout (so we could ski all day). I will definitely return to hotel bellary if I return to Grindelwald.
