After much searching for a modern contemporary hotel near grindelwald we settled on the Hotel Aspen - the drive up through the valley to the hotel is fabulous and the setting wonderful with stunning mountain views. On entering the very smart hotel we noticed a number of flies in the reception area which we thought was a little unpleasant - we were given a tour of the hotels amenities ( didnt take up the offer of the naked spa - well we are English !!) and then went to our room- thankfully it was lovely with a beautiful bathroom (no flies here) - we ate in the hotel restaurant on the evening and again I was bothered by the amount of flies around us and our food- none of the hotel staff seemed remotely concerned - the next morning for breakfast the buffet was we felt totally unacceptable the flies were everywhere and made worse by the fact none of the food items were covered - so the fabulous array of choice was totally lost on us and this was made worse by the hotels apparent lack of concern. On checking out we mentioned the number of flies especially in the restaurants as it had spoilt our stay and were told in no uncertain terms that "this is Switzerland this is what its like" feeling we had no right to comment.
We were first time visitors to Switzerland and we felt the hotel could have explained this fact to us we are regular travellers and are very careful about our choice of hotels and therefore felt only right to say that the hotel as a whole was nice ( if not expensive which yes we do know "this is what it's like in Switzerland " ) however if you do not like flies around you or your food maybe look for hotels which are not located up in the meadows.
