HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

It's conveniently located next to the Grindelwald train station where we could walk straight into the hotel with our luggages once we alighted from the train! The tourist information centre is also next to it and many restaurants and shops are within walking distance too... There's a large board displaying the train schedule for going to Jungfraujoch and Interlaken Ost...

We stayed for a week in early February - a Crystal package. You take 3 trains from Geneva airport. Lovely trains but changes can be stressful as you don't have a great deal of time. The staff were so welcoming and attentive. The food was excellent- we don't eat meat but that wasn't a problem. We had some really tasty...

We received a very warm welcome by the reception staff on our arrival, which was followed by superb care through some health difficulties. Staff members went out of their way to help us and we were very grateful. The room was fine supplying what we needed and the trains could not be heard. Food was basically good and the vegetarian...

The hotel has a great location right at the station, and is very clean, but a few elements really need working on. We had half board and the food was awful- worse than school dinners, no veggie option, and very variable service staff from very good to very poor. The bar area has the comfort of a doctor's waiting room....

Derby is located right beside the train station which is very convenient for visitors with lots of baggage or those who are worried about missing the train. Despite this, there's no noise from the trains at all. Stayed in the standard room which has a balcony. Room was small but clean and tidy. Love the balcony which has a great...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The very walls that greet you as you approach the Hotel Derby are steeped in history. The "Hotel de la Gare" was built here by the legendary Captain Gsteiger at the end of the 19th century. The same underlying principle applied then as it does now: we want to offer our guests a holiday that will long remain with them as a happy memory. Just travelling to the Derby is a pleasure in itself. The journey by rail could hardly be easier. We are passionate about hospitality and welcome you with a very special combination of attention to details and unobtrusive service. Stylish rooms and suites offer you plenty of space to unwind, relax and take in the splendid Mountain View. All rooms offer view to the surrounding mountains and are equipped with shower or bath/toilet, satellite TV, minibar and safe. The junior suites additionally provide a separate sitting corner. Most of the rooms have a balcony. In total 4 restaurants are at your choice. Either for an elegant dining experience, a tasteful 5-course-menu, a hearty Swiss dish or one of the various fondue specialities, our knowledgeable staff will be happy to advise you and to complete your stay by an attentive service. ... more   less
