When I saw it was beside a railway station I had reservations. Thinking it would be a noisy location. I was so wrong. Great to have the trains almost on your door step, for travelling around and it was quiet at night ! The hotel is old Swiss type decoration . Very clean, comfortable rooms. Lovely old style dining room....

We were glad at how nice the Derby was inside! The desk staff, had excellent customer service! Very friendly and very helpful! We asked for 2 electrical outlet adapters and they didn't charge the $10 deposit for each one, just asked us to be sure and bring them back! The rooms are a nice size also.

We returned to the Derby in March for a ski trip, having visited 2 years earlier & it's as good as ever. We were given a free room upgrade to a south facing (224) which was lovely with a view of the Eiger & very much appreciated. The room was absolutely fine with a lovely bathroom. Very, very minor niggles...

We stayed here just for a day 24 hours to be precise. Lovely hotel not luxurious by any standards but when you are out for most of the day what you look for is a comfortable well appointed room. Some people might find it odd but we found the location just awesome. Its practically on the railway platform. So on...

The hotel is situated in an ideal location by the train track for visiting Kleine Scheidegg. The facilities for storing skis and boots are excellent. The free WiFi didn't have complete coverage in our room, but it was fast enough when it was connected. The room was a good size with a balcony although it would be nice to see...

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
