Just spent two weeks in this lovely old hotel . It is a family run hotel with friendly helpful staff of many nationalities, all of whom made our stay very enjoyable. Our train arrived very quietly at the station in front of the hotel and we were initially welcomed by Evi the very friendly receptionist and directed to our room...

Our room had a great mountain view and spacious. It was just a few steps away from the train station which was really convenient. We liked the breakfast. The staff was friendly too. However, the pillows were too soft.

We loved the extremely comfortable beds and our wonderful little balcony facing the Eiger. Everyone working here was very warm and friendly in a truly genuine-seeming way. The location was great, too -- right by the train station and a close walk to restaurants, shops, etc., and no train noise at all. The breakfast included tons of delicious choices, and...

My husband and I had booked a superior twin room months ago and had requested for a room on the top floor. However when we checked-in, we were given a small, pokey room with a very small bathroom the 3rd floor : it did not look like a "superior" room at all. At night we had to keep the balcony...

The Hotel Derby has a charming outdoor cafe with quick service for train travelers. The staff were accommodating serving drinks and taking care of payment for us as we rushed to meet our group for the train. Worth a longer stop to enjoy the town and scenery.

We didn't stay at the hotel but randomly dropped in here to eat, we were staying elsewhere but our hotel restaurant prices were pretty steep and the eateries in town offered a bit of variety and more atmosphere. We sat at the outdoor tables, the place being pretty much part of the rail station buildings is very busy from passing...

Stayed at hotel Derby for one night on August 11th 2016 but wished we could have stayed longer. The location is very very convenient. Right next to the train station and across the road from convenience stores, shopping and plenty of restaurants. There's so much to do here such as first, pfinstegg and of course the trains to the top...

Great hotel in a very convenient location close to the train station. Nice, clean room with wonderful views. Breakfast was good with a variety of food. It was warm so we had to leave our windows open and it was kind of noisy.

We visited as part of a Thomson holiday in June and chose the Derby Hotel for its central location. Our room was on the fourth floor with a balcony over looking the station which did not bother us at all and in many ways we found this quite fascinating. Our room had a new bathroom and the room itself without...

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
