We stayed at the Hotel Gletschergarten as part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. The location is perfect, at the quieter end of town by the church but only 1 stop (1 minute) by ski bus to the First gondola and 4 stops (7 minutes)...

This is an excellent hotel - in an incredibly beautiful part of Switzerland. Gary and his wife are so hospitable and take great care of their hotel. The rooms are very clean and spacious - and Gary has awesome knowledge of the area. Enjoyed our time so much at this hotel and in Grindelwald - you're in for a treat

The hotel is well situated at one end of the main strip, but they will pick you up from the train station for free if you need it. Its a short walk to the main area or to nearby trails. The hotel...

Just thinking about the room and the views of the mountain brings a smile to my face. We never go back to the same place but this will be an exception as we are planning to go back in the near future. The owners are lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them and the food was lovely too.

We stayed only one night at this hotel in early October 2016. We have only good things to say about it. The room was very cosy with a fantastic view of the mountains. The owners were very helpful and friedly.Had we known that this was such a gem, we would have made plans to stay longer. My wife loves cows,...
