My daughter (age 29) and I (age 65) stayed at the stupendous Hotel Gletschergarten for a week at the end of August/early September this year. We adored it! Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and we had great mountain views from our flower-bedecked balcony. Gaby and Gery (the owners) had expert advice for us every day and gave us maps...

This family run hotel is the best place to stay. The couple who own it - Gary and Gabriella couldn't have been more helpful. They picked us up from the main train station. They advised us on what activities to undertake and organised all the tickets for us. The room did not have a kettle, but they loaned us one....

We just returned home from an 8 day trip to London, France and Switzerland. We didn't think each day would improve upon the last, but they did.

Just finished 6 days in Gindelwald and we very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Gletchschergarten. This was a family vacation, with my wife, my 16 year old son, and me. The hotel was our base of operations, and each day we went out on an Alpine adventure. The hotel is a family business, located on the main street...

Our room was spacious with everything necessary for comfort and the view of Mount Eiger and the glacier from our balcony was stunning. The beds were extremely comfortable which is important after days of activity. But what makes this hotel head and shoulders above the others is the care the owners take of their guests. Practical help is given and...
