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 in the chalet of hotel Derby. It was opposite the hotel, and on the main road to the village, a 2 min walk and your in the centre of Grindelwald, with shopping, supermarket, the tourism office, and swimming pool/sauna/ice rink etc. Perfectly placed for the train to Kleine Scheidegg, or Interlaken, ( just across the road) or a...

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
