Stopped for a late lunch on our way back to Wengen during a skiing trip. We were a group of about 9 and found the restaurant more or less empty. The problems started when we asked for some tap water to share with our food only to be informed that was a 2 franc charge per litre. Then when two wanted to share a rosti they were told there would be a charge of 3 francs for an extra plate. We started to wonder what else they could charge extra for! Perhaps these extra fees will seem insignificant to some but surely there must be better ways to ensure profitability without getting up the customer's nose?
The hotel is just too good. The environment is superb and the people around there are friendly.. it's a perfect place to be. The hiking to the Grossesedeigg would be a great things to be done during the weekends over there.
We stayed for two nights in this very nice hotel 40 mins walk downhill through forest and meadow to Grindelwald (although staying at hotel has benefit of free use of 5 mins bus to and from town). It is half way down from Grosse Scheidegg, and opposite the upper glacier valley. The c800 steps to the viewing platform mentioned in our guidebook are unfortunately no longer open. The staff at Hotel Wetterhorn were consistently very polite. The room was very modern and well appointed, with comfy beds and an excellent shower. We would've liked access to a kettle in the room but realise it is standard not to have one in this area.
We stopped for a late lunch at this lovey small hotel / restaurant. We had the most Devine melted Swiss cheese on bread with a fried egg on top. It was so filling we didn't eat again. The service was good and English spoken well. The food was a reasonable price and well presented. If you are walking across from Pfingstedd on the circular walk to Grindelwald then it's an excellent place for a drink and food. Thank you
Wetterhorn is located a little outside of Grindelwald. You need a car or to take the postbus to/from the centre, because it is to far to walk after having walked in the mountains. The hotel itself is beautiful. "Swiss style" with lots of wood. The rooms that are on the "Eiger side" of the hotel have a stunning view, the other rooms "just" a wonderful view. Free parking is available for guests, breakfast and dinner were great. Personnel/Owners were very friendly. It is a bit pricey for Europeans, but compared to the rest of the hotels in Grindelwald quite reasonable. When booking a room, also book dinner. It's much cheaper than dining out in any of the good restaurants in Grindelwald or paying seperately in the Wetterhorn Hotel.
as we could walk to it from the chalet we had rented. The walk itself was beautiful and the Hotel Wetterhorn is just the right distance to reward yourself with a beer. There is a car park, and other walks from the hotel which we followed. it is not well known and often, we were the only people there. We had a meal in the restaurant which was one of the best ever. We had perch, a fish you don't see very often, and it was cooked to perfection. But the real attraction of this little gem is sitting outside and looking at the Eiger, Schreckhorn and Wetterhorn mountains and just marvelling at the majesty of the alps.
Hotel Wetterhorn is probably one of the best hotels nestled among the alps and place to stay away from Interlake during your visit to Jungfrau. One of the oldest hotels in the area with the best modern amenities in the room. The got a good cozy lovely restaurant that swiss and italian food. Just amazing views of the alps and wonderful hospitality by Mr. Domique. Most recommended.
Didn't stay at the hotel but stopped by for lunch after a hike to the base of the glacier nearby. Really nice food with generous portions (apfelstrudel was great!) and very friendly service. Nice atmosphere.
Grindelwald had very few places open when we visited in late April so we drove right up to the end of the resort, to the Hotel Wetterhorn that we remembered from many years ago. They welcomed us with amuse bouches and served us very good dinner, schnitzels with all the trimmings, a good bottle of wine and coffee for a very reasonable price. Most of the menu was dauntingly expensive but there were 'pensioners' portions on the back pages that were more than adequate and about half the price. The service was friendly and the whole experience, with spectacular sunset views of the Eiger and Wetterhorn, was very pleasing. The large parking area outside is pay parking but is free after 19.00
This is a family owned hotel situated at the outskirts of Grindelwald. Parts of the hotel were successfully restored about 5 years ago, whereas the dining rooms have been kept in their old traditional style. Our bedroom was beautiful in it's simplicity. It was very cleverly designed and had big windows overlooking the dramatic mountains (and a big car park). The service was first class and so was the evening meal and breakfast the following morning. We were well looked after. A perfect stop-over on a very wet mountain trek. Can definitely be recommended.
