To be fair, I visited Pension Gimmelwald twice, the first for just a beer on the terrace, and the second for another of the same beer and a lovely little platter of meat and cheese for lunch. The owners are friendly, the service good, the...More

Stopped here for a break during a bike ride around the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The staff was amazing and the prices were very reasonable. Atmosphere was also great!!

Good food. Tucked away with a killer view. Unlike anywhere I've ever been. Stopped on our hike from Murren and took the cable car down to the valley floor.

We looked forward to two nights here as it's a Rick Steves favorite. However, the Pension and the town didn't deliver. The weather didn't help - we didn't get the fabulous views we saw from Murren right before. We arrived early in the last week...More

After a great day of hiking, we stopped here for a beer. The patio outside has stunning mountain vistas. The Honesty shop next door is owned by the folks that own the Pension. Pick out your item, put the money into an envelope-there is no...More

We ate at this property 3 nights in a row...each night we had homemade soup and homemade bread with a main course - really good meals at an affordable price (since food is very expensive in Switzerland. The drinks were very reasonable too.

Stopped for a light lunch. Very fresh ingredients, well presented. One of the biggest surprises of the trip. Much less expensive than most of the Murren restaurants, and better quality. Friendly staff, which was also unusual in the area!

You already list this as a hotel. I didn't stay at the hotel so can't rate it but want to provide this information: I wandered into Gimmelwald down the path from Murren and met the owner, David, hiking up the path. He is an attractive Brit and very knowledgeable regarding hiking and other activities in the area. I had a coffee on his terrace and later a couple of pints of beer while chatting with him and others. The view from the terrace is fantastic across the deep Lauterbrunnen valley to the mountains on the other side. I didn't get to try his food as the chef hadn't arrived yet, and I didn't see his rooms in the pension part, but this place is worth a try at least to sit on the terrace for a coffee/beer and enjoy the view. Rick Steves also lists it in his book on Switzerland.
