We stayed here just for a day 24 hours to be precise. Lovely hotel not luxurious by any standards but when you are out for most of the day what you look for is a comfortable well appointed room. Some people might find it odd but we found the location just awesome. Its practically on the railway platform. So on...

Our family has stayed at the Derby in the past and has enjoyed its great hospitality and atmosphere. We recently returned as a family for a week's skiing, and were not disappointed. The staff and owners were exceptional in their friendliness and helpfulness - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable and clean - we can recommend...

The hotel is situated in an ideal location by the train track for visiting Kleine Scheidegg. The facilities for storing skis and boots are excellent. The free WiFi didn't have complete coverage in our room, but it was fast enough when it was connected. The room was a good size with a balcony although it would be nice to see...

Well, to be honest, not much had changed - at least to the perception of the guest. The revamping of the rooms continues (mine had been done, whoopee!). The welcome on arrival from the fantastic team on reception was as warm as always. The breakfast menu now also offered bacon and eggs as well the meats, fruits, cheeses, cereals etc....

My husband and I spent a fortnight here with friends, enjoying a ski-ing holiday in the lovely area around Grindelwald. The hotel's situation by the railway station is very convenient, both for arrival at Grindelwald from Interlaken Ost station and also for accessng the huge ski area of Kleine Scheidegg by mountain railway.. For those wishing to ski the First...

Just back from a fantastic week skiing the Grindelwald, Wengen and Murren slopes. We chose The Derby Hotel for it's close proximity to the railway station and the bus stops, both required to get to the slopes but also it has free wifi throughout the hotel and free entry to the sports centre pool which we found to be close...

We had a wonderful time staying in Derby! Great stuff and customer service. The reception stuff is very kind and helpful. Very full and tasty breakfast. And the main plus of this hotel for those who come to ski is a super great location. You can see trains from the balcony. But you don't hear any of them if you...

My first visit back to the Derby for three years and pleased to say its still number one in my book for position and the welcome you receive. Nothing is too much trouble.

I spent a week at the Derby travelling alone for a ski holiday. I had a bedroom that looked straight out onto the mountains through large (floor to ceiling) glass doors. The room was clean and the bed was comfy, really enjoyed laying in bed in the morning looking out onto the mountain. The room had a small balcony with...

Stayed here arranged through Crystal Ski 3-10 January 2015. Room was typically alpine- could probably do with refurbishing, particularly the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the bed-linen good quality and changed midweek. The standard of cleanliness was very good. The view of the Eiger from the balcony was fantastic !

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
