There is only one thing that is worse than an unstaffed hotel: a very large poorly staffed hotel with lots of snow outside. Suddenly you feel like you are reenacting The Shining. Eerie! On a more serious note, the Sunstar Hotel in Grindelwald is an excellent property. It is located across the road from the ski-lift,15 mins walk from the...

This hotel is quite large, but the owners are never far and always check in to make sure that everything is OK so it still has the feel of a small, family-run hotel. Easy to get to from the train station (the hotel picked us up) and very easy check in. Easy to get to the first lift uptowards 'First'....

After our first trip in 2009, we left hoping we could return one day. We were able to visit again in August 2013, and the hotel met or exceeded our expectations. The food is our favorite, dinners were outstanding, and even the items we were hesitant to try, were delicious. The half board is the way to go since food...

We stayed in September 2012 Good hotel but be prepared to pay a premium price, but then again, it seems that everything in Grindelwald and Interlaken is expensive. Very conveniently located in the town near the First gondola. We had a front facing room, and the outlook into the town was charming. We quite often sat on the balcony and...

With the best views in Switzerland, this is the ideal place to stay while hiking in the Berner Oberland area. You can literally walk out the door to the most wonderful hikes in all the world. The rooms are lovely and clean and very comfortable. Our room overlooked the garden and we enjoyed having our coffee on our little deck...

Couldn't get much nicer views. The Sunstar was comfortable except for the very flat pillow (only 1 per bed). Carpets could use replacing and a general revamp, but everything was clean. Rooms and especially the bathrooms were spacious. The free minibar was a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The indoor pool offered a great view of the mountains....

In a good location, near the First lift and less than 10minute walk to the station. A modern and very welcoming reception and lounge area. Good view of the Eiger from some of the bedrooms. Buffet breakfast and good choice and also the set dinner menu. The bedroom was a good size and all the usual facilities but, included free...

A lovely hotel, which is ideally located in Grindelwald. I would choose it simply for location (a minute away from first cable car) and for the stunning views from the rooms, lobby and dining room. Some nice outside space too. Breakfast is rich and staff are friendly. We found the five course dinner a bit dated, not the best food...

This is a larger hotel than the Sunstar in Wengen and although the service could not be faulted in its professionalism it was inevitably slightly less friendly. However the food was of an excellent quality - our half board dinners were five courses (starter, soup, salad, main, sweet) with several options for soup and main. The free mini-bar (soft drinks...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This holiday and spa hotel is in an outstandingly panoramic location, quiet and central but with uninterrupted views of the famous North Face of the Eiger, Wetterhorn and First. Inside, the hotel is decorated with lots of warm wood, and the spacious lobby has an open fire, creating a cosy atmosphere. The large, comfortable bedrooms with their light wooden furniture are perfect places to relax in. Those in certain categories have a balcony. The half-board "Ambiance" restaurant has picture-perfect views of the mountains, tempting you to linger and eat to your heart's content. Gourmet diners are also superbly catered for in the à-la-carte "Adlerstube" restaurant. In the spa centre, you'll find all kinds of ways to unwind: try the large swimming pool, the Finnish sauna, the Roman baths with four climate zones, the hydro-massage showers, the solarium or the rest room. The hotel also offers an attractive range of sports, from a fitness centre to aquagymnastics and aerobics. If you take your holidays in the glacier village of Grindelwald, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy all the many and varied activities that are available in the Jungfrau region. ... more   less
