A family run hotel providing excellent facilities, friendly welcome and service, very comfortable well equipped rooms, and superb food. The views from the hotel are breathtaking, looking up at the Eiger and other major mountains. The owners and staff could not have done more to make our stay more relaxed and enjoyable, and they were willing to provide additional information...

I am not sure what more I can add to the other reviews. We had a perfect stay here. The hosts were very nice and helpful. The location, views, rooms, meals. If we ever go back to switzerland again, staying here again is a no-brainer. Could not have been happier. Kudos to Gerhart and his wife for making this such...

From the moment we entered this hotel we were greeted with warmth that should define the hospitality industry. Hotel Gletschergarten is a family run establishment that is entering its 5th generation of business. We were welcomed by a family member and offered a free upgrade to our reservation. The room overlooked the countryside and was large and beautiful . The...

My husband and I were on a three-night excursion to Grindelwald to "feel" the atmosphere where his ancestors lived. We were not disappointed and savored the stunning beauty of the surrounding mountains and meadows, definitely enhanced by this well-run hotel and its welcoming family staff. Just the right combination of professionalism and personal attention. Everything was satisfactory.

We stayed in summer 2014 (yes, again I'm behind on reviews!) and we had a wonderful stay. Consistent with previous reviews the hosts were wonderful and as we were doing the booking at pains to be helpful about explaining the room types on offer. Whilst warned we'd picked a 'smaller' room, we were happy to do so for the amazing...

We stayed here just one night while on a spur of the moment trip to Grindelwald from Geneva and wished we were staying longer.

The bedroom had a balcony...

We stayed here for several days in mid-March, yet another visit in a long series extending back decades. The Gletschergarten was always a favorite of my parents, and now there are four generations of my family that feel at home at this hotel. It helps that the hotel management also straddles multiple generations, each of which is always so welcoming...
