          The hotel has been in the family for 4 generations.The proprietors are very pleasant and helpful. Our room (#23) was spacious and charming. The view of the Wetterhorn from our balcony was pretty amazing too. We only ate breakfasts in the restaurant, but those were very good. The location of the hotel (on the upper end of Grindelwald) was great. It was quiet for sleeping, yet the shops & restaurants in town were readily accessible by walking (about a 4 minute walk). The hotel had plenty of parking too. All in all, a lovely place with really sweet hosts. We will go back!

          Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Wonderful mountain view from the balcony.

          Very old facilities. It was quite difficult to regulate hot water, when I turn water on for shower. Too thin curtains.

          The views from the hotel room and also the dining room/ retaurant were amazing. The Hotel staff were so helpful and welcoming, they made the Gletschergarten feel like a true home away from home. Free WiFi was very much appreciated and the 4 course dinner was delicious and very good value.

          This was an outstanding choice for lodging in Grindelwald. The hotel staff/owners were exceedingly gracious and helpful. Our room was immaculate and had a picture-postcard view of the Eiger mountain. Highly recommended.

          The owners were really knowledgeable, warm and friendly. My mom and I felt very well treated. When it came to planning our day trips out of Grindelwald to either Jungfraujoch or Luzern, they did not just sell us tickets for the sake of selling but rather advised that we first look at the weather in Jungfraujoch in the morning and then decide. As it was my mom's 60th birthday, we got a complimentary upgrade to a room facing the mountains. That was just excellent. I will definittely head back to stay there.

          The only 2 items that we felt was lacking were: 1. The waitress took more than 15 mins to bring us our breakfast eggs each morning. A pity because we wanted it to go with bread and by the time it came we were almost full. 2. There were not much toiletries in the room. Just tissue paper, all purpose body wash and hand soap. It's ok for visitors who prefer to bring their own.

          The family and staff are great. Very attuned to customer service.

          The road the hotel is on got a little busy at times.

          The scenery is outstanding, regarding this hotel it's all about 'location, location, location'.

          A bit twee and the 'traditional Swiss decor' felt a bit dated to be honest.

          This was the perfect hotel for our visit to the Jungfrau region. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious (with a little sitting area) and sunny, and had a large balcony with a magnificient view of the mountains. Being slightly away from the center of Grindelwald, it was quiet and peaceful. The food (breakfast and dinner) was delicious. Best of all was the wonderful, friendly family who owns and runs the hotel. They were incredibly helpful (recommended the best hiking trails, for example) and made us feel truly at home.

          I can't say enough good things about Hotel Gletschergarten. The hosts were wonderful, giving us excellent advice about hiking trails and other activities in the area. They really went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. I highly recommend staying at this hotel if you're in the area.

          Our stay could not have been more perfect. The owners were incredibly helpful and gracious---the rooms lovely and spacious, included an outdoor porch. The breakfast was plentiful and good quality.
