          Only the location is best.

          Hotel staff not friendly. Poor service. Uncomfortable rooms/beds. Sauna facility only to have extra activity but not at all working., Upon request even. Unfriendly reception staff. Would not recommend this hotel at all.

          Welcoming staff and very pleasant ambience of the public rooms.

          Convenience of access to ski and boot room. Variabilty of food which was sometimes excellent but at other times disappointing.

          9.2

          Friendly staff! It was perfect for what I needed. I got everything I asked for and much more!

          I picked a single room, that had a single bed, with a fairly small shower. However, I picked those options to keep things cost effective.

          Worst hotel. We were hoping for quaint lovely hotel in the alps. Derby is noisy with the train station and loud guests. The ownwer said "what do you expect, you booked a hotel in the center of the village?". I said I lived in nyc and I knew loud. We couls not keep our windows open to get the fresh mountain air!!! They also had the audacity to charge another 50% on the room for a real bed for my daughter (10) even though we booked for 3 on the site! Do not stAy here!!!

        • Couple
          10.0

          Perfect location for skiing in the grindelwald region! Great hotel, great staff, great food! Will stay at the Derby the next time we ski the Grindelwald region! Perfect!

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Great services, friendly staff. The restaurant is lovely and it has one of the best foundue in town. Just few steps away from the banhof. I had a great time!

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We have been to the Derby before in 2006 so we did know what it was like and would stay there again if the need arrises

        • Couple
          9.2

          Everything! The people is really wonderful, the attention excellent! I stayed at the junior suite and it was very comfortable and a super size for two! The food at the restaurant is really good at an affordable prize! You have the train station infront of the hotel, if you decide to go skiing or to Interlaken! I loved Grindelwald!

        • Couple
          10.0

          We had a balcony with an amazing view. The breakfast provided was outstanding and quite extensive. The restaurant was impeccable. Also, the hotel staff went the extra mile in giving us chocolate bars on our pillows (large ones) and an amazing piece of cheese from the owner's dairy! This was the perfect base camp, if you will, for sightseeing and hiking all over the region.

          It would be nice if they offered free wifi.
