No better place to base yourself for a holiday in Grindlewald. Ours was a hiking holiday and the hotel is on the rail platform. Very convenient to get to your hiking areas. Our room was 225 overlooking the platform and the trains that came in on a regular basis from approx 0500 to about 2200. Absolutely no problem for us...

The hotel is well located right by the station and close to the centre. We had a room on the top floor facing the Eiger, with a balcony, which is worth having. The staff were keen to be friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Tea/coffee making facilties available on request. Quiet room with double glazing.

The derby hotel is an excellent hotel in a superb location right on the platform of the Grindelwald train station. As many of the walks in the area commence with a train trip the location could not be better. There are many restaurants and shops very close to the hotel. There is some noise from the station, but as we...

One side of the hotel faces the trains (which do not generate much noise) whilst the other side faces gorgeous mountain scenery. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is right by the small town center with shops and a supermarket. The breakfast was good. We had a wonderful stay!

Cute Swiss hotel just a short walk from the train station and all around Grindelwald as well. Room was very nice, super comfortable, clean with plenty of space for the two of us. We had a balcony room with an awesome view of the Eiger and Jungfrau mountains. There are some great gourmet shops in town; so bought some snacks...

This hotel is literally at the train station (you have to drive along the platform to park your car!), which we found delightful. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony with a glass of wine, watching the various trains and travelers come and go (the trains are all electric and so virtually silent). It's also at one end of the main...

The hotel was very convenient being adjacent to the railway station. This allowed us to make the most of our Regional Pass which I also recommend. The staff were very friendly and the hotel clean. However food was disappointing. We found it unimaginative and made to what appeared to be a tight budget. Very little of what we were offered...

At the end of our holiday, my two sisters and I stayed in this hotel for 5 days and it was a perfect way to finish.

This hotel is not normally the style of hotel I would go for in an ideal world, preferring modern places. It completely changed my perspective on this. Hotel Derby is so homely and comfortable. The thing that stuck out most was how lovely every single member of staff were. Barbara checked us in after we had a camping disaster of...

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
