Good

  • 3 of 5

The place is good, very clean, all the available household items but the bed is uncomfortable and there are insects when opening the windows

Owner's Response: I'm happy you found our place clean and well equipped. I'm sorry you found your bed uncomfortable. You are the first to complain about this. We try to cater to all our guests and have chosen semi hard mattresses which suit most people. Had you said something, we could have tried to do something about it. No houses in Switzerland have insect screens but at the altitude of Grindelwald, there are virtually no insects that bite. You are in the Alps and surrounded by farms, forests and nature. Insects are part of that and may pay you a small visit but they mean no harm.

Convenient and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

he property is located just off the main road within view of the main cable car which is accessed across the railway line and down a steep bank to the back of the property. The kitchen is the best equipped we have ever stayed in! The living access is compact but there are 8 seats for both eating and resting and many candles and decorations to make it feel homely. Apple TV was great to have. Beds are comfy and bathroom facilities, whilst lacking heated rails to dry towels and the odd plug, are pleasant. Manager was helpful with the minor issues we had

Great accomodation in nice area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with 2 families which fits well. Appartment is very well equiped, all you need is there, including linnen, cleaning supplies for dishes, tv, washingmachine , fireplace, etc. Diarmuid gaves us a warm welcome and excellent info on the area, which we really liked. Nice long slopes, beautiful views. The apartment is very close to the Mannlichen cable bahn but the crossing over the railway with young children when there is a lot of snow is not ideal so we ended up driving down. But further there is nothing negative to mention. We love to come back here in the future.

Everything we hoped for !

  • 5 of 5

Grindelwald delivered on all our expectations for our 2015/16 Christmas/New Year Holiday!

The apartment was very comfortable and included all the necessary conveniences including a very well equipped kitchen. Some of us skied, some made day trips to other cities by car and some of us just hung out and enjoyed the spectacular view. The location was ideal for us ,,,, we had a 15/20 minute walk to the center of Grindelwald which was the perfect antidote to all the beer, bratwurst and rosti consumed. Grindelwald's Co-op supermarket was a pleasant surprise ... well stocked and great variety. We were also impressed by the excellent restaurants found in town. Not a big nightlife town but we were generally in bed early anyway.

All in all, we would recommend Grindelwald highly and we would return to this apartment.

Ideal Location and a great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a great location. This has been probably the best apartment we have stayed in on holidays. Firstly, it has a great location. It's only a few minutes walk to both Mannlichen cable-car or to the station in Grund, even in ski-boots. The views from the apartment are simply amazing. It's only a 20 minute walk to the centre of Grindelwald and there is also a regular bus service.

Secondly, the apartment itself is really spacious (we were a group of 8) and fitted out superbly. Everything is provided, from Apple TV, Dvd's, books, right through to all the small kitchen utensils and cleaning materials and even condiments. All you need is right there. The living area and bedrooms are really comfortable and spacious.

Diarmuid was great. From the time of the first contact to our departure he was always really helpful and informative and provided a really nice welcome when we arrived.

We would highly recommend the apartment and will certainly be back.

Grindelwald is set in the alpine heartland of Switzerland known as the Bernese Oberland. Dominated by the world famous Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains it boasts the country's highest density of dramatic scenery. The village is the stating point for hundreds of walking trails, mountain biking trails, paragliding, rafting and much more in the summer months and for its skiing and snowboarding during the winter months when it becomes a lively winter ski resort. Set beneath the towering peak of the Eiger you couldn't be in a more beautiful setting. Its nicknamed 'glacier village' for its proximity to two large seas of ice which are well worth a hike to during the summer months. The main street is packed with little restaurants, cafes and bars , all with terraces for you to take in the views. There is train station in town making it easily accessible from any part of Switzerland.
