The Hotel Belvedere in Grindelwald has been family run for 111 years, giving them plenty of time to perfect their service levels. Not only is the service super friendly but the hotel was won awards for being ecologically responsible with the hotel's energy being supplied entirely by solar panels and numerous other sustainable practices from heat pumps to the air conditioning.
Every room has a balcony with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. And the spa area is particularly enticing with a heated pool, indoor hot tub, external salt water hot tub, Finnish sauna, glacial steam bath and a heat mine gallery as well as massage and beauty treatments being available. When it comes to dinner the restaurant has special nights all week, from open kitchens to meet the head chef and his team to steak tartare night where the dish is prepared at your table or the fish and meat fondue to try every Monday.
The Hotel Belvedere is located around the midway point between the two gondolas that come out of the town. However, the hotel's closest ski lift is actually the train which takes you directly to the heart of the main ski area. The station is 250m down the road, about a 4 minute walk. The local buses stop right outside the hotel should you wish to use them but the hotel also puts on its own service in the mornings to drop you at the lifts.
