Gorgeous view from overlook. Comfortable outside seating, bar and lounge. Check out the "Honesty Store"!

Based on the amazing reviews of this place we were disappointed that the only available food for lunch was bread and a cheese plate. They were really good but I was hoping for a real meal. They were also out of the Black Monk beer...More

Nice spot right near the cable car. We came here after doing the North Face Trail from Murren (took alternative path so we could see Sprutz Waterfall and came down through Gimmelwald). We split a soup and two liters of beer. Highly recommend!

Description
You already list this as a hotel. I didn't stay at the hotel so can't rate it but want to provide this information: I wandered into Gimmelwald down the path from Murren and met the owner, David, hiking up the path. He is an attractive Brit and very knowledgeable regarding hiking and other activities in the area. I had a coffee on his terrace and later a couple of pints of beer while chatting with him and others. The view from the terrace is fantastic across the deep Lauterbrunnen valley to the mountains on the other side. I didn't get to try his food as the chef hadn't arrived yet, and I didn't see his rooms in the pension part, but this place is worth a try at least to sit on the terrace for a coffee/beer and enjoy the view. Rick Steves also lists it in his book on Switzerland.
