Hi there, our favourite place to stay is Thun, the other end of the lake from Interlaken. It is easy to go to Jungfrau from there if weather is suitable (that would be a very expensive trip if mountain is covered in cloud!) but also offers easy access to other areas if weather dull - like city visits to Basel, Zurich Bern, Lucerne etc or south to Gstaad, Martigny, Zermatt, (though weather would also be factor. here) You can still easily visit Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnun, Wengen and Murren if you want to but have more options available. Read some of my posts about where we went this summer from base in Thun and you will see why we like it. It has its own attractions as a charming small city too with its castle and museums and attractive shops and places to eat.
I admit to being biased in its favour as we always stay there!
