Is this expensive or good value ?

Hi guys

Would you consider CHF3'290.00 including transfers,half board for two people for 10 days expensive during August in Wengen ? When I convert from Swiss francs to British Pounds it seems it is....It is a 4 star hotel if that helps...I am trying to convince my husband that it would be good value.....I have heard that Switzerland is expensive but am interested in your views...

That works out at around £100 per person per night for the hotel. You could pay that for a 4 star in Bournemouth and I know where I would rather stay!

Hi Ambersmum675,

You should also keep in mind that an evening meal will likely cost around 30-50 chf per person -- so that brings the lodging down to around 115 chf per person --

Have fun as you plan!

Yes , the evening meal element is CHF29 each 5 course, it does take out the worry of what to eat and where.. so I think that is good value...

Have a look on a website such as Inghams Lakes and Mountains as they may have the same hotel and you could compare their price with what you have been offered. They will include the air fare as well.

I think it's either ok/good value or great value depending on the quality of the hotel and food. 4* means many different standards. But it's not expensive for Switzerland (or elsewhere as Swissaholic points out).

Marmott12, thank you for that idea. I did exactly that, and I am happy that I did the comparison. I did the sums and it worked out cheaper. I am happy now to go ahead and plan my holiday to Switzerland.I love the research lol ! Thanks :)
