“Charming family run hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Just back from a weeks skiing in Wengen. Conditions were great. Travelled with Inghams who are very organised. Perfect timings from airport to resort. Alison & Stefan very knowlegable. Hotel is very well located to train station and town centre. Walk up to hotel can be a little challenging if conditions are icy though! Hotel is of traditional style, which some may say is a little dated, Yes it is older in style and furnishings but it was very clean and tidy. Our room was a good size with a lovely view of the mountains. All you need at the end of a hard day skiing is somewhere that is clean, comfortable and tidy and this hotel ticks all the boxes. There is a gym but we didn't use it as too tired from skiing, but there were enough pieces of equipment to get you through. On the downside our bed was a little harder than what we are used to at home, but merely a minor gripe.

Food at the hotel is of good choice. Breakfast may not be to everyones taste, but there was plenty for us to choose from. Good selection of cereals, breads, jams, fruit, yoguhart and also hot items, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. There is a toaster but it takes "ages"!!! to do its job so if you want toast, plan ahead! Waiter service for coffee/tea also. As we were on half board we didn't eat again in the hotel until dinner time. The choice was either from the daily menu which was 4 courses and main course there was 2 choices either a meat dish or vegetarian option. If this didn't suit then you could choose from the al-a-carte and pay the difference if applicable.

There is a boot-room downstairs for you to store your skis etc at no extra cost.

All staff very friendly and helpful. As it is a family run hotel the owner is on hand to assist if you have any queries. He was always there to greet you with a friendly smile and sat with us for a few minutes to get the chat of our day.

Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Highly recommended hotel in an ideal setting for skiing and enjoying Wengen and the Swiss Alps. The hotel built in the 1890s is full of old world charm and elegance. Staff were warm and welcoming and provided excellent service. Our room overlooking the Jungfrau was large, warm and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were very sad to leave.

Good points included:
-warm and friendly service
-beautiful and cozy lobby with a crackling fire and digital baby grand piano
-delicious dinner menu served perfectly by the lovely staff.
-complimentary drinks on arrival
-complimentary nibbles before dinner and petit fours after dinner
-delicious breakfasts and dinners
-ski drying room
-proximity to gondola and train to access expansive ski area
-proximity to ski hire with overnight storage
-free fast internet in lobby

Remember on arrival at the railway station to phone hotel for access to a porter service.

My wife and I stayed here three times in 2005 and 2006. The skiing is out of this world. Can ski 8km from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald. Tobogganing world class. The valley is the most beautiful in Europe. Rooms are old but very comfortable. Where else in the world can one wake up and see Silberhorn? Wonderful food for half board, enormous buffet breakfast, top class dinners. Am perplexed by some of the other reviews here. Not modern but brilliant. My only gripe was that internet access was far too expensive.

This is a fine well founded large hotel with tradition and family history. Guido Meyer, his family and staff welcome, serve and guide their guests very well without being intrusive. Our room was large, well furnished although some modern travellers might wish for more mod-cons. Although useful, I am not sure they would enhance the Regina experience. The location, a few minutes from the village and Wengenalp railway station is a great advantage for expeditions. The food is brilliant.

Room Tip: Request a south facing room with balcony as that will have a fabulous view of the mountains

This large Swiss hotel offered a room with an unbelievable balcony view, a cozy living room lounge with a crackling fireplace, an interesting basement boutique, and the personal touch and service of Guido Meyer and his daughter. They offer helpful advice about where to hike, weather forecasts and train information. We really enjoyed our three days and nights in Wengen and at The Hotel Regina. Breakfast overlooking the Alps was included. If there wasn't so much to do and so much spectacular scenery, I could have curled up with a book and a bottle of wine in front of that fire.

Room Tip: Our corner room on the fourth floor (I think it was Room # 407) had two balconys and offered views o...

The hotel is nice, a friend recommended it. I have to admit though, the decor is old fashioned all around the hotel, specifically in the rooms. The food is amazing!!! They really deserve their Michelin star. It is a nice place for couples and families, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is great!! 10/10 *******WONDERFUL!!

Room Tip: As always, the more you pay the nicer the room.

We recently attended a friends wedding in Wengen held at the Hotel Regina. The hotel is owned and run by by Guido and his family. We were absolutely mermerised by their hospitality, warmth and attention to detail for the occassion and our stay there. Guido and his family are delightful, charming and welcoming! I travel regularly for business and pleasure, I have to say this is one of the few hotels, were we experienced a warmth like no other! The food in the resturant is excellent and views are truly magnificant! Surrounded by the beautiful scenery, which is a real life postcard coupled with their warmth - it was truly an exceptional experience! Many thanks Guido and family, we will be back!
