We spent a week at the Caprice on a family holiday in August.
Its in a fabulous location for exploring Wengen, the town and surroundings. The rooms were large and comfortable with amazing views of the Jungfrau and Silberhorn. We had 4 days of hot weather and clear views to really make the most of it all too. The view from the terrace is worth a lot. Having the public pool and tennis courts 5 minutes away was very convenient, otherwise apart from the pool table there weren't many facilities for children, or for a Small Luxury Hotel either.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and very accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for Carlos and Aragon ran things very efficiently and was always helpful.
Having said that there are a couple of things we would change. The wi-fi is only available in the bar and we found the meals rather hit or miss. Some courses were excellent, some proved a complete surprise even after reading the menu. All was edible but sometimes ecletic. Breakfasts were very good, but the salad course in the evening could be more varied over the week.
No aircon was a drawback when it was very hot (34C upwards), but Aragon found us a fan.
That said we would very happily return to the Caprice and Wengen.
