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!

We chose the Regina based on a personal recommendation and we were not disappointed ! The hotel location was ideal for our choice of a walking holiday with luxuries included. We stayed on half board basis, the food was top quality well presented and varied throughout the week. We found all the staff to be friendly and welcoming but the host in particular made sure our stay was enjoyable and also shared his local knowledge to ensure we made the most of our walking trips. The hotel itself is old but has real character and must have one of, if not the best, dining room view in the Alps ! Our room was comfortable, clean and the service was very good. We would definitely recommend the Regina to others.

Room Tip: South and West facing rooms have the best views

We recently returned to Switerland , bringing our adult son. The Regina was the perfect choice. It is old fashioned, quiet and welcoming. We had adjoining rooms,which were of good size ,nicely decorated and more than sufficient for our needs. Our large rom had much more storage space than most, and sufficient plugs for our many electronics (cameras,cell phones,computers,erc) again,not always the case for older hotels. Our son's room was small but sufficient.
Breakfast was lovely,with a broad selection and eggs cooked to order.
Dinner was a drawn out and formal affair (if that is not to your taste, walk about two minutes and find a quick meal.) The view is god,with the quiet sounds of goat and cowbells if you listen. The small cog rail does run nearby,but it never bothered us and we often had the window open. The halls are dim when the light is out,but it is very easy to put on.
Our hosts were warm and helpful,giving us ideas just off the beaten path that's worked out well.
We recommend Regina to one and all.

We stayed there for 4 nights in June 2012. Location of the hotel is perfect. Close to the train station with a view of alps....Though the hotel looks a little old, rooms are good size considering European standards along with the bathroom with a nice view from the balcony. We had opted for half board and food was good though the service could have been better with smiles on their faces. Though the lady owner was warm and hospitable, I perceived the owner gentleman to be a bit racist to start with. There were a couple of Austrian girls as waiters who did what they had to do but were doing more as a job than enjoying what they were doing. I think they had a issue with transient staff continuously on the move and that meant their were training gaps. There was a Polish girl in the bar/shop area who was really sweet and helpful. If I go back to Wengen, I would definately look at other options available. This village town is beautiful with a community sense, nice parks and close to Jungfrau and Manlichen cable car. Perfect town to stay if you want to stay close to alps instead of staying in crowded Interlaken.

We spent a week in Hotel Regina and from the moment we stepped foot in the door, we knew we had been had. Throughout the hotel, all carpet is frayed & ripped with huge stains. Hallway light bulbs were burnt out (probably so you can't see how bad in shape this hotel is). FILTHY is the only way to describe!

Husband and wife owner's jab nasty remarks about each other to the guests. Also, all the "view" rooms are directly on the train tracks so it's very loud starting just after 6:30 am until 7 pm. If it's not a train, then a service vehicle.

Our room was even worse with the wall covering coming off too. The lighting was so bad in our room and even worse in the bathroom. Dust everywhere.... even the towels were thin, scratchy and completely frayed which we found shocking. So glad I grabbed my slippers from the last hotel as I never let my bare feet touch the floor. It was obvious our room had not been vacuumed for months. Don't expect any amenities except a (tacky) shower-gel and shampoo dispenser in the shower, a hairdryer and toilet paper. There is a make-up mirror, but it's too dark to use.

We were on half-board so we had dinner there every night and were happy with the food even though soup was never hot. There were never more than a total of 8 diners on any given night except one night, and then the staff couldn't handle it. It took and hour & 1/2 for our entree.

We stayed at 5 different hotels in Switzerland on our 3 week trip. Hotel Regina was the most expensive and the most inferior. IT NEEDS A COMPLETE GUTTING AND MAKE OVER. Where did they get those photos for their web site???

We have stayed at the Regina three times now during the summers, generally taking advantage of their 7 nights for 6 promotion and also taking half board. While this older hotel may seem a bit dowdy, it is really quite charming, with rooms big by European standards. Request a corner room and you get great cross ventilation in the summer. But what really distinguishes the hotel is the effort that the current generation Meyer family put into ensuring that the guests feel at home. They are great fun, with great sense of humor, while also providing top service. The food is also really excellent and worth paying for the half board. The view of the mountains from the dining room and the terrace cannot be beat. We will return again!
