My husband and I spent one night at the hotel Regina. We chose the hotel because we wanted to stay in Wengen and because the price for the night was in our range (200chf).
The location of the hotel cannot be beat. It's a 2 minute walk up to the hotel and a porter meets you at the train station to drive your luggage up. This was top service! We were warmly greeted at the hotel and personally showed where our ski gear should be kept. We also received a good explanation of what was included at the hotel and we were given many brochures as well.
The room itself (#608) was a disappointment for being a four star hotel. It had old carpeting, a tv from the 90's, a small bathroom, and no lotion in the bathroom. I would classify this hotel as cute, old and charming but not luxurious. It had the basics in the room. The upsides to the room were that it had a great view of the mountains and the glacier from the balcony, the beds were comfortable, and it was clean.
Additionally I enjoyed the pianist that they hire to play in the evenings. There were hardly any guests when we stayed there so we were the only ones listening to him. We ordered dessert while sitting by a beautiful fire they made while listening to the pianist. This was really romantic and we felt that we were attended to really well!
The next morning we were brought breakfast in bed. Apparently the buffet wasn't happening that morning so they asked us to have it in our room. It was a 3 star breakfast. We ordered eggs, croissants, fruit salad, ovalmatine, and coffee. It came on a silver platter and was nicely presented. There was plenty enough or everything they brought so you felt you got enough to eat. Additionally was great quality (especially the fresh crusty croissants!) except for the fruit salad. It was clearly from a can, the kind with maraschino cherries. It looked awful and it's the reason I gave the breakfast 3 stars. The ovalmatine was also a bit cool by the time we received it.
Lastly we really enjoyed Mr.Meyer's dog, Caramel. He was so sweet and we took him out for a walk one morning. Be careful, he tries to walk the guests instead of the other way around.
All in all the Meyers have a charming, old, but clean hotel. Many parts are outdated and could use renovations. All in all I felt we paid a little too much for our stay since it was low season. But the service was truly personable and Mr Meyer has hired a very attentive staff!
