As a family of four we stayed at the Sunstar in mid-August and had the most fantastic week. The hotel was excellent. Staff were helpful and friendly. Its location (only 2 mins from Wengen station) makes it an ideal location for exploring the area. Food both at breakfast and evening meal was of a high standard with plenty of choice. We stayed in a duplex room with the children (13+10) sleeping in the downstairs section on bunk beds whilst we occupied the upper floor. Our balcony had a great view of the Lauterbrunnen valley and the snow capped mountains. As well as exploring the beautiful area we also made use of the hotel pool which was larger than average for hotels, was spotlessly clean and always had a large supply of clean towels. The children also enjoyed visiting the hotel kitchen on an "chef's aperitif tour" and learning to fold napkins into all sorts of shapes with the head waiter. It's often the little extras that make a hotel great - the free minibar stocked with water, sprite, coke and beer each day, the beds turned down whilst we enjoyed dinner and a pillow chocolate to welcome you back to the room.
Breakfast consisted of cereals, fruit juices, yogurts, cheeses, meats, fresh fruit, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, baked beans, tomatoes, chocolate croissants, bread, tea/coffee/hot chocolate and ensured we always had a good feed to start the day.
Evening meal consisted of a salad/starter buffet with new items each day, a daily soup choice (or tomato/beef soup if you don't fancy the daily soup), 4 choices of main course and either the daily dessert or ice cream/fruit salad or cheese. We found the food delicious.
Throughout our stay in Wengen we made great use of the "Bernese Oberland" rail pass along with junior cards for the children. Monika in the tourist information office was very helpful. We visited Männlichen (the cable car being a stones throw from the hotel), Jungfraujoch, Schilthorn as well as walks around the village and from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg and the local Folklore evening hosted by one of the members of "Trio Lauberhorn" who played one evening in the hotel bar.
We look forward to returning.
