This is how you do service. Well, it is by my standards. It is rare that the the hurly burly of the family's trip home fails to deaden a sense of regret at leaving but I didn't want to leave the Alpenrose.
My wife's family have been coming here for years and I went with them 20 years ago - I did not remember it as being as lovely and welcoming as this. The Von Allmen family fronts a first class team of people who all seem pleased to see you.
The journey out was twice delayed and we arrived at midnight. We'd phoned ahead and without batting an eyelid they picked us up from the station and sat us down in front of a fabulous cold spread. This set the tone for our stay.
The Alpenrose is not cheap but better than that, provides superb value. The rooms are a bit small but are clean and comfortable. The food is excellent and very plentiful - don't hit the post-skiing cakes too hard as you'll need the room.
We'll be back there as soon as we can.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our alpine hotel with its long family tradition ! The Hotel Alpenrose is the oldest hotel in Wengen and has been owned and run by the same family for well over a hundred years. The 40 rooms and the lounges have been recently renovated in alpine chalet style using lots of wood and the hotel’s own antique furniture. A log fire in our lounge adds to the welcoming atmosphere after a day in the mountains. In our dining room a hearty breakfast is served from our buffet and a fine half board set menu is served in the evenings. The Hotel Alpenrose is situated about 10 walking minutes below the train station and the village centre in a quiet and pleasant location with stunning views into the beautiful valley of Lauterbrunnen and the surrounding snowcapped mountains. ... more less
