we stayed at this hotel in March 2013 and overall the experience was great.
The hotel is located right at the bottom of the piste, opposite the train station and ski hire and conveniently next door to a supermarket.
The staff were great and really helpful. They arranged our lift passes for us at no extra cost. The hotel is very clean and rooms are a good size although a little orange (!).
One thing I would definitely recommend is the buffet breakfast inclusive option. Wengen is extremely expensive and the buffet is good and diverse and can easily fill you up until dinner.
Now..the must know (!). While the hotel facilities were as stated, e.g. there was a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi's, what wasn't well advertised is that all the facilities except for the jacuzzi's were in the "nude zone!" - so not very family friendly or good for those who are not comfortable with this.
Also maybe this is a bit picky but the pillows were the thinnest I have ever seen - not a big deal though so don't let this put you off.
Overall though a great hotel and a great resort.
