I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights after changing here from another hotel in Wengen. and I wish I had stayed here for all 5 nights that I was in Wengen.

The staff was great. the service was wonderful. The food for dinner was absolutely fantastic. It was a 5 course meal and was so much better than any other meal I had in Switzerland! I loved this place. they also have a spa outside you can relax it.

A return visit for us and first time for our friends. We had adjoining rooms on 5th floor - each facing a different view . We really appreciated the mini fridge for our water bottles / fresh milk from nearby Coop for early morning tea. NB- don't buy mineral water, the tap water is excellent to drink. Between the excellent breakfast - esp. the Bircher muesli - and afternoon tea and cake we hardly needed lunch. Our friends (not half-board fans) were really pleased with the quality and variety of food on offer, and we enjoyed the recommended Swiss wines each day. Staff in the restaurant and reception were extremely attentive and friendly and our table was specially decorated with rose petals for our wedding anniversary, when we were served complimentary Prosecco.
Being so close to the station means you can just step out and catch the train; there is no train noise at all but a night of live music on the sports ground behind the hotel went on a little late (any other night than our arrival day and we would have joined in). A front facing room would be quieter. Did not visit the spa at all so can't comment.
I will definitely stay here again if lucky enough to go back to Wengen.

Awful hotel. We were given room 101 very dated and no air conditioning which was needed as it was hot when we visited. Asked for a different room but nothing was available. The food was okay but nothing special. We only stayed 3 nights which was enough. The hotel was not worth the money and other hotels near by which ate also rated 4 stars seem much better. Yes location is great but wengen is a small place so nothing is too far away. Please think carefully before wasting money on this hotel very disappointing. I would have been interested to see other room types as some reviews seem happy with the decor.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the first floor.

We have been to the Silberhorn 4 times now and always choose it when we go to Wengen. The food is excellent (for vegetarians also) and the staff are always willing to go the extra mile. My mum had a cake and wine especially made for her birthday.
The staff are always friendly and polite and made a special effort to keep my 2 year old daughter entertained.

Room Tip: South side rooms have a better view.

My husband and I stayed with our two children aged 12 and 13. The hotel room was very spacious with a separate room for us and the children sharing the lounge area, which was great. The staff at the hotel are very warm, welcoming, efficient and friendly. Breakfast and dinner were fantastic and the staff in the restaurant were great about making the children feel welcome. The packed lunch was also great - the hotel also provide afternoon tea and cake - although we were too busy exploring to ever get back early enough for that. The spa area was great and the outdoor jacuzzi was amazing in the rain. The hotel is just opposite the station but there is no noise from the trains - the whole area is quiet at night which was fantastic.

2013-our 3rd visit to the Silberhorn Hotel in Wengen and THE BEST. ALL the staff were welcoming, very friendly and most helpful making our stay there very enjoyable. There was a good buffet breakfast and a choice at the evening meal. The meals were very well presented, a great salad buffet and with attentive waiters. When coming back from a busy day out it great the hotel is situated a few steps from the station. What a fabulous view we had from our room!Thank you TO ALL the staff at the Silberhorn Hotel for making our holiday so enjoyable. We have recommended it to our friends.

Room Tip: South facing, high floor

After little research around we decided to stay in Wengen than Interlaken to have alpine feel. Hotel Silberhorn was really perfect choice considering its location right behind Wengen railway station - just 20 step walk. It has wellness center with indoor & outdoor whirlpool and other spa facilities complimentary for in house guest. Morning breakfast was good with nice service. Hotel reception helped us to know whether and guided for our jungfrau trip. Rooms are spacious and great view of jungfraujoch from small balcony (enjoyed with cafe). More over staff was really friendly, helpful and with nice service during our stay.

Room Tip: Prefer top (4/5) floor room with jungfraujoch mountain view.
