“A must-stay”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We got a great deal on this room and wish we were staying longer than just one night. The hotel is a little older, but the charm is definitely there. The staff is very friendly and informative. Breakfast was also included in our meal and was great- we had an assigned table and had so many options of foods to choose from. There is free wifi and a kettle in the room. They also leave some apples for you, for a nice touch. Wengen is a great area- if you're traveling to Switzerland this area is worth the trip.

Fanatstic location, excellent staff and comfortable rooms. I think, all in all, its the best place to stay in Wengen. Excellent breakfast. The kettle in the room was an added bonus and so was the afternoon tea with freshly baked cake.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and view of Jungfrau is definitely worth it.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, 5 course meal in evenings with three choices of main course. Large bedroom with 40" flat screen TV, free wi-fi and drink making facilities (important for us Brits). Wengen is a lovely place and is a perfect location for hiking, we travelled around the area a lot and therefore the Jungfraubahnen pass was very good value at 185 francs for 6 days, well worth it. Jungfraujoch was very impressive, we spent over three hours there and really enjoyed it.

This Hotel enjoys one of the most stunning locations in Wengen, in the centre of the village, directly opposite the unobtrusive railway station.Upon arrival we were immediately and without fuss directed to our south facing superior room. My wife and I both said WOW! as we opened the bedroom door to observe the view from the balcony, of the Lauterbrunnental and its waterfalls. The room was immaculate,if a little dated in decor and illumination, the bathroom was large, modern, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean.The quality and quantity of all food eaten was to a high standard throughout our stay. The staff, from the manager down, were courteous, helpful and genuinely happy to be of service. As in all of Switzerland, drinks prices were expensive, probably more so due to the fact that Wengen is a car free village causing most supplies to arrive after several train journeys.This Hotel is truly one of the best places in which to base for the Bernese Oberland area of Switzerland.This hotel was at all times during our stay, immaculately clean. We hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with balcony have superb views, south facing of the Lauterbrunnen valley

I chose this hotel for my fourth stay in Wengen mainly because of its convenient location right opposite the railway station and its proximity to the gondola. I was not disappointed. My south-facing double room with balcony on the fourth floor was comfortable, clean, well-appointed and came with a stunning view of the Jungfrau and the Lauterbrunnen valley. The service provided by the efficient and friendly staff was almost faultless. Personally I've never seen much point in a turn-down service, but if you're going to offer one then it should be on a nightly rather than a random basis. My half board arrangement included a very good breakfast buffet, afternoon tea served in the lounge and on most nights a five-course dinner (including salad buffet) with a choice of three main courses and the option of cheese instead of dessert. The food was for the most part well prepared and tasty. My only gripes concern the tiny portion size of the starters (more like an amuse bouche) and the cheese board which could have done with more variety. Yes, the hotel lacks period charm, the public areas with the exception of the cosy bar being bland and devoid of character but this would not put me off returning to this welcoming and well-run hotel.

Room Tip: South-facing rooms on higher floors have the best views.

Snatched a few days of work for some end of season skiing at the ever-beautiful Wengen. Spent a few delightful days at the Silberhorn, and very much enjoyed my stay. Some reviewers have referred to the old decor, but I rather liked this traditional Swiss hotel, which was charming. Whatever one's complaint the view from the room facing the Jungfrau renders one speechless, and waking up in the morning with a view like that makes you truly appreciate life.

The added bonus of the spa, with whirl baths and saunas after hours of skiing is a terrific bonus. Being close to the end of the piste home and station makes life very easy too. Thank you for a super few days.

Situated very close to the train station and to the Gondola this is a perfect location for skiers or walkers. The staff were helpful and friendly ( not in our experience often the case in Wengen).
The breakfast was good and the dining room is light and airy.
Our room and beds were comfortable but the décor was dated. The bathroom looked like it was tiled in the 1970s and hadn't been touched since. The décor of some of the public rooms looked newer, but was decidedly old fashioned in style.
If you stay on a half board basis there is a choice of 3 main courses for dinner. The fish and meat options were generally fine, but the vegetarian choices were mostly poor.
This is a perfectly adequate hotel, but I'm not sure it really deserves 4 stars.
