Excellent experience with this hotel for our three nights stays in August 2006. Absolutely no complaint whatsoever. We had a room facing the mountain with a large balcony. The view is fantastic from the balcony.

we have enjoyed a very special holiday in a delightful venue, the most wonderful food and hospitality.Thank you to the Aubert family for their special welcome.
The highlight was our evening meal which we cannot praise enough. Well done to the staff, and thank you for a delightful stay.

I have never written a review at all; I have such little time. However, Hotel Caprice was worth writing about. Every room has a view, so don't worry about asking for a view. There could not be a more beautiful view in the world and no hotel in Wengen can top the view you will get here.
The food was fabulous. I enjoyed having a drink out on the patio outside off of the bar.
Dinner was wonderful. It was candlelit and elegant.
The rooms are fantastic. Flower pots on your balcony.
I can not wait to go back.
Forget renting a car in Switzerland, by the way, and enjoy the fanstastic train travel.

Not often do we take to time to write about our stays whether good or bad. However we remember watching a Tom Peters tape on Customer Service and espicially about the Kentucky Redbirds and the owner Ray Smith. In particular his fetish and bug for cleanliness. Now having stayed in many hotels in the USA and UK we have yet to come across cleanliness such as Hotel Caprice. This is what struck us most and to that extent made us take notice of the hotel even more. The rooms were spacious, delightfully clean and balcony's with a view to die for. The only thing missing was the snow but the bike and walking trails as well as the waterfalls were simply outstanding and breathtaking to see. We can only imagine the view when the snow falls. The food was marvellous and coursteous and friendly hosts you could not find. Normally you are greeted with a grunt and thats the last you see. The owners, Monica & Christian are hands on, friendly and take time to answer your questions. A delightful, quaint and a must see(stay). As Arnold says " We'll be BACK"

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights at the end of July as part of a package booked with Inghams. See reviews elsewhere about this over rated company! We are regular travellers and we like to pay for comfort so we stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and know what to expect. This hotel is not what most people would expect of a 4 star hotel. The best description is 'fur coat and no nickers.'

The hotel and the room we had were generally clean and well kept. It is very convenient for the station and has some superb views.

The breakfast is poor. Eggs, bacon, sausage etc. are all extras. There are no menus on the tables so you will no easily discover this!

The set evening meal is good but the menu is boring and the manager is a pain. If you go for a-la-carte it is very expensive. During our visit the staff were all hotel management trainees - good - but OTT with their attention to detail.

If you go out at night don't expect to find an open door if you come home late - but your room key will open the door. Be sure to lock up afterwards!

On our final night I paid the bill ready for an early departure the next morning and asked about getting breakfast prior to catching our 06:53 train on the 4 hour journey back to Zurich. The manager could not oblige - not even to the extent of leaving some coffee and a roll. There is no staff available until 07:20, he told me.

The bill is a work of art so far as limited detail is concerned. All those little extras will appear as voucher items - no detail - just many CHF!!

No - definitely not a 4 star hotel. A reasonable, but expensive, 3 star hotel - perhaps!
