“Old charming, friendly retreat”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

An excellent stay, in a comfortable clean environment with olde world charm. Wonderful choice of food hot from the buffet, great after a long days ski. Pleasant staff, and all in a magical location. Will definitely return.

The Hotel was great. Prefect for what we required. Near enough to the cable car/ train up to the slopes. Lovely room over looking the town was icing on the cake. And the staff were welcoming and very helpful. Its a hotel with lots of character, so not for everyone! Food at breakfast was as expected...continental. But was sufficient enough to keep you going until Lunch. Buffet evening meal was lovely, and we eat at the hotel most evenings. You can store ski gear in basement, but we found on both occasions on visiting Wengen, that its worth spending the money to store them at Central Sports.

We have just returned from a fantastic week's skiing in Wengen. We were allocated this hotel on arrival in the resort [Crystal Ski holiday] and we were very impressed by all aspects of the hotel. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The choices of food at both the breakfast and dinner buffet were pleasing. I see other reviewers have commented that there was no 'full english', as we were in Switzerland I wouldn't have expected or wanted this. We found that by leaving our skis and boots in a locker at the hire shop we could be in town in a few minutes and then onto the lift quickly. We had a large room with a super view of the mountains and it was always warm and quiet. We were pleased that there were 2 armchairs so that you could read in comfort after a day on the slopes. We would definitely stay in this hotel again if we were in Wengen.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the valley. The views are better from the higher floors{ we were on the 4th } The...

The hotel is a very much an old world vintage style hotel so don't expect a glass and mirrors modern decor. The rooms are warm and comfortable and have very alpine style. The lounge and bar area is very charming with a big log fire. The staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. The breakfast is typical continental with ham and cheese etc so don't look for the full English, there was scrambled egg though.The buffet evening meal is very Swiss style with pastas etc so don't expect hot and spicy. I am hoping to go back in summer to see what its like when not under tons of snow. Its a short walk into the town area and lifts but it is a bit of a slog with ski boots on.

Firstly the staff are lovely. It is "of a time" and reminded me of a big old school! The breakfasts are very bland and the dining room lacks any sort of atmosphere. I avoided the evening buffet!

Don"t be put off though, it is different but very much a "conveyer belt". I guess it is down to what you are used too. personally I"d pay a bit more and go somewhere a bit nicer.

Room Tip: Insist on one of the refurbished rooms. One of us stayed on the top floor and is was dated and drear...

we have stayed in wengen about 25 times in the last 35 years and at least 12 times at this hotel and are content to stay only here from now on. It is a charming old world style hotel, perfect for a winter holiday with superb service and good food (though not all meals would be to everyones taste) at a reasonable price. Staff are very helpfull and nothing is to much trouble for them.

Room Tip: the rooms are all good but if you fancy a tea or coffee in your room, take a kettle

We love Wengen and Belvedere. We stayed during the first week of February and had a lot of snow.
The people in the hotel were very friendly and helpfull. We had a beautiful view from our rooms.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back in the near future.
