We have stayed at the Wengener Hof many times and appreciate the Hotel's traditional values, stunning location, attentive staff and ample food and have always found it a first class base for skiing the Jungfrau region.
We were hoping to arrive this year in time for Lunch and maybe some time on the slopes in the afternoon, but were stuck at the airport for 10 hours waiting for fog to clear during which time I let the Wengener Hof know we were not now going to arrive until late night.
The late arrival did not faze the hotel; we were collected with our bags from the local station and everything was whisked up to our rooms where the staff had very thoughtfully left platters of cold cuts, salad and cheese ready for our arrival.
We ended up eating a very well appreciated meal on our south facing balcony with the lights of the Lauterbrunnen valley 500 meters below us and the Jungfrau, Monck and Eiger above us and were well rested for some great skiing the next morning.
Now that is a great hotel!
