I can't praise the service and food in this hotel enough, there is so much attention to detail. Booked a south facing superior room and it was lovely and spacious, with a couch, table and large sunny balcony - I would want that room again if I get to go back!
Bathroom was quite spacious and modern, with a bath with shower over and twin sink - useful but can make it a bit of a squash to get to the bath past the loo. On request a kettle and tea tray, and non feather bedding was immediately provided - the hotel manager and staff are friendly and professional and can't do enough to help. This hotel really is run to an exceptional standard and the decor does add to the charm - why waste money making it look like any other hotel when they can spend it on the food ;-)
Stayed half board and can definitely recommend this - great breakfast and fantastic 5 course meal in the evenings with lots of choice. There are even a a couple of options to 'swap' one of your evening meals for another hotel/restaurant if you would like a change, which is a great idea, but I wasn't tempted!
It is located only a few minutes walk away from the main street, and is absolutely quiet at night even with the windows fully open. There is one long main street in Wengen, and there is convenient free ski storage at the sister hotel at the other end, next to the train station.
Ski area takes a bit of planning, Swiss lifts often seem to close quite early (especially in January), but the little mountain train carries on running. Flew to Berne by Darwin Airlines - great airline and short transfer compared to Geneva.
