Hotel Bernerhof & Residence
Ranked #18 of 20 Hotels in Wengen
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Very basic 2* Hotel, breakfast pretty bland and would go to one of the nice bakeries in town.

Overall this hotel is just very typical of the swiss hotel market. Basic, lacks modernisation and is overpriced. Not surprised a lot of hotels are struggling during the recession here you really dont get what you pay for.

A little expensive, but everything in Wengen is. Good location, and beautiful views from our second story room. The room was just okay. The breakfast wasn't great. You have to turn in your room key to get the outside key everytime you leave in the evening. Even with some of these negatives, I wouldn't mind staying here again if I ever visited Wengen. I'd probably give this place 3 1/2 out of 5. It's on the cheaper side but still pricey, as is everything in Switzerland. I LOVED spending time on the balcony though.

An excellent holiday in a "definate" 2 star hotel---All previous comments from others are accurate---If you are more than 6 feet tall the shower would be rather constricted but fine for smaller persons--Bedrooms very cleanly kept and views to die for more than make up for the occasional curtness of the staff .There is a kettle provided in the room but you have to get your own tea /coffee etc from local Co-op ! Food is varied and tasty though service is variable at busy times..Nicely furnished small lounge area with bar and tv etc though one evening slightly spoiled by the staff vacuuming whilst guests still relaxing !
The receptionist was efficient sorting out baggage on departure as we used the fly rail service but very rarely saw reception staff on duty during the rest of the week.
I would recommend this hotel if you wanted a basic room and were not too fussed on its interior etc and were on holiday for the simply wonderful country that is Switzerland

Room Tip: First floor with a balcony as there is no lift

Our stay in July was in the self catering Residence located next to the hotel section of the Bernerhof. I had booked (family of four) the two room studio which was basically interconnecting rooms, one with kitchen facilities and one without.
Both rooms were spacious, providing two bathrooms with showers, two large flat tv's, plenty of wardrobe space, small table and chairs and a small kitchen area with fridge, microwave and two hot plates. The accomodation is basic and the decor is dated however the rooms were clean and comfortable. Our room opened up to a small patio area with table, chairs and a lounger offering amazing views overlooking the church and valley.
I knew when I booked this holiday that I wasn't going to get luxury accomodation, however in my opinion because of the location, the views from the room, excellent value for money to stay in such an expensive part of the world and the size of the rooms together made it ideal for us. There is also a pizza restaurant attached to the residence which is open over the weekend.
I loved everything about Wengen, the views all around are spectacular and it is truly an idyllic place to stay with plenty of things to do. I can see why so many people return year after year.

The location cannot be beat. Its right in front of park, mountains, gandola etc. Beautiful views form balcony of room.

Some things that one may not like:
- Bathrooms are tiny (build in closet in our room) - not kidding...
- Room size was ok, not to big, but not crumpy.
- No elevators
- Creeky wood sound when walking on upper floors (old house, did I say)
- Wifi not free

Good points:
- Clean
- Very nice location (small car free vilage)
- Very easy access to Jungfraujoch
- Good breakfast

Some tips. We booked through priceline. Later found out, rates on hotels own site are better (http://behof.ch/home/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16&Itemid=40). So call in to book.

Room Tip: Call Hotel directly to book room instead of priceline/booking.com or anything else. http://behof.ch...

Kind of a dumpy place, but the food was to die for... And inexpensive for the area!

My husband and I stayed at the Bernerhof with our two friends for 10 days from 25th June.
This was our second visit (first one about 40 yrs ago) and our friends first trip to Switzerland.
The Bernerhof looks wonderful and traditional from outside and inside.
The staff were lovely and the food on the whole was quite tasty. I was really looking forward to the huge bowl of Swiss muesli which you helped yourself to at breakfast but unfortunately it was no longer on the menu. The soups were really nice but the portions a little sparse as was most of the deserts. However by the time you had eaten all 4 courses you were quite full.
The bedrooms were not very big but spotless and pleasant with everything you needed including a really small bathroom. The beds were really comfortable and the pillows wonderful. We had a small balcony with lovely views and the train station was 5 minutes down the road along with the local Coop shop. Very hand for sandwiches(we were half board) and wonderful huge tarts.
We were on the 3rd floor and along with other guests found the climb up the stairs harder work then some of the walks. A lift would have been wonderful after coming home happy but weary.
All in all good value for a 2 star hotel.
