“Returned for a seventh summer”
Reviewed August 13, 2008

We have now stayed in hotel for seven summers and used Residence building for four recent ones. It has proved entirely adequate for my wife and myself for the price paid. The location is excellent - a couple of minutes from the cable car and three minutes from the Rail station. Connections to other trains and forms of transport are first class.
Management has always accommodated every request. All staff we have spoken too have coped well with English language. Restaurant staff are sometimes hesitant and not up to speed with what guests need but they are learning on the job and do respond well when asked to. It is not five star service but also not five star prices.
Breakfast is as extensive as guests need (not cooked apart from self-service boiled eggs). Restaurant in the evening works well when guests work out options. There is a set menu each night and always fondue and raclette available. Salad Bar (self serve) and soup and dessert are also standard. Some nights there is a Pizzeria available as an option if set meal is not suitable. Sunday outdoor barbecue is excellent - substantial and varied items cooked to personal request. There is room for improvement in the set menus where on some days the theme is not for all tastes but the other options available mean it is easy to find something adequate.
The bathrooms in main building are small but in Residence are adequate. For a budget price in an ideal location we are still happy to return.

We needed a night's accommodation after a day trip and this was convenient and in a beautiful village. A bit run down ad not luxurious however.

Rooms were basic but had everything required. Breakfast included. Good, basic Swiss breakfast.

Not my idea of luxury but did the job.

  • Liked — Clean and had an amazing view of the Alps.
  • Disliked — Old and some of room a bit cheap looking.

The Bernerhof is a simple small hotel in the main street in Wengen, with a traditional style chalet look. You get an ensuite room with a shower, and a cable TV. The rooms are very small and basic, but they do the job.

You don't get breakfast as standard, but they do serve a simple continental breakfast as an optional extra in the restaurant downstairs. The Bernerhof restaurant serves food all day, including fondue and other swiss specialties. It is completely unlike the hotel upstairs though, and you'll find the food very expensive.

There is only one misgiving about this hotel, because the restaurant is downstairs you'll get a lovely waft of fondue cheese as you walk through the reception area and up the stairs to your room. It does smell a bit like wet dog! But fortunately, this doesn't seem to affect the rooms.

If you want something cheap, the Bernerhof is basic and clean - it does the job if you just want to crash out after a days skiing on the Swiss alps.

The location of this hotel was wonderful. With rolling luggage, we easily walked to and from the train station in about five minutes, sidewalks the entire way. The room was a bit dated with an unbelievably small bathroom. I am a small person and felt very closed-in in the shower. This was a typical budget accommodation, but not for what I feel is a budget price (Wengen area is touristy and expensive, in general). The desk staff spoke very little English and were not helpful with restaurant or hiking advice. If we were to return to Wengen, we would look for another hotel, as this one was nothing special.

Good, cheap and comfortable.
Food was ok, rooms were basic but clean.
Good service and a good location down the main high street, good for skiers.
Warm atmosphere and all around a good stay.

A typical Swiss chalet, complete with balconies dripping with geraniums, set on Wengen's main street. The accomodation is cosy and comfortable, if a little basic. Standard accommodation includes shared toilets and showers. Guests who pay extra for the facilities option will find their toilet and shower in what looks like a wardrobe. Many of the rooms had balconies, although ours was only big enough for one person at a time to sit out on. The menu was very Swiss - local produce was used in every meal and local specialities were often to be found on the menu, not the bland, tourist-tailored fare often found in hotels. There was a vegetarian option every night, as well as the chance to sample raclette or fondue. The staff in the hotel were very helpful and friendly.
I would certainly return to this charming hotel.
