After a change of ownership we were glad to find that all the excellent qualities of the Schonegg remained. Sensitively thought out modernisation means new decor, wonderful mattresses, on trend lighting, wi-fi and even a good range of TV channels (if wanted). The bedrooms and balconies have spectacular views of the Jungfrau, in the early morning and evening light the mountain peaks are tinted pink and gold, a sight to lift the heart in thankful appreciation of their beauty.
We had returned to the Schonegg with some concerns about how it would be now but our doubts were entirely unfounded. The resident manager, Philippe, has extensive experience in hotel management and a keen eye for providing quiet, professional yet friendly service. He leads a team of staff who work hard to make their guests' stay the best holiday experience.
Chef Hubert and his team create delicious meals using carefully chosen produce. For example have you ever had homemade beetroot risotto? We hadn't but it was tasty and appetisingly presented and very more-ish.The in- house fresh fruit sorbets were another highlight, indeed every meal was a fine dining experience. ( As a vegetarian the main courses were not appropriate for me but each night a tasty alternative was provided.)
For our stay the weather was rather cold, indeed we walked the Panorama path from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg in falling snow at te end of June; sections of the path still covered in the white stuff too. We saw some different mountain flowers this time, the early ones including crocus and bright anemones.
We bought and made good use of our Jungfrau railway passes and enjoyed trains, cable cars, buses and lake steamers for a variety of journeys. All to be thoroughly recommended!
If you are looking for a good base in the Bernese Oberland you will not find better than to stay at the Schonegg and will be glad that you made such a good decision.
