Again we stayed here as part of a group, breathtaking views, the rooms from first view are tiny so be aware, this got worse after the first night. We both got bed bugs......and it wasn't just us in our group that got them, our tour guide didn't seem very phased he was just more interested in getting smashed with the barman, also any place where you have to pay to have a shower is ridiculous! I mean I know they don't want people to go and have 30 min showers every time but I'm sure they could put an automatic timer on the showers to they cut out after a certain time. Especially when you pay for a shower and it is stone cold. Not the best.
We went into the bar and my fiancé got a beer, 5 swiss francs we thought not bad, however we went to the supermarket in the village the next day and the exact same beer in a bottle slightly bigger than he got the night before was 1 swiss franc 45.......he ended up getting 4 of them and putting them in the snow when we got back to the site.
I will warn you that if you go as part of a group the drinkers take up all of the bar area, its not the biggest bar in the world but if you don't want to drink or just want to relax and have a couple then there is no where else to go and chill out on the site. Also there are no locks on the doors to the cabins, not such a big deal if you are travelling as part of a group but would be worrying if travelling as a couple or single. Be aware though if you leave the door to your cabin open for more than a minute it cuts out the heating to all the cabins on site, so if you don't want to be cold at night, id keep that door closed.
Aside from getting bed bugs and things being grossly overpriced at the accommodation, the views are beautiful and we had lots of fun in the village wondering around and looking at all the houses, and having snowball fights.
I would go to the Swiss Alps again, perhaps not back to Lauterbrunnen as its a little too sleepy for me.
