Alpenrose Hotel and Gardens
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Wilderswil
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2010

This is a « do you want the good news or the bad news » story. Firstly, the good news: the hotel is very conveniently situated – literally a few minutes from the Wilderswil train station – thus it is in a more convenient situation than the other hotels which are further up the hill (in Wilderswil Dorf – the village). Also it is situated directly in front of the Jungfrau (so one should be sure one has a room on that side of the hotel – the manageress kindly changed mine when I saw I had been given a room on the other side of the hotel). The hotel also has a large garden which is very well maintained, with chaises-longues. It has an excellent chef and the food is simple, but delicious, as he is preparing it for a relatively small number of guests. Although the 7-8 time for dinner might not be convenient for some people, it does mean it arrives on the table having just been freshly prepared. The hotel is around 113 years old, but, unfortunately not enough has been done to capitalise on this, with no discernible style at all in the furnishings, which is very confused and seems to cover all periods. Probably the only consistency is found in the newly modernised toilet/showers. The overall aspect of the interior is rather forlorn, and even rather depressing. A total re-look needs to be done of this hotel exploiting its large spaces and interesting history. As it is, a couple of nights is enough, which is a shame, as it could be made into a great hotel instead of one which has seen better times.

Only stayed one night and it was more than enough. Horribly overpriced for what it is - everything in the rooms is old,worn out and falling apart. Couldn't sleep all night as the beds squeak every time you move. Walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbours. The only good thing about the hotel is its lockation. Would not recommend it to anyone.

On arriving at the hotel you become aware that it is a little diferrent, a disserted reception for starters. After a brief search of the ground floor the owner appeared and booked us in. She offered a drink so we had a beer she then disappeared again so we were left to search for our room, which we found on the second floor (3rd floor in USA/Canada). On entering the room I was glad we had not packed a cat as there was no room to swing it. The room was small with a shower room (we knew that we were not getting a bath), we had a shared balcony over looking Wilderswil with its pretty chalets. The room was clean and in good condition , as it was only 2 star the only extra you got was a TV with cable BBC prime and CNN being the only English channels. The lounge areas were warm friendly and cosy you could not want for more, like some ones front parlour.
The view from the rear rooms (higher room rate) and garden were stunning looking up the valley to the Jungfau mountain. The breakfast was the normal continental affair, bread cheese,ham boiled egg and cereals. The evening meals were ok except maybe the fish on Fridays.
The hotel is situated on a quite road just 3 minuets walk from the railway station with connections to Jungfraujock and Interlaken and beyond. Bern is only 51 mins away from Interlaken.
The hotel was fine for the price we paid different but friendly and attentive service in the dinning room from a set menu. I would stay again
