Very enjoyable stay here 1st to 8th February. The hotel is well situated for transport to ski areas and it is possible to ski back almost to the hotel. Meals were very tasty and plentiful with a buffet at breakfast ( great coffee ) and five course evening dinner with salad bar. The spa ( Wellness Center ) was excellent with two saunas. We used our credit vouchers to have Fondue in the hotel's a la carte restaurant one evening. A nice touch is complementary tea and cake served between 4-5p.m.
Our rooms were spacious with good bathrooms and kept very clean. The only criticism would be that the rooms were overly hot despite having all the radiators switched off. We controlled this by having the balcony window open all day and closing it at night.
Wengen is lovely with very good tourist services and a lovely wee Anglican church. We went to the evening service and really enjoyed it. Be aware that although the skiing is extensive there is a bit of travelling involved to access the slopes either by train or cable car. We skied over on the Murren slopes and went up to Schilthorn and the revolving 007 restaurant one day which was fun.
There are well marked paths for walkers if not into skiing.
All in all a great holiday with great accommodation. I would be happy to stay at the Silberhorn again any time.
