Booked because it was in Wengen, opposite station, near main lift and most importantly close to nursery slope for six year old's first ski trip. Nearly as important was the pool and spa for wife who is not an avid skier and for child if she didn't take to skiing. Location therefore was perfect for what we wanted and it proved to be a good choice.Out of boot room, short walk to lift or station or nursery slope. Perfect.
It is a three star. Don't expect super luxury. Good points. Pool is brilliant before or after a days skiing. Just avoid the "dragon" who occasionally patrols it. Location. Perfect. It has a games room for kids, a gym, spa and on good days you can ski in and out.
The not so good points. They say all the rooms are " south facing"! Depends which compass you use and how far you can lean. No tea and coffee making facilities in room and if you want to cool your wine and emmental stick it outside on the little balcony. Rooms are pretty drab and functional and you wonder if it has changed since the 1930's. hence in these power hungry days if you want to charge two I pads and two mobile phones (sorry essential for business which pays for this holiday) you will have to unplug a lamp and charge in shifts.
Then there is the food. You are allocated a table with a number and a waitress. Breakfast is fine. It is the usual buffet affair. If you want a fry up forget it, but it is good enough. However, I have never had such a bizarre collection of dishes for dinner. Don't get me wrong, there is enough and the service is fine and friendly but the combinations are weird. According to the rep, the Swiss have an unusual take on fine dining and this was it. Unusual is a word which is appropriate.
Hey, it was warm, welcoming and good enough. A good refurb and it could be rather good. (If they changed the chef).
