Most "GUI"s are more then just GUIs for Xen - they are more or less heavy 
complex cloud management systems which require significant knowledge.

But "less technical staff" could be a very wide range... ;) On the other hand 
it depends from what this staff should (can) do with the GUI.

May be this two options are interesting for you:

- xen shell:
A very easy to use shell / cli based console which offers just two hand full 
commands to work with (still once configured or templated) Xen VMs.

it could easily adapted and/or extended with own tasks and commands if 

- OpenQRM:
Open QRM is web based but (very) heavy too, but it allows access with sub 
rights for users with lower rights and skills if the admin configures such an 
usage level.
