                  nice view of Matterhorn from our room. staff friendly and helpful. location to everything in Zermatt was good. facility seemed clean, well kept and comfortable, price was ok considering how expensive Zermatt is.

                  would stay there again.. no complaints.

                  Return visit as enjoyed stay here last year. Ideal location, short walking distance to train stations, shops and restaurants. Lovely clean south facing en-suite room with balcony.... Matterhorn can be seen, if weather permits! Polite, helpful, courteous staff. Very good buffet breakfast, included in price, which was always well stocked by efficient waitress.Offered service of hotel taxi to station on check out, but we preferred to enjoy our final few moments walking through Zermatt. Would definately stay here again. Price reflects quality of room, location, view etc.

                  Restaurant closed for evening meals, as "out of season".

                  Location close to rail. Nice breakfast. Very helpful staff.

                  We booked a double room. We got two single beds made up as such, pushed together and made to look a double with a cover blanket. We complained and got something a bit closer to a double bed. This practice seems to be increasing. It's false advertising. We have complained formally and got an apology and an offer of a free meal some time. That's nice, but we would ask that you do your part to stamp out this dishonest advertising practice.

                  This hotel is newly. Very comfortable! Bath-room and Wash-room is separated. And person who reception is very kindness.

                  Very informal, staff helpful, views from room. Resturant available in hotel with compeditive prices. Room facilities and confort.

                  New hotel being built within 100 mtr over next 2 years so crane obscures the perfect view of the Matterhorn.

                • Group of friends

                  Room was so clean, just lovely & location perfect

                  Needs more pillows

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  As we were travelling with 2 kids, they upgraded us to a suite without any extra cost... the room had Matterhoen view, it was a nice cosy room, very clean and welll maintained. The restaurant staff was very helpful. We are pure vegeterian and they had no dishes to suit us... so on our request they made Maggi for us...(we gave them the maggi)... and there was no charges for these services. Also as and when required they helped us in warming milk (we provided milk), again with no extra charges... But yes, the staff (Reception and restaurant) looks slightly stiff in body language... but they are good.

                  Teh reception staff was a bit stiff in body language

                  Very nice Hotel, clean and good location, close to the center of the town. Breakfast was very good. We liked it very much !!!

                  Clean room. Friendly and accommodating staff - packed breakfast when we plan to head out early the next day.

                  9.2

                  very friendly staff. the hotel is run by a family and they make you feel like at home. A strong positive that hotel guests were mostly mature couples from switzerland with no noisy foreigners. Location is very convenient right in the center of the town only 7 min walk from Rothorn lift, 10 min walk from Gornegrat train and next to a bus stop to Matterhorn area. Ideal for a 3-4 days ski weekend. Would consider coming back.

                  The hotel room was somewhat small, but it didn't really matter for us since we we leaving early to the sloped and coming back late in the evening. The breakfast could have been a bit better with some more warm dishes, but again only a minor negative.

                  Cosy, traditional hotel, made special by the wonderful friendly staff, Perfect location for everywhere!

                  The rooms are amzingly small. You cant even pass each other, but its a traditional hotel and adds to the charm

                  The breakfast was wonderful. Lots of choices. Very fresh. Nice dining room and friendly staff.

                  The room was smaller than we expected but there was a storage/closet/cupboard in the room. Nowhere really to put large luggage if you don't want to unpack all for 1 night. The tulle (netting material) that was used to decorate throughout the hotel is not necessary here. (Along shelf spaces, in planters, window sills). It just doesnt belong and takes away from the Swiss ambience we like.
