        Very friendly staff. Tim was best host we had on our entire European tour. Made up for some rude waitresses at a nearby restaurant. The hotel is properly rated at four stars. There are nicer five star hotels if you want luxury but this one seemed to be the right hotel at the right price for Zermatt.

        Potter was really helpful in getting our many luggages.

        Had to pay chf100 more per night because the check in staff says the hoteI has to charge for our 6 year old daughter who is staying with us. So ended paying chf400 per night! Most hotels do not charge extra for young kids staying with parents. So was really disappointed with this. At this rate, could have gotten much better hotel!

        The minute we were greeted warmly by the receptionist and entered our hotel room, I know I am going to write a fantastic review about this hotel. The male receptionist is very friendly and even offered to carry our luggage to our room. We were made to feel very welcomed the minute we stepped into the reception. This is by far the most beautiful and most well decorated hotel we have ever stayed in our ten days in Switzerland. The room, dining area, lounge area, in fact every corner of the hotel is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Even the room key is very unique- it is the most antique and heaviest key I have ever carried. The jacuzzi and the room is very nice. Room is very clean. We are given a room on the first floor overlooking the Matterhorn. The breakfast is the best among all the hotels we stayed in Switzerland. There are fried bacon, eggs, a good assortment of unique tea, a variety a fresh fruit, all nicely cut, etc.. romantic background music and songs were aired during breakfast, nice lighting, nice decoration-very romantic indeed for breakfast. Everything is perfect.

        Except there is no kettle jug provided in the room. However, there is a bottle of complimentary drinking water provided. Anyway, you can easily go down to the reception counter and they will happily fill a kettle of hot water for you.

        I loved the fact that it was so conveniently located to both the SSB and GGB stations and therefore quick and easy to find. Being from the country, I liked the smelly cow paddock I walked past before arriving at the entrance. The room was attractive and comfortable and had a view of the Matterhorn from the window. Pretty special!!

        The hotel stuff was very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. The location is good, near both train stations.

        Unfortunately Zermatt has become too expensive, crowded and businesslike. There are definitely much better places to ski for a lot less money.

        The staff is VERY friendly and want to make sure eveything goes perfectly.

        Slow wi-fi connection, the deco is out of date.

        Central location. The hotel is next door to the main train station, and the Gornergrat train terminus and an E-bus stop. Several excellent restaurants are around the corner. Bayard Sports & fashion ski rental shop is 100m from the hotel. Excellent breakfast and good facilities (ski lockers, boots drying, sauna...)

        The hotel does not have a restaurant.
