    This hotel is located in an easy to reach location from the train station and the town is so small that it's easy to walk anywhere. The bed was comfortable and the maid did a good job keeping it clean. The front desk staff was very nice; they greeted us with a glass of fresh juice upon on our arrival which was quite nice. This is a large hotel (chain) so you don't get the personalized service of a small hotel but all of our questions were answered and the staff was very helpful.

    We were a bit disappointed that after making a reservation in January for a stay in July that there was no room available for us the first night we arrived. The manager took us to an apartment on the outskirts of town and gave us a complimentary night which was nice of him but not the same as being able to get settled into your room. The apartment was dirty (I never let my bare feet touch the floor) and had no amenities (no internet access, no hair dryer, etc.) since it looks like it's designed for someone who lives there permanently. The next day, they moved our luggage to our room in the main hotel; they even threw in someone else's dirty sock that they found in the apartment. After requesting a room with a view of the Matterhorn six months prior to our arrival, we were most disappointed to be put in a room in the bowels of the hotel under the tennis court with the Best Western sign shining into our room all night long.

    Comfort in room and cleanliness, close proximity of train station

    Cost of the food a bit high, example, breakfast cost sfr 15 pp, just a few minutes walk away you could have a traditional breakfast for sfr 15 for two????

    Had some difficulties finding the place as it has changed its entrance and staff not on duty when we phoned from the telephone provided at the rail station. Building working carried on next to our room and I became ill, requiring a doctor. After pleas for them to cease work they did so, but construction work in hotels is proving a significant issue. Always check ahead for this.

    Restaurant Chef &Service (Food &Serving) Fantastic. We enjoyed recommendable swiss local wine by chef. Good Job!

    Free Pick up service man was very rude.He threw our luggage roughly while putting up the tram bus. Hotel receptionist did fair with our advance booking for matterhorn view balcony &charged us to pay extra amount on arrival to get the room of our choice.Not worth for money.

    View of the matterhorn. Kind of lodge-like.

    The hotel was charming in an old and dingy kind of way. Off the beaten path.

    Excellent hotel with wonderful views, very good restaurant.

    The parking was not nearby,it should be pointed out that the parking is at the Alpen hotel in TASCH and you get to the hotel in Zermatt by train.

    Superb

    Friendliness of the staff, check-in process and room,in general were all great... as was the breakfast buffet... The location was 5-10 minute walk from the train station and downtown.

    We didn't have ANY issues with this destination and would highly recommend.

    Fabulous

    Quite possibly the hardest bed I've ever laid on, horrible! The pillows were like giant pizzas and heated up your head like an oven We ended up using the rolled up robes as pillows( no heated head syndrome :-) Having stayed in 100's of hotels both us agreed that we had two of the worst nights sleeps ever! Shame as the facilities, staff, location are all great, but at the end of the day you go there to sleep

    Very good

    We liked the location of this hotel and the Pool/spa area. After a long day of hiking, the spa was perfect. We had a room on the ground floor, under the tennis court. It felt very strange being down there at first, but we soon found it comfortable. We could see the Matterhorn if we went outside of our room and that was great. It was nice sitting in the garden area in front of our room. The room was very spacious and quite comfortable, so that was good. Breakfast was good. Wifi was good. If I was to return to Zermatt, I would look at other accommodation options first, but for a couple of nights it's fine.

    We found the staff quite unfriendly, apart from the young guy who drove us up to the train station in the little bus, he was lovely and very friendly. One of the receptionists was quite ok, but the other one was very unfriendly and would barely even look at us when we spoke. We also stayed there on a Saturday night and due to the location of our room we were right near the bar, and they played extremely loud music and very bad karaoke all night. We wouldnt normally complain about this because noises are all part and parcel of travelling, but this bordered on being very annoying.
