This four-star hotel was the perfect warm and cozy stay while in Zermatt. With gorgeous views of the Matterhorn, this family run hotel recently underwent a renovation adding modern amenities to the Alpine charm.  In the main building traditional style rooms can be enjoyed, while in the new building, you’ll find 16 modern rooms. Connecting the two buildings is the main reception, the comfortable bar-lounge and a cozy sitting area. Upstairs is the hotel’s dining room, where we enjoyed a delicious traditional breakfast buffet each day. For dinner, guests take in a five-course meal. A memorable one for us started off with a broccoli cream soup topped with cheese beignets, pepper mascarpone terrine with olive vinaigrette, and the salad buffet. Then for the main entrée, we had a roasted guinea fowl breast with thym-lime sauce served with fresh noodles and etuvée of leek. We finished the meal with a fresh mango cocktail.

Definitely don’t miss their spa facilities, where you can enjoy the whirlpool, Finnish sauna, steam bath, organic herbal sauna, quiet room and massage treatments.
