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 thyme-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.
