Hotel Matterhorn Focus

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Had the pleasure of staying here over Xmas with my husband and friends. Great view of the Matterhorn and close to the lifts. Very friendly staff. Enjoyed a delicious buffet champagne breakfast included in the room charge. Reception also recommended a great restaurant in walking distance to the hotel (Sonnmatten). A wonderful way to spend a white christmas.

From the moment that Chris, the owner of the hotel, took the trouble to personally and cheerfully fetch us from the Zermatt train station (close to midnight - 5 hours of delay on intercontinental flight), we knew that we were in for a treat. We were not mislead by this - it really got better! The rooms are stunning (tip - spend a little more for a view of the Matterhorn), the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfast buffet is scrumptious and the heated indoor / outdoor swimming pool is a must after a hard day of skiing. Another advantage is that the hotel is very close to the main lift station that takes one to the skiing areas and, when there is sufficient snow during winter months, one can ski back to within a short distance on an easy red slope. The spa and wellness centre is tranquil - we had soothing massages to ease aching bones after a couple of days of hard skiing. Chris and Sonya (his beautiful wife) have created their dream hotel and their passion, together with a motivated staff, to make you're stay a pleasant one is what sets this gem apart from all others, in our opinion. We have stayed in famous hotels all over the world, and the quality of this hotel is right up there with the best, but the passion, commitment and personal touch of the owners is what sets this one apart! We intend to go back again, same time next year

There could not be better location for skiers. Literally next to the ski lifts and a few steps from the arrival of the slopes. Hotel has a modern design, rooms are spacey and comfortable with good equipment and amenities. Spa and swimming pool are a delight for after ski. Service is great and owners and employees are very amicable and ready to help at any time. Breakfast offers a wide assortment for all taste.
And the absence of restaurant is definitely not an issue in view of the plethoric choice Zermatt has to offer.
And our dog got a warm welcome as well!
We recommend and will go back with pleasure!

we just returned from our honeymoom. Our stay at the focus was awesome. Very cool and contemporary hotel but a bed and breakfast feel as others have stated. We were lucky to book a suite with a freestanding tub and matterhorn view. View was amazing.
Staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Jasmina took good care of us
Location of hotel next to lift is awesome. Having lockers in the hotel was super convenient
nothing better than a day skiing, returning to the hotel for a few drinks at the pool/hot tub and finishing it with a wonderful romantic tub. We hated to have to go grab food at a restaurant. But once we did every meal we had in town was great!! Didnt have a bad meal all trip.
even the in room shower was spa like and refreshing.
Definitely can tell this is a family business and we loved supporting that
cant wait to celebrate an anniversary at some point back at the focus

Room Tip: we wish there was a full service restaurant If there was i dont think we would have left the hotel

Extremely well-designed hotel- super detailed and well thought out. I loved how the hotel had a bed & breakfast feel to it. The staff was very helpful and the best part was that the hotel is SUPER close to the lift and rental place. Also included delicious free breakfast, jacuzzi/pool was awesome and the view from our balcony was amazing! If I ever go back to Zermatt, i would definitely stay at Matterhorn Focus again!!!

We stayed here late nov 2013 based on reviews from trip advisor. We could not have been more impressed. Fantastic hotel, great room, lovely breakfast, terrific swimming pool and right next to the chair lift. Could not recommend it more highly

We stayed in the Focus suite. It is absolutely stunning and is the best place we ever had. The big windows with high heights give an amazing look to the mountains including the Matterhorn. The ambiance is so cosy that you want to stay inside and have dinner in your room rather than going out to the village.
We were worried that we would hear the ski-lift which is very close to the hotel but you do not hear a sound of it and it is obviously very convenient if you want to go skiing easily.
The pool is very nice and warm.
Maybe the breakfast could be improved a bit (food choice, napkins on the tables) but this is only if you are picky.
The staff is extremely nice ; we definitely plan to go there again.
