a boutique, well appointed luxury hotel that is an ideal ski in/ski out option unlike most of the hotels in zermatt, which are more central to shops/restaurants but not the lifts. There are 3 lift options to access ski slopes (railway/underground train or cable car), and this hotel is < 100metres from the cable car, which is the preferred choice of the 3 options for most types of skiers as it goes the furthest, and allows access to 2 zermatt ski regions (plus italy of course)
You are a 10 min walk from the church in the town centre, with plenty of taxis to take you back should you wish, altho' we walked (and loved it) every night to/from dinner. A large ski hire with great gear is right by the cable car (< 100m from hotel) and is open to 7pm each night - handy for those arriving later in day...
We had a lovely superior room in A block (301) , with a balcony and a mezzanine (big enough for my teenage son to sleep in). floor to wall windows allowed me to see the lights of zermatt from the bed - the view was just spectacular.
Really enjoyed the huge breakfast buffet, and also the "happy hour" free snacks after skiing, but what really stood out for me in this hotel were
(1) the beautiful heated indoor/outdoor pool/spa and relaxation area, together with dry and wet saunas and other relaxation rooms
(2) the very personal and high level of staff service at every opportunity, and always with a smile - eg knowing me by name/bringing me my favorite type of coffee as soon as I sit down for breakfast each morning without being asked/ happily recommending and booking restaurants/ski guides/helping with doctor appointments (our group was somewhat injury prone) etc etc
No complaints at all, and this will be the place I will stay when I return.
