“Great location for ski holiday”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

When: 8-15 Feb 2014. Who: couple.
Cost: 400 GBP pp incl flights & transfers
Agent: SkiWorld

Everyone says it so it much be true !-) This property is very well located in Zermatt, the local ski buses, should you need them, stop outside the hotel and it's a short (5min in boots) walk to Sunnega ski lift.
The 'hotel' itself is basic. You get a 'cosy' room and if your not unlucky a view of the matterhorn [we had 1st floor room 5 the one with the triangular bathroom] which is a real treat. Food was OK+ but the dining area was a little cramped and there was no other public area available. We were concerned about security as the building was empty for most of the day and the front door was occasionally left unlocked. However the hosts said they never had any issues. Speaking of the hosts, two lovely lads George and Peter absolutely nothing wrong with them that a decent Swiss watch and a hair cut wouldn't sort out ;-) They kept the place tidy and made the beds daily. Skiworld rep Emma was full of bubbles and did a very decent job including the day she lead a group over to Italy.
I've only been to about 7 ski resorts (USA, Canada, France, Austria) before Zermatt but imho Zermatt equals or surpasses the best of them as a resort town and a ski area. It is more expensive but well worth a visit. I've rated the 'hotel' as very good not so much for it's facilities but for it's location and value for money.
Special mentions to Alistair of SkiClub UK who made us very welcome and gave us two great days of touring the mountains. Also to the ski rental shop at the Sunnega station (http://www.flexrent.ch) we rented our skis there and stored our boots and skis each night. Very helpful and obliging guys.

Room Tip: Top floor (2nd) rooms (7+) quieter but stairs are narrow. Room 5 has long-ish bath and good view.

The room has a balcony facing the snowy mountain. HOw nice! The restaurant serves local deer meat and other games at a very affordable price 30-40 Franc each. So delicious! We walked around the town, mostly tourist kind of pizza, pastar costs the same price as this one. Love this place. Highly recommend.

We stopped in Zermatt for one day and night. The main reason for the visit was to see the Matterhorn and luckily it was a clear day. We were fortunate to get to stay in the room with a balcony facing the Matterhorn. What a view to wake up to!!! Rooms in Switzerland are very basic but was all that we needed. The bathroom was a good size and very clean. The knotty pine walls were homey. The breakfast was included and was served by a friendly and smiley young woman. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests, particularly a young couple from Australia. There is a gourmet restaurant on the lower level of the hotel but we weren't able to eat there. Others have said that it is quite good. Restaurants in general in Zermatt are quite expensive. This small hotel was comfortable, an easy walk to and around the main streets of Zermatt and breakfast was included. In an expensive resort town, the price was very reasonable.

Room Tip: The rooms with a balcony facing the Matterhorn have an exceptional view!!!

Terrific location with a huge balcony area you can actually walk out onto. The views of the Matterhorn were awesome! The room smelt like fresh timber, bed was very comfortable with our own bathroom and breakfast really good. This was one of my favourite stays in Switzerland!

We spent two nights in a room with a great view of the Matterhorn. At night we left the window open at the top and were lulled to sleep by the sound of the river running just outside. The climb up the stairs is steep and difficult if you have large bags or are older.

The restaurant was very good with meats grilled over a wood fire.

The WIFI worked very well.

We were happy here and would return.

I stayed two nights at this little hotel in Zermatt and was very pleased. The Swiss couple that runs the place are very friendly, and speak several languages. The hotel is about a five minute walk from the train station (some places in town you'll be walking quite a ways and uphill.)

I'm a solo budget traveler, so I opted for an inexpensive single room with a basin in room, with the WC/shower in the hall (but it's only shared with one other room). All the other rooms have balconies I believe.

The breakfast was typical European continental with bread/rolls, cheese, ham/salami, butter, jam, yogurt, muesli/cereals, coffee (or order Milchkaffee, and you'll get a little can of coffee and a can of hot milk), juice.

This place also serves dinner, and the menu looked really good. I had to picnic my whole trip in Switzerland since I'm on a budget, but the food they were offering looked pretty great, and was priced similarly or less than what other places offer.

Hotel Le Mazot is definitely worth it and gets an "A" rating.

There's no luggage storage here, except in the Ski room which isn't locked. You can risk it (probably without any problems) or you can take your stuff to the train station, go down the stairs, and use the lockers. A large locker (big enough for two large Rucksacks) costs 10 CHF for 24 hours.

Room Tip: Solo travelers can save by staying in a single room with a shared WC/shower. You won't spend mu...

Antoinette (one half of the team that runs this charming hostelry) gave us a warm greeting at the door and took care of the paper-work in double-quick time. We were delighted with our room. Every inch or square centimetre was put to efficient use. Windows from both the bed and bath-rooms had stunning views of the Matterhorn. Our decision to eat in the hotel's restaurant turned out to be a wise choice. Not only was the dining-room lovely, with charming Austrian-made furniture, but the food was outstandingly good. Roger, the chef, is the other half of the dedicated duo that imbues this hotel with elan and energy. Sadly, we spent only one night at Le Mazot prior to embarking on the Glacier Express next morning. We shall seek other opportunities to return and experience more of Zermatt's many charms, and will definitely stay at Le Mazot again.
