This was our second stay at the Hotel Schoenegg, following a very successful stay in February 2011. The staff on reception were helpful and welcoming and again we were shown to excellent large and comfortable rooms (twice the size of the single rooms we booked for a similar price at a ski hotel in St Anton last year). The beds are very comfortable with soft feather pillows. There is a TV in the room but the only English Channel was BBC Prime (not worth providing) but I was happy to watch Italian TV and improve my language skills.
The day starts with a tranquil breakfast overlooking the Matterhorn (with an inclusive glass of Prosecco if you can manage it) then you are ready for a long days skiing. Skiing is easy to access, a few minutes walk to the Sunnegga funicular in the morning for us to catch the 8:50am or 9am train up (they leave every 10 mins) and then the whole of the amazing Zermatt-Cervinia monster ski area is available to you with its excellent mountain restaurants such as Les Marmottes, Paradies and Chez Vrony to name a few. The ski area was very quiet the week we were there, February24th to 1st March. At the end of the day a quick spin down the Riedweg run and you are back at the hotel for a drink on the hotel’s patio (if you’re lucky in the sun with a clear view of the Matterhorn).
The food in the restaurant is exceptionally good for half-board; it really is cuisine with delicate, perfectly proportioned courses which are more than adequate after eating lunch out at one of the fine mountain restaurants in Zermatt. One of the reasons we chose this hotel again was for the dining and friendly service. A lovely drink by the fire in the lounge every evening followed by a 5 course meal accompanied throughout by the charming resident pianist was a perfect end to the day.
The hotel is also opposite a very good ski-hire shop if that is required.
Another fantastic stay and I expect we will be back in 2015 if not before.
