The Hotel Schonegg sits high above Zermatt town with spectacular view of the Matterhorn, but guests do not need to climb up the hill – there is a convenient lift accessed through a tunnel from the bottom of the hill directly into the hotel. We were met at the railway station by the porter in his electric taxi and taken directly to the hotel.
The hotel is located within easy reach of the railway station and the Gonergrat Mountain Railway. There is also easy access to the Sunegga funicular by either walking up the road to the end of the ski run where there is a lift or at town level almost next door to the tunnel exit from the hotel. The Matterhorn Paradise station is about 15 minutes’ walk away
We stayed for 5 nights in March and chose a Boutique Double Room with Matterhorn View which was superb.. The large room was furnished in traditional alpine style, with lots of wood and a lovely sunny south facing balcony. Fresh fruit and bottled water were provided on arrival and there was an extensive minibar, towelling bathrobes and slippers also available as well as plenty of coat hangers – a real treat these days!! There is also excellent superfast wifi in the hotel which can be accessed easily from guest rooms and the public rooms.
We elected for the half board option and we glad we did as the food was spectacular. Not only is the dining room spacious with beautiful views down the valley (and of the Matterhorn, of course!) but the food was exceptional. Breakfast is an extensive hold and cold buffet. Each evening is a 5 course meal and although there was only one choice for each course, without exception every course on every day was fantastic. Guests are also given an option, each day, to ask for an alternative to the published menu.
There is also a small gourmet restaurant and a bar with table and chairs outside to allow guest to bask in the sun and enjoy great views.
The staffs were welcoming, helpful and friendly with nothing being too much trouble. During our stay it was a special birthday and the hotel helped me to spring a surprise for my husband including a birthday cake complete with sparklers!!
