At the end of our journey in Switzerland, we wanted to squeeze in the Matterhorn too since we were pretty close. I read reviews on Zermatt and decided to avoid staying there and I'm so glad I did. Zermatt was super busy and touristy and chaotic. St. Niklaus though is a tiny town and a quick hop from Zermatt. We... More

Good hotel, we enjoyed both and breakfast. The bedroom was huge as was the bathroom and had a balcony. Not a lot of choice in Sankt Niklaus but this was fine and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We checked into La Reserve after a long hike from Gruben, having chosen not to take the cable car from the top of the valley. I mentioned to the owner that i could "kill" a beer while checking in and he said something in reply that I didn't quite catch but I thought he said he would send some up,... More

Used this hotel for the first night of a KE adventure trip as the Group meeting point and first night stay, probably because St Niklaus is much cheaper than Zermatt! Pros: Warm welcome, helpful staff that speak English. Dinner was tasty with good "make your own" pizzas or a meat course. The Chef (owner?) "Peter" was very accommodating - coming... More

We stayed at this hotel on our Haute Route trip. The decor is a little dated but everything is very clean and well maintained. The restaurant was very good and the staff were very helpful. It is a little way from the station and on a road, but I think this is reflected in the price. I think it would... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while walking in the region and would highly recommended La Reserve. The hotel was clean and comfortable, with good food and very friendly staff/employees. We ate half board when available which is a recommended option- good value and plenty of food! St Niklaus is a very pretty town, easily accessible by train. We preferred... More

Three of us stayed here while doing the Haute Walkers' Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. We shared a room with a double and a single bed, a huge en-suite bathroom, TV and balcony. The hotel has a pizza-and-pasta restaurant (OK), and provided a good breakfast earlier than normal at our request. Although just off the main road up the Mattertal,... More

We stayed at this hotel on the last night of our Haute Route walk, I was ill when we arrived and the owner was so kind to me, lending us his car to take me to the hospital! The hotel was clean and comfortable. The food was lovely, a great selection at dinner and at breakfast. The staff were all... More

Two nights here, two rooms. Well situated just out of the centre, accommodation and food good, staff helpful and amenities all we required. Prices are quite good for the area but unless you need to stay at St Niklaus the "pull" of Zermatt just down the road is strong and offers a lot more alternatives
