We stayed at the Matterhorn Focus for two nights and loved it. The hotel is excellent, great facilities, good rooms, good location with stunning views, very cool James Bondesque tunnel to reach the lobby, excellent pool and spa. But the best aspect of the hotel was the staff! Every one was so friendly! We really appreciated all the little things... More

We just returned from a weekend at the Focus. It's a bit of a walk outside the main town, but it's ideally placed for the lift up on to the Little Matterhorn. It's also perfectly placed for great views of the main mountain. Our room had a direct view. Stunning. The electric car picked us up from the station and... More

The Focus offered the most delight during our two week holiday in Switzerland and Italy. The hotel and rooms are tastefully decorated, and all the finest touches to make your stay memorable can be had. We really had just all the wonderful things to describe Focus. Thanks to the team for making our two nights in Zermatt so magically happy... More

This hotel was perfect in almost every aspects; service, internet, staff, infra. We've enjoyed very much and been very satisfied. However, there are two weakness. 1. Distance to rail station. If you like to walk a lot, it is fine. Otherwise, it will be some burden. But, you can use local shuttle. 2. View to matterhorn There is one huge... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 glorious nights in June. We had the best hotel experience in years! Upon arrival we were greeted by Patricia who whisked us away to the super comfy lounge for welcome drinks and an introduction to the hotel. In terms of architecture this hotel is an industry leader...it is quirky and intimite, it... More

From the moment we were picked up till the moment we were dropped off we felt welcome at ease. The staff here put in a wonderful effort to creating a relaxing atmosphere, starting with the welcoming drinks and the tour of the hotel. The suite was wonderful and the view amazing. Waking up to the Matterhorn is a great way... More

We have stayed in several luxury hotels in Zermatt, and this one is certainly our favorite! The hotel is exceptionally beautiful – everything from the lobby to the rooms and... More

An excellent experience, with lots of fantastic touches - indoor/outdoor pool, amazing views of the Matterhorn (even from the training room), complimentary snacks, glass staircase (which has to be seen...through...to be believed) and excellent bedrooms. The shower and bed in my room were both very good and there was even a mezzanine level as a dedicated study. Very few niggles... More

A friend and I stayed at the hotel for a week of skiing. The service was exceptional – personally tailored and warm yet unobtrusive, and above all genuine. The energetic and youthful staff catered to our every need and many times anticipated them. Like the modern style of service, the property itself is a pleasure, mostly glass and tastefully quirky...
