The Hotel has accomodation that can cater to families requiring a Kitchen. Its located next to the Main Train station and Gornerat train station. Also nearby Supermarkets and lots of small touristy/snow activity shopping. My family and I loved it!

We did a last minute weekend trip to Zermatt and this was one of the few hotels available that was close to the train station. I think the location is the best thing about this hotel. It's a 5-minute walk from the station and very close to many restaurants and shopping. Family room was big enough and so was the... More

Steak was good and I opted for the peppercorn sauce. Go for the Italian wine over the Swiss. The waiters don't tend to smile but the food makes up for it. Family had lasagne and pasta which they enjoyed. I almost left my bag behind, too relaxed :)

We had a great stay at Derby in January. Went with my in-law family (total of 5). My wife and I stayed in a double room in the main hotel and my brother-in-law and in-laws stayed in the apartment across the street. Both rooms were great. Both rooms were fairly big and the pull-out couch that served as a bed... More

When you arrive somewhere new it's refreshing to easily find your hotel and be welcomed by the staff - exactly our experience at Hotel Derby. The hotel is just a few short minutes from the train station, on the main road in the center of town, which is nice at night when it's cold and you are hungry! In the... More

Hotel Derby provides services which are fully in line with the price for your stay. The central location of the hotel is convenient, however if you want to have full silence during the night, find a location a little away from the main street (Bahnhofstrasse); you might get surprised by an orchestra walking the street during the night (at least...

The restaurants food is excellent. The presentations are works of culinary art. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It is also just a very... More

Very relaxing apartment centrally located One bedroom suite. It was large, clean and the beds comfortable compared to other hotels we visited. Breakfast was part of the package and it was a great selection of food. When you factor how expensive food is in Switzerland this knocked $60 off the bill. The only negative is that the Wi-Fi was spotty... More

My husband and I had dinner here in May 2013 on our second night in Zermatt. The food was disappointing served with a heap of potato chips and limp vegetables. What happened to Swiss cuisine? It was a messy affair and tasted bad. We struggled to finish the food. The waiter shoved his hand infront of my face when serving.What... More
