Tanja and Dave are amazing. Their hospitality, flexibility, and service were incredible! They made our Matterhorn climb more special! I hope to see them again soon! The rooms were very clean the food was great! Thanks, Neil

We stayed at the Hotel/Restaurant Schwarzsee on August 7 and 8 2014 during a trip to Zermatt. Dave and Tanja were very friendly, energetic and helpful. When I did not get the opportunity to climb the Matterhorn due to bad weather, Tanja helped to arrange an alternative climb that my wife and I did together. It is a very short... More

We stayed here for a few nights in September in Room 1. The food was superb, and the atmosphere was quiet - seemed like we were there during the quiet season - but perfect for me! We were able to wake up to views of the Matterhorn. The room was very comfortable, and had luxurious fixtures - specifically the shower.... More

If you want to stay close to the skiing in Zermatt Hotel Schwarzsee, halfway up to Kleine Matterhorn, is the best choice. Very good service too. And the view from the terrace with Matterhorn on one side and Breithorn on the other.. Dave and Tanja, who are the owners, gives the hotel a very nice and easygoing atmosphere. We will... More

To stay in Hotel Schwarzsee, situated at 2583 m altitude, feels like an adventure and an exclusive one on top of that. You can only reach the hotel by lift or skis. This means that when everybody else have been herded down the slopes by the pist guards, you have the terrace and the Matterhorn to yourself. In the morning... More

Terrific place to have lunch. Easy to get to for skiers. Non-skiers can get there on the Trockner Steg bubble lift. Good food and greatviews of the Matterhorn. Terrace outside is wonderful if the weather is good. Helpful and pleasant staff. A must!

Great hosts/owners! Fun apres ski atmosphere (with a band) in the early afternoons. Lift ticket from Zermatt is 49 Swiss Francs return (remember to grab a map of the ski runs at the ticket counter); I don't ski, wanted to spend the next day in Zermatt--went up Friday aft, went back down Sat., then had to buy another return to...

Wonderful peace and quiet when all the skiers go down the hill at 5pm and we had the Matterhorn all to ourselves until the next morning. We could be the first group up the mountain and get more fresh slopes than anyone who stayed down in Zermatt. Comfortable rooms, tasty food, great staff.

I enjoyed staying at Schwartzsee so much I'm planning to visit again in 2015. Great value and staying halfway up the mountain was an experience in itself. There was a fantastic Matterhorn view from our room, and it was amazing to watch the pink glow of sunrise on the mountain.The light was incredible and had a huge energising effect --... More

We were lucky enough to book a table to spend St Patricks Day here. We had an absolutely fantastic day. The views from the restaurant were stunning and the food was fabulous. The live music was great and certainly created a party atmosphere. Tanja & Dave worked tirelessly with great staff to provide an amazing day. Can't wait to go... More
