We just returned from Zermatt and had a wonderful and memorable time. We stayed at the Hotel Holiday and found that the staff was extremely pleasant, accommodating, and helpful. The breakfast fare was very good, internet was free, and tap water was just fine. I would recommend this hotel without reservation. Remember, Zermatt is expensive, just like Aspen or Vail.

The service was quite good, the vacation was great. They've really worked on the exorbitant prices and it's better than some of the negative reviews. The internet no longer costs money, and they'll provide water for free.

If I was in a different mood probably I can say that was one of the worst experiences I had with hotels. As much as Zermatt is a phenomenal place that hotel I am sure can compete for the prize "worst hotel in Zermatt". Starting from the arrival when I got a phonecall from the owner to ask us when...

Shocking! They disallow even water at dinner unless you buy a bottle from them. Some at dinner is by the bottle, unless you go to the bar, order it & carry it downstairs to dinner. Everything is an extra charge. It adds up. And not all hotels in Zermstt are this ridiculous. BIG issue: they will pick you up at... More

Q: Do you know when I last paid for wifi internet in a hotel? A: Never! This is what I wanted to say to the lady sitting at the reception in the hotel. 5 CHF for 24 hrs for access to just 1 device. Which age do they live in? So, if we had a laptop, a couple of smartphones,... More

Whilst the ambiance could be improved upon, lighting a little too bright service a little too brusque and predominantly hotel guests in the restaurant, the quality of the food and presentation of the dishes makes this restaurant a cut above the norm. The chef and his wife were charming and very friendly and the fact that the chef has worked... More

Seriously...a franc per 5 minutes? In 2013? This was the most expensive hotel of the trip and after fantastic travel day on Glacier Express, tired, hungry, wishing for news and email...Internet sucks!! Asked several others and this far from routine here. Go elsewhere

We had a hard time finding this hotel. After asking directions from passer bys, we finally found it. It was a steep climb up and it was not easy lugging our luggage as the track was covered with snow back then. We booked a Quadruple Room with Balcony and it was clean. But WiFi was not available. We requested for... More
