This is a long overdue review - we stayed here in the summer of 2014, and had the most amazing time. The setting and location of the hotel has to be experienced to do it any justice. Our room had a spectacular view of the Matterhorn, and it does really look the best from this hotel (this was our third... More

What an incredible hotel! Stayed here for a week in March with my husband. Being a sensitive traveller, I requested a quiet room. Not knowing much about the hotel, we arrived with uncertainty to such a warm welcome. Everything from check in, to our room, to the decor, to the exceptional staff. Everything during our stay was absolutely perfect!! Quite... More

Just visited whilst staying at the Mont Cervin, we had lunch at Riffelalp, saw some rooms and the SPA. In my opinion this is the eprfect ski lodge if skiing is of the highest imprtance, right among the slopes, you can easily go down to Zermatt and then back with the last train at 22:00. Fantastic place and you do... More

This hotel is a myth in sky resort accommodation. What can I say more than that it is perfect? Just a few notes to those who to go there for the first time: - The hotel is on the sky slopes, great during the day and if you are looking for a calm holiday, but if you want to join... More

This hotel is fabulous for a week of skiing. You are directly on the slopes in the middle of the ski area. Wellness and outside pool with view on Matterhorn is unique. The 3 restaurants are superb, but without formalities. We have been coming since 8 years.

i visited Riffelalp 4 times in the last 5 years for my skiing vacation. I always complement the stay with another 5 star hotel in other ski resort. The conclusion, as I already wrote in my previous Trip Advisor reports, is that there is no better place in Western Europe for a ski lover who does not need social figuration... More

We got the train, and had the most delicious soup outside on the first day of our holiday.delicious soup, attentive front of house. We then walked back to Zermatt. By far the best soup we had and worth the trip up the mountain. Go to the top, walk as far as you can, have lunch and continue wall down.

This is the hotel where tourists come back year after year, and is a little "secret" in the mountains of Zermatt. This hotel offers everything, even if location is the most impressive with Matterhorn just outside your window. The hotel offers spa, fitness and three different restaurants. The only disappointment I can think of with this hotel is that they... More

We stayed at the Riffelalp, having previously skied from Grindelwald for a number of years. The ski in / ski out is a marvellous benefit, although the slopes are not suitable for beginners. Rooms are beautifully Swiss, with quality fittings. We ate in the three restaurants - enjoyed them all, particularly the fondue in the Swiss Keller and the wonderful... More

I have stayed in many 5 stars mountain hotels, but this place remains my preferred one. Have been to this fantastic hotel on several occasions and each time I go back with the same enthusiasm. Firstly, the rooms whether you take a nostalgia room or a chalet room, they are simply just so cosy and includes absolutely everything (and even... More
