Although the Admiral may not have the pretensions or even some of the views of Zermatt's grander hotels, after 15 years of successive stays, we can safely say that you will be hard pushed to find a better place to base yourself for an ideal all-round skiing holiday. In terms of your stay, you could not be in better hands... More

Such an incredible value. Stayed for 3 days in mid-January and was blown away by the friendly staff, the cozy and traditional decor, location and above all the view. Location is within walking distance to the Gonergrat train as well as into town. Hotel staff is happy to pick you up/drop you off from the train station. Breakfast is on... More

We stayed with kids for 2 weeks on a ski holiday. Perfect staff, location and rooms are wonderful and recently renovated. Views straight over the river to the Matterhorn. Short walk to the rail station and all shops. Access to the mountain is right out the front door. Kids loved the hotel and the staff were the best. Breakfast included... More

Most rooms have a balcony with a view of the Matterhorn. It was clean, comfortable and warm. Free Wifi. Staff were friendly and full of advice on... More

Rooms, lobby, and restaurant were all very clean and stylish, hotel owner and employees were all super friendly, and with rather reasonable room rate, we had a great time in Zermatt!! Will definitely stay at this hotel for our next visit to Zermatt. Thank... More

Comfortable room, great location, very pleasant hosts. Upon arriving at the train station, there was a large board listing the hotels and a direct line to call them. I picked up the phone, dialed the Admiral Hotel, and they were there to pick me up in only a matter of a two or three minutes. Very friendly driver. I've been... More

This hotel was just perfect: friendly staff, close to ski rental and to the access of the slope or mountain hiking, if we come again we will definitely book here. (Special thanks to all the restaurant recommended by them they were all great as well)

Run with naval precision and a professional hoteliers passion room and facilites belittle the 3 star status.The B+B offering leaves you free to explore the many resort restuarants although you'll need to book your dinners, ask Pierre and...
