We have just spent New Years week at the National Hotel. We have stayed in Zermatt 3 times prior to this visit, each in a different hotel, but on return visits now, we will look no further. From the very start, we were given the warmest of welcomes even though we arrived much later than expected - around 10.30pm. Supper... More

We just read some of the less than five star reviews and wondered if the writers stayed at a different hotel. We loved our stay at the National. The hotel has some old world charm and is fantastically located, just 50 yards from the Sunnegga funicular. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. But what makes the National stand out is the... More

Dear Ian Just wanted to express our thanks for taking the time to complete the TA review. It was simply fantastic to have you here at our NATIONAL!

Truly first class. Great atmosphere with impeccable service in a facility reflecting the image of the iconic swiss Inn. Well designed SPA, complete with pool, wet and dry sauna. The highly professional staff and their friendliness make this hotel and negate the image of the dour swiss innkeeper. Pricewise, it is reasonable in this rather exclusive market. We shall return...

The location of the hotel and the dinning room are what stood out as really nice. The Sunnegga station is just a few steps away. The dining room was very nice with excellent wood work. Breakfast was average. The room was nice and spacious. The hotel overall was average.

Dear McLean! Thank you for your time and your average good rating!

Also, I am pleased to hear that you have thoroughly enjoyed the furnishing of... More

The Hotel staff, from top to bottom, were a delight, there wasn't anything they would not do for you, nothing was a problem, you only had to ask . I have noted that some of the guests had mentioned the proximity... More

We had a lovely stay at the Hotel National. It made a great base for exploring and hiking. The staff made us very welcome every time we returned to the hotel, made a booking to eat at another restaurant , and took the time to make sure we had everything we needed. After long hikes the spa was a very... More

There is not a single negative about this hotel. Our room was on the 4th floor (top). It had a balcony that faced the Matterhorn. It was done in the old world style of wood. The staff was extremely attentive, the room was immaculate, the bed was comfortable and the tap water was ice cold and delicious. If you are... More
