We stayed 2 night in July 2014. Two adults and a child. Enjoyed ourselves. Would stay here again. Ambiance is relaxed and friendly. Breakfasts are copious and nutritious; the home-made muesli is wonderful. Homemade jams, a very special treat. Warm hospitality.

The owners of the hotel stretch themselves to please their guests to an amazing extend!! Our 16 months old had lots of fun there, there is even a playroom with enough toys to keep him busy. We had a nice stay also, it was very relaxing and the food was amazing: what a nice surprise in a small resort!!!

Stayed here with a groupon voucher, and wished we'd known that our package included a room without bathroom. It changes your mood somewhat if that kind of thing hits you by surprise. But we've stayed in way rougher places before, so we took it in stride. Once we accepted that little detail (and it wasn't too bad either) though, we... More

Patrice the owner is a great guy, and the waitresses were excellent. Food and service was excellent all week (both the dinner and the breakfast). Beds were really comfortable. It was 5 minute walk to the cable car. store ski gear inside the house (easy to tie in and out). A great stay. Highly recommended!

This is first review we've ever posted, but we simply had to. We've just spent a super week skiing with our 2 boys in the Trift Hotel. This place is a great find in Zinal, run by a wonderful French couple, Patrice & Caroline. Patrice and Caroline were wonderful hosts. Patrice is a wonderful joker, but a more attentive host... More

Visited Trift Hotel in July 2013. Our room overlooked the lovely main street in Zinal. The room was cosy and comfortable, and although we had shared bathroom facilities we had a sink in the room. Breakfast was better than others we had had during the journey, and our dinner of raclette (which was 'eat all you want') was delicious. Staff... More

So, to be clear, Zinal is magnificent and a truly beautiful place to visit, summer or winter. The Trift is in a great central location with clean rooms, showers and bar. That's all good. Just don't expect anything approaching a warm welcome or a decent breakfast. The owner(?) could not have made us less welcome, refusing a group of 6... More
