I booked this hotel via Inghams with trepidation as some of the reviews were less than generous. What nonsense some people write. For the price charged you will not find better value in the Alps. I have skied in Europe on average 3 times a year for 19 years and stayed in all sorts of places from 4 star chalets in Val d'Isere to great hotels and B&Bs in Austria. I have always felt something could be improved on - that's human nature.
But what you get here is a simple hotel with immaculate rooms and very decent, hearty and authentic food served by staff who really go out of their way. There's digital TV and WiFi when you ask- and you don't get charged. One reviewer commented on the price of the drinks. How inexperienced must he /she be? I think 15 Euros for a bottle of red when they charge 5 for a small apple juice in Zermatt is a fair price. What's more, when I asked to switch an evening for a lunchtime meal it was offered without question - if only all hotels behaved so well. For the money this is a gem- and for ski convenience ( a few steps from the main gondola) in a place that connects you with the best resort I know - Zermatt - but with pasta in the evening, this is not to be missed. If you're worried about the bedside lighting (admittedly not this hotel's strong point) then get a torch or a life or both. Or perhaps ask the manageress - I bet she'd sort out this minor problem.
