We have just had our first stay at the Riffelalp Resort! It was absolutely amazing! It is a perfectly run hotel in the most beautiful setting. Right from arrival everything was just right....the staff could not do enough to make our holiday perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and booked for next season before we left. The restaurants are fantastic...

We wanted to have a glass of champaign in frint of the sunset with the matterhorn in the background. We have been waiting for 20min Nobody came despite the many waiters in the restaurant. Finally, someone came to ask what we wanted but it was time to get the train back to zermatt.

Lovely hotel and we return year after year. The crowd that stay there tend to be a little older. Service and rooms are great. You need to be good at time keeping in order to catch the train up from Zermatt. Last train is 1130pm - if you miss that there is no way up. Train takes around 18mins.

Only visited the restaurant lunch. Terrible place- should have left after nobody bothered to find an extra table (apparemtly the free tables were not available) and the interior looked much worse than anywhere else. Then the waitress approached us after a while and brought another order. Told that had not understood us and then just added 1 extra ingredient after...

Delicious lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed my club sandwich, messy but delicious. My daughter enjoyed her tuna tartar but it was a bit salty. The hot chocolate was yummy. Very nice walk to the restaurant from the train.

This has to be one of the best hotels in the Alps. Woke up each morning with a view of the Matterhorn. It is a true ski in and out experience. The hotel is extremely comfortable and the food exquisite. The service could not have been better and all in all a wonderful vacation.

I wrote a review of Riffelalp several years ago after our first stay, and I'm writing this review after our fourth consecutive year spending a week there each year. Everything I wrote in my first review remains true: this is, by a wide margin, the best hotel I've stayed at in a ski area anywhere in the world. Everything about...

Enviably located, just yards off the piste, this is a superbly run hotel serving Michelin quality food. Rooms (we were in the old wing) are adequate rather than spectacular but do enjoy splendid mountain views. Expensive, but in our opinion, good value for money.

This was my first time staying at the Riffelalp and the level of service and amenities are incomparable. I had stayed in the village with my three children the first time I went to Zermatt and although the hotel was perfectly nice there is no comparison to being on the mountain with views of the Matterhorn and the ability to...

I have visited Zermatt many times over the past 30 years, from my younger days of last minute discounted deals via chalet-girl friends, to working my way up to being able to afford to stay in this superb 5 Star hotel! For me the mountains of Zermatt are magical and the town a really beautiful and fun place to be;...
