Hotel Restaurant Schwarzsee

Reviewed February 12, 2013

I've skied passed it many a time and had lunch on a few occasions as well but never thought of it as a hotel. On the recommendation of a friend we spent 3 nights there and how right she was. In theory being 1000m above Zermatt with nowhere else to go once the lifts have closed sounds daunting. In practice, the stunning views, friendly staff and owners (not forgetting the lovely dogs) and opportunity to be the first ones out in the morning made it something unique and special. One night there was a howling gale with almost 100km/h winds and being tucked in with a glass of wine made it all the more different and welcoming. The food (fixed menu only) and accommodation are good but don't expect luxury - that doesn't matter ... This is the kind of place where you want to be able to look back and go "I stayed there". I will again!

Hotel Schwarzsee is an outstanding and extraordinary place located on the bottom of Matterhorn. The view from the rooms are spectacular. Rooms itself are very comfortable and clean. The spirit of the owner and the staff is refreshing, energizing and more than customer-friendly. No wish even uncommon ones will be satisfied. After breakfast you just need to go out of the hotel and you are already inside the scenic skiing and hiking area. A must-go place!

Room Tip: You might think the view to Matterhorn is awesome!? Check the view down to Zermatt! :-)

Great music, great food and excellent ambience at the Hotel Restaurant Schwarzsee. A great place for lunch or hot chocolate or gluwein at the end of a cold day.

Dave does a great job of keeping it all together and we look forward to having lunch there again.

My wife and myself stayed here for 4days during the christmass period to do some skiiing. The location of the hotel is great with a fantastic view on the Matterhorn. You are already in the middle of the slopes so in the morning you can be the first ones on the slopes. Fantastic!!

Dave and Tanja are two very friendly and down to earth people that make you feel very welcome in the hotel. The other personel is also very friendly.
Very good choice for us.

We went up in the lifts just to do a bit of sightseeing as we are non skiers and let me tell you we had not expected this amazing place. The band were in full swing and the owners Dave and Tanja were very welcoming. The food was divine and the "craic" was great. I would love to go back to Zermatt just to visit this little gem :)

My partner and myself had the best night of our trip from Australia in the hotel, We had not booked our accomodation in Zermatt, so went on the cable car to see the Matterhorne just for the views, and the friendly staff persuaded us to stay with a view to the mountianfrom our room and provied us with dinner and breakfast. Sally and Chris say thanks for a super night and we recommend a stay to anyone. We will be back!

My daughter and I, along with four friends stayed at the hotel for two days in early August. We are vegetarians and our hosts went out of their way to cook special dishes (that were excellent). The service was great, the was hotel well kept and quiet, and the staff were attentive and friendly. Overall a great atmosphere - highly recommended to all.
