“Excellent location for skiers”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Stayed here 6 nights and enjoyed the town and ski slopes. The hotel is in a central location, 5 minutes from center of Zermatt or to local ski bus, 10 minutes walking to train station and ski gondolas, and near pleanty of restaurants and bars within a minute walk. Can ski directly to hotel from Blauherd or Sunnegga areas which was nice at end of day. Also, the hotel has a ski room for storing and drying equipment each day. The owners, Katya and Mario were very helpful in getting us what we needed ski tickets , lunch reservations etc. When I slipped and fell the last evening on the street they arranged for me to see the local doctor immediately even though it was 7:30 pm. Turns out I broke my wrist and the doctor arranged the necessary surgery and transport to the local hospital.

The room was large and comfortable with a wonderful balcony to enjoy the views. We also enjoyed the large HD TV and the many BBC channels in english as we watched some of the winter olympics. The breakfast was good but after 6 mornings it would be nice to have a little more variety. If in Zermatt again I will stay at the Bellerive!

Room Tip: Get a room on a high floor with a balcony on the front of the hotel for the best Matterhorn views.

We have stayed in many hotels on our travels but found this one to be ideal given the attention that was paid to our needs by the owners. The owner/couple believe in making you feel welcome and relaxed. Great rooms, but best of all is the location and staff. We stayed for a week and intend to be back in Zermatt and stay here as many times as we can.

Great beds, easy to lifts, fun crowd in the hotel.

I stayed only one night at this wonderful hotel – and especially great staff and management team! The location is very central, the rooms and facilities are great. I was only in Zermatt for a weekend to participate in a ski tour, and we would have loved to stay a second night if there would have been vacancy. On the day we left – after the skiing in the late afternoon, the hotel staff granted us the use of the spa facilities to clean up and take a shower, providing us with all the necessities. The breakfast was excellent too with fresh products, I assume most of them from the region or Zermatt itself. Would immediately recommend this hotel for a great stay in a great place.

We stayed at the Bellerive from 14-22nd Jan 2014. Wonderful hotel, nothing flash, but very clean and everything you need during a ski trip. Ie. Heated boot room, wellness area etc. They only offer b&b but this suits us as we like to try out different restaurants in a resort. Would definitely use the hotel again, and highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed at the Bellerive for our ski-honeymoon. We were very impressed with the hotel and it exceeded our expectations. The location in Zermatt is great - close to the bus stop (for ski bus), main street is only a 5 minute walk and some nice bars and shops all within walking distance. The staff are very helpful and friendly and go out of their way to help you with your stay - providing great recommendations for dinners or where to ski when the weather wasn't so good. Rooms are great, with plenty of space and lots and breakfast ahead of a day on the slopes was perfect. There is a small spa/wellness area, but there was never a wait when we used the facilities and we only ever so 2 or 3 other people in the spa area.
All in - a fantastic hotel for our ski-honeymoon.

I am very late in writing this but wanted to share our wonderful visit in December. Such a beautiful hotel, location and staff. A beautiful dusk evening, enjoying a beverage on our balcony, wrapped in a blanket, staring at the Matterhorn and listening to the local church bells that must have rung for 10 minutes. The room was great and the heated floor was an added bonus. Katya and Mario were wonderful. Will definitely be back. I work for a large hotel company and really enjoyed this unique and boutique style hotel.

My husband and I stayed here during our first (but hopefully not last) trip to Zermatt. After reading all the great reviews on trip advisor, we were expecting quite a lot and were still absolutely in love with our stay here. Katya and Mario could not have been more lovely. They helped us with dining reservations, even going so far as calling and making reservations for us for the week. The breakfast offered was consistantly delicious and prepared us nicely for long days of snowboarding in some of the best powder we've ever experienced. Our room was beautiful and well designed with plenty of hooks for snow clothes/coats, a great balcony with a stunning view, and even a heated towel rack in the bathroom that kept our towels toasty warm! (so nice!) The bed was super comfortable and there was plenty of storage for clothes.
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. It was very clear that Katya and Mario love what they do and take enormous pride in their business. It certainly shows throughout their property and on their faces. They even prepared us a meal to take on the train they day we left as we would be missing breakfast.
In addition, in such an expensive town, this is a real bargain for what you get. We truly cannot wait to return.
