“They deserve it all.”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Location: Very central, and I would say this specific location has more of a "neighborhood" feeling as compared to anywhere in Zermatt.
Hotel: Newly re-done; stylish while making the best use of the space available.
Reception & Service: Very good, they support you in everything and are always there for you.
Rooms: Good size, wooden floors - adds a lot to the "mountain" feeling.
Spa: Very practical and nicely done; the steam room could, to my humble opinion, be a bit warmer with more steam.
Breakfast buffet: Not the biggest buffet I have seen but all very tasty.
This hotel will be my top choice when I go back.

Room Tip: If you want the Matterhorn views, try to go for the south facing rooms on floors 4 or 5. The suite o...

It's all true, the hotel is wonderful. The owners and staff immensely friendly. The location is just perfect. The view of the Matterhorn (if the clouds break which, sadly for us, was only on the last morning of our trip) was amazing and worth the extra money for the room with the view, if even for a couple of hours!! Wow.
Breakfast was nicely done, from delicious coffee options to the orange juice squeezer.
The only things in the negative column were the shower was awkward (a design issue) and the spa was a little on the small and tight side. The facility was nice and clean though.
Highly recommend !!

Owners Katja and Mario are first rate proprietors who made out stay relaxing from the moment we got there. From outstanding restaurant recommendations to helpful hints, they were great guides for our first time in Zermatt.

The rooms are clean and efficient, the beds very comfortable and the amenities were tremendous for a boutique hotel. As a European hotel, the rooms are small - but not uncomfortably so. Breakfast was great! The hotel is perfectly situated - a walk from each of the various ways to hop on the mountain. Indeed, we walked to every restaurant at which we dined in town.

We look forward to staying with Katja and Mario again as soon as we can.

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!
