“The Perfect Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had an absolutely fabulous time here in the Bella Vista. The room we had was cosy and suited all our needs- the bed was one of the most comfy we have stayed in! The room was spacious and impeccably clean.

What made this hotel/chalet so wonderful was firstly the lovely ladies who do a superb job of making every guest at home, secondly and our favourite part of the stay was the delectable breakfasts. More homemade treats then you could ever imagine! A truly scrumptious spread of breads, cheeses and meats. With cooked eggs as an option.

This gorgeous chalet is a must if visiting Zermatt.

This place is beautiful. We stayed here for 2 nights (10 of us in 4 rooms) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were very nice, the staff very friendly and helpful including recommending a wonderful restaurant to eat at for dinner (at Hotel Julen) and making reservations for us. I would highly recommend this hotel to stay at and we would definitely stay here again when visiting beautiful Zermatt in the future.

We loved this wonderful Family run Swiss hotel. Fabienne was a wonderful host. We had plans to leave early one morning to go skiing and she made breakfast available to us earlier than the regular time. Breakfast is excellent. Our stay included a Tuesday night which is the nite they serve a Fondue and Raclette dinner. The dinner was excellent. The wellness room is an added bonus with a sauna and steam room. There is also a jacuzzi available for 5 Swiss Franc. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and sitting in the jacuzzi there is breathtaking view of the Matterhorn. You will notice this hotel has many excellent traveler rating and it will not disappoint you.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights on our trip through europe and we must say this was probably our best hotel during out trip. They picked us up from the train station on arrival which was a nice touch. Our room was beautiful and homey, with a beautiful complimentary homemade cookie in the room. The views were amazing and could see peaks of the matterhorn through the trees. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and as we had an early check out due to a train to catch they packed us a breakfast to go. An amazing stay and would recommend to all!

My wife and I stayed for six nights in August 2013. I found this Gem through Trip Advisor and can say that everything I read was true and more. The family including mother Bernadetta, daughters Christina and Fabienne were courteous, and most helpfull. The staff were very much like part of the family and behaved so. From the time we were collected at the station and returned my wife and I had a great holiday with the hotel as the catalyst. Breakfast was excellent..fresh, local and plentifull The bed room was spacious and well maintained with a view of the Matterhorn that was WOW!!
A real treat on return from a recommended hike was the use of the Wellness centre. Again well maintained and a great way to relax and refresh. If you return early from your adventure, the terrace is available to sit back with a drink and take in the views.I can't think of an negative except that you have to leave it all behind including all that Zermatt has to offer. While we found Zermatt village to be more expensive compaired to other resorts we visted, we felt it was worth it all. The hotel on the the other hand was great value.
Thanks to all at the Bella Vista.
Albert / Ireland

Room Tip: Book a balcony facing the Matterhorn...how often will you get the chance.

There is just one warning, after staying here you may never want to leave. Cosy, quiet and with fresh, delicious breakfasts , this hotel sets a very high standard. The service is impeccable and we always got the feeling that we were the only people staying there. Just a few minutes walk to the main streets.

We had two connected double rooms with views to the Matterhorn. Breakfast was excellent with homemade breads, ham, yoghourts, fresh orange juice... They have a big spa with views. The family who owns the hotel is very nice and helpful. I want to come back in winter!
