“friendly and homely”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

we really liked this small hotel in Zermatt. Stayed recently for a family skiing holiday. The rooms were charming and comfortable. The staff at Front Office were very helpful and the breakfast was of a good quality and variety. The hotel is also well located, a short walk from the main high street. Really enjoyed.

Room Tip: some rooms on one side of the hotel have distant views of the Matterhorn.

A friendly family run clean, comfortable and slightly old-fashioned Valais style hotel well located in central Zermatt. The rooms are warm, spacious, airy with nice balcony, and although ours was too low to have a mountain view, it had windows on both sides. Furnishings throughout are pleasant and traditonal, lots of ornaments, ribbons, figurines etc (think the swisss equivalent of Laura Ashley rather than Philippe Starke). Bathrooms are large, spotless with lots of towels.
The ground floor dining room serves an excellent breakfast in light and airy surroundings in a relatively newly built conservatory, whilst the bar and lounge area provides a good venue for a drink or coffee near the fire, the complimentary bowls of fruit and a tea samovar are nice touches.
Staff were friendly and helpful providing useful advice on the town's restaurants, and transporting guests to and from the station in their cosy electric microbus.
In summary a great and not too expensive place for a weekend or perhaps a week, surrounded by a good choice of restaurants and easy walking distance to all Zermatt's main attractions.

Everything was perfect. The lady in reception was so kind, the room was excellent, perfect location. I wish the bfast was a bit more complex ( i just wished they had the totally swiss bircher muesli).

Room Tip: make sure the room is facing the front garden

I was at this lovely Chesa Valese on May 14,11. Unfortunately I had a chance to stay only 1 night there. The hotel is lovely,nice decorated both reception ares,restuarant where I had breakfast and also the room I stayed. The view from my room is magnificent.
I can see high mountain, church from the terrace.
The staff was very nice.helpful. Also this hptel has a car to pick me up from the train station also from the hotel to the train station.
This hotel has spa facilities which I used it because it was raining and I could not go out.
There are steam,sauna room,jacuzzi for the guests.
It was very nice staying at this hotel. I will definitely go back there again!

Room Tip: just ask for it!

we have spent an amazing vacation in Zermatt. my family and our friends spent a week at the Chesa-Valese hotel.the hotel is decorated in rustic style and is very bright and welcoming
the rooms are lovely and clean, the stuff was very friendly and helpful .The hotel is centrally located, near by a ski rental shop and trendy bar for apres ski drinks.the lovely town is full of restaurants and bar so after a day of skiing there are plenty of choices,if you prefer hiking I suggest going down from Furi and have lunch at a charming place called "zum see" reservation is essential.I am looking forward to our next visit to Zermatt and I would certainly return to the Chesa-Valese hotel

Had booked this hotel on the web www.myswitzerland.com and so glad we did. This hotel was everything we required, from the courtesy pick up at the station when we arrived, to the friendly welcome and assistance during our stay. Breakfast was included in our rate as well. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view towards the snow covered mountains, after all it was January!. Free Wi-Fi access in room (ask at reeception for the code). Good location and our expectations were exceeded with this beautiful hotel. Will certainly stay here again on our next visit to Zermatt. The room rate we paid was worth it!
