Zermatt’s village base is a mixture of chocolate-box chalets and grand hotels. The chalets range from affordable to luxury, while the 120 or so hotels are mostly 3- or 4-star establishments. There are, however, an ever-increasing number of 5-star hotels in Zermatt.
The excellent Bellerive Superior Hotel is a well-run 3-star with small spa attached. The establishment is beautifully presented, with a small bar situated around an open fire. A buffet breakfast is available each morning and it’s only a short walk to the resort centre.
