Fodor's Expert Review Mont Cervin Palace

Bahnhofstr. 31, Zermatt, Valais, 3920, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

The central location and luxurious setting help this Zermatt grande dame stand out, with rooms divided between the main building and connecting annexes. Accommodations are elegant, with woodsy chalet-style touches in keeping with the mountain location. Since the hotel is named after the iconic peak (in French, naturally), most rooms have Matterhorn views. The main restaurant has a light, modern ambience with dishes to match. There are also more casual lunch and dinner options, Grill Le Cervin and Ristorante Capri, a Michelin-rated Italian restaurant open only in winter. Half-board arrangements are available. The hotel reserves covered parking in and transportation from Täsch.

PROS

  • station pickup in a red antique horse-drawn carriage
  • wellness and spa facilities that are tops
  • attentive staff and luxurious accommodations

CONS

  • big-city luxury removes you somewhat from the village atmosphere
  • many hotel restaurants open only in the winter
  • parking and transport cost extra
