        Nice Breakfest, provided GF bread for my son....location

        ....more gf selection only on the second day eg.muesli and bread roll's 4 story building only one lift, a problem when bus loads of people arrive with lot's of bags, as it blocked the lift for some time. Also due to two buses arriving, we where more or less asked to dinne else where, when asking about dinner reservation. Kitchen closes at 8 pm

        The Staff was outstanding!! .. Service in the resteraunt was perfect. The Chef was awsome. (If I ever opened a gourmet resteraunt I would pay her whatever she wants to have her work there). The meal plan was both an exceptional value and a treat. Anything I needed at the Bristol was there just for the asking ... Great place ... Great people. Although it was quite pricey, the value compared to what you get anywhere else in Zermatt, or Switzerland, was very good.

        It was available for the night I needed and was close to the centre of Zermatt, next door to a grocery store. Empty mini-frig in room. Arrived early, but staff very obliging about letting me leave bags at reception. Same on departure. Duvet was lovely. The view of the Matterhorn was awesome. Staff understanding about not charging for wine that was too sour to drink. Complimentary taxi service to the train station very much appreciated.

        My mistake was to mix up the name Bristol with another far better class hotel, for which the special offer would have been extremely tempting. Would probably not have chosen the Bristol had I realised. It was not ideally located for my purposes, as I came to see a friend living down behind the train station, nor did it offer the special touches I had hoped, naively, to find. Instead, it was a fairly cheap construction, with a fairly unattractive lounge and music, while the room on offer - very basic - was just over a particularly busy traffic corner. Although it may be convenient during the ski season for access to lifts, I was there off-season, and the taxis and buses and delivery vans were a constant presence. In fact, the bus stop was just outside the door. An area for food and drink, but not for the idyllic quiet some people seek in a mountain resort. Pity too that the bar was so poorly stocked that the wine was undrinkable.

        Located at walking distance to nearby market and Matterhorn cable car station . It has well kempt rooms and cool surrounding scenery.

        Of course nothing great but if there would be a provision of room service for hot beverages like they have a minibar it would have been great.

        Nice Location, 15 minutes walk to the train station, a lot of coffee shop and restaurants, friendly staff.

        Small Room, No coffee maker at room.

        The night we checked in they had us in a smaller room than they had confirmed by email but immediately put us in the right room the next morning! They bent over backward to assist us in getting our luggage from Fly-Rail-Baggage Swiss Rail making a total of 3 trips to the train station on our behalf and making phone calls even though it was in no way their issue. Staff was very helpful and friendly! Breakfast was quite good and more than a typical European continental breakfast. Very "quaint"...pleasant to sat at the bar tended by the reception staff later in the evening for a last glass of wine after going out for dinner before bed! Lovely living room-type "lobby" to sit and read, play cards, chat with other guests.

        The rooms were a bit smaller than most Americans might be used to and the bathrooms didn't have enough towel bars but experienced travelers to Europe will understand and expect this and new travelers just need to be prepared...it is not a showstopper!

        What a great location! I loved waking up in the morning and opening my balcony door to see the Matterhorn right in front!

        Location. View.Breakfast.

        Bedding in appropriate. Comforter too warm for bedroom temperature. Light weight blankets unavailable.

        Great location. Good breakfast.

        Internet didn't work in room. When I told them about it they didn't fix it. You must request that the hot tub be turned on in advance. One day they refused to turn it on.

        The staff were really helpful and accommodating. And the breakfast was delicious! The location is terrific and the view out the window amazing.

        Location.

        The front desk service was really poor and unprofessional. There was a problem with the cleanliness of our room, we talked to the receptionist about it expecting she would make something to solve the problem, the only thing she did is she changed us to a smaller and way less comfortable room for the same price.

      • Single

        Very conviently situated about 7 minute walk from the station. Transport is provided by the hotel. Situated just out of the tourist center but still in town so quiet. Breakfast excellent. Receptionist was very helpful

      • Family with children
        8.8

        The family room was very spacious on the fifth floor. The rooms were kept clean although our bathroom in a double with matterhorn view, was small and it was impossible to stand in the shower because of eaves! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely and the ski facilities (boot room, hire, ski passes etc.) all based in hotel. We were very happy with the Hotel Bristol

        Small bathroom as mentioned above.
