The Rex is just perfect, clean and comfortable, with everything you could want, it even has twins that you can separate. I have stayed here summer with my wife and winter skiing with a friend, and it is perfect for both. It has a great wellness centre with sauna, steam room, pool etc, and its close to everything Zermatt has...

Location of the hotel, ambience and view from the room balcony was simply breattaking. I stayed here for 2 days with my family during our summer vaccation in July2013. Courtesy extended by hotel staff right from reception to room service was amazing. We chose a room / suite with Matterhorn view. The room was spacious, had all the required luxury...

4th visit to the Hotel Rex having last stayed there 4 years ago. Delighted that we found it as good as we remembered. Excellent service from all the staff, especially at Reception. Great pool and spa area. And well kept grounds with plenty of seating and loungers which were newly replaced while we were there. Great location for all facilities...

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Rex. We deliberately chose a bed and breakfast hotel so that we could sample the various restaurants in Zermatt and we were not disappointed. The room was spacious with plenty of storage space and a lovely ensuite with everything we needed. Breakfast was plentiful with good choices...

Lovely welcome as usual - this was our seventh stay. Great breakfast buffet. lovely room and beautiful spa. The staff are all excellent. The area is quiet but only a few minutes from the centre of town and a 100m from the ski bus.

If you are coming from anywhere around the world and want a very nice, down-to-Earth place to stay in a village that has it's fair share of uber-wealth and pretention - Hotel Rex is it. We will return to the...

We asked for a room with the view of the Matterhorn when we booked, but on check in we were placed in a room at the back of the hotel - I called reception and asked if we could be moved, and we were - the new room had an excellent view despite being on a lower floor. The good...

Our first impressions of Zermatt were incredibly positive and we were particularly impressed with the fact that all of the vehicles in the town are battery powered. The Hotel is in a stunning location, with a tantalising glimpse of the Matterhorn. The gardens at the front of the hotel are immaculately maintained. The hotel staff were unbelievably helpful, especially "Christina"?,...
