Unique Hotel Post is one of a kind hotel in the middle of Zermatt! This four star superior hotel has been in town since 1875 and is one the best hotels in town! There are places that have a special magic, places that bring us so close to nature that we feel as if we were part of it. The mountain lodge style hotel made an impressive impression on me, let me tell you why…
First of all, you can’t beat the location! Zermatt is a gorgeous town with stunning views over the world famous Matterhorn. With sweeping views of magnificent mountain peaks, Unique Post Hotel takes advantage of its prime location! Although the hotel was built many years ago, today it is a trendy yet cozy place where it is fun to hang out. The lobby area with wooden touches gives a good first impression! It is a great place for meeting new friends, for exchanging ideas, warming up, etc. A cozy fire crackles in the stove and I loved the lovely corners and nice furniture. We were welcomed with a smile and our keys were handed in just seconds.
With 29 rooms, Unique Hotel Post is a pretty small hotel which is why they could offer a very personalized service. This is why Unique Post Hotel gets so many good ratings. Every staff member I met was friendly and everybody seemed to be enjoying working here.
The Matterhorn Suite we stayed in blew me away! The suite looked recently furnished in bright wood and feature nice materials and warm colors. Featuring two floors, it is the most gorgeous room I could have wished for. The private rooftop terrace offering the most amazing Matterhorn views is the best! It offers a 360° view over Zermatt… I couldn’t believe my eyes when I entered the terrace!! Other facilities I appreciated were the Nespresso coffee machine, high quality bathrobes and slippers. I did visit other rooms as well and must say they all looked very comfortable!
Our luxuriously appointed bathroom featured a nice walk-in shower, an oversized jacuzzi, double sinks and a separate toilet. After spending a full day in the mountains, spending some time in the jacuzzi was a treat.
After a day in the mountains, the SPA at Unique Hotel Post is the place to be. Although not too large, it does offer an amazing (large!) jaccuzi, a traditional Finnish sauna and a steam room. I could have spent hours here without getting bored. The place is so peaceful and quiet! I must highlight the most comfortable loungers.
Although Unique Hotel Post is a quite small hotel with 29 rooms, it does has 4 restaurants ranging from casual to more formal dining. The Factory is a wooden style pizzeria offering great pizzas and pasta. Pöstli Stübli is a traditional Swiss restaurant offering local dishes. If you like fondue or raclette in an authentic and unique atmosphere, this is your place! P.O.S.T is a more casual dining option if you’re looking for a small bite with a nice beer. I loved the terrace of this place with cozy lounges and a fire place. Excellent burgers, sandwiches, tasty hot dogs, soups and salads can be found at the Brown Cow: a pub where it is great to hang out and meet up with family and friends.
The first night, we had dinner at The Factory. This place is beautiful and gives you this truly Swiss feeling with all the wood. I highly recommend the veal steak accompanied with ligurian vegetables, herbs and grana padano. It was just delicious… As was my starter – a wonderful tomato soup with basil and cream and the yummie dessert – a banana split! Oh, and do order one of their signature cocktails! You won’t regret!
As we had such an amazing rooftop terrace, we ordered room service from the Brown Cow Pub and totally enjoyed our dinner on the terrace. The chicken burger with Swiss Cheese was heavenly, especially with those surrounding views. Truly unique and unforgettable!
Unique Hotel Post is a great hotel with an excellent location, offering top notch service and a wide range of facilities! I felt home here… Definitely one of my favorite places in Zermatt!
