All of you know that I’m a huge fan of Zermatt! I was so excited to visit and stay at Le Mireau, one of the top rated hotels in this wonderful town. This upscale four star superior hotel has a prime location within Zermatt. Although the hotel has its age, they recently renovated the entire hotel. It’s totally up to date with wonderful decorations all over the hotel.
The building itself gave me this grand feeling right upon arrival. The lobby area is luxurious, well maintained and gave me a good first impression. Check-in staff was among the best I have ever met. A big smile, asking how the journey was while arranging our keys was a lovely experience. After I was told that we would be staying in one of their Alpine Junior Suites with a magnificent Matterhorn view, I could not wait any longer and wanted to see it myself.
I can easily see why our room is called a Alpine Junior Suite. Decorated in a very stylish way, the room absolutely had everything I would expect from a four star superior property. The wooden details in our room were wonderful. The sitting area with two comfortable couches was great for lounging and relaxing. The bed was extremely comfortable. And probably the best thing about the room was the wonderful view of the Matterhorn. It actually is one of my favorite mountains, I could look at it all day long 😊
Bathroom featured a bath tub, an oversized walk-in shower, toilet and oversized sink. Turn down service was provided every night, always a bonus!
You could never get bored here! I was happy to find out that the hotel has a large beautiful indoor new built pool. It is a very large pool for hotel standards and has the ideal water temperature. The adjoining jacuzzi is great to relax. The Alpine spa area is a must visit when you stay at Le Mirabeau offering several relaxing areas with waterbeds (probably the most comfortable loungers I have experienced at any hotel), several kinds of sauna’s (including a Valaison wood sauna and a mountain herb-scented sauna), a mountain crystal steam bath and a glacier shower (which is a treat after a session in a hot sauna). There are also several treatment rooms and a (small) fitness room. I just loved the spa area and recommend you to experience the same!
There are several dining options at the hotel as there are two on-site restaurants. Restaurant Veranda is the main restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I must say that breakfast at Le Mirabeau is a top notch gourmet breakfast… One of the better I have ever experienced in Zermatt with everything one could wish for. The extensive buffet has to offer something for anybody. Sparkling wine was a bonus! Do note that they offer several à la carte options as well. Restaurant Veranda has been awarded with 14 Gault Millau points. The tasting menu we enjoyed at night was delicious. From the beef carpaccio to the wonderful veal, it all not only tasted great, the presentation was also perfect. Service was great.
Marie’s Deli is located right at the entrance of the hotel. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, it offers local traditional specialties and French delicacies. Besides the restaurants, the hotel has a cosy bar where they serve fancy cocktails in a classy environment.
I loved my stay at Le Mirabeau and definitely recommend staying here when you are in Zermatt. Every staff member I met was friendly, professional and did everything to make sure I had a great time. Highly recommended!
