Prix Bienvenue: award-winning Zermatt hotels

17/06/2014

In 2014, Switzerland Tourism once again awarded prizes to the 100 most welcoming hotels in Switzerland. Zermatt is represented on a grand scale with 13 award-winning hotels.

Guests simply adore the joie de vivre exuded by Zermatt‘s 13 award-winning hotels. Aside from displaying great competence, kindness and warmth, their cheerfulness is infectious and puts the guests in an exuberant holiday mood. This is one of the reasons why 70 percent of all visitors to Zermatt are regular guests. They have come to appreciate the legendary welcome they receive at Zermatt’s hotels.   

Loyalty

A further reason for the numerous awards may be the hotels’ management and employment structures. Firstly, over 75 percent of all hotels in Zermatt are owned by their operators who also manage the hotel. And secondly, managers and staff members often remain with their hotel for decades. This provides continuity for visitors over generations and creates a close bond between hosts and guests.

This year is the second time that Switzerland Tourism has awarded the Prix Bienvenue to the most welcoiming hotels in Switzerland. Zermatt‘s 13 award-winning hotels won their prizes in the “Cosy leisure hotels”, “Larger leisure hotels” and “Luxury hotels” categories. With under 6,000 inhabitants, Zermatt was prevented from competing in the “City hotels” and “Luxury city hotels” categories.
