Description

One of Zermatt’s original hotels, the Zermatterhof has a refined ambience and oozes elegance at every turn. The rooms and suites are generally traditional in style, however, many have recently been given a make over to cleverly combine old and new.

Situated in the center of the village and enjoying fantastic views of the Matterhorn, it is positioned back from the main high street in its own gardens. From the moment you arrive this hotel exudes traditional style. The hotel is within easy reach of three ski areas either by electric taxi or on foot, and is central to the village’s extensive shops, restaurants and nightlife.

Start the day with a hearty breakfast in the Prato Borni restaurant and enjoy a wide choice of French and Italian specialties in the evening. Al fresco dining at sunset or by candlelight is possible at the Lusi restaurant which serves light cuisine with a Mediterranean touch. There are 2 bars ideal for relaxing with a cocktail by the fire or listening to the pianist.

Relaxation facilities include a spacious pool, whirlpool, saunascape with sauna, steam bath, alpine grotto and ice grotto, or indulge yourself with a revitalising massage or beauty treatment in the spa. rooms.

Zermatt is a special place that every skier must visit. Steeped in Alpine history and overlooked by the iconic Matterhorn, in our opinion, car-free Zermatt has more charm, sophistication and romance than any other Alpine resort. Added to this, the ski area is extensive, varied and complemented by the finest mountain restaurants in the world. There is plenty going on!

Location & Directions

Zermatt, Switzerland

Positioned just back from the main high street, in the middle of the village, and just a 5 minute walk from the Gornergrat railway.

When to go

Zermatt offers excellent conditions throughout a long season. Skiing is well under way by early December and even late November due to high altitude glacial terrain around 4000m. As the season progresses, lower runs offer great conditions too and the skiing below 2000m is appealing when it gets really cold. By April when other resorts can be knee deep in slush, Zermatt will have the best conditions in the Alps. Check out the Zermatt Unplugged music festival in April too.
