Grand Hotel Zermatterhof

Dating back to 1879, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof is one of the grandest of the grand dame hotels in Zermatt, offering 19th century elegance combined with 21st century amenities and polished service.

There are 78 guestrooms and suites in total, ranging from the intimate Grand-lit and Standard rooms, which feature wood panelling, and either Double, Queen or Twin beds, to the spacious and luxurious Suites, which have separate living and sleeping areas with space for a sofa bed, and some with views of the Matterhorn. Families can be accommodated in Suites, or in interconnecting guestrooms.

Three restaurants, two bars and a smoking lounge provide plenty of space for apr├Ęs ski indulgence. The Prato Borni restaurant serves a leisurely breakfast, while for lunch and dinner the menu focuses on fresh, regional produce, sourcing freshwater fish from mountain streams and Lake Geneva, wild game from the mountain slopes, and fruit and veg from the Valais region. Other dining options include French Brasserie Luisi, and the 'Small Cheese Restaurant', where cheese fondue is very much the order of the day. For a digestif, retreat to the Ruden Bar or Star Bar, or settle down in front of a roaring fire with a fine cigar in the Smoking Lounge.

For relaxation, swim lengths of the spacious pool, or lounge in the whirlpool, sauna, steam room or alpine grotto. The Spa offers a range of massage and beauty treatments. Aside from the extensive ski runs that are easily accessible from the hotel, guests can explore the village and surrounds using the complimentary bicycles, guided hikes, and rock climbing in summer months.

Why We Love It

The hotel is located in the heart of the village, with views of the Matterhorn, and is within walking distance of access to three separate ski areas. The restaurants, bars and shops of Zermatt are also within walking distance.
