I had my first stay at Parnass in January 2015. I was travelling with a couple of friends for a weekend of skiing. The hotel is in a great location, with a view of the Matterhorn from the dining room and proximity to lifts and transport. This is a smaller, family-run establishment that is clean and quiet. The rooms were... More

We travel all the way from Johannesburg in South Africa to enjoy this wonderful adventure and fabulous ski holiday. Theresia and the staff are always so wonderful to us and spoil us with a wonderful 5 course meal every evening. We will... More

Very centrally located but surprising quiet. Great views of the Matterhorn. Every night the food was excellent. ( and they were very accommodating to less adventurous younger family members). While this chalet better suits adult travelers it worked very well for our family. Rooms are fairly basic but didn't spend much time there. Really liked the staff who made the... More

This hotel is a perfect mid-price hotel. The welcome is great, the rooms are clean and functional, breakfast is really nice, the price is right and the location is superb. Superb because the bus stops right at the door (ok, 30m) and one of the ski lifts is also directly walkable in 5 minutes.

I just finished my trip to Zermatt with my son. It was a bucket list trip on the occasion of my 65th and his 35th birthdays. The town is quaint, but resort-like....and expensive. The skiing is unsurpassed in the shadow of the Matterhorn. The Hotel Parnass was selected because of reviews I had read on travel sites. I don't normally... More
