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

Our 8th stay at Hotel Parnass and enjoyed our stay just as much as all the previous visits. 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

I spent over a week at the Hotel Parnass at the end of December 2014 and I really enjoyed myself. The atmosphere is very friendly and tranquil. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. There is a lovely lounge area with lots of interesting reading material for if you want to quietly wind down after a trip up the slopes.... More

This was our 10th stay for a week of ski vacation at the Parnass which offers probably one of the best price/value package in Zermatt. Theresia and her team are doing a great job, always friendly and helpful. We just love it up there and are looking forward to our next stay. The food is great, it's good location makes... More
