My family spent several days in the summer in an apartment at Hotel Parnass. The hotel is a short walk from the train station, and the view of the Matterhorn was fantastic. The staff was very helpful, and the food for breakfast and dinner (dinner was included in the hotel rate) were excellent.

My wife and I spent three nights at the Parnass and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is very convenient for the ski bus whether heading for the Gornergrat railway, the Sunegga funicular or the Matterhorn gondolas. Also not far to walk to the Sunegga. Our hosts were very welcoming and the service in the restaurant excellent. Our... More

This is a delightful hotel. The owner Theresa tries to solve your problems and makes you feel very welcome. We had great trouble getting to Zermatt from London due to the consistent failings of First Capital Connect that runs broken trains to London Gatwick. But the hotel made adjustments to fit our plans and we looked forward to getting there.... More

We have stayed in many hotels in Zermatt over many years but this was our first time in the Parnass. The staff are very friendly and Theresa and her team is always there to help you. The breakfast was perfect and the dinners were very well presented and varied. If you do not like or are allergic to something on... More

I returned to the Parnass for February half term holidays. The hotels location is excellent: less than 10 east minutes walk from the main railway station on arrival and within five minutes by the skibus [green line stops on the bridge immediately outside the hotel] to all three major 'lifts' to the slopes [Sunnengar & Gornagrat going 'North' {left side...

This is a small family owned hotel that is right by the main street and a 7 minute walk to the train station. The owner (her name escapes me!) is delightful and has been running the hotel for years - her parents started it and she has taken over. She lives on premises so late check in is no problem... More

We stayed a week in one of the flats managed by the hotel Parnass (Haus Tuscolo), which are very well located in the resort, in a very quiet residence. Great view on the Matterhorn. The nice and welcoming owner will really go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay in Zermatt. I cannot find any bad things to... More
