“Lovely apartment with fantastic views”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had fantastic holiday in this clean, comfortable and well-equipped apartment. The views from the balcony are sensational especially as we were lucky enough to have great weather. All the booking arrangements were easy. Ann was very helpful and friendly and we really appreciated the wine, pizza and fruit that was waiting for us when we arrived.
The apartment is situated at one end of the village but everything you need is just a short walk away. Thanks Ann for a great stay!

“wonderful vacation experience”
Reviewed March 11, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We recently stayed at Ann's apartment for a ski vacation. It was everything we expected and had the added bonus of Ann's advice and recommendations on tickets, groceries, restaurants and even a hotel suggestion for an extended night stay. The apartment was comfortably equipped for the 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 grown sons, to eat and relax together at night. Beds without footboards were great for the tall among us. I would suggest bringing your favorite pillow if you don't like firm.

We opted to eat in for most of our meals as the restaurants in Zermatt are fairly expensive. Grocery stores were convenient at the end of the day to pick up what we wanted. Wi-Fi was a lifesaver for computer and streaming at night. Location is fantastic with easy walk to Matterhorn lift in ski boots (which I don't usually do). Snow amounts were a disappointment and limited skiing but you can't predict that when planning. Easy walk to restaurants, clubs and stores, which we did several times for dinner, nightlife and shopping. Be sure to check out the Matterhorn Museum while your there.

Ann was so easy to work with and promptly responded to my many questions before and during our trip. I would highly recommend this stay in Zermatt. It looks to be a beautiful spot in the summer too.

“Nice quiеt appartment, Convenient location”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Very clean and well-equipped apartment. Two bedrooms well-separated, so guests do not interfere at night. Stove, oven and dishwasher in the kitchen. Lots of stuff you might need, like spices, sugar, coffee, etc were left in the kitchen, so you don't need to worry at least initially.

Washing machine in the bathroom. Magnificent view from the windows. Very close to the main gondola. You can walk there in regular boots, and leave them either in the lockers, or just put on the shelf.

The host, Ann, is amazing. Her advises helped us a lot with logistics, etc. Highly recommended.

“A wonderful apartment in a great location with fantastic views.”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Haus Gornerwald is so well equipped that it is a true home-from-home. We stayed during the summer to enjoy the amazing hiking trails that radiate out from Zermatt. However, hiking every day means that there are a lot of clothes to be washed so to have a washing machine in the apartment proved to be a real boon. The kitchen has everything you need to make self-catering a painless experience. For entertainment the apartment has fast WiFi, satellite TV and a very comfortable sofa from which to view it. The icing on the cake has to be the spacious dual aspect balcony – to the south it offers a mesmerising view of the Matterhorn and to the west and north views over Zermatt to the 4000 metre peaks of the Dom and Taschhorn. Last but not least there is Ann, the owner. She met us at the station and took us to the apartment to show us how everything worked. Her knowledge of Zermatt is encyclopedic and she is more than happy to share it with her guests to ensure that they make the most of their holiday in Zermatt. We had a wonderful time and we can’t wait to go back … two weeks just isn’t long enough to do Zermatt justice and we want our “home-from-home” back again.

“Perfect apartment in perfect setting - We'll be back!”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great small apartment with all the features, furnishings, and necessities to get by while traveling. Well stocked kitchen and plenty of seating on the wrap around patio made for a perfect visit. We stayed for 5 days and will certainly return. The owner, Ann, is terrific and communicative. She responded to many queries I had quickly and completely. Many thanks to Ann for making her place available and my wife and I look forward to returning.

“Extremely comfortable and convenient for main ski lift”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I stayed at Gornerwald in March 2016, primarily for skiing and some hiking. The apartment is bright warm clean and very well equipped with a neat modern kitchen, large living area and two generous bedrooms. the dual aspect balcony is wonderful allowing exceptional views both up the valley to the Matterhorn and down the valley over Zermatt.
in just a few minutes you can walk to the main Klein Matterhorn lift which accesses a main ski area. There are hire maintenance and depot services there. In the evening there is the ever friendly Sparky's bar and restaurant or a few minutes further away the lively Papperla music bar.
The other lifts in town Gornergrat and Sunnega are a short pleasant walk away or you can use the frequent free bus service. There is a small convenience shop nearby though the main less expensive shopping is in the town centre.
The owner Ann is very friendly and attentive to guest needs including full information on the apartment and local amenities.
Local hikes are well signposted and though not all are open in winter it is easily possible for non skiers to hike from the apartment to meet others for lunch or apres ski, Blatten being a favourite of mine.
In all a spacious , convenient, high quality apartment with friendly management that I highly recommend.

“Perfect - a place you would like to keep secret!”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Very nice flat, 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, big living room, well equipped kitchen and huge balcony. The house is calm and well located. Nice sight on the Matterhorn. Easy walking distance from telecabin (200 meters), our 3 kids managed the walk easily with all ski gear. You are also quickly in the center of Zermatt, and it is a short walk to bakery and grocery.
Ann the owner is very helpful, and it is was great to be welcomed with flowers and wine! The apartment was clean and bright. We will come back with pleasure. Thanks Ann!
