Priority Early Check-in
Choose from 69 guestrooms and suites that epitomize natural Swiss style. From the classic guestrooms, some with balconies, to the high-end suites with intimate fireplaces, all have beautiful views of the Matterhorn or the historic village. Warm, contemporary décor complements sumptuous beds, wide windows, and marble bathrooms, and Nespresso coffee machines, 24-hour room service, and television with video-on-demand create a true home-from-home stay.
Many of the rooms interconnect, making them ideal if you’re traveling as a family. For an adults-only evening, the concierge can arrange babysitting so you can appreciate time together in the spa, enjoy a cigar and cognac in Stars Bar, or meet the horses in the stables.
From gourmet Alpine cuisine to French brasserie cooking and a sociable fondue restaurant, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof caters for all your moods and tastes. Head to one of the two bars for a morning coffee, afternoon tea, or early evening cocktail.
Alpine Gourmet Prato Borni – In his Gault Millau-rated restaurant, Chef Heinz Rufibach specializes in reimagining traditional dishes from the Valois region in sumptuously decorated surroundings. Try the innovative apricot gazpacho or lamb’s cheek with celeriac.
Brasserie Lusi – Named for a local lantern used by climbers, this bright, welcoming restaurant offers French and international dishes — and some excellent Swiss and French wines. The Lusi Lounge is the breathtaking terrace where the impressive Matterhorn frames your languishing continental breakfast, afternoon tea with brownies and pastries, or evening cocktail.
saycheese! – In a relaxed, convivial atmosphere, saycheese! is the place to go for delicious Swiss raclettes and fondues with cheeses from the Valais region — including Mutschli cheese from the Zermatter Horu dairy. Try the popular Zermatterhof fondue, served either with Champagne, winter truffles, or porcini mushrooms.
The Ruden Bar – Named for Reverend Josef Ruden, whose forward-thinking idea encouraged the community to build the hotel as a summer retreat for wealthy tourists, the snug Ruden Bar is a great meeting place for a coffee, a lunchtime snack, or an early evening glass of champagne.
The Stars Bar – Listen to piano music until the small hours while sipping a cocktail or a warming brandy. The all-day Smokers Lounge invites you to ease into a black-leather armchair in front of the open fire while trying a fine cigar from the humidor.
You’re always welcome to groom or help clean the stalls of the exquisite Lipizzaner horses at the hotel’s stable. Next, visit Zermatlantis Museum in front of the hotel to read stories written by eminent former guests dating back to when tourists started to arrive in Zermatt. Finish your in-house day by indulging in a treatment at the Vita Borni Alpine Spa, or visit its purifying ice grotto. There is also well-equipped gym.
As one of the first world-class climbing destinations, Zermatt will still tempt the alpinist in you. The concierge will happily arrange an expert mountain guide or beginner climber courses, or you can explore the area on the 62 mi / 100 km of mountain-biking trails. In the valley, the nine-hole Matterhorn Golf Course has spectacular views. Try summer skiing on the glacier or enjoy the 223 mi / 360 km of slopes across Switzerland and Italy in winter.
