I will recommend Hotel Parnass in the fantastic town of Zermatt, Switzerland; a paradise for skiing! The staff in Hotel Parnass is just wonderful! We had a lovely stay, and were very well taken care of!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony facing The Matterhorn mountain - the view is fantastic!!!

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. the owner was awake at 2am to welcome us. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel is superbly located for skiing or access to the Zermatt high street. The breakfast is okay but then we discovered that one should avoid croissants in Zermatt, they appear stale and thick. Great place

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 the evening menu, which is posted at breakfast time, you can ask for something different provided you let the staff know in the morning.The location of the hotel is a real bonus as the ski buses for the Klein Matterhorn, Sunnegga and Gornergrat stations stop in front of the hotel. However, the Sunnegga station is only a few minutes 'flat' walk away...very important to know if you are wearing ski boots! The rooms are basic but spotless. The lounge area is adequate and wifi coverage is excellent.

Room Tip: The Matterhorn view rooms are well worth the extra!

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 of the bridge looking up to the Matterhorn} and the Matterhorn Paradise going 'South' {right side of the bridge}.
Room [I had a single] was basically furnished but had excellent ensuite and both were impeccably cleaned every day. South Facing rooms have a clear view of the Matterhorn and are, to me, well worth the supplement.
Single public room is a comfortable place to sit and chat or have a pre/post dinner drink.
Both the above have very good wireless access included in the price.
Food at breakfast is 'typical' European with fruit-juice, cereals, yogurt, breads, cheese, meats, boiled eggs and a range of hot drinks, freshly prepared.
Dinner is well worth the additional cost. Five courses typically begin with a cold starter, soups, salad, a main [on my visit this included beef steak, fish, pork and veal] and a desert. All were well cooked and presented. Add in a well priced choice of both bottled and 'open' wines and 'free' tap water.
Restaurant service is very good. Friendly and attentive staff are multi-lingual.
For skiers the 'boot room' has modern boot heaters, reasonable racking for skis and easy access via an outside door, locked at night.
Add in the management of Therasia, always attentive and overwhelmingly friendly, and you have everything you need at a price that is excellent value for Switzerland.
I will shortly be rebooking for 2015!

Room Tip: South facing have Matterhorn views on all floors

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 as long as you tell her so that she can be waiting for you. The staff speaks English, German and French. I heard one of the ladies speaking to the housekeepers in French. The breakfast isn't much, but then again Europeans don't do big breakfasts - you'll get breads, cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, granola and boiled eggs. I would definitely stay here again as it was super clean (remodeled last year) and for the price in Zermatt, it is a good location and the hotels around it are easily 50-100+ Swiss Francs more. If you're skiing, you don't need a lot of frills!

Room Tip: Rooms can be small, but the Matterhorn room is a little bigger and offers a view.

The hotel is in the center of town making it a good location to stay. Easy to very thing and the bus stops at the hotel.

The people here are very friendly and are very helpful.

Breakfast has a nice meat, cheese, juice, yogurts, cereals, and the rests rainy has an awesome view if the Matterhorn, weather permitting.

The price of the hotel makes it a great value and it is very clean. The ski room is nice and includes a wall of boot dryers.

I highly recommend this hotel.

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 say about the Hotel Parnass and the Haus Tuscolo.
I would definitely choose this place for a next stay.
