The Grand Hotel Zermatterhof has welcomed aristocracy and the international elite since 1879 and the tradition continues today. Grand is not simply an adjective in this moniker – the hotel indeed recalls the grandeur and elegance of traditional travel, updated for 21st century needs.
78 rooms are exquisitely appointed with all the modern luxuries of a five-star hotel. From classic double rooms all the way to the Chalet Suite, accommodations are sophisticated yet intimate, with extravagant amenities sure to please all guests. Almost all rooms offer breathtaking views of the majestic Matterhorn and the towering mountains nearby.
The car-free resort town of Zermatt is a charming place to explore for shopping, dining, and nightlife – when not out on the mountains that is. This is, after all, Europe’s highest year-round skiing region, and an incredible spot for hiking, climbing, and mountain bike adventures. For something a little more relaxed, visit one of the many mountain restaurants and find a place on a sun terrace, breathing in the mountain air and taking in the spectacular views.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Zermatt into a greater Swiss or European holiday.

The sophisticated and elegant rooms of Grand Hotel Zermatterhof would be right at home in world’s leading urban cities were it not for the majestic sight of the Matterhorn rising to the west. 78 spacious rooms are exquisitely appointed with an easy elegance and modern style. Wide panorama windows look out onto the mountain landscape, with most rooms offering views of the iconic Matterhorn itself.

Grand Hotel Zermatterhof offers a variety of on-site activities to pamper and entertain guests.
