One of the best 25/02/2014
Zermatt is in a valley surrounded by the most spectacular scenery. The transfer to resort takes around 3.5 hours from Geneva airport as the only way in is via the train from Tasch. All transport in the town is by electric taxi or bus. This is a real community where people live and work, not just a ski resort, so there is a bustling main street with shops, hotels, restuarants and bars. The Matterhorn museum is worth a visit if you are interested in mountaineering. Probably the best resort in the Alps we have been to for mountain restuarants; there are some self service ones at the top of the Sunegga lift and at Trockensteg, in my opinion the best ones to go to are the smaller ones. I would recommend the Adler at Findeln, amazing views and very tasty barbecued chicken. There is a large ski area, not really suited to beginners, with lots of long red runs and roads through the trees. The runs are pisted every day but can get full of moguls if you are a motorway skier. There are challenging yellow runs for the more adventurous skier. It can be very cold and windy at the top of the glacier. Al in all this resort offers everything you need and the views of the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa are stunning!

What a fab resort 21/11/2012
Zermatt is very picturesque, no high-rise buildings just typical chocolate box chalets and grand hotels. Oozes Swiss charm, the restaurants are fantastic — you'd expect just high end restaurants where you're afraid to order anything in case you get financially stung, but that's just not the case. The Brown Cow is a pub offering affordable food, there's Burger King if you run out of Swiss Francs and smaller less formal Swiss cafe-style restaurants where you can have croute fromage and fondue etc, at an affordable price. It's a big town with loads if choice for bars and clubs. On the ski front, motorway skiing down into Cervinia, gentle slopes on the glacier and more challenging skiing on the route home from the glacier. All day you get amazing views of the Matterhorn. With skiing and walking around town it's a place just to cruise around... if you haven't gone then go :-)

Review 16/01/2009
An absolutely amazing resort, one of the prettiest Alpine towns we have visited, with excellent skiing. We stayed at Chalet Sunna which was very nice although the food could have been more plentiful. The transfer time of about 3 hours is acceptable for the end result! The snow while we were there was amazing, and all the pistes were immaculately groomed. I think that the gradings seemed a little on the easy side, a lot of the blacks should have been red, and reds blue etc so don’t be put off by the piste maps. If you do go take lunch up the hill, as the restaurants can be quite expensive. Despite this I think it is one place we definitely go back to!

Review 24/04/2008
Surprisingly not expensive after buying the lift pass -ouch! Beers are around £2.50 for 500ml. 3 course dinners for 30 Swiss Francs or 2 courses 19 Swiss Francs in Potter's, a British pub which shows British sport via satalite. Coop and Migros have normal prices for self catering food. Mountain eating prices are even cheaper than rip-off British motorway restaurants! The Chalet Etoile on the Italian side of the mountains is wonderful for quality and cost - 19 Euros for lasagne, even cheaper beers. They accept Swiss Francs as well as euros. Use the lockers for boots and skis overnight at any of the lift stations - only 2 Swiss Francs for skis and the same for boots. You can then go shopping or go home in normal shoes. All the runs back into town are on snow covered narrow roads/tracks so not suitable for beginners. Swiss VAT is 7%, so shopping can be cheaper than prices at home. Smoking is still allowed in pubs and restaurants. You may want to take your own gin or whisky. Watch out for the acclaimed electric taxis - we called them stealth taxis as they silently push you off the edge of the road when they roll past.

Review 10/03/2008
For a romantic lunch with an uninterrupted view of the Matterhorn, check out Chez Vrony on the Sunnegga side, but be prepared to pay.

If you're looking for a good late night, check out the Schneewitchen below the Paperla pub just over the river in town.
