                                                                                                      I stayed here for a week in March 2015 with my daughter and her fiance. It was my daughter's 30th birthday and her fiance's 31st within a few days. The weather had promised to be very snowy but thankfully we had some really fine days. The apartment was so well located and for us, only being three people, it was huge. It had everything that we needed and was very quiet in spite of being just one street off the Bahnhofstrasse. Everything was very clean. The dishwasher broke down while we were there but a simple phone call to Adrian and he sent in someone to fix it on the same day. The very best thing is the location. Near Gornergrat, buses, and all the shops in the main street. Would definitely stay again if we choose Zermatt in the future. Zermatt is one of our very favourite ski resorts having such a good lift system and superlative pistes and plenty of entertainment, which is, of course, reflected in the price. Having no cars is also a great bonus.

Unfortunately the washing machine is no longer free, you have to buy a card for 50 CHF! Not great when you have two young children and have been away from home for a week before arriving! Contacted Mrs Santos the manager who was very friendly and offered the use of her machine - Thank you! Loads to see and do in Zermatt, beautiful walks, lakes, via ferrata etc, only negative is no outdoor (or indoor) public pool.
