I stayed at Gornerwald in March 2016, primarily for skiing and some hiking. The apartment is bright warm clean and very well equipped with a neat modern kitchen, large living area and two generous bedrooms. the dual aspect balcony is wonderful allowing exceptional views both up the valley to the Matterhorn and down the valley over Zermatt.
in just a few minutes you can walk to the main Klein Matterhorn lift which accesses a main ski area. There are hire maintenance and depot services there. In the evening there is the ever friendly Sparky's bar and restaurant or a few minutes further away the lively Papperla music bar.
The other lifts in town Gornergrat and Sunnega are a short pleasant walk away or you can use the frequent free bus service. There is a small convenience shop nearby though the main less expensive shopping is in the town centre.
The owner Ann is very friendly and attentive to guest needs including full information on the apartment and local amenities.
Local hikes are well signposted and though not all are open in winter it is easily possible for non skiers to hike from the apartment to meet others for lunch or apres ski, Blatten being a favourite of mine.
In all a spacious , convenient, high quality apartment with friendly management that I highly recommend.
Very nice flat, 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, big living room, well equipped kitchen and huge balcony. The house is calm and well located. Nice sight on the Matterhorn. Easy walking distance from telecabin (200 meters), our 3 kids managed the walk easily with all ski gear. You are also quickly in the center of Zermatt, and it is a short walk to bakery and grocery.
Ann the owner is very helpful, and it is was great to be welcomed with flowers and wine! The apartment was clean and bright. We will come back with pleasure. Thanks Ann!

It is a great spacious place. The place was clean and very easy to use e.g., all the information was easily available in folders thoughtfully put by the owner. The only points (though nothing major) one may consider is that the place is 10 mins walk from central town/ station and you have to climb one floor (worry only if you have lot of baggage)
Excellent apt, excellent quiet yet within 10 minute walk of central down-town location and very helpful and communicative owner.
