A popular choice with Inghams guests, the Hotel Butterfly offers a good standard of accommodation and cuisine, a friendly atmosphere and enjoys a quiet yet central location with quick access to the skiing.

Warm and welcoming 

The hotel is furnished in a modern alpine style, warm fabrics and old wood gives the hotel a rustic alpine feel. There is an attractive dining room where you can enjoy an ample breakfast buffet and a four course evening meal. A charming piano bar and lounge is an ideal spot to meet friends and family for a drink after a day on the slopes.

Central location

Welcoming and cosy, the Hotel Butterfly sits just behind the main street at the north end of Zermatt. It doesn't get much more convenient, with the train station and Gornergrat railway just around the corner. Less than a three-minute walk to the nearest bus stop means it's also easy to get to the Sunnegga and Klein Matterhorn lifts.

Soothing sauna and steam room

After a day of exploring Zermatt, make use of the spa area which features a Finnish sauna, an infra-red cabin and a steam bath room which is free to use - it is a great way to relax after a day on the slopes.

Complimentary daily afternoon tea and cake


Even without its iconic Matterhorn, Zermatt would surely be one of the world’s top ski resorts. It has an excellent ski area at high-altitude, and the breath taking views of Europe’s most famous peak add an unbeatable and unique crowning glory. The village is car-free apart from electric cars and horse-drawn carriages. Just off the bustling Bahnhofstrasse you'll find quaint little streets, elegant boutiques, cosy bars and mouth-watering chocolate shops.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Zermatt

With direct access to the slopes in either direction from the village centre - you'll be on the mountain in no time! Travel via cable car, funicular or the famous Gornergrat mountain railway, which takes you on a spectacular ride up to 3089 metres, where you'll have the best views of the Gorner glacier. To reach the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, take the final stage of the 3S Gondola to Europe's highest mountain station at Klein Matterhorn 3883 metres. From the top, you can choose to ski over to Zermatt’s Italian neighbour, Cervinia, for the day on the International lift pass. If you're up for a challenge take on the Matterhorn Ski Safari - attempt to cover 10,000 – 12,000 metres of altitude without skiing the same slope or taking the same lift twice.

The new Matterhorn Alpine Crossing, opening in 2023, completes the continuous cable car link between Switzerland and Italy making it possible for non-skiers to travel between the two countries, as well as skiers in the winter.
