“Great hotel, lovely staff and super food”
Reviewed 14 January 2010

Well located hotel, just between Crans & Montana ( 5min walk from both centers).
Lovely modern & design rooms.
Great food prepared by a Chef which will satisfy your personal taste if needed.
Staff that will make you feel like being at home.
Apres-ski with a modern spa: small pool with streams, outside (in the snow) heated jacuzzi, 2 hammams, 1 sauna, fitness. Also massages are available with extra cost.
No problem If you travel with kids (the owner has also 2 small kids).
Worth every penny !

Reviewed 7 July 2009

We searched a hotel for a family celebration in Crans Montana and the hotel/rooms were shown to us in December. They showed us a very pretty room with a nice view over the valley for a reasonable price. We booked then three rooms for our family.
After arrival we had to recognice that none of our family was placed in a room with the quality of the one that was shown to us. Two of them were not in the upper floors so the view was very limited (except the view on the rooftop of the restaurant/building in front of the hotel). The third room was upstairs but not nearly of the quality from the room that was shown to us before.
Breakfast was o.k. when you are expecting not to much --> the service during breakfast was poor (one uniterested employee).
Fitness area and the small swimmingpool are very nice and in good condition.
Overall assessment: Too much money for too less quality compared to other hotels--> there are better places to stay in Crans Montana!!

Reviewed 28 February 2009

My wife and I go skiing every year 3/4 times with Inghams. We have just arrived home after a week at the Art de Vivre hotel.
Apart from the gym facilities I can not undertsand how this hotel is a four * . The room was very poorly decorated , most of the staff are very unpleasant , especially the receptionist ( brown long haired ) & the waitor ( brown dark hair) they are both very unprofessional .
As for the food I can honestly say its the worst food we have ever had at a hotel. Its cooked to a very poor standard .
We really enjoyed Crans Montana its a really nice town , but this hotel put a big cloud over our holiday.
Every morning my wife and I where woken by screaming children at 6.00am we mentioned it to the manager & receptionist who both said they could not do anything.I appreciated the hotel was fully booked so we couldn't move rooms but surely they could have told the family to show some consideration.
I must mention the boot room , it is really poor again for a four star hotel.
We will write a letter to our holiday agent (Inghams) asking why they promote this hotel in there brochure.
