“Very comfortable and friendly hotel but watch for the half board dinner menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

I stayed at the hotel as part of an Inghams ski holiday which was on a half board arrangement. The hotel has comfortable rooms and very friendly staff who all spoke enough English, which together with my limited French, made for reasonable communication. My only problem was the menu provided for a half board booking. There are no options on the menu so if there's something you don't particularly like, you're a bit stuck. You also have to be prepared for a traditional Swiss menu (well the hotel is in Switzerland). So three of the main courses involve either eating bread and cheese or potatoes and cheese in the form of fondues or raclettes. A couple of the sweets were also ruined by adding large amounts of alcohol (one of which we noticed was offered to a child!). So a bit of a mixed experience on the eating front but, as mentioned earlier, a friendly and very comfortable hotel.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

Have just returned from a weeks stay at the Olympic on an Inghams ski holiday. Nothing negative to say! The room was clean and spacious with a balcony. The staff were friendly and were helpful with things like bus timetables etc. The breakfast buffet was extensive and kept topped up. The evening meals were delicious and if you didn't like the main course the chef prepared a tasty alternative. We had no problems with noise from the basement bar. The hotel has a great position being near to the ski hire shop, the main lift and the casino. Crans Montana proved to be a super place to stay and we would definitely choose the Olympic Hotel again.

Very reasonably priced for Crans-Montana, with large, comfortable and clean rooms. Location was also perfect as it's a short walk from the ski lift, and room came with a balcony with two chairs and a low table overlooking the picturesque town (was lovely to bundle up and sit outside with a bottle of wine, watching the snow fall). The only curious thing was there wasn't an electric hotpot in the room - which would have come in handy for the cold winter nights!

As an added bonus, hotel guests get a 10% discount at the hotel restaurant and bar, as well as at one of the restaurants on the slopes. Food at the hotel restaurant (Le Mayen) was excellent and less overwhelmingly expensive compared to other restaurants in Crans-Montana, with excellent service from the dinner staff. Breakfast staff though were a lot less present and attentive and a rather surly bunch, with the more popular breakfast buffet items (eggs, cold cuts) often running out by 8am and not being topped up.

Overall though, 10/10 would stay again.

We booked for one night and could have stayed longer. From the traditional décor of the entrance area we had expected a typical Swiss bedroom, but instead we opened the door onto a very modern, very comfortable room. The sound and heat insulation was excellent, so that even though we had a room which faced the road we couldn't hear the traffic at all and we never felt cold, which is not always the case in Switzerland. The bathroom in particular looked newly-fitted, with a shower head that could be adjusted to several settings and good water pressure.

We decided to eat in the restaurant, which had a pretty typical Swiss menu. The prices were not too bad, given the country, and because we were staying in the hotel we got a 10% discount
on all the food and drink we ordered. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted good.

The hotel is right in the middle of Crans Montana so shops, bars etc. are on the doorstep. There is free wifi, and the TVs offer many channels, including BBC, ITV etc. We will definitely keep this place in mind for the next tie we want a short break.

This hotel has everything I expect from a hotel to stay one (or two) night in a route: very clean, good price, well located and a friendly and helpful staff. Our room had a very new decoration and the bed was very confortable. The bathroom was immaculate. Very nice.

We used to stay there for many ski weekends and have always liked it, even before the renovation. It has now been renovated and has lovely rooms. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The dining and bar area has a nice traditional Swiss look and feel to it as does the food. It is reasonable priced and convenient to one of the main ski lifts for the whole resort. The hotel looks pretty in the summer too with all the flower boxes full of colourful flowers, all very Swiss.

Instead of booking ahead, we showed up at the door and booked directly, so we paid an extra 20 Swiss Franks. Dinner is fantastic, the breakfast is skimpy. private parking. overall, very pleased. A friendly family place, felt welcomed. Centrally located, easy to walk to all places. The room is modern, recently updated.
