“Sweet and Simple”
Reviewed 4 January 2009

I stayed at the Grand Hotel du Parc in December of 2008 to attend the graduation ceremony of my brother at Les Roches. We had a cosy room overlooking the mountain side and it was picturesque. The room itself is very basic and very clean with wooden walls and a super clean bathroom. It was well heated and felt more like a lodge as opposed to a hotel. The staff is very friendly and all can speak english. The lobby area has a panoramic sitting area perfect for sunset views. The breakfast had many choices as well as an omlette station.
Id recommend this hotel to skiers as it has a laid back atmosphere and staff wont look down at you for walking in with wet boots and drenched umbrellas.

We stayed at Grand Hotel du Parc for 3 nigths in February. We got a room on the 4th (top) floor with a balcony facing south.

The staff speaks fluent english and are extremely helpful. We selected the restaurants for dinners based on hotel staff recommendations and all of them were excellent. They also sent a Swiss Army knive I forgot on the hotel room table to my home address.

The view from the hotel room and the balcony was breathtaking. The rooms are very large by European standards.

The hotel is 4 star and the only thing that is perhaps not supporting that is that the rooms are bit oldish. This is not to say that they are not clean and nice but rather that decoration migth be bit out of style.

The hotel has decent fitness room and good play area for kids. The relaxation/ sauna/ turkish steam room area is very nice and open from 5-7 pm every day.

The breakfast is excellent (something you find in top 4 star hotels in the US) and certainly better than in many other 4 star hotels in Europe (SAS Radissons and the likes).

The hotel is located 2-3 minute walk from downtown Montana and 15 minute walk from downtown Crans. For us the location was excellent; peaceful but still very close to the restaurants.

Reviewed 3 February 2008

We stayed for 5 nights Wed-Mon at the end of January 2008. I booked through the Crans-Montana tourist office and, it appeared that this was virtually the only hotel that would accept a short booking that included a Sunday night stay.

We travelled by train from Geneva Airport to Sierre, then by SMC bus to the Y-Coor bus stop at Montana. The hotel is a 5 minute walk up a hill from the bus stop. The journey took about 3 hours, all connections worked as they do in Switzerland and cost about £60 return.

The hotel is a 10 min. walk down and up 2 hills to reach the Signal Ski Station that connects to the whole of the Crans-Montana ski area. You can rent skis and a deposit next to the station very easily. The hotel will take you by their people-carrier in the morning & the evening to and from the station, but we quite liked the walk there.

We paid £120 per night for a double south-facing room. This included a very nice breakfast in the morning. Plenty of different breakfast foods, a very nice spread indeed. The views from both our room and the breakfast room are stunning.

Our room was spacious, clean and well lighted.

The staff are bi-lingual, and very helpful & welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.

This hotel is rated as a 4*, however, I would rate it as a 3.75*. If you compare it with say a 4* Marriott, then there is a difference in quality. However, in saying that, I think that the 0.25* difference is covered by the stunning views and location.

There were a couple of niggles. First, the shower leaked as the bottom of the screen had a rubber piece missing. Second, the room temperature was set too high, and you couldn't regulate it in your room. We asked the hotel to turn the heat down, which they did, but we still ended up opening the windows at night.

Overall, it would appear from the amount of people in the hotel mid-week that this is a hotel geared towards short-ski breaks in the winter season. As it was the only one available for our stay, it makes it difficult to compare with what else was on offer.

If you want a nice place to stay, do-it-yourself ski-break, easy to book and don't mind the extra cost, then it fitted the bill. For a week holiday, I'd probably have a lot more choice, and therefore stay elsewhere.
