Honestly, I did not have high expectations from a 3 star hotel, so i ve reached the place end of April, on my first attempt to do a fasting diet.
In Reception the feeling changed, as the Reception desk made me The Best price i could get for a single person for two nights, breakfast included.The hotel is very cozy,nicely decorated Reception, a lounge with a biliard desk, the room was huge, very quiet, with a spectacular view over the Bernoise Alps and also their garden, so for me was the perfect place to fast.During day i could Take loooong walks în The Forest, Lake,On the golf course, which îs opened to the public,or on Moubra lake that lies just close to the hotel-this was the Main reason why i ve prefered this hotel, as în April the Bisses (Bisse du Ro, and Bisse du Tsittorret) are closed, due to snow, while the nights were quiet, and I could enjoy every minute of my short trip.I did not reach Cry D er, nor the Glacier, as în April there îs no Explorer Card that offers these activities for free. The Explorer Card offerts, you can get from the Official site of Crans Montana (yes, they have a site with all activities that take place each day, web cams, restaurants, hotels, weather, and so many important informations).
Second nice surprise :The personal. On my second Last night în The hotel, i ve decided to eat, so I ve asked the Personal whether i need a reservation. Their answer was simple:"Madam, you just come în The restaurant, chose a table, and eat",which i did, and I remember perfectly what I ve ate, after 2 and a half days of starving:i had Salmon Tartar, and a huge portion of Salmon tagliatelle.
Breakfast was fair, their breakfast room was a bit oldish, still i didn t mind, i ve started to Love old buildings, I live in Kandahar:think! Smile smile smile
I ll post some of my Photos during my small vacation, I did not take any of the room, just the surroundings. This hotel exceeded my expectations, for me it was a nice surprise. After my escape i ve drove HOME, thing is I really miss Kandahar, the view over the Mountains and the concert of Birds at 5 o clock, made me realize that the moment you ve stopped running is the moment you ve arrived.

This is a good wholesome place to stay and the set up is good. Came here with my teenage son for some skiing and it worked for us. The room we shared was quite basic but for what we needed and the cost I feel it was fair. The hotel has a nice feel. Drinks and food fairly priced - we had a pre dinner drink most evenings and enjoyed the pool table. Dinner was good excellent fondue and helpful team. Front of house also very good and helpful. Lovely Portuguese gentleman who was friendly, welcoming and good at keeping us topped up.
Dominic who takes care of the mini bus for guests is great and flexible. We found that if you’re skiing you may not want to stay in the town centre as lots of walking up to the gondola and so Dominic taking you to the next gondola away from town in his transport is enormously helpful.
The hotel is a pleasant stroll up to town on foot say 10 minutes. Breakfast is good and plentiful in a light room with lovely views. Almost all the staff are delightful but going straight to a table at breakfast in the absence of someone being there to greet us and show us where to sit seemed to wind them up.

We recently stayed here with our two children (18 and 20) as part of our summer break. The hotel was exactly as expected and with its charming character it was a very special place to stay, in a lovely location.
What always makes the difference is the staff and the level of friendly service could not be faulted. We were greeted with a warm welcome and they managed to rustle up some food for us when they were just about to close the kitchen.
There were maybe a few negatives I could flag but given that the hotel is a three star we felt it was more than adequate for the rating and the price.
Crans-Montana offers lots of bars and restaurants and do make sure you head up the mountain (especially to see the glacier). When we stayed the tourism department provided us with vouchers for free travel on the lifts/gondolas and also 100 CHF to use at local restaurants, which made a huge difference.

There is simply no other hotel in the area that caters to family and makes a guest feel as welcome as Hôtel La Prairie.

The hotel provides an all-in-one experience and everything a family with kids of all ages can enjoy with billards, baby foot, darts, a reading area, office space, and an expansive lobby and downstairs area that allows kids and parents to have their own space. The hotel is a quick 10 minute walk into town and the hotel's ski shuttle caps it all off. If you are looking for a fabulous place to stay, this is it!

We had a very pleasant stay at La Prairie. We slept very well, the breakfast was excellent, and the staff very friendly at any time of the day. As we had two rooms we were able to see that some of the rooms have been renovated, so we assume that the hotel is working on it. To get to the ski lifts and back is not recommendable by public transport.

We booked in for three nights whilst on a trip through the region.
The staff were very welcoming and friendly. the room itself on the whole was ok, quite dated though esp the wardrobe etc seemed to be yellowing with age.
We had paid for a mountain view, and we did get one but it was not the panoramic view you might expect - the room we had was low and kind of to the side of the building, so the view was partially obscured by the rest of the building, a pleasant view none the less.
Main issue for us was the noise, first night we had what we thought was kitchen noise as we were right above the kitchen, asked for a different room to be told there was no other rooms and not something any one has complained about before (I can't believe that given our experience), to be fair that night it did stop after nine ish. The next night, we had what we think were the neighbouring rooms occupants talking very loudly til about 1 am and banging around, the room/building's walls must have been very thin as it sounded like they were in the same room as us. Next day decided to cut loose and find somewhere further on our route as I had a long day of driving coming up and didn't want a repeat of the night before. In fairness they did refund us partially for the final night as we checked out on the evening.

Very nice hotel in a quiet area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location is a bit out of the way for public transport, but the hotel offers individual transport to Crans Montana. Nice large room in a family atmosphere. I am happy to book the hotel again at any time.

We travelled by car to Montana for four nights (walking, cycling and watching golf). The hotel was perfect for us with very friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and public areas. The breakfast was excellent and we ate dinner in the restaurant once which was delicious. A complementary bus is provided to get up to the village (the walk up is very steep) during the day.
