This hotel is a very traditional Swiss hotel, and we had a nice time there, but I am extremely disappointed by the poor hygiene standards of their pool and spa. It is old and dirty... You can see spider webs, dust, grease spots, dark spots all around the seans in the sauna and the hammam. I hope they do something... More

No hotel transfers from the funicular.... For such a large hotel in a competitive market it is something I have come to expect. As we are here for a celebration we booked a small room as we will be skiing and going out and using the room for the minimum. However expected it to be a cosy jwell designed room...... More

Now on my third visit at Hotel Etrier, this is my first time in one of the unrenovated rooms. This time I am alone and only staying for one night, which is why I chose the cheaper room. While perfectly ok, it does feel dated and much less welcoming than the modern ones. The hotel staff is as nice as... More

A winter wonderland amidst the playground of the Alps - great rooms, atmosphere, steam room and pool - close to the slopes, authentic with amenities to suit both families and couples. Hearty food catering to all tastes.

That was my 3rd time in this nice hotel in Crans Montana. Still the same atmosphere, same waiters, same curtains and furniture (the last 5 years). Needs renovation. Urgently. Very expensive for non Swiss travelers. Not at all value for money. The restaurant was also quite expensive. Two persons with no wine, 130 euro for the standard menu! But, the... More

I was a bit surprised by the quotes I got thinking they were really good. I should have been wary. Although the public areas ( restaurant, lobby, swimming pool, etc.) are really nice, the rooms ( we had 2 ) were really bare and run down ( although on the web-site you can see a really nice one...where is it...

The hotel has been renovated not long ago and is really nice . Friendly welcome, comfortable hotel , nice rooms (cosy and impeccable ), good service. Breafast was great. The only sad thing is that the Spa is closed off season. I paid CHF 110.- for a single room last week ie perfect price/quality ratio.

This nicely decorated hotel is situated on one of the main streets in Crans. If you have a room with a view and balcony it must be quite spectacular, like in many places in this holiday mountain resort of Crans-Montana.
