We stayed at Hotel de la Foret in February 2022. There were four of us (2 adults and 2 children) in a family room at the back of the hotel (so no balcony). There was plenty of space for four, with 4 single beds (two pushed together). Wi-Fi (vital for teens) was good. Always lots of hot-water. Found the hotel quiet at night. Breakfast was excellent every morning, with cereals, bread/toast, teas/coffees/hot choc, pastries, fruit, ham/cheese, yoghurt. Plenty to stoke yourself up with for the day. The hotel is well located, about a 3 minute walk to the Etoile bus stop, from where you can catch the free buses in either direction. We went to Barzettes and started our day on the Violettes lift most mornings. The buses always arrive exactly on time! In the evenings we normally took the bus into town to a restaurant then walked back (about 15 mins downhill). The staff were friendly, but the only negative was our experience of eating in the restaurant. We ate there twice. The first night it took 40 minutes from ordering to receiving our food. Just about acceptable. The second time it took over an hour, maybe 1h10m. Communication was terrible and there was no apology or offer of compensation. Ultimately after I pointed out that this was appalling service, they took some money off the bill. I am aware they were short-staffed due to Covid, but we were the first in the restaurant and others arrived, ordered and left before we even received our food. That aside, we enjoyed our stay and I would recommend the Hotel de la Foret for families or as a budget location in Crans Montana.

Dated, remote, no view. If you are assigned a room at the rear of the hotel do not expect a view and if i had spent time in prison i would imagine room 318 is what it would be like. There is no restaurant in the evening and no atmosphere. The decor is pre 70s at best and the lift is a health hazard so take the stairs if your stupid enough to stay here. Thankfully, I wont he here again.

I really appreciated the staff and the structure. The hotel is very near of the center Crans Montana. You can reach the center by 2 shuttle stop or by car. I had a small problem in the beginning of the reservation but the hotel manager solved straight and fast. The food is very good. The wine list is not very large but acceptable. The cleaning is perfect. The breakfast international very good. To comeback soon. Thanks everyone for two days unforgettable. Appreciated all of you. Best.

Hotel de la Foret is located at the far end of the Montana part of Crans Montana, on the main road with an exceptional view over the Rhone Valley and Alpine ranges. It has parking space up to a limit (hard to have a space when the hotel is fully booked). It is a ten minute walk to the skilifts and cable cars taking you to the 3000m Plaine Morte. The centre of Montana is 15 minutes away, and a walk to the funiculaire to Sierre takes 7 minutes (the funiculaire to Sierre takes 12 minutes, it is an amazing ride!). Rooms at de la Foret are on the tiny side and bathrooms give away its 1970s origin. Service is very helpful and friendly and there is a generous breakfast buffet. In terms of price: excellent value for money!
