We reached the small village of La Sage after an hour or so with bus from the train station in Sion. The rain poured down from a fairly dark summer sky. After a few minutes walk from the bus stop we entered the hotel and felt immediately in love with the place. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere, not too big but not that small either, clean, everything in order with a lot of details from past times, an amazing library equipped with old furniture, drawings, photos and old windows with panoramic view of the valley and – as we discovered when the sky cleared up in the late afternoon – of the neighboring mountains. We were given a room on the second floor with view of the valley. Very nice. The room was of the same standard and with the same good-feeling as the rest of the hotel, with a particularly nice bath room and a relaxing balcony. Perfect. The dinner was excellent (three courses - delicate salat mixed, fine cuisine maine course and delicious exquisite dessert) . As was the breakfast. Yes, we fell in love with the place. Actually, the possibility of another stay at the hotel was frequently discussed on the hike up the pass towards Cabane de Moiry.

Brilliant food, great service, dinner was amazing considering that it was included in the price, normally you get basic food when it is all in one. Wine was fairly priced and tasty.
Rooms were very basic but comfortable.
I left my iphone cable in the previous hotel, and they arranged to have it put on the bus and collected it for me! Seemless service!

Three of us stayed here while doing the Haute Walkers' Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. La Sage is a pretty, traditional Swiss village and the hotel provides a memorable experience. We shared a room (one double bed plus a rather soft single bed) with a large en-suite bathroom and a balcony (just right for drying socks) with stunning mountain views. Other public rooms included a billiard-room and an old-fashioned reading room that made us feel we were back in the 19th century. Dinner (included in our room price) was exceptional and breakfast very acceptable.

We stayed at this lovely hotel on our Hute Route walking holiday, what a lovely hotel. Very friendly staff, welcoming, warm and hospitable. Lovely Turkish bath, great food and relaxation areas. Soft sheets and comfy beds, perfect!

Consistently disappointed by Swiss hotelling which so often lacks warmth and charm, I absolutely loved the Hôtel la Sage. This is what you imagine a hotel in Switzerland should be like. The building was built at the beginning of the 20th century, in the golden age of Swiss tourism. The dining room and the sitting room/reading room above it both have high ceilings and huge panoramic windows offering a superb view of the mountains and the Val d'Herens. There is much evidence of wood. The entire place feels romantic and cosy and a part of the landscape that surrounds it.

The owner is very friendly and will chat to you willingly in fluent French or English. She appears to have brought something of the sunshine of her native Mauritius with her.

Our room was cosy and comfortable, with an excellent bathroom that was decorated in splendid taste (rare). Only the rather cheap carpets undersell the establishment.

The food on offer is table d'hôte - ie, there is no choice. It was extremely good, but if you want choice, you will probably have to drive the 15 mins to Evolène. There was also an excellent and copious breakfast.

Expense-wise, the Hôtel la Sage is not cheap, but it is worth the money and I will definitely be returning. The place offers real charm which is surely what the traveller to Switzerland is looking for.

A gem of a hotel, with warm cozy rooms, a large spacious common area for dining, a salon for reading and board games, a steam room, ping pong table, fooze ball table, and magnificent views of the valley and surrounding area. The staff is friendly, warm and accommodating, and the chef is fantastic. I enjoyed exploring the hotel and its amenities, and felt completely relaxed and at ease.
