Sadly, we are all too aware how expensive Switzerland has become during the current financial situation, and when it Crans for the Omega European Masters, everything is even more expensive.
How a double room for 320 CHF per night can be justified is anyone's guess, but my gripe is the hidden nature of an expense (which appears to happen at other hotels here too).
My work had arranged a double room for me, but with a single occupancy rate: hence 250CHF. My wife joined me for the week.
It was only on checking out that I was presented with a 70CHF per day charge for her staying, and this amounted to around a £340 charge dropped on me for a six nights stay.
The double room amounted to two beds pushed together with a gap in the middle which inevitably you slip down during the night.
The extra breakfast cannot justify an extra 70CHF per night fee.
Saying to the curt and dismissive lady at the desk that surely 20CHF extra would be acceptable, she said she wouldn't accommodate a dog for that money!
The following night spent at a Travelodge in Maidstone for £25 was much better!! Nicer bed, better pillows, cleaner room, more courteous staff... just not the views of the mountains.
The Grand Hotel du Parc is not unpleasant, but there's no way it's value for money. Be warned about hidden charges that should've been outlined on arrival.
