“A very welcoming hotel - sunny and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2011

We stayed at the Hotel Bellalui for four days on a short skiing break. It is situated in a picturesque setting among the trees and between the villages of Crans and Montana. It takes about 5 minutes walk to either village. The hotel is one of the Historical Hotels of Switzerland and was a former sanitorium. It has been preserved in the style of the '50's with original furniture and light fittings I would think. The best rooms are south facingwith balconies that overlook the mountains. The views are spectacular. The rooms are furnished in a utilitarian rather than luxurious fashion but everything is very clean and the duvets are comfortable and of good quality. Breakfasts were good. The breads offered are amazing. We had croissants on the weekend with a good choice of the usual teas coffee and juice. The thing that makes this hotel stand out is the attitude of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was super friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a base for skiing - the sharp climb through the hotel gardens carrying skis is very good training for time on the slopes!
