You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental.

- "I have stayed at the Hotel Montpelier four times and every time it gets better and better. The friendly staff with a warm welcome who are so accommodating; the great facilities - the swimming pool are a godsend after a hard day's skiing and the central location and finally the excellent breakfasts." - Trip Advisor
- "This hotel is worth so much more than 3 stars. The rooms are immaculate, with fresh towels daily. The receptionists and restaurant staff are very helpful. We loved the fact that the man who had made us porridge one morning, had told his colleague because the next morning we were asked if we would like fresh porridge. They had obviously done a thorough handover - very impressed.One word of warning - the showers in the pool area can get really, really hot!" - Trip Advisor
- "Third stay at the Montpellier, just outside the main part of town situated in a quiet spot with lovely views of the mountains. Staff are very helpful and there is a good ski room facilities and a ski hire shop within the lower ground floor (advance booking recommended). Rooms are well apportioned and clean, bathrooms fair sized. Breakfast is good value and service throughout is very good. This hotel is very well priced for Verbier and with a free shuttle stop 2 mins from the door, very easy to get in the centre of town. We walked everywhere when not carrying skis. Highly recommend this hotel for friendliness, value and position." - Trip Advisor
- "My husband and I just spent a wonderful week in Verbier and stayed at Hotel Montpelier. We could not have been happier. The hotel is in a quiet location, yet close to everything. We were in Verbier for a ski holiday and the hotel was able to accommodate all our needs. From the delicious breakfast that started our day, to the relaxing wellness area, the hotel was a perfect choice for us. But most importantly was the staff! Claudia and Hugo were so helpful and friendly, from making dinner reservations for us to mixing delicious Portuguese cocktails, we enjoyed their hospitality. We truly enjoyed our week at Hotel Montpelier and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel with traditional Swiss hospitality." - Trip Advisor
