Just spent a week skiing and stayed with a large group of family and friends at the Dragon. It's well located near ski hire, lifts, ski school and it's a bar, so what more could one need. The Inghams team were excellent and the boys and girls running the Chalet side made our stay a pleasure. Anna particularly was brilliant... More

Very good skiing, resort renowned for being closed due to high winds. The Dragon is in a perfect position - but so old and dirty. 1. Mould and mildew behind bedside cabinets. 2. Horrendous mould in bathroom. 3. Room 8, how Inghams get away with selling this as a double room I'll never know. Only enough room for 1 person.... More

Cervinia is one of the most stunning locations for skiing, a great place for beginners and intermediates alike. Get the international pass because skiing into Switzerland and exploring the Matterhorn on skis will be something I will remember forever. The Dragon Hotel is in an incredible location just metres from the first ski lift. However it is seriously lacking in... More

Thank you Eps89, which seems to echo some of the issues raised by the previous reviewer, LcpUK. As the Chalet Hotel Dragon is a licensed property, we cannot permit guests to bring their own alcoholic beverages on to the premises for consumption, as the resort team endeavoured to explain. We regret if this caused any disappointment and marred your holiday... More

Cervinia is a fantastic resort in terms of skiing, and the scenery is beautiful. We loved the fact you could get to Zermatt too for even more skiing options. It's just a shame that we were let down by Inghams and the hotel. Inghams were poor, and the in-resort rep was quite unhelpful. We had friends who hadn't skiied before... More

Albeit not the most modern Chalet Hotel, it does have some degree of Austrian charm, and most guests do enjoy taking advantage of the property's popular après bar.

Very disappointing hotel. So much potential with perfect location, but needs some proper management. An ideal outside bar area which is not used as a bar, with broken heaters and chairs knocked over. The pub is British themed, serving largely British customers, so getting it completely wrong as I don't think anybody goes to Italy to experience a British pub.... More

The best thing about the Dragon is its location. We knew it was noisy from reading reviews,we were told the music being played on a speaker outside would stop at 11pm. Not always the case.
