The Hotel is genuinely ski in ski out and there are lifts close enough to the Hotel to get into the Paradiski area easily.
The rooms are adequate. I don't understand the wisdom of not having showers in the rooms and this is a definite downside.
There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms so maybe bring your own travel kettle.
The food is plentiful with a huge variety to cater for all tastes and dietary needs. Service is very good with Fabien efficiently running the show.
Eric the general manager is very good and sorted out the few problems we had when we found the staff on the Reception desk rude disdainful incompetent and unhelpful.
The ski room system is fabulous. There were always had staff to take your skis and boots boots from you at the end of the day and put them on boot warmers for the morning. In the morning your warn dry boots were brought out.
The bar is great with the bar manager Regis presiding over everything efficiently creating great ambiance.
There are no stairs in the Hotel - it is built on a slope. Try to get a room numbered 300 or 400 and something so you are not low down. Alternatively it is possible to use a lift rather than stop up and down the slopes.
The spa is OK but not really worth taking into account. The indoor pool is tiny, Jacuzzi takes 4 comfortably - six if you're thin. Its very busy and best to book.
Chambery airport is a bit of a zoo on busy Saturdays. Its facilities are poor and it gets very crowded. Consider Geneva as an option.
