“Not what we expected for a top end hotel”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

We were recommended this hotel as a great family hotel and took our 2 children (2 and 4). We have been to a few international 5 star family hotels and this is not a five star hotel, possibly 4 if you stretch it. Hotel was apparently recently refurbished but we felt the rooms were old and only a very light renovation must have been done. The bathroom and the corridor look like they are at least 10 years old

Pros
Very good food for dinner
Close to the lift
Very child friendly (Children run around everywhere)

Cons
The service in the reception or the bar was very slow and uncoordinated.
Rooms small and not very high standard
The children’s play room was very messy and no one of the staff ever cleaned it or had any oversight of it.
Lunch was very limited

Reviewed 4 November 2012

This must have been my sixth visit and there are some pretty good reasons we keep on returning. First of all it is an excellent area for skiing. Both downhill and cross country. Unfortunately there is no illuminated track near by and you would have to go by car for a few kilometers if you want to ski after dark. However, there are better things to do after nightfall. You could enjoy the spa, relax in cosy winter garden and then there is dinner. The food just seems to get better every time. The service was once again excellent just as the wines recommended. The kids are well taken care of by different activities.Thera are a few flaws that prevents me from giving it the highest ranking. The biggest one being the breakfast which average. More organic choices and maybe two separated buffets would make it more enjoyable. The other flaw is that the place seems to be a little under staffed when fully booked. Despite this small flaws I can highly recommend a visit to Storhogna any period of the year.

This is a perfect place to combine good skiing, wonderful spa-treatments and delicious food. The rooms are clean and very childfriendly with an own dvd next to the childbed. The food in the restaurant is delicious with a long winelist. The skiing is just a couple of meters away, the hotel has a nice swimingpool, but far too cold. And the kids would also have liked to have a kids club.
