“Very nice restaurant, spa and service!”
Reviewed 21 February 2011

Many things seemed to have changed when I compare with a review from 2009! The rooms have hairdryers, no lack of towels, we got new soaps etc. A very nice spa with 2 sorts of sauna, a bubble pool and comfortable chairs where you could relax. Every dinner started with a delicious buffet with antipasti and then there were several choices for first and second courses. The only complaints were that the beds are a little bit hard and you have to be aware that the hotel is located outside Champoluc but it is only about a 10 minutes walk to town. The advantage is that it is very quiet in the night. The staff drives you every morning to the ski lift and when you call in the afternoon they turned up after a few minutes to pick you up and drive you back to the hotel! A very nice bar with an open fire at the hotel.

Reviewed 25 March 2009

The first impressions were really good. Hotel looks really good and new, rooms are quite small (italian standard I think) but very clean and each room as their own balcony, the spa with hamam and jaccuzzi is really nice and the owner was nice. There is a free garage for parking. The location is beautiful with a nice view but a bit more off than you get the impression of from the website. It is located outside Champoluc (it takes 10-20 minutes to walk into Champoluc either through a walkway through the forrest, which took longer due to the amount of wet snow there, or along a dark road). We had a rental car but sometimes wanted to enjoy good wine so did not take the car. There is a shuttle bus one hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon to the ski lifts, which we did not use.

However, soon the lack of many small things (each one of them could have been acceptable if it had been the only flaw) made our stay a less good one. Most of these things should be possible to fix quite easily, so this hotel definitely has potential: There is no real hairdryer even to borrow (only the worst possible kind they have in some hotels, which takes an hour for you hair to dry), there was no iron or ironing board to borrow, we did not receive any more soap or schampoo after the first day when it was finished (we stayed for more than a week), there were almost never any towels in the spa (when asked for some, we were told to get our towels from the room...), towels did not dry in our room due to some problems with heating in our bathroom, you could not get anything at all (no sandwiches, snacks) to eat after you got back from skiing, you were not allowed to choose a table in the restaurant for breakfast even though most of the tables were free, and there were no chairs on the room balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun and the nice view. It is also very noisy: The wooden floors in the corridors are really nice, but without some kind of mats, we heard every single person in our corridor and above us going to and from their rooms (we are not early birds and are not the first ones in the slopes in the mornings...) We also heard chairs being moved from the restaurant two floors below us. The service we received was really bad. You get the impression that some of the employees really did not want to do what they were there for (but rather go skiing themselves.) You felt you were bothering them by asking for something. On our last day, we slept in and arrived at breakfast at 09.40 am (breakfast is supposed to be served until 10 am) and found that the breakfast buffet had been completely removed and when we asked, the waiter asked us what time it was. When we told him he got some of the food for us but was apparently annoyed.

We also tried out the hotel restaurant one night, and event though the price was ok, we were not very impressed. There are several resataurants in the area that can offer considerably better food, service and ambience.
