This place is in a very central location just off the main drag, so is it's handy for shops, restaurants and skiing at Brevant. However, if you have a room at the front of the building (especially street level) - it can be noisy with people going past late at night. Also, can be equally noisy early in the morning as deliveries to the adjacent supermarket take place sometimes with enormous trucks going past. So, best to have earplugs if you're not a very sound sleeper.
Bedroom was functional and not too small. Bathroom lots of hot water, but needs total refurb to bring it up to a reasonable standard.
(I think this could be happening this summer, I've been told !)
Making up for the tired, warn out chalet - the Chalet girls (Meg & Tess) made the stay extremely enjoyable, with great food, and always friendly and very helpful.
Ski & boot room - very rustic but better if it had boot heaters....
Mini bus service to the ski areas - brilliant
