We stayed at this family run hotel for a five nights skiing.It was a short walk (5 minutes) to the ski lift and the charming main town. There are several ski rental shops by the lift which will store skis and boots for the duration of your stay or a season for a small charge.
The hotel is very friendly with all the staff keen to help. Our bedroom and the reception rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable with a roaring log fire in the bar and seating area.
The highlight of the hotel has to be the wonderfully eccentrentic and charming owner, Christine Allard. Both she and her husband run the hotel with great efficiency but the dinners are legendary! Christine chooses the menus and oversees the charming dining room looking after each guest individually. Being multilingual she makes sure that every nationality feels part of the evening. Most of the menu changes daily apart from the usual traditional dishes and the cost is not excessive given the quality of food and service. This, and Christine are definitely not to be missed!
Our room in the second floor overlooked the front towards the main town and the mountain backdrop. I don't understand the complaints made before about radiators-the room was perfectly heated but you could regulate the radiator and there is always the window!
Overall wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel-it is rated as a 3* but in our opinion was certainly a high 3*. It was exactly as promised, didn't try to be anything it wasn't and offered great service, great food and good fun. Couldn't have asked for more.
