We recently stayed at the L'Aigle des Neiges in mind January. The hotel is in a wonderful location right in the centre of the town at the foot of the nursery slopes, carry enough speed and you can slide straight to the door of the boot room - 2 min walk to the nearest chair lift.
A warm welcome was received on arrival, all the staff we met through our stay were all friendly and accommodating.
The rooms were comfortable and functional, there is plenty of storage space - which is such a bonus in a ski resort. Our room was on the 1st floor overlooking the square and we can say that there was no noise disturbance from the hotel bar during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely.
We were on a half board package so ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant each night.
We found the restaurant staff were all very friendly and we enjoyed the varying menu for each night (the desert buffet is the best). We enjoyed the flexibility of eating at a time that suited us although we found that the restaurant lacked atmosphere due to this factor. The choice of food at breakfast was also good although it would have been nice to have been able to get hot waffles/crepes rather than cold.
The Spa within the hotel is a wonderful place to ease those aching muscles, we looked forward to a quick session at the end of each day and the facilities found were some of the best we have had in a ski resort.
The boot room guys really do look after you - we had all our own gear which they stowed away each nigh,They do a very good overnight service for anyone who would need one.
,as its at the foot of the slopes we could drop it all off before they closed and head on out for Apres Ski - from this hotel there are 4 après bars within a 2 min walk and its central for the remainder of the resort.
Service overall from the hotel was second to none, its seems to be a small team and they always greet you with a smile and acknowledgment.
There were only a couple of occasions we found it slipped - During dinner one evening due to a large group 40+ who had seated at the same time as us we never received the drinks we requested. There also seemed to be a confusion with the staff in the hotel bar over afternoon tea - we were advised by reception that afternoon tea would be laid out at the end of the bar and during set times we could help ourselves however over a 3 day period each time we asked at the bar where it was they didn't seem to know.
Minor things but with these it would have been a 10/10 for us.
We do look forward to returning though as we had an amazing time.
