Positives - good sized room twin beds and clean bedding, balcony facing the mountain, excellent bathroom facilities, with hot shower and bath, AMAZING food and wine served, excellent breakfast, AMAZING and friendly staff and hotel manager. Great location, 3 min walk to gondola and funicular that take you up the mountain, and 2 min walk from bus stop that takes you in town (town is 5 min on the bus).
Negatives: No dry room, just a ski room which was a bit cramped when needing to put your boots on. Small communal area.
There is a split dinner service, which I thought I wasn't going to enjoy but I did, as it gave us the chance to go and explore the town a bit more rather than just staying in the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps, but as with all properties, it is the location that really counts! And that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. ... more less
