The Belvedere was quaint, old fashioned and absolutely charming and ALL the staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and professional in how they carried out their duties. There was plenty of choice of food for both breakfast and evening meal, and the fact that you could revisit the buffet as many times as you wanted and mix 'n' match meant that you always got to eat what was right for you. Our room was huge compared to most chalets and hotels we have stayed in previously. Well worth paying that tiny bit more for a south facing aspect. The en suite was clean and modern. The boot room was great, with heated spikes, but would recommend paying for a locker in town to save having to carry skis, etc. up and down the hill.
The only improvements we'd like to see would be tea/coffee making facilities in our room and perhaps tea and cake around 4pm as with many other places we've stayed. We were furnished with a packed breakfast/lunch on departure which was great, but we'd have given anything for a hot cup of tea or coffee as well at that time in the morning!
