I stayed here with my boyfriend from 30/12/12 - 6/01/13 on a ski package with Neilson. Check-in was very quick and efficient, and our room was clean and tidy. There was no hairdryer in the room which would have been nice. The TV was small and in the corner, and only showed Spanish and French channels - not a problem as we anticipated spending more time in the bar. The room was kept really warm, and we had access to a balcony for some fresh air. There was plenty of hot water at all times, and we had our room cleaned and towels changed every day. As some other reviewers have noted, the walls are quite thin but as we were up early to ski everyday and all the other guests were respectful and quiet in the corridors, we didn't see this as a problem.
Dinner was served between 7.30 and 9.30 and consisted of three courses with three choices for each course. The food wasn't amazing quality, but there was a lot of choice, and the gala dinner prepared for us on New Years Eve was fantastic quality - and there was lots of it. Drinks in the bar were reasonable as well - I had a very (!) large glass of Baileys which cost 4.50. Breakfast was served over three hours, and there were muffins and biscuits that you could take away for a little snack on the slopes.
It is located about a 15 minute uphill walk from the gondola to the pistes, which was a bit of a hassle - but at least it was downhill on the way back! Overall, the hotel was good for a week stay if you are spending most of your time skiing as the staff are friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and the food filling and good.
