it never ceases to amaze me how negative some of the comments about this hotel are. This was our third visit and our best experience yet. One of my friends had had a bad experience the previous year when he had to stay overnight in hospital with a fractured rib, following a fall whilst ski-ing. The manager remembered this and gave him an extremely warm welcome. We were subsequently presented with a free carafe of wine with all our evening meals- a very nice gesture! In fact, all the staff were very friendly and efficient, especially the charming, ever-smiling Eleanora who flitted between reception, bar and dining room with consummate ease and spoke superb English.
Our 4th floor room had superb views of the mountain. OK, perhaps the bathroom facilities are somewhat basic, but this really does not detract from the holiday in our view and the bedroom was kept clean and warm.
We found the food quality to be even better than previous years. I really can't believe that some people are complaining about quick service!! Salad items were plentiful, and there are three further courses but beware of people hoarding the copious dessert items at the start of the meal. One morning, we overslept beyond the breakfast serving time, but the staff were happy to allow us to have a late breakfast.
The ski-ing in the area is excellent, although the pistes were closed on our last day, due to the heaviest local snowfall for 28 years, so we went for a walk in the glorious local countryside. The hotel is perfectly positioned, away from the main road in a pretty part of the village. The quaint ski-train stops right outside and it is just 5 minutes' ride away from the ski-lift. It is possible to ski back to the village and the hotel is just a short walk from the end of the run.
We would definitely return again.
