This is another little gem of a hotel in Pila. It's location is perfect for both beginners and more advanced skiers/boarders as it is literally right next to the nursery slope and also just 100m or so to the main Chamole chairlift which will take you up to the top of the mountain. All abilities will be able to ski right to the back door at the end of the day.
The hotel itself is relatively small and has a nice cosy Alpine feel to it. The rooms are warm and comfortable and have good storage space, (we had a triple room and had more than enough space to hide away all our stuff, and we don't travel particularly lightly) There's a heated boot/ski room which leads directly, up a short flight of steps, onto the piste.
Breakfast is the usual buffet style affair but has a great spread of breads, cakes, cereals, cold meats etc. There's no hot stuff except boiled eggs which was fine with us.
Dinner starts with a huge buffet of antipasta and you are then served a further 2 courses of great local cuisine followed by a choice of pudding. It's not exactly Michelin star fine dining but its good hearty and wholesome food, well cooked and pleasantly served.
There isn't much to do in the evening, other than a quick drink in the bar. There is also a very cosy lounge with a log fire on the the first floor if you just want to sit and read or snooze.
There is free wi-fi, although coverage for this is only available in the reception/bar area.
All in all a really great value, comfortable, friendly hotel in a terrific location. Highly recommended.
