“Fantastic base for an upmarket ski break”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Had never skied Madonna before and we fancied a change from the usual packaged chalet trip so when we saw this was in the Mr & Mrs Smith stable we jumped at it, taking the bed and breakfast option for seven nights.

Loved it from the moment we arrived - friendly staff, lovely Classic room at the back of the hotel with a side-room to hide your baggage, very comfortable beds (we didn't need to make any special selections from the pillow menu !) and gorgeous rain shower. The hotel will shuttle you to and from the Spinale ski-lift from their basement garage (next to the ski locker room) though the main ski buses run right past the hotel too (and its only a ten minute walk anyway). Lovely choice at breakfast (especially the cheese, and the cake) though Pasquale seemed disappointed that it took till day 5 before I took up his offer of cooked eggs !

First two nights we ate in the hotel 'bistrot' (we had no idea what we were going to pay, as it is generally for those on the half-board option so the menus don't have prices, and we decided not to ask !) and then on the third night we upgraded to chef Enrico's Michelin-starred Dolomieu in an adjoining room (reviewed separately). Confess that on our first night we assumed the quaint 'stube' room was the bistro, and that the more modern looking starched-cloth rig-out of the larger room was for the Michelin diners ! The food in the bistrot is not far short of the quality of the Dolomieu (unsurprisingly there is an element of crossover, especially on some of the ingredients) and we were extremely happy to accept smaller portions than others might expect, for the sheer quality. The pureed bacalao, duck with dried figs, poached egg with potato sauce and truffle oil were all worthy of the highest accolade. We had another couple of bistrot dinners before the week was out, and when we did eventually get to see that we were only paying €40 a head each for the four courses each night (the different between their B&B and half-board rates) we were more than pleasantly surprised.

The restaurant prides itself on local sourcing and I was particularly pleased to find some local beers in the bar (bottles from Ducato and Val Rendena breweries), and even temporarily took up smoking again when I found they had a smoking room adjoining the bar - seemingly more comfy seats and definitely superior piped music !

All in all, a wonderful week and we are quite surprised that both the hotel and the Dolemieu don't score higher on Tripadvisor - if there are that many better hotels and restaurants in Madonna then they must be very magical indeed.

Just returned from 10 nights with half board. We are already planning to return next year with a group of friends. We had a suite and classic room for our family of 3. Stylish, spacious, warm and clean. Wonderful service from great staff. Just genuinely nice people. Outstanding shuttle service to the slopes. Better than ski in ski out because you could arrive back at any point to the village and with one phone call, Danny would appear within minutes to take your skis and transport you back to the hotel. Possible to walk to the cable car but never necessary as personal transfer was always there. The meals were outstanding. Extensive and delicious breakfast and amazing evening dinner from a young chef who has just gained a Michelin star. The first of many to come I would suggest. Absolutely amazing taste experiences. A highlight of our stay were our snow shoe walks with the owner of the hotel. His genuine warm hospitality filters down to his staff. A great source of information as well. Great hotels are those that treat you like a valued and welcome guest and this was how we felt at DV Chalet. A truly wonderful hotel.

We have just returned form a week stay in DV Chalet in Madonna di Campiglio and we fell in love with the place. It has a character and mountain spirit - it's cosy, and friendly, yet very stylish, with beautifully designed, spacious interiors. The food was great, we had a
few course dinner each evening, so we could sample the flavours of the local cuisine, and the food at the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant Dolomieu, was just perfect (the goat milk risotto was heavenly!). We enjoyed the good food, amazing wines (thanks Pasquale!), and the friendliness of the staff. The staff would go extra length to provide the best possible service and accommodate our requests. We were travelling with a 6 month old baby, and the staff was always ready to help to make his and our stay most comfortable (which included arranging a good nanny). Special thanks go to Sandra, Francesca, and of course the owner of the hotel, who would give us any help needed.
The location is very good within a few minutes walk to the main shopping street, and the views from the hotel are amazing. Campiglio is a great place for skiing and also apres ski activities, the choice is really great. And the town is really lovely to take a walk.
Overall, we enjoyed the stay very much and would definitely recommend the DV Chalet to anyone considering going to Campiglio. Grazie mille!!!

Our first real holiday with our toddler and one that we will keep in our memories a long time (until our next holiday there!). Great experience from the kindness of the receptionist on the phone when we booked our last minute holiday…
The room was large, well designed and well thought out, with an in-room sauna, lots of storage for suitcases and enough place for our little tot to play.
Though the hotel is not specifically a kids hotel, the top star restaurant staff went out of their way to make our meals comfortable for the entire family. Food was of high standards both in quality and presentation, as was the set out and service.
After meals, a cozy living room with fireplace encouraged socialising with other guests. This obviously made the trip as we met really nice people we ended up doing things with during the day.
Excursions are organised daily by the hotel, with professional guides and a hotel vehicle.
Tiziano, the owner, took us on a peak to look for groundhogs which was a unique experience!

Very attentive service, beautiful rooms, amazing facilities. We were there for our honeymoon and we stayed in the suite room. It was a great experience. We have had a great impression when we called the hotel just before our trip, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. When we got there, the valet service and check-in process and the walk around was spectacle. Not to mention the beautiful lounge, the unique and beautiful spa and swimming pool. Don't forget to go to the swimming area, there's one room with 4 warm water bed that you can lay down and just fall asleep. Importantly, the cuisine is also beautifully done. We had enjoyed so much the food, the drinks and the friendly staff. Moreover, we have booked this trip to go on and trekking with the group of people who stayed at the hotel. This trip was all organized for free by the hotel. Again, impressive trip and great memory. Over all, it was an impressive trip. Don't want to come home. Love DV Chalet Boutique hotel & spa!!
Ps. Do enjoy the breakfast. It is unique, healthy, and delicious!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great! Well designed and comfortable.

The whole structure is perfect. The hotel is charmy and cozy and super clean; The SPA is beautiful and the massage service is amazing they have massages for pregnant women too. My wife get one and the results was amazing. The restaurant is probably the best I've ever been. If you stay at the hotel you can eat at the standard gourmet traditional restaurant or you can join the Michelin rated restaurant managed by Enrico. For being a michelin rated restaurant the price is high but not crazy like most of the Madonna di Campiglio restaurant and the quality of food is outstanding. Chef Enrico mixes tradition and nouvelle cousune in a perfect way. We ate twice and the second time he changed the menu for us proposing everything outside the menu. In the hall they also have a room for getting high level cigars and tasting grappas, rhums, Brandies etc.
If you are staying in Madonna and you are not sleeping at the hotel YOU MUST GO to the Dolomieu restaurant and meet the Chef Enrico.
Last but not least the people from the conciergie, restaurant, spa are polite and kind.

Room Tip: There are different ranges of rooms. The standard ones are big and cozy with balcony and big bathroo...

I can only reiterate all of the comments below. Superb in every respect - accomodation, food, service, staff, decor, immaculately clean. When we were stranded in Pinzolo, the owner himself drove 15km to pick us up, for no charge. Says it all. Faultless. Well done !
