Ranked #10 of 31 Hotels in Sauze d'Oulx
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2013

We booked Edelweiss as a low cost half board option and apart from the room, which was small but with a great view and balcony, everything was excellent and much better than can reasonably be expected for the price. All the good points mentioned by other reviewers are spot on, it is an easy ski out, slightly awkward ski in or a 3-5 minute walk to the lift taking you to the centre of the Sportina area so a great place to stay for active skiers. The bar and restaurant area is very welcoming with a roaring fire and comfortable settees. It was very easy to meet and socialise with the other guests. It is a family run hotel and everybody went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. The food was typical Italian mountain food, a lot of ham, cheese and pasta with some good meat dishes on some nights. Bruno's wife runs the kitchen and they have taken on board the request for more fruit and vegetables but not quite in the way we expect with mountainous fruit and salad bowls appearing for one night each.
The room had all the essentials and never ran out of hot water, though we had the lower grade room it was more than adequate .
Sauze is walkable especially back down the hill but Bruno will take you into town from 5.30pm. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all but the most dedicated party goers or gastronomes, for an excellent value stay.

Room Tip: A balcony gives excellent views and there are different classes of room

We have just arrived home from the Hotel Edelweiss and we had a fantastic stay there. We were in a family group of 20 and it was perfect for all our needs. Plenty of seating areas to relax in the evenings. The staff were very helpful and Bruno regularly gave us all a lift in to Sauze on an evening. The Hotel was warm and inviting. The bar area was warm with a real fire burning each day. It was spotlessly clean and we found the food to be plentiful. The ski lift is at the end of the garden although it is a steep climb down for non skiiers each day. There was a lovely veranda to sit outside each day and the weather was perfect. I would certainly consider returning next year and recommending to family and friends.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room at the front of the hotel as the views ae magnificent.

It was clean, friendly, and the staff where very helpful Bruno the owner will help you get to places by popping you about with his mini buss,he will do it for nothing but we gave him something as he was very helpful.
Luca is the barman and again he was very helpful
The food is OK
You have a starter .the soup was very good
Main. pasta or meat and potatoes, OK

We were lucky, the snow was great and it was simple to ski down to the lift which never had a queue. The hotel was spotlessly clean, warm verging on hot with lashings of hot water. All the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A good walk up hill into town but usually someone will give you a lift.
Now onto the food, it could be so much better. Breakfast was not too bad but some fresh bread please not rock hard rolls from the freezer. Dinner- starters, especially the soup, was nice, shame about the rolls again. Main course a big let down, hardly a portion and usually from the freezer with mixed temperatures on the same plate. Vegetarians prepare yourselves for pea or courgette omelette or tomato slices and cheese. Sometimes you get a vegetable with your meal but no always. Take some extra euro with you for a decent meal or three out in town.

Room Tip: 3 adults in a room is more than friendly

I stayed at this hotel years ago, Bruno owned it back then and Luca worked the bar, sounds like nothing much has changed. I found it a lovely clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff which is lovely, would love to revisit sometime .. and the couple of times we stayed you could ski down to the chair lift as we had fresh falls of snow each time, on occassions we did cheat and ski into Sauze itself, had a few beers and then got a taxi back to save our legs from the trek from the lift to the hotel on the way home ...

Room Tip: balcony a necessity.

First of all I have to say, from my experience, I do not understand some of the negative comments in some of the earlier reviews for this hotel. My Family group, 6 couples, found it to be one of our best skiing hotel stays ever, and we’ve stayed in quite a few. Yes the bedrooms aren’t the biggest, but we had a large comfortable bed, enough storage for our clothes and cases, and a lovely size bathroom, what more do you need? The rooms were kept clean and the ‘maid’ even folded and tidied up some of our things. Breakfast was continental as you would expect in a European hotel. There was always plenty of Ham, Cheese, Eggs, Croissants, Bread, Cakes, drinks and preserves available. There was a choice of Evening meal, made the night before to prevent wastage – good idea. The food was simple and tasty and there was plenty of it. We never came out of the dining room feeling we needed something more, totally the opposite and we could not manage desert every night. The hotel was nice and quiet so you do get a good nights sleep, …..well at least until about 7:30am when the local dogs decide it’s waking up time.
The staff were excellent, there was always someone in the reception area willing to help in any way they could.
The hotel is a short distance away from the centre of Sauze, but it was a steep climb and not something that was welcome after a hard day skiing. The owner, Bruno, would offer to take you in his car up to the town. All part of the service. One evening 6 of us were queuing at the ski bus stop to go up to the town and Bruno spotted us as he was driving in the opposite direction. He stopped, did a U turned and gave us a lift up to town, it was obviously out of his way, but he was happy to do that and would not accept any payment. Brilliant!. Another night there were many people wanting to go up to town so he just drove back and forth until all of us were transported up to town.
On New Years eve we went up to the town after dinner in order to celebrate the New Year but we found that the bars weren’t as lively as when we had been a few years previously. Outside, the locals set off big fire works in the street so it can be a little bit dangerous (Not sure what our H&S Exec would make of this) so we decided to go back to the hotel. Apart from us and the hotel staff, the hotel was empty. They had invited some of their friends around to celebrate the New Year, so we felt we may have been gate crashing their party, but they made us feel very welcome and we all joined in with the celebrations and a god time was had by all.
Overall, we though that the hotel was ideal, it claims to be ski-in ski-out and it certainly was for us, but I can imagine it would be one of the first to loose that facility as the snow line recedes.

Stayed for our ski trip in Feb. Unfortunately there had been no snow for a while so the small run to the lift was not open and a killer on the legs but all your fellow skiers will egg you tempting you with a nice cold beer from the bar balcony. lol. The hotel is up a hill which your luggage will be transported to. The walk into sauze is a killer but the hotelier Bruno is a legend and will give you a lift up the hill if you let him know in advance. The food leaves a little to be desired but is hot and an ample amount. Do try the restaurant in Sauze right at the top on its own, cant remember what is called. Looks like a little underground cabin and has the best steak I have ever tasted. Run by an old Italian couple. All staff are helpful and eager to speak English. I found the Italians very friendly and inviting compared to other countries and will deffo be going back. We had some trouble with a group of lads making noise on the first night but the rep was very quick to sort this out and did not ruin the rest of hol. Sauze is a giant ski area and take up the day to Montgenevre for the day. The run back to the hotel is a red narrow tree run but good beginners should be able to negotiate, watch out for the brook that runs along it. I recommend the Hotel Edelweiss as a budget or full price hol but would recommend a few weeks on the stepper machine at the gym before hand to get those legs strengthened!

Room Tip: Request room with a balcony, have a nice view.
