Four of us stayed at the Hotel Edelweiss at the end of February 2013. Bruno, the owner, Luca, his bar manager and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. The hotel is either a 20 minute walk up the hill to the town of Sauze D'Oulx or a shorter 10 minute walk up a steeper hill, but Bruno was always on hand to take us up in the evenings for no charge.
We ate out a couple of times as a treat (including a birthday), but other than that, the food was fine. Soups or pasta for starters, usually a meat and veg/potato main and fruit/ice cream/profiterols for pudding.
The bar and seating area was lovely. Always a roaring log fire and guests were respectful that each party got a turn on the sofas each night, with the others mixing if they wished at the tables. Bar snacks - crisps and mini pizza bites on hand from Apres Ski until dinner.
Rooms were fine, nothing extravagant but do ask for a double room or balcony if you wish, as these are limited. The shower was lovely and hot! We stayed above the bar but were never affected by any noise. Apparently it can be noisy if you are on the floor next to the bar, or downstairs on the way to the boot room.
The ski in and ski out is more than ideal. The slope is about 20 meters from the hotel for ski in, and to ski out, you ski down the hill about 100 metres to the Jovenceaux lift - which you can take down in the evenings if you are too tired to ski down from the mountain!
A superb little hotel and a great location - so not be put off that it is not in the town of Sauze - this is far nicer, unless you want to ne out on the town every night. We are hoping to return for Xmas this year, we were so impressed.
