Having just read the previous very negative review I felt compelled to write my very first review as I disagree with just about everything written.
A group of 6 adults stayed here over New Year this year being our second visit. From the outset we were made to feel very welcome and all staff from cleaners to kitchen staff were extremely friendly and above all helpful.
We all had basic rooms which were not huge but enough room for two and plenty hanging space. All our rooms over looked the slope and the view was wonderful.
The hotel is not in the centre of Sauze d'Oulx but the location was perfect as almost ski in and out. To get to the centre of town does involve a walk up a very steep hill but is manageable if your fit and I would if thought most people that went skiing had some level of fitness so really not a huge problem. If it is then Bruno the owner is more than happy to offer a lift into town and it is a very easy walk back. There is also the ski bus which stops close by and we used this a few times to take us up into town for happy hour.
The only disappointment for us was the evening meal. Starters were always tasty consisting of either soup or pasta but the main course was generally not good and only Luke warm as served on cold plates. We never encountered a frozen dessert and on the whole they were very good. There was always fresh ham and cheese along with croissant and cake for breakfast. Yes only cornflakes and coco pops on offer in the way of cereal but we never went hungry as there were plenty other items to choose.
I have to say that none of us found the bed uncomfortable and because hotel is not in centre we always had a good nights sleep as did not get disturbed by drunken revellers. We stayed in Sauze town some years ago and found it to be very noisy so we much preferred being just out of centre.
The bar area is great. Roaring fire every night, two large comfy sofas if you wish to relax and plenty of tables to sit round whilst enjoying a drink which were no more expensive than any of the bars in town, unless it was happy hour at some if the bars. Oh and just one other thing don't ever recall the hotel smelling in fact just the opposite it always smelt very nice as there were air fresheners dotted around.
We enjoyed our stay so much we will return. What would make this hotel even better would be an improvement in the evening meal but this won't stop us returning.
