The first positive thing about this hotel is that I was able to check availability and book online, something that not many hotels in Italy allow you to. The second big positive is the food, which was varied and delicious, and prepared very carefully. The pasta and the rice were cooked to perfection, and attention was given to the buffet as well, which is often overlooked in other establishments.
The hotel is a family-run establishment, and one cannot fail to notice it. The owner greets all the guests at both breakfast and dinner, and the staircase shows his numerous watercolours. His wife is the cook and is rarely seen as she must spend the whole day in the kitchen. The son is the maitre and deals with all practical issues, including advising on the wines in the extensive wine list.
The hotel is a short walk, 5-10 minutes, from the slopes and provides a shuttle service which I have not tried as I preferred to walk. The hotel facilities are very good, including a bright swimming pool with a great view on the mountains, and saunas. The wellness centre (which includes the pool) closes at 6:30pm, which helps everyone be ready for dinner at 7:00-7:30 (winter times, not sure about summer).
Everyone is very very helpful and approachable, and seem to genuinely care about their guests.
