You can't beat family-run hotels for warmth and service and the Continental at Selva proves the point. The Linder family clearly care about the quality of service they provide - and the same is true of the staff, from the cleaners through to the waiters and waitresses.
The Continental has a long history but has been sympathetically modernised. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a large bathroom. It lacked a bath, which would've been a real bonus after a day of skiing, but the shower was fantastically powerful and therapeutic. Cleanliness was second to none. The food was exceptional, particularly in the evenings, and there was a great selection of wines. There's a spa, including saunas and a steam room.
Location is an interesting one. On the one hand it's ideal for nursery slopes and the Dantercepies gondola lift but if you fancy spending the evenings in the town centre bars, be prepared for a punishing 10-15 minute walk uphill to get back to the hotel.
Selva itself is a lovely resort and the scenery is stunning. The ski areas aren't as joined up as they could be and it's not the best place in the world for beginners but for intermediates it's a dream.
