Stayed here in March 2014, and wanted to recommend the hotel for the fantastic holiday.
It is in fantastic location at the foot of the piste, and we had a room with balcony overlooking the slopes. There is a short walk though an underground car park, and then you are on the snow. a bit of polling required to the main lift, but then you can ski right back to the door of the garage.
Venue great for beginners and Intermediates. Some of the lifts are a bit slow, and you do have drag lifts to the two highest runs, but plenty on offer from the main chairs. Watch out for weekend in Sauze. Really long queues when we were there, which were never replicated in Sestriere.
What made the holiday was the service in the hotel. The manager and his team made everyone feel welcome from the moment they arrived, and it was noticeable how many return visitors were greeted as they arrived in the hotel.
I was nervous about the food, as there were many comments left on here about the timing and the quality. You are restricted by the timings, but we never found that to be much of an issue, and we never once found that there was nothing we could eat. in fact, although some of the dishes were on each night, you would have to be there a while before you had tried everything.
I remember a comment about the star rating of the hotel being generous, and maybe the truth is, that it is a 3 star hotel with 5 star service.
We loved it and would definitely consider returning, as long as the same team are running the venue.
