Myself and a friend went here for a week long trip in Jan 2011. The hotel is in a fantastic location, you just can't beat it - right on the slopes, ski out and in, brilliant! The staff are English and very very friendly and helpful, nothing is a problem. They even organise to get your ski passes when you arrive which is a nice touch. However some little things let it down - it is very laid back which can be a bonus, but we had a radiator that you couldn't turn down and it took 5 days to get that sorted, which was a shame as we had to open our windows at night. Apparently their new boiler is extra good so it is a very warm hotel! Rooms are also very small. However the location and friendliness of the staff made up for some issues we had. The food is really tasty - and as a vegetarian, the chef was happy to whip up something for me if there wasn't anything on the menu (if there was a vege starter they don't mind making it main size). The bar is well stocked and the fire blazes all afternoon which is really cozy. I loved the 4pm afternoon tea as everyone would enjoy a cuppa and share stories of the days events.
The ski hire at Delavay was very good, both my friend and I were given new boots and skis and I felt is was reasonably priced (6 days for me with short skis was €64, my friends longer skis were €86) - the hotel will give you a 20% discount voucher.
La Pela is a nice place to have a fondue - €17. Their carafes of wine are really good value and it's nice wine.
The Irish pub below the Canadian bar is great - sit at the bar and the boys behind the bar are very chatty, good way to spend an evening.
I think I would go back based on location and how lovely the staff were.
