Stayed with my wife for a weekend towards the end of the season; often, tempers are getting a little frayed by this time and staff and management are looking forward to things quietening down. But the service was friendly and faultless; the redoubtable Thierry, who has a nice habit of announcing everything in French and then again in English, can not do enough. The comfortable bar is a good focal point; the views across the road to the slopes are great, from here and from the rooms. But even a room at 'the back' means a view of the pretty village and Mont Chery. Our room (Centauree) was big, comfortable, with a mezzanine 'loft' perfect for two kids; we left ours behind on this trip. Bed was a large zip-together type, very comfortable.
There's a beginner lift right opposite, and the other (Chavannes bubble and Chavannes Express TS) are a few yards away.
Breakfasts were terrific; the usual wide buffet spread, with eggs and bacon and (French) sausage too for les rosbifs. Jams are homemade.
We didn;t have an evening meal there - but the menu looks appetising, choice of starters, mid course, then choice of two mains, cheese, choice of pudding, Wine list was ungrabby - starting at €12 a bottle.
Then there's the spa. It's through a wierd, but not unattractive, tunnel under the road and the range of Decleor and Thalgo treatments is impressive. There's a pool, and a whirlpool - both could be warmer. The steam room looked impressive but was out of order on our weekend, with a promise to fix it on Monday. All in all, if you're into spas, this ticks a lot of boxes.
In short; a great, unpretentious, well-managed and well-staffed hotel with charm and character right on the slopes.
