What a fabulous hotel?
Very friendly helpful staff. Near the lift (100m) to main square where the main Tignes lifts are, ie the Parafour x6 chair and gondola lift. A path to the other lower lift also leads from the square too, so it's all here. The area is pleasant too with stall in the streets twice a week selling local cheese and cold meats. There are nice gift shops too, not selling the usual tat but they have French flair to offer nice things.
The hotel itself is a gem. The meals offered each night are of amazing quality. You are offered two choices of starter, main and desert most nights, except when they have a special meal on the menu. The land and sea buffet on one night is a sight to behold - half crabs, oysters, salmon, urchin, mussels, prawns, lobster - and that's is only the sea selection.
Breakfast is a typical but varied buffet selection.
The rooms are fine, and many have great views of the pistes and mountains, but are nothing too special. Mine was fine but did suffer with noisy plumbing!
Many people have said to me that Tignes is ugly, and I am surprised as from my perspective I thought it was great, but we had loads of snow so everything looked white and pretty.
I stayed with family over Christmas and had a wonderful time so would recommend this hotel and resort to others.
