The drive up to the hotel took around 1 hour 45 from chamberry but the last 30 mins consisted of very bendy and very steep roads so not for the faint hearted, The hotel is right by many bars and restaurants, ski hire and supermarkets. The bowling alley and sports centre is about a 10 mins walk away. When we arrived we had been given a lower floor room... i mentioned that i was not happy being in the basement and straight away we were given a better room. When booking make sure you request a high floor room or you may get a room in the basement with staff and the spa (any room with 00 before the number is basement)
Our room was luxurious. There are three types of room. Room with balcony, mountain view room with balcony and junior suite with balcony. The latter being the most expensive. The interior of the room was fantastic. Modern with a lovely comfy bed. Yes the beds are two singles pushed together but they are very comfy with memory foam topping. The bathroom is a wet room which was great. They only change your towels once a week but if you leave them outside the bathroom on the floor they will change them more often. We had them changed three times and put them on the towel rail in he bathroom to dry other times. Hair dryers in all rooms but no iron or ironing board. We requested one and were given one straight away. The tv has 4 english channels, bbc ireland 1 and bbc ireland 2, alba and music.
Ski Room/Ski in/out:
The ski room is big enough to accommodate all guests. make sure you take note of your boot/skis number in case somebody accidentally picks yours up.
The hotel is not ski in ski out, but it is close enough. If you walk 100 metres around the back of the hotel, there is a slope to the left that you can get on and it takes you straight to the main slopes/ski lifts. Alternatively you can get a bus that picks you up directly outside the hotel and drops you off a different points in the resort, one being at ski school. To get back, you can either walk, or take the big magic carpet the top of the entry slope. This brings you to the fitzroy and if you walk in front of the fitzroy to the right, the bus stop is just at the top their and takes you back to the tango.
Breakfast is brilliant. You have hot and cold options. Tea/coffee/juices. Bacon/sausages/scarmbled egg/ boiled eggs/beans/porridge/potatoes/cereals/museli/breads/jams/pates/coissants/ham/cheese/salad. It is faultless
Dinner is also faultess. Yes it is only two course, its a set meu and portions are small, but they are more than adequate. The food is delicious. The best food i have ever eaten. The chefs are super talented. They have meats such as viel, venison, beef, pork, chicken, lamb, cod and fish stew. The starters are also fantastic, soups/salmon/bruschetta etc. If you do not like the menu. do not hesitate to ask. We are not fish eaters and they offered us alternatives to the set menu. We had ribs and they were delicious. The desserts are not included but i highly recommend them. They are around 3 euros to 10 euros. Again they are well presented and faultless. You cannot fault the waiters and waitresses. They are attentive, happy and helpful. Non of the staff can do too much for you, they are all great.
The dinner is done in two sitting, 6:30 and 8:30.. book your sitting at breakfast.Breakfast is 7:30-10:00. They will cater for anyone leaving to go home earlier than this. we were ever on a table with anyone else, as people claim, but the tables are close together however they spread people out if they can!
The bar is not as busy as most say. The happy hour runs 8-10, where you get two of the same drink BOGOF. drinks are quite expensive, 3.90 for a coke/lemonade and 6.90 for a pint of heineken. There are cocktails for 8 euros. Be prepared to pay extortionate prices throughout the resort though, with hot chocs at about 5 euros and burgers 9 euros, chips 6.50 euros. Its eye wateringly dear!!!
The spa: Looked great but expensive, The offer a good service at the sports centre and for much cheaper.
Over all, this hotel was brilliant. The best i have ever stayed in. I would recommend it to everyone as the service is fantastic, the rooms are amazing and the food is the best you will ever have.
I can answer all queries if you have any!!
