We stayed here in December with our family. We were in the beginning disappointed because the hotel looks a lot nicer on the website photos then in reality. The rooms are a bit old, but the beds are good and everything worked fine. What we missed is that there is no longer a restaurant for lunch/dinner (only breakfast). There is a lobby where you can sit, but it is really dark and we did not find it attractive to sit. Also it closed at 10 pm so in the evening if you want a drink or so you have to go outside the hotel.
The staff is very friendly and helpful so that makes up for some of the things missing. If you are staying with kids and need an easy hotel (across the street from ski hire/skischool, supermarket, but a bit of a walk to the lifts) and you don't care much about atmosphere then it is ok.
We only used the sauna/hottubs once but it is nice to have it in the hotel.
We enjoyed spending some time at the hotel nearby at the Ferienart hotel, there they have a lovely spa and swimming pool.
