Hotel Regina is, as advertised, a 2 star hotel so don't expect a five star experience but it is one of the best 2 star hotels we have stayed at in France. The Aussie owners are attentive and work very hard to make your stay as good as possible. The rooms are a decent size with comfy beds and nice bed linen. During our stay the weather was much warmer than a typical February and even with all our radiators turned off the room was still too warm at night due to the number of pipes passing through the room to the rest of the hotel. We tried sleeping with the window open but whilst the road outside the hotel is a secondary road there are vehicles that use it and as a result sleep was a bit disrupted. To be fair to the owners, there it was unseasonably warm and not much the owners could do to help on this!
The property has clearly been updated and the decor is generally good but small things like dripping taps could easily be fixed.
The breakfast is amazing - one of the best we have had. We did not try other meals but the hotel offers drinks at competitive prices and is happy to recommend and help book up places to eat which is very useful.
The hotel is well placed for skiing being a short walk from the bottom of Bettex cable car or you can take the free bus. We hired skis at the mid station of Bettex so we could walk to and from the lift in our shoes and leave boots and skis up at the mid station as the ski shop has lockers for overnight storage - makes skiing with kids so much happier!
Overall a great hotel, a few small things to get on top of but the owners work incredibly hard to make your stay enjoyable.
(PS - I actually think that the hotel is priced too cheaply and could charge more)
