“Good for "transit" purposes only.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

We spent one night in La Tourmaline and have mixed feelings about it. The room is basic and to our taste outdated (the room we had definitely does not match the picture on tripadvisor !). The bathroom in general needs to be refreshed and bathtub to be changed (incl. tiling). The restaurant looks nice, starter was good but do not order the grilled faux-filet ... I only tasted the smoke of the chimney and no more meat !! Watch out for the wine you order ... bottle vs pricelist could end up being different (check your bill also for any drinks when you check out ... ). The pool was refreshing (small pool) and the spa is basic. The staff is friendly - the only issue we had is that there was never anyone at the reception. We are not coming back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

This is an excellent place to overnight if, for example, you don't want to (or can't) get up to La Plagne in darkness. Rooms are clean and quiet - not the last word in luxury or modernity, but perfectly adequate. They are cursed, of course, with dim lighting, and wifi is not great (although it's perfectly OK in the public areas.

Dinner was entirely pleasant, with big portions, and very reasonably priced, and the buffet breakfast was excellent.

Service was friendly, quick and efficient.

Strongly recommended as a pleasant, no nonsense, good value stopover.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Husband and I stayed two nights in this hotel, beginning January. The bedroom was basic but comfortable. The bed was slightly short (we're not overly tall but the bed was shorter than I'm used to) but comfortable and the sheets were clean. Bathroom also clean and functional.

Breakfast was a very French affair with lots of lovely bread, jams, cheeses, pain au chocolat, good coffee etc.

This hotel really came into its own, however, with the service. Neither my husband or I speak any French but the receptionist spoke excellent English and was very friendly and happy to help. On New Year's day, we wanted to take advantage of the spa facilities. The staff at the hotel, both the receptionist and the woman in charge of the spa were exceptionally helpful. The scrub and massage we had was wonderful. Later we used the sauna and jacuzzi. Both were lovely, especially with the view of the snow-clad mountains from the jacuzzi.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
