“Great value, friendly staff”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We stayed here on a family skiing holiday for a week in February 2013 and I was very pleased.

The positives:

- The staff were very helpful about accommodating our 3-month-old baby daughter - including removing one of the beds and putting up a travel cot.
- The buffet breakfast was great, with a range of pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice and plenty to set you up for a day on the slopes.
- Most of the meals (with the exception of one or two) were enjoyable. More what I would describe as solid Alpine fare (tartiflette, a fair bit of cheese, cream, bacon used, etc etc) than super-swish cuisine but flavoursome and very competently executed. Drinks were good value, too.
- The hotel is very close to a ski bus stop and particularly convenient for La Linga. (NB the maps shown on the bus stop signs are completely unintelligible and appear to show a mirror image of the actual route...)
- Convenient basement ski storage and boot warmers.

The negatives:

- While the room was plenty big enough for a couple with a baby, it was not super large and I imagine that if there had been a 3rd grown-up it would have been rather cramped.
- The decor was getting a bit tired.
- Quite hard to strike a balance at night between temperature and noise: windows all closed = overheating, window open = some traffic noise.

Reviewed 4 March 2013

This is a conveniently sited hotel for skiing, close to a ski bus stop that serves the Linga and Super Chatel lifts. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. My only complaint is that the rooms (and particularly the toilets within them) are very small, to the extent that it is quite difficult to use the toilet with the door closed.

Room Tip: Not surprisingly, rooms away from the road are quieter.
