“Best location, cleanest 2* hotel. Great home cooked food”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

As its only a 2* we didn't expect much, we were presently surprised. By the location, 2 minute walk to the ski lift and ski hire shop, a great pizza restaurant. And if you want to use either of the other ski lifts, or go to town, the free town bus picks you up right outside the hotel (runs every ten mins). If you don't want to go out on an evening, they serve a different set menu each night. Have to say I'm a very fussy eater, really guys the food was just the best. Home cooked too.
Breakfast was simple, but you could choose something off the menu if you wanted.
They is no lift, as its only has 2 floors, 3 if you included the lower floor where the ski boot room is.
The owner and staff pride themselves on cleanest, and boy is it clean. You'd be hard pushed to even find a speck of dust. Comfortable, warm rooms. No hair dryers, (but the staff offered us their personal ones). It didn't take that long for our hair to dry naturally. Will be going back at some point with out a doubt. We will be calling them personally to book again.

Room Tip: Request a room at the front of the hotel, balcony and great views.

Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

Stayed for 5 nights in February, chosen as it is one of the few hotels to allow stays of less than a week during the high season. Rooms are clean, small, a little tired, can be noisy if other guests are partying (or even talking) in their rooms. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast is limited and a little disappointing. Staff friendly and helpful. We only ate once in the evening, the fondue was delicious but Le Vieux Fort and Le Fiacre in Chatel were better. The hotel is just up from the Barbossine lift which gives access to red, black and off piste runs and from there on to the Portes du Soleil. It is less well placed for the area where the ski schools are, Pre La Jou, which is 30 mins and two (frequent and free, but packed) bus rides away.
