We received a good welcome from Frederico, the manager, when we arrived.
Our room had plenty of space for the two of us, was clean and warm, and the balcony overlooked the street at the front of the hotel. Frederico & his staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. He even opened the restaurant and prepared a meal for just us two one evening when other local restaurants were closed. The breakfasts were very good, & the selection of foods to suit all tastes. There is a limited selection of restaurants in this part of Chatel, but would recommend Le Renard which serves an excellent Menu du Jour. The Eliova L'eau Vive was quiet during the 6 nights of our stay, but the sound of snowploughs did wake us bright & early 3or 4 mornings! It's a great budget hotel, & access to the Linga gondola within 3 mins walk from hotel. Also good shuttle bus service between the 3main lift areas. All in all, would stay here again.
