We had gps issues getting to Vals from Ronchamp and wound up arriving there 3hrs late. Which meant we missed our massage and entry to the Therme Vals booking that we'd made months ago. By this time we were somewhat frazzled and the lovely woman behind the desk rebooked these things for us for the next day and I don't know what she said to the people at the baths, but she managed to do this all for us at no extra charge.
The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and overall the hotel seems well designed. Our time in Vals was one of the highlights of our trip and I believe we owe part of that to our lovely lady at the hotel who transformed our initially stressful situation into a fantastic day at the spa.
