Booked for a week through Neilson and for the price we paid my expectations were very low. The reception area had old food and litter with no sign of a cleaner and the steps to the entrance were decorated with someone's abandoned dirty laundry. The girl on check in was helpful and efficient and whilst the apartment stank of stale... More

New year 2014/2015 - Was not impressed with the hotel before we even got there. I booked through booking.com for myself and two friends. The first half of the payment was taken straight away and we expected the second half to be taken 1 month before our arrival. 1 month before our holiday we had an email to say they... More

Very basic but totally ok - very clean, well appointed, free wifi, good TV , lots of towels and bedding - everything worked easily... More

The hotel location is really convenient and central, close to the shops and delicious restaurants. The rooms/apartments are small: we had an apartment for 4 people and two of us were in the sitting room. We had a great stay overall though.

The hotel location is really convenient and central, close to the shops, lifts up to the piste, ski hire shop is next door and delicious restaurants. However the rooms/apartments are very small.

Very pleased as was a very last minute booking. Staff helpful, clean room and did the job. Bit of a push and shove on the bus on the morning though to get to ski school! Would have been great to have two strawberry buses turning up at peak times.

We stayed here as a family of 5. We found the apartment to be quite small. We paid an additional €50 to gaurantee a good room, and a view, which we got. The ski room was our biggest complaint, its too narrow and really hard to get your boots on when there are a few people about. The light is... More

Central location & reasonable size rooms (we had a seven person apartment for five of us). Cleanliness wasn't great, with basic maintenance not attended to unless you requested it from reception (staff were very good). Two of the four sinks in our apartment were completely blocked when we arrived, & the hob only had two functioning rings out of four.... More

Pretty standard P&V residence but well maintained, clean and friendly helpful staff. The downside is that access to the slopes/lifts is a long walk or by the infrequent (but reasonably punctual) ski bus

Rocked up to the accommodation slightly hungover, not quite knowing what to expect as I read a few reviews on here before I flew!....but I was surprised, reception was friendly.(50€ for early checking).rooms were small but you have to expect that. Amazing views from the balcony.
