I only booked last minute with average expectations of 3 star French fare but was delighted to find this gem of an English/American family run hotel offering 5 star levels of service. Breakfasts are all you can eat, cereals / toast with eggs, cheese and ham washed down with plenty of delicious coffee. The perfect fuel for a long days... More

The restaurant serves excellent cuisine. The reception staff are no end of gracious helpfulness and the free shuttle to the ski lift worth its weight... More

There is a lovely pool and we thought the food was excellent. The staff were also excellent throughout, really friendly and helpful and... More

The room was cosy,... More

The hotel is warm and comfortable. Our room was quite small for three people to put it mildly. There was a very limited amount of storage and it would have been good to have had some hooks on the walls and doors for hanging coats. You need to bring your own toiletries as the soap is in an annoying dispenser.... More
