This hotel is in need of refurbishment, but don't let that put you off. It is spotlessly clean, and the proprietors give a very good and friendly service. The structure and fixtures and fittings are old fashioned, so don't go if you only want a place like an Ibis or a Novotel - this is a traditional, old fashioned, provincial, and very French hotel, and we loved it. Breakfast is very French (as you would expect) with fruit juice, a massive basket of breads and croissants, brioches etc and as much fresh coffee as you want. Location is perfect, bang in the middle of le Bourg d'Oisans at the foot of the iconic Alpe d'Huez climb. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby, and a very good cycle shop opposite. Parking is round the back by the swimming pool (which was not in use during our stay, but I would imagine it is fantastic in the summer).
The lift is the original model Otis as installed by Noah in the Ark, but it works, just keep your fingers out of the gate and be patient when it goes in the opposite direction you intended - or you could always use the stairs, they are shallow and easy enough to run up two at a time.
We stayed here for 3 nights and will stay here again if we are back in this area.
