Stayed here for a few nights as part of a road trip, as it was a good base to ski from, and explore Torino.
Fantastic hotel, with very helpful staff. Rooms are very big, nicely decorated and ours had a fantastic view of the lake. The rooms have decently sized LCD tv's.
Breakfast is continental, and a buffet, in a pleasant dining room. There is also an outdoor breakfast area just outside the dining room, overlooking the lake. There is also a restaurant and bar which does discount for guests next door.
The hotel is down a quiet road, about a 5 minute (€15) taxi ride from Avigliana train station. The reception staff were very happy to assist in making taxi bookings. In avigliana there are a variety of restaurants and shops. We had amazing (and massive) pizzas from a little pizzeria about 500m up the main road from the train station, on the right hand side.
Avigliana is about an hour from the Bardonecchia ski resort (held then Winter Olympics in 2006...) by train, and about 30 minutes by train from the centre of Torino.
I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel, and hope to go back in the summer, to do some cycling/mountain biking.
