We stayed here 20th Jan to the 27th Jan. Excellent hotel as far as skiing standards are concerned. The rooms are big, and comfy. You can control the heating. The bathroom was excellent and never short of hot water. Considering i am a fussy eater i thought i might have struggled to eat in the evenings (we went half board) but it wasn't a problem. The food was a high standard and all the waiters were lovely. You had a set menu eat night and you could choose from 3 things for your starter, main.. and then ice cream, cakes etc for dessert. I could not complain. And if you didn't like it, it wasn't a problem. The breakfast was by far the best, scrambled egg, bacon, bakery ( which was beautiful) fruits, hams, cheeses etc. Was beautiful. There was a free bus that takes you to the lift, that runs between 8.30 (i think)... and 10. And then 3.30 and 5. This was so useful and we used it everyday. There is a free public bus that runs passed but only one. I do wish the bus did start its pick ups a little earlier than 3.30. We used the spa for one night, it was free of charge. It wasn't anything special. But use it, if its free!
The skiing was pefect!!! Loved the pistes and we didn't get bored. I'll definitely be visiting this hotel again soon. Couldn't really fault it.
PS.. its a 4* by skiing concerns.
