Easter 2013 was spent at The Savoy edelweiss Sestriere. Obviously reviews are only a personal view so each to their own however this small Hotel is great and we would not hesitate to go back. Staff were brilliant attentive and spoke good English, ashamed to say I have no Italian. The food was always plentiful and with a good choice, Breakfast was not the best buffet style we've ever had but more than enough to start your day, with hot and cold choice. I can't comment on small rooms as we paid extra for comforts which where big, we where lucky enough to have a HUGE family room which was very pleasant with a lovely bathroom although the shower cubicle could do with an update. Our children 17 and 19 had a twin comfort room with a small balcony and was again very spacious. Both rooms had more storage space then we have ever had when skiing which we've been doing for over 25yrs.They had satellite TV with no english channels we could find but then your in Italy. Do we have italian TV at home? no so we didnt expect to get BBC!!
The lounge and bar area are very pleasant with plenty of space and comfortable seating. Kids loved the pool table. The spa is not the most luxurious but has hot tub steam room sauna, relaxation room, hot bed and showers, very pleasant to ease those tired muscles!!.
The ski deposit is excellant and only a very short 5 minute walk in the morning, its downhill to ski school and lifts and so a bonus not to have to carry equipment, it is extra if you want to have boots on hot racks but a minimal price for the week..
If you want white modern airy interiors then dont go here, The Savoy Edelweiss is a beautiful old building with wooden paneling and cosy interiors, we had a wonderful week and will certainly look to return one day with out any hesitation.
